EuroBLECH 2022: The gateway to a smarter future 22 September 2022

After four years, the sheet metal working community is eagerly awaiting its leading meeting place for the industry. EuroBLECH 2022, the 26th international sheet metal working technology exhibition, will take place from 25th – 28th October at the Hannover Exhibition Grounds in Germany. 

Ahead of the show, around 1,300 exhibitors from 39 countries have already secured their stand space at the world’s leading trade exhibition for the sheet metal working industry. Currently, major exhibitor countries are Germany, Italy, Turkey, China, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Spain, Belgium, Poland, Austria, Portugal and the USA. Exhibiting companies have already secured a net exhibition space of 88,600m2.

Fastener companies exhibiting include DIRAK GmbH, Goebel Group, HAEGER Europe B.V, Heinz Soyer Bolzenschweisstechnik GmbH, RIVIT Srl and TRUMPF Werkzeugmaschinen SE + Co KG.

“Many innovations have been developed in the past few years, with a focus on cost and resource efficiency. While digitalisation and Industry 4.0 were topics only large companies were realising at the previous EuroBLECH, these key drivers have now reached the factories of small and medium-sized companies too. Exhibitors at this year’s event will present everything they have on offer to innovate and digitalise the manufacturing process, along the entire sheet metal working technology chain,” says Evelyn Warwick, event director of EuroBLECH, on behalf of the organiser Mack-Brooks Exhibitions Ltd.

“All these developments are reflected in this year’s motto for EuroBLECH – ‘Your gateway to a smarter future’. The event will offer everyone in the community the opportunity to come together and see what the future of sheet metal working looks like. EuroBLECH offers its visitors the possibility to find solutions for the recent challenges in the industry and connects them with businesses from all over the world to help them integrate the latest machinery and software into their manufacturing process.”

EuroBLECH is a ‘must attend’ event for design engineers, production managers, quality managers, buyers, manufacturers, technical directors and experts from associations and R&D in order to discover the latest trends and machinery in sheet metal working. Visitors to this year’s show can expect the complete spectrum of intelligent solutions and innovative machinery for modern production in sheet metal working, which are presented in the form of numerous live demonstrations at the exhibition stands.

“With international travel restrictions to enter Germany from abroad fully lifted, we can’t wait to welcome back our international audience to the world’s leading sheet metal working technology exhibition. Our exhibitors are already busy preparing their participation for the long awaited return of the show in October,”  concludes Evelyn.
