The Areas of METAV 2016
The substantive core of METAV is the value creation chains involved in production technology, from planning work using CAD/CAM all the way through to automation, with the focus on machine tools and production systems, high-precision tools, automated material flows, computer technology, industrial electronics and accessories. Starting 2016 this will be expanded by four so-called areas: Quality Area, Moulding Area, Additive Area and Medical Area.
Each area will be designated as such, having its own nomenclature. Besides individual exhibitors, there will also be shared stands in these areas. Finally, each area will be complemented by a forum with specialised presentations.
Numerous synergies are emerging between the METAV’s core remit and the themes of the four areas. Traditional machine tool manufacturers are already developing machines for additive manufacturing. New vendors have arrived on the scene. Additive processes are also being used in the field of medical technology. Medical technology, plus tool and mould construction, are in themselves attractive customer groupings for the METAV’s core exhibitor base. After all, quality assurance is closely intermeshed with all fields of production technology.
