Since 2005, FMB has been the trade show in OWL providing a platform for key players from the fields of mechanical engineering, automation technology and production engineering to network and establish new contacts. The FMB represents the entire spectrum of the supply industry for mechanical and plant engineering, including related industrial services and special engineering. The FMB addresses the relevant developments and innovations for the mechanical engineering sector. Directors, product developers, buyers, design engineers and decision-makers find partners at the event offering solutions to meet their requirements with a view to optimising individual components, machines, production processes or complete solutions. The uniform booth construction concept and the extensive service package available enable exhibitors to participate in the event while keeping preparation and staff costs at a low level.
