EDITORIAL Machine

EDITORIAL Machine construction defies worldwide crises Dear readers, In Yemen, Nigeria, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Ukraine and now also in Turkey – trouble spots around the world are driving headlines in the papers. Fear and violence have preempted a growing share of daily TV and radio news throughout the world. The number of conflicts continues to rise, with no end in sight to mounting casualties. In eastern Ukraine pro-Russian rebels are fighting Ukrainian troops. The Boko Haram terrorist militia rages across Nigeria. Afghanistan and Pakistan are unable to achieve peace in their struggle against the Taliban. After years of carnage in Syria, Iraq and Libya, the IS terror group has now spread death and destruction throughout Europe. – And there is no end in sight. In addition to the massive flood of refugees Europa is currently experiencing, the economy is suffering above all from political unrest. This is forcing companies in all areas of machine construction to adapt continually to new local circumstances, to avoid a precarious financial situation worldwide due to economic fluctuations in one region. And in some cases they have been doing that very well. Let’s take a look a Turkey as well: Although the mid-July putsch attempt and resulting unrest do cast a shadow over the economic success of Turkey, the economic climate within the mechanical engineering sector has remained positive. Adnan Dalgakiran, President of the Turkish Machinery Industry Association makes this point impressively in his article. But why not read the article yourself to learn more? And then there is Great Britain: No war, to be sure, but Brexit has created a highly uncertain political situation with the shock waves reverberating throughout Europe. You can find out for yourself what the effects of Britain exiting the EU will be for machine construction. And finally we take a look at the USA: The largest manufacturing show in the world, IMTS and MDA North America, will be held in Chicago in September. We’ll tell you what to expect and point out some of the most innovative new products. Crises are thankfully nowhere to be seen in our country and trade show special, nor in the many other interesting articles in this issue. Instead they’re full of solid technological accomplishments that will give you the support you need in your daily work.
