32.BI-MU, from 14 to 17 October 2020, at fieramilano Rho, the largest offering of digital technologies for sustainable production on show
BI-MU is the most important Italian exhibition dedicated to the industry of metal forming and metal cutting machine tools, additive and digital manufacturing, robots and automation, enabling technologies and subcontracting. It is the only trade show in Italy related to the sector that has a real international appeal.
Promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Italian machine tools, robots and automation systems manufacturers’ association, and organised by EFIM-ENTE FIERE ITALIANE MACCHINE, 32.BI-MU will present a renewed technological index of products, covering all solutions regarding the factory of the future and a lot of new entertainment and thematic insight projects, conceived to make the most of the presence of the operators attending the exhibition.
Metal forming and metal cutting machine tools, additive manufacturing, robots, automation, auxiliary and enabling technologies, subcontracting, powertrain and fluid-power systems, mechatronics, surface finishing treatments, tools, components, equipment and accessories, metrology and welding, IoT, Big Data, analytics, Cyber Security, Cloud Computing, Augmented Reality and system integrators, vision systems, software, solutions for industrial material handling and warehouse management: these are only a few of the technologies on show at 32.BI-MU.
After over 60 years of exhibition evolution following the technological transformation of the sector, today BI-MU is more and more a meeting point between production systems and digital world.
After all, data management and interconnection of machines are crucial factors for a sustainable management of production cycles in a factory, which translates to higher profitability, smart use of resources and enhancement of safety systems, according to the approach of circular economy that will be among the hot topics of 32.BI-MU.
Energy streamlining of machines, optimization of production downtime, modular design in the designing phase , predictive maintenance: these are only a few of the technological issues that will make their debut at 32.BI-MU, together with integrated solutions for industrial material handling, warehouse management and storage of goods, thus enriching the event with new contents.
For the edition number 32 of BI-MU, the organisers have worked on several new initiatives that will increase exhibitors’ and visitors’ appeal of BI-MU. Indeed, in this edition, the exhibition will include two new sectors, which are inherently contiguous and complementary to that of machine tools: the logistics sector will occupy BI-MULogistics, a special area developed in cooperation with INTRALOGISTICA ITALIA, and the sector of technical subcontracting and services for the industry will be hosted in the new SUB4TECH, an area promoted by CIS-Comitato Interassociativo Subfornitura, (Interassociative Subcontracting Committee).
