Trade Fair Italy sets sails for 33rd edition of Bi-Mu
Italy — From 12 to 15 October 2022, Fieramilano Rho will host the 33rd edition of Bi-Mu, the major Italian exhibition for the industry of metal cutting, metal forming and additive machine tools, robotics, digital manufacturing and automation systems, enabling technologies and subcontracting.
Promoted by Ucimu — the Italian machine tools, robots and automation systems manufacturers' association — and organised by Efim-Ente Fiere Italiane Macchine, the 33rd Bi-Mu will take place from 12 to 15 October 2022. Willingness to invest in new production technologies, need for a renewal of industrial plants, which increasingly require state-of-the-art systems and machines: these are the reasons that according to the organisers will make the trade fair attractive for visitors from all major end-use sectors.
Besides machines and systems, making up the core of the exhibition, Bi-Mu will feature a special focus on five technological topics represented in five exhibition areas:
- Robot Heart, sponsored by Siri (Italian Robotics and Automation Association) and dedicated to the world of robotics;
- Bi-Mu Digital, focused on the world of ICT and connectivity technologies;
- Bi-Mu Additive, sponsored by Aita and dedicated to additive technologies;
- Metrology & Testing centred on systems and machines for testing, measuring and quality control and finally,
- Bi-Mu Logistics, focused on the logistics for the mechanical industry.
In addition to the exhibited product offering, there will be Bi-Mupiù, an initiative of the biennial machine tool exhibition, which will offer in-depth cultural and thematic meetings arranged by the organisers and by the exhibitors. Besides the presentations of the novelties on show, there will be meetings centred on the big issues of interest for the operators of the sector. Among the hot topics, special attention will be devoted to digitalisation and sustainability, in response to the new guidelines dictated by Transition 4.0 and by the approach based on ESG criteria, which are increasingly important for those who operate in the industrial world.
A novelty of this edition is also the full concurrence of Bi-Mu, held in the halls 9-11 and 13-15, with Xylexpo, the biennial international trade show of woodworking technologies and components for the furniture industry, taking place in the opposite halls (22-24; 14-18), thus creating a single exhibition complex with a complete and mutual possibility of entry for both events.
