BIMU Milan: what is it about?

BIMU is the International Fair for Machine Tools, which has become a referent for all operators in the manufacturing industry. It is Italy’s most important event on automation, digital manufacturing and auxiliary and enabling technologies.

This year, it will open its doors to connectivity in industry, having a special focus on the internet of things, big data, cyber security, cloud computing, augmented reality and system integrators.

During the fair, the interplay between the world of production systems and digital technologies will be discussed, presenting the main trends of the market.

The 31st Edition of BIMU, promoted by Ente Fiere Italiane Macchine, will bring a renewed repertoire of technologies inherent to the factory of the future (through a path made of exhibitions, thematic and convention areas). Like in the past edition, the Sfortec Industry exhibition will take place simultaneously, a fair dedicated to the subcontracting of technology and services in industry.
