From Tuesday 6 to Friday 9 May 2025, fieramilano Rho will host the twenty-third edition of LAMIERA, the international exhibition dedicated to the industry of sheet metal forming and cutting machine tools and innovative technologies related to the sector.

Over the years the trade show has become one of the leading appointments in the international panorama of events focused on the world of sheet metal forming and cutting, a field in which Italy stands out, holding the second position in the world ranking of production and exports and the third in the consumption one.

Promoted by UCIMU-SISTEMI PER PRODURRE, the Italian machine tools, robots and automation systems manufacturers’ association, and organised by CEU-CENTRO ESPOSIZIONI UCIMU, LAMIERA is the only trade fair in Italy exclusively dedicated to the metal forming sector. An event chosen by more and more Italian and foreign companies to present a preview of their projects and innovative solutions.

Machines, plants, equipment for processing sheet metal, tubes, profiles, wires and structural metal fabrication, presses, moulds and dies, moulding, surface treatments and finishing, parts, components, accessories, tooling, fastener materials, technical and industrial subcontracting represent the heart of the exhibition, which will show the best of the new state-of-the-art technologies or ‘The Bright Side of Metal Forming’, as the slogan of this edition states. As a side note, the event will emphasize a special focus on some technological themes related to machine tools.

FABBRICA FUTURA will be dedicated to software and technologies for connectivity, data management and automation and to digital systems and robotics applied to sheet metal processing; SALDATECH will offer an overview of the wide and diversified world of welding, one of the most important sheet-metal joining technologies; FASTENER INDUSTRY will show a proposal of screws, bolts, fastening and clamping systems; WORLD OF HEAT AND SURFACE TREATMENTS will host machines, systems, accessories and consumables focused on pre- and post-production treatments, for ferrous and non-ferrous materials, ensuring a complete view of this segment that is continuously developing; METROLOGY & TESTING will be centred on testing, measuring and quality-control systems and machines, which are essential for production in this field; BLECH ITALY SERVICE will concern technical subcontracting and services for the industry of the sector, the six technological themes of the exhibition.

In addition, starting this year, LAMIERA will propose a Revamping & Retrofitting area focused on machines and plants that have been adequately renewed and equipped with new functionalities to meet the needs of a market that is complementary to that of “new machinery”.

“In the Italian exhibition panorama – said Alfredo Mariotti, general manager of UCIMU – LAMIERA is the only event dedicated exclusively to machines for cutting, processing and forming sheet metal. The high quality on show, and the attention focused, through the innovative exhibition themes, on the new leading technologies in the industry make the fair, year after year, more and more relevant and appealing, both nationally and internationally”.

“A strong offer recognized by users and manufacturers from all over the world is an element of absolute attraction for international operators who find in LAMIERA the best opportunity to observe closely the biggest players in the sector. In fact, data from the last editions of the event, show that the presence at the fair of all Italian manufacturers – large, small and medium, for standard and super-customized technologies – is also a very strong driver for the participation of foreign manufacturers, belonging both to countries with a solid tradition in this sector and to those of more recent affirmation coming also from areas outside the EU, whose presence at LAMIERA grows decisively year after year”.

“The collection of subscriptions started a few days ago and our secretariat has already received numerous requests to participate. Moreover – added Alfredo Mariotti – international and domestic market trends expected to grow for the entire three-year period 2025-2027, and the availability of Transition 5.0 and 4.0 incentives throughout 2025, will certainly favor all operators who decide to exhibit at LAMIERA, which is hosted in the world’s third largest consumer market and first in Europe.”

Adding further value to the exhibition will be the collateral initiatives and projects that will make the visiting experience complete and full of interest. LAMIALAMIERA, the event area of the fair that will present a rich program of meetings – related to relevant topics for the sector – will be re-proposed, as well as the incoming of foreign operators and all the initiatives related to education.
