Mahr at the EMO 2019 in Hanover
Approximately 117,000 visitors were at the trade show

EMO 2019 in Hanover ended on September 21 after six trade show days. With around 117,000 international production experts from 150 countries at the fair, EMO 2019 continues in the footsteps of the boom year 2017.


Trend topic: smart technologies

The EMO’s motto alone sets the focus of the trade fair: Smart Technologies Driving Tomorrow's Production. Mahr is also positioning itself with modern and smart product solutions: the digital wireless measuring devices, for example, have no annoying cable and thus maximize user friendliness during measurement. The new Precimar ICM 100 IP for automated dial gage testing also saves the user the need to manually read the pointer position for measuring instruments to be tested – and thus up to 60% time.


Robot-based, fully automated measuring cell at KUKA

Automation specialist KUKA, Mahr's cooperation partner, also presented the jointly developed robot-based measuring solution using the MarShaft Scope 750 plus Robot Ready. The special feature of the measuring machine is that it is automatically loaded by a robot, thus forming a fully automatic, optical shaft measuring system. It is to be used directly next to the production machine and inspect accompanying workpieces such as shafts and turned parts. Measuring machine, robots and production machines communicate via data interfaces such as OPC UA, fieldbus or QS-Stat and thus exchange data in closed-loop mode in order to guarantee the quality of the produced components in real time.


Comparable, easier, faster

The trend is clear: there continues to be a need for smart and automated products that both facilitate and improve work. This was also demonstrated by the many interesting discussions we had with you at this year's EMO. We say thank you for a successful trade show!
