Space for sustainable innovationThe curtain rises on Simac Tanning Tech 2018, the exhibition of machinery and technologies for the footwear, leather goods and tanning industries, which returns to the pavilions of Fiera Milano Rho from 20 to 22 February 2018
The exhibitor numbers are higher than last year, and in many cases, are also accompanied by a request for bigger stands to confirm the importance of the event for the entire sector. A “sold out” event that can be explained by the words of the President of Assomac and Simac, Gabriella Marchioni Bocca: “The event is a unique and unmissable opportunity for encounters, able to put the spotlight on a dynamic market,” she said. This dynamism is expressed by companies through the offer of ever-more efficient and eco-friendly technologies: now key factors for remaining competitive on the international scene and that have also regained momentum on the domestic market thanks to government incentives linked to Industry Plan 4.0. On the following pages, we preview the proposals that some of the major companies in the tanning machinery sector will present at the fair.
As always, the fair, which takes place concurrently with Lineapelle, will also be an opportunity to test the pulse of the international market, to understand the orientation of some countries and target sectors and therefore, to assess the future work prospects of the leather industry as a whole.
There was also confirmation of the presence of the collective of chemical producers organised by UNPAC, which announced the presentation of important new developments in fashion components for future fashion and in tanning processes that are increasingly more environmentally friendly.
