Mechanical Engineering Large Tatef metalworking exhibition is coming to Istanbul
Tatef 2012, the 14th International Metalworking and Technologies Exhibition, comes to the Istanbul Expo Centre October 2–7. One of the world’s largest trade exhibitions, Tatef is a biennial showcase for Turkish and international mechanical engineering companies.
Organised by EUF International Trade Fairs, the Turkish office of the ITE Group, with support from industry associations in Turkey and national government agencies for technology and business, Tatef 2012 will command more than 120,000 m2 of the exhibition centre. Within this space, exhibitors will display machine tools, CAD/CAM systems, software, metal-cutting machines, metal-forming machines, sheet-metal and wire-working machines, industrial safety systems, hand power tools, manufacturing and process automation equipment, measuring and testing systems, equipment for welding, cutting, hardening and heating, and mechanical, hydraulic, electrical and electronic accessories for metalworking.
This year’s Tatef offers a special section for mechatronic systems, in recognition of a global industrial trend. Mechatronics is an important manufacturing system technology that enables traditional industries to become more efficient by automating redundant processes and thus increase productivity.
Turkey is the seventh-largest manufacturer of machine tools in Europe. Its machine tool industry exports to nearly 170 countries. According to EUF, Tatef is considered an export door for Turkish manufacturers in the sector.
