In co-operation with the ICE-Italian Trade Agency, Massimo Carboniero, President of Ucimu-Sistemi per Produrre, led a delegation of over 60 companies from Italy that took part at Russia's Metalloobrabotka middle of May.

Massimo Carboniero, President of Ucimu-Sistemi per Produrre, the Italien Machine Tools, Robots and Manufacturers' Association, said the delegation at Metalloobrabotka in Moscow recently represented the whole spectrum of the “Made in Italy" machine tool industry sector. At Russia's leading International Exhibition for Equipment, Instruments and Tools for the Metalworking Industry, Carboniero also met Denis Manturov, Minister of the Russian Economic Development and Trade, on the first day of the fair during his tour around the Italian booths.

The association notes that Russia is a leading market for Italian machine tool manufacturers and the country recorded exports growth again in 2017, after a downturn period. "Made in Italy" sales of the sector to Russia marked an increase of 17%, amounting to €90 million, making Russia the eighth largest export market for Italian goods in the sector; it was tenth in the ranking in 2016.

Carboniero commented: "Thanks to important incentive measures implemented by the Italian Government with regard to Industry 4.0, today the “Made in Italy” offering of the sector is much more competitive for users all over the world. In addition to flexibility, very high technological standards, strong product customisation, we also offer interconnectivity functions, which ensure our customers more efficient, performing and eco-sustainable production and processes.”

During this trip, Carboniero was also speaker at the “International Forum: Digital Engineering Production” organised by the Moscow University Stankin, with which Ucimu maintains a privileged relationship over several years now, which is built around the Italian-Russian Technological Centre project. The forum was hosted at the university and developed together with the Ministry of Economic Development and the ICE-Italian Trade Agency.

According to Ucimu, the Italian-Russian Technological Centre that was inaugurated end of 2012, is equipped with Italian machines and technologies. The centre has already trained hundreds of students from the engineering department and a large number of technicians have also attended professional training and refresher courses there.
