Lamiera 2022 edition will open from 18 to 21 May at fieramilano Rho, the international exhibition of machine tools for sheet metal deformation and related technologies.
Promoted by Ucimu-Sistemi Per Produrre, an association that brings together the Italian manufacturers of machine tools, robots and automation, the event is organized by Ceu-Centro Esposizioni Ucimu and returns after three years, having been postponed for twelve months due to the pandemic.
This is therefore the first major trade fair event dedicated to the sector since the beginning of the emergency, and also for this reason the event has attracted great interest from exhibitors and visitors.
