Intelligent ‘lights-out’ factory solutions were the focus of SafanDarley’s stand at this October’s EuroBLECH sheet-metal exhibition in Hanover, Germany. The bending and shearing specialist, inventor of the servo-electronic E-brake bending system, has heralded an ‘E-volution’ in sheet-metal processing by moving increasingly towards the automatically and digitally controlled factory.
A wealth of new product, technology and software launches characterised the EuroBLECH exhibition in Hanover, Germany, from 25-28 October 2022. The event covered the entire sheet-metalworking technology chain, presenting 15 technology sectors across nine halls.
