The 2019 edition of Lamiera, the international exhibition for sheet metal forming, cutting and processing machines, automation and technologies related to the metalworking industry, was attended by 26,197 visitors, registering an 11 percent growth compared to the 2017 edition, and hosted 518 exhibitors, up by six percent compared to the previous event.
Covering a total exhibition area of over 50,000sqm—25 percent more than the 2017 event—Lamiera 2019, which took place at Fiera Milano Rho from May 15–18, presented a wide overview of automation systems, robotics, welding and technologies linked with the digital world, organised in the New Innovation Areas (Robot Planet, FabbricaFutura and Saldatech), which were added to the usual Innovation Areas, Fastener Industry, Ecocoatech and Blech Italy Service.
Amongst the highlights of this year’s event was the LAMIALAMIERA, developed with the support of the Lombardy Region. Set up in Hall 18, LAMIALAMIERA hosted a comprehensive programme of 40 exhibitor meetings spread throughout the four-day event. Moreover, LAMIERA honoured Leonardo da Vinci, 500 years after his demise, with the special show “Italians like us, excellence becomes identity” set up in the exhibition area, and awarded the medal of the Presidency of the Italian Republic. This special exhibition featured a presentation of some drawing reproductions of metal forming machine tools and automation systems developed by da Vinci, highlighting the close parallelism between his projects and the modern technologies being exhibited in the halls.
“We are very satisfied with the outcome of this edition of LAMIERA that closed with increased figures with regard to square metre of exhibit area, exhibiting companies and visiting operators,” said Massimo Carboniero, president of Ucimu-Sistemi Per Produrre, the event organiser.
“Milan is confirmed as the most suitable location, the only one in Italy capable of hosting such an important event, which we hope will keep growing and improving. For this reason, based on the achieved results, we are already working on the definition of the next edition, which will be held at Fiera Milano Rho from March 17–20, 2021,” Alfredo Mariotti, general manager of Ucimu-Sistemi Per Produrre, said.
