Facing the new challenges of the turning sector

Tornitura Show, the first Italian trade fair dedicated to the world of turning, returns to the halls of the Bergamo exhibition centre from 16 to 18 February 2023.

Roncucci&Partners will be there as partner of the event in the field of internationalisation and will arrange round tables with experts, workshops and B2B meetings to better understand the future of the turning and machining market, which requires an optimisation of the production processes of the companies and an improvement of the supply chain to be competitive at international level.

These three days of the Tornitura Show will be entirely dedicated to new developments and technological innovations related to the world of turning and metal machining. Among the topics that will be debated, particular attention will be given to the impact that nearshoring is having on the supply chain.

When we talk about nearshoring we refer to a company moving some of its business processes to markets close to its internal market. Given the unsteady situation we are experiencing, nearshoring will become increasingly important and many more realities will be including it in future business strategies.

In this nearshoring scenario, companies need to rethink thus their supply chain, which means that they have to strengthen trade relations with neighbouring countries and identify suppliers of excellence, in which our European territory abounds. The classic supply chain is therefore being revised and transformed into a circular industry system, in which the paradigm changes radically. Today, it is necessary to plan, organize and set a strategy to become part of an economic system that incorporates suppliers and customers. There is also an urgent need for standardization of production processes and digitization of the supply chain: only by adopting these strategies can companies keep up with the times. Moreover, supply chains are becoming increasingly connected, intelligent and aware, and sharing information such as capacity and time would allow companies to have the strategic data to optimize and better manage all logistics flows.

In the end, complete supply chain visibility and data sharing would be the key to creating a more sustainable and innovative model.

These issues are fundamental for an area that has always been able to present itself on the international scene as a traditionally dynamic reality from an economic point of view, becoming one of the most industrialized areas in Europe. We are talking about the new Italian Industrial Triangle, Lombardy-Veneto-Emilia, which is one of the four motors of Europe together with Baden-Württemberg in Germany, Catalonia in Spain, and the south-east of France. Lombardy is the first region in Italy in terms of economic importance and contributes more than one fifth of the national added value; Veneto plays a leading role in the Italian economy, representing the third region in terms of GDP produced, thanks to a successful development model and a production mix with a strong presence of SMEs; Emilia is an area with a dynamic, diversified, flexible industrial fabric, characterized by a high degree of specialization and integration of production chains.

The SMEs that will be exhibiting at the Tornitura Show are rooted precisely in this territory and therefore represent the industry of excellence. But even the elite of the Italian turning industry is called upon to optimize production processes and cost structures and, above all, to drive innovation to find the best answers for customers and partners in a scenario of rapid technological change.

Tornitura Show represents an opportunity for companies, and Roncucci&Partners will actively support these realities by enabling them to discuss these issues but also to discover solutions, plan activities and make commercial agreements and partnerships.
