Keep up to date with the development of the manufacturing sector which is moving rapidly through these years toward the digititalization process of the circular economy and productive flexibility. 3 independent halls answering to the specific market needs and differents purchasing processes:
The extensive selection of subcontracting
The unique Italian trade fair with an exhibition dedicated to Revamping
Focus on Turning
Meeting of the requirements of small, medium and large enterprises
What is Mecfor
The event, organized as a joint venture between the partners, will combine in an innovative way 3 sections corresponding to as many independent exhibitions perfectly in tune with the market demand for productive flexibility and innovative machinery that meets sustainability criteria. Three sections and two different and synergistic industrial visions: that of manufacturing industry, on the one hand, and of subcontracting on the other.
A district of excellence
Able to offer to the exhibitors a space that has been proven to be highly suitable for the display of machinery and technologies in a region renowned for its technological excellence.
Modern exhibition center
Visitors access – thanks to Parma’s central location in relation to Italy’s industrial regions – to a modern and comfortable exhibition centre hosting a large amount of different companies and ideas.
The upcoming exhibition will be able to take advantage of the strong national and international network of relations that the exhibition centre has built over time due to events such as SPS and CIBUS TEC and the past decades presence of SUBFORNITURA in Parma.
Subfornitura a complete range
An offer which includes all the solutions that can be provided by subcontracting from metals to plastics, from rubber and new materials as well as all industry services. SUBFORNITURA also presents a complete range for operators interested in outsourcing skills and professional services.
For over 40 years the home of subcontracting
With over 40 years of history – since 1977 - ‘Subfornitura’ represents the point of reference for the mechanical sector operators. They have been meeting in Parma in order to choose the most suitable solutions for their manufacturing needs and the best partners for outsource business operations.
The extended factory
Producing or purchasing services. What is the best choice for an SME? There is no a single answer to this question because it depends on the needs of each single company. MECFOR shows the concept of extended factory which half relies on an inner production and half on subcontracting.
Revamping - The first and only one
Up to now there was no exhibition in Italy dedicated to Revamping which represents one of the possible interpretations of circular economy applied to the machinery sector.
Revamping provides exhibitors in the sector with the opportunity of showing the quality of revamped machinery exclusively according to Industry 4.0 criteria offering users a more affordable solution while never compromising on quality.
Revamping will show how the contribution of the latest Industry 4.0 technology can ensure a sustainable approach to manufacturing production in economic, environmental and social terms.
This focus is dedicated to the ultimate machine tool. The exhibition will present a wide selection of these machines from the simplest to the most advanced one.
Italian champions and international players on display
In turning- as well as in the technical subcontracting one - Italy boasts exceptional expertise, an expression of the skills of companies mostly located in the Northern Italian regions of Piemonte, Lombardia, Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino. The production will feature at MECFOR exhibition that also include an extensive showcase of international products and solutions making the trade fair even more attractive.
Automotive, defence, aerospace, food, industrial machinery, mechanical components, oil & gas, energy, agricultural and earthmoving machines, medical, dental, railway vehicles, valves and taps, are only some of the manufacturing areas involved in the turning production process.
