6international trade shows, ONE CITY and countless opportunities Author: Sushen Doshi, correspondent India for MDA Technologies NEWS AND MARKETS Sushen Doshi Having MDA North America and Industrial Automation North America along with four other industrial trade shows at one place, like in Chicago, provides greater access and a broader platform to professionals working in multiple industry sectors. Power Transmission at Hannover Messe 2017: “The Power Transmission Distributors Association (PTDA) has been a supporter of a pavilion at Hannover Messe for nearly three decades. Many of our members started exhibiting within the PTDA Pavilion as they began expanding their business to a much more global footprint. Both U.S. based and European based companies found the Hannover Messe to be the perfect venue to display their products and meet with those who could ensure exposure to markets in Europe. As a result of the success of the PTDA Pavilion at Hannover Messe and through the efforts of members who were based in Europe, the European (now EMEA) Power Transmission Distributors Association (EPTDA) was formed. Now, nearly twenty years later and in cooperation with our European affiliate, our pavilion is a critical marketing tools for those who wish to meet with customers in the European market.” Ann Arnott, Executive Vice President/CEO at PTDA After the success of Hannover Fair in April 2016, the world of industries is now gearing up for the next big event in Chicago, USA; the Motion, Drive & Automation (MDA) North America, Industrial Automation (IA) North America and the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). These international trade fairs combined together create the most comprehensive manufacturing technology event in the western hemisphere, attracting professionals from manufacturing industry all over the world to gain valuable ideas and insights from various industry experts. Featuring more than 2,000 exhibiting companies and bringing in more than 100,000 visitors from over a 100 countries, this is one of the largest trade shows in North America. The event is held every two years in September at McCormick Place, Chicago, USA. This year it will be held from the 12 th until the 17 th of September. During your visit to Chicago, you can see a complete range of manufacturing technology solutions. Persons employed in the manufacturing sector should surely visit to see more than 15,000 machine tools, machine components, control systems and software along with other systems and processes that improve the efficiency of your manufacturing processes. Co-located shows: multiplying your opportunities Complementing the metalworking industry at IMTS are five additional co-located trade shows; making this truly the manufacturing sector’s most comprehensive trade event in North America. Colocated trade events provide a greater access to industry professionals working in parallel fields. It opens the door to more targeted and significant networking, for exhibitors as well as for visitors. Riding on the success of IA North America 2012, Deutsche Messe decided to introduce MDA North America along with IA North America in 2014. Visitors’ response in the 2012 and 2014 events has been extremely overwhelming and so positive that in 2016, Deutsche Messe is introducing more industry specific co-located shows like, n Industrial Automation North America n Motion, Drive & Automation North America n Surface Technology North America n ComVac North America n Industrial Supply North America MDA Technologies 3/2016

MDA North America 2016 Motion, Drive & Automation North America 2016 offers the latest technologies and solutions in power transmission, motion control and fluid technology. Since its debut in 2014, this event brings the together a diverse and comprehensive group of motion, drive and automation companies. It offers a unique display of technologies and solutions to meet even the most precise manufacturing needs. As companies respond to new market realities, the customer demand for proficient and stable products is higher than ever. Manufacturers know its critical to invest in exploring new solutions and discovering innovations. MDA North America provides the ideal platform for manufacturing industry professionals from around the world to consult with colleagues and experts about the future of industrial manufacturing technology. Visitors represent a range of manufacturing companies, from SMEs to large enterprises. Professionals from almost every aspect of manufacturing attend the events, including corporate managers, sales and marketing personnel, purchasing and manufacturing/production managers, designers and engineers. The product category at MDA North America includes: Drives and mechanical transmission systems likes linear motion systems, Gears, Electric motors and frequency inverters, chain transmissions, belt transmissions, couplings and brakes, fasteners, springs and bearings. It also includes wide range of products and systems for example oil and water hydraulics, pneumatics, engineering software services and solutions for support and maintenance services. Visitors including decision makers from all sorts of manufacturing industries attend MDA North America to explore and research new and emerging technology, access business networks and opportunities, learn about innovations and trends, discover new machinery and equipment to increase productivity and efficiency. assembly and handling systems, new technologies in electric power transmission and motion control systems, production logistics and material handling systems. This show also has on display products for process control and automation, measurement and monitoring systems and intelligent energy solutions for integrating the entire energy chain. Thinking of smart and intelligent automation technologies, one obviously has to rope in the latest industrial software and IT solutions. IA North America presents software and IT solutions for every stage of industrial process chain – from Wireless M2M, smart factory KL, cyber physical systems and control systems, IPCs, sensor technology and image processing software, connection and interface technology and most importantly concepts and applications for “internet of things” and Industry 4.0. The bottom line of what we saw in Hannover and what we shall see in Chicago is that: “the factory is going digital; the IT, the internet and the manufacturing industry are converging”. What was earlier a vision is now shaping into a reality.” Photographs: Teaser fotolia, Larry Turner Hanover Fairs , 01-02, isolated image Nicole Steinicke Industrial Automation North America 2016 For quite some time now, Germany along with other leading industrialized nations in the world is talking about “factory of the future”, “intelligent factory” or “Industry 4.0”. In the coming years, there is going to be a drastic change in the way a factory operates, with increasing transformations in the operating flows and digitalization in the entire value chain. The statistics for investments made by companies, small and large in automation suggests a fundamental reshaping of the production landscape that could eventually have implications for most aspects of manufacturing activity. Digital integration is becoming a key aspect of modern manufacturing, and this trend is set to continue at a rapid pace. Aiming to strike a chord on these lines among exhibitors and attendees from industries, businesses and governments, IA North America gives high emphasis on the digitalization of manufacturing systems and processes. In Chicago, visitors from the manufacturing industries can understand the concepts of “smart factory” and gradually transform their existing production facility into “intelligent factories”, in which data is seamlessly exchanged between machines and products to ensure optimal results and peak efficiency. IA North America showcases the best in process, factory and building automation with products and solutions for production automation, process and energy automation, industrial software, IT and precision manufacturing. The product category at IA North America consists of robotics and systems integration, automated Motion, Drive & Automation North America returns as a co-located event with IMTS 2016 and presents the latest technologies and solutions in power transmission, motion control and fluid technology
