The 19th international exhibition for metalworking technologies, Metav 2016, will be held from 23 to 27 February 2016 in Düsseldorf, Germany. The show promises to be big, as organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association) has recently integrated new permanent features into its show. The new dedicated areas for additive manufacturing, moulding, quality and medical technologies are said to offer exhibitors and visitors new, attractive topics themed around the value creation chain in the capital goods industry.

“All four topics intermesh superlatively with Metav’s agenda that’s so familiar to our customers. We are confident that they will attract many established and new visitor groups,” VDW Executive Director Dr. Wilfried Schäfer said. To render this change visible to everyone, the existing nomenclature has been expanded by more than 300 products in the search term listing. This means that Metav now covers a portfolio of almost 1,100 products. “The expansion is an attractive step for exhibitors and visitors alike, offering substantial synergy effects,” Schäfer said.

The newly established Moulding Area reflects the entire bandwidth of tool and mould-making and already includes 39 exhibitors. “We know from surveys that almost one in five visitors to Metav is interested in tool, mould and model-making,” Schäfer explained. “In the Moulding Area, these prospective customers will find applications and solutions for their own particular special interests, both metal and plastics. Additional information can be obtained by visiting the other areas as well. You won’t find anything like this at any other event.”

This is what motivates Andreas Stute, managing director of Intercam Deutschland, also known under the name of Mastercam: “In the Moulding Area, visitors will obtain all the information they need for efficiently developing and manufacturing their products. That’s why we are showcasing our innovations here.”
