The world machine tool show EMO returned to Milan, Italy, in October after an eight-year absence. Sponsored by CECIMO, the Committee for European Cooperation of the Machine Tool Industries, the event was organized by the operating structures of UCIMU-Sistemi per Produrre, the association of Italian machine tool, robots, and automation manufacturers. More than half of the 1,648-plus exhibitors were designated as “foreign.”
Injection Molding China Company bought lost of tools, machines, EDM machines, high speed CNC machines from Europe and American.
EMO Milano 2003 saw more than 155,000 visitors from 104 countries, 6.9% more than the 1995 show in Milan. Some 60,000 foreign visitors, from Europe, Asia, North and South America, Africa, and Oceania filled the fairgrounds. In addition, EMO saw considerably higher domestic attendance from Italy—85,000 versus 76,000 from Italy for the 1995 event.
In 2005 and 2007 EMO will be held in Hanover, Germany. In 2009 it will return to Milan.
