Two main topics were under the spotlight at the most recent edition of Simac Tanning Tech, the international event of machinery and technologies for the footwear, leather goods, and tanning industries:  energy/eco-friendly performance and the 4.0 Industry.

For the former, 300 companies presented machinery and technologies with high efficiency parameters and a significantly reduced environmental impact. The highly topical issue of environmental awareness was also debated with the presentation of the “Supplier of Sustainable Technologies” project and its main tool promoted by Assomac, the “Green Label”, which has already been adopted by 17 sector companies (with another 25 having embarked on the procedures to obtain the label). The second topic of interest was the key role being played by the 4.0 Industry in offering highly innovative technological solutions.

“During the three extremely intense days of the exhibition, thousands of visitors had the opportunity to see high-performing, safe, and eco-friendly technologies first-hand. The work done by our companies does not, however, lie solely in innovating the single machine but also and more importantly in an innovated production process – declared Gabriella Marchioni Bocca, Simac Tanning Tech President, – Thanks to Government incentives and our ability to ride the wave of change, we have coped admirably with the recession that impacted on the Italian and global industry and are today better able to respond to market demands: the exhibition is a striking example of this. Machinery and technologies for footwear, leather goods and tanning continue to play a key role in the production chain, helping to deliver an increasingly sustainable and innovative Made in Italy production.”

The next edition of Simac Tanning Tech will be held from 19 to 21 February 2019.
