International Engineering Fair

The 60th MSV will be the largest in this decade


The jubilee 60th MSV will showcase cutting-edge technology and the best of the history and present of the Czech and Slovak industry. From 1 to 5 October 2018, six industrial fairs are held at the Brno Exhibition Centre, together with a unique exhibition commemorating the 100th anniversary of Czechoslovakia.

Interest in participation in the 60th International Engineering Fair is the highest in the last decade. All halls are sold out and approximately 1650 companies from more than 30 countries will participate. Exhibitors want to attract visitors by the quality and imaginativeness of their expositions, and thus people can expect an attractive show in each pavilion. Top-class machines will be producing in real time, robots will demonstrate co-operation with human colleagues, viewers will be transported via virtual reality to factories operating on Industry 4.0 principles. At the same time however, we will look back on history, recall the legends of Czech and Slovak industry and celebrate the 100th  anniversary of the formation of a common state.

MSV is the flagship of a set of several industrial trade fairs. This year, another five international fairs will be held together with it; these are held in Brno only in even years. IMT will be a showcase for metalworking and forming machines, FOND-EX will focus on foundry, WELDING on welding technology, PROFINTECH will present surface treatment technologies, and PLASTEX is a trade fair for plastics, rubber and composites.

Along with Czech companies with domestic or foreign suppliers, we will see stands of exhibitors from all over Europe and other continents. The share of foreign participants will reach fifty percent, as in all recent years. Most of them come from Germany, while Slovakia, Italy and Austria will also have a large representation.

Top cutting machines and a new era of robotics

The Brno trade fair will of course not be missed by the leading Czech manufacturers of machine tools and forming machines, who are announcing the launch of several interesting novelties. TAJMAC-ZPS, a producer from Zlín, will occupy nearly 400m2 in Hall P; they will exhibit four machines, including a highly upgraded vertical machining centre MCFV 1260iP. Another unforgettable exhibition by KOVOSVIT MAS will feature the new KL 285 MC compact lathe alongside other machines. The new machine, in accordance with principles of Industry 4.0, reports by itself on its utilization capacity, and is ready for robotization, automation and integration into production lines. The company Šmeral Brno certainly deserves attention among all the manufacturers of forming machines, they will present a breakthrough in their production programme in Hall B: a hydraulic precision cutting machine with a type designation FBM Šmeral 440.

Hall P will also feature ABB, whose exhibition stand titled "The New Era of Robotics" aspires to be one of the most attractive stands at the fair. Visitors can look forward to practical demonstrations of robotic solutions and, among other things, a part of the line for the automotive industry, pipe bending, a demonstration of the Bin-picking technology or the assembly of small parts. Curious visitors will find news and interesting applications in the fields of digitization, simplification and collaboration with the use of new technologies and more intuitive programming of robots. Their main attraction, the one-armed version of the collaborative YuMi robot, is ABB's most agile and compact robotic solution yet. Only a 9.5 kg robot can be mounted on a wall or ceiling and integrated into any production environment.

A very interesting exhibition is being prepared by the Brno University of Technology this year. In Hall Z, they will introduce a project featuring a simply programmable ARCOR robot, a model of a mixed drink factory, two Formula One racing monoposts, and a lithium-ion rechargeable battery designed to conserve electricity from renewable sources.

Czechoslovak pavilion A1 with a ‘100RIES’ exhibition and a robot milling out a statue of President Masaryk

The 60th MSV will again be a Czechoslovak one and it will be best shown in Hall A1 through the ‘100RIES’ [Stories] exhibition, which will tell a hundred stories of Czechoslovak industrial legends of the past century. The exhibits will include a jet loom, a lightweight machine gun model 26, a Prim watch, a Jawa 350 motorcycle or a Zetor Crystal tractor in both the historic and current versions. Same as during the first International Engineering Fair in 1959, a Blaník L 13 glider will be hanging over the visitors’ heads. Some exhibits will not even fit inside the 100RIES exhibition, such as  the famous Silver Arrow engine which will be displayed on the tracks in front of Hall A1. The biggest attractions will also include a replica of the statue of President T. G. Masaryk, which decorated the rotunda of Hall A in 1928 when the exhibition centre was first opened. During the fair, the statue will be milled out by a three-meter robot directly before visitors’ eyes.

Slovakia as the current automotive superpower will recall the history of its automotive industry at the 100RIES exhibition and will bring the historically first serially produced car in Slovakia - the Škoda 743 Garde Coupé from 1982 with the production number 00001. Further icons will include the Favorit bicycle, the Babetta moped or the current wonder, the first world superquad (a combination of a car and a quad bike) named Engler.

Slovakia is also naturally the partner country of this year's MSV. The official Slovak exhibition titled GOOD IDEA SLOVAKIA will occupy an area of 500 m2 in Hall A1, where 40 companies will be exhibiting together. More than 80 Slovak exhibitors, including traditional engineering and industrial brands such as Železiarne Podbrezová, TRENS SK or ZVL SLOVAKIA, will participate in the fair.

Enjoy the fair with its supporting programme, MSV Tour and BRNO FAIR CITY projects

MSV is not just about exhibitors – every year it also becomes the largest five-day conference centre of the Czech Republic and beyond with an industrial focus. The most important events include the traditional Monday Congress of the Confederation of Industry and Transport of the Czech Republic – a key discussion meeting of representatives of the government with the business sector, which will be Czechoslovak for the first time and with the participation of the prime ministers of both countries. In addition, there is the two-day B2B project called Contact-Contract, a conference on cooperation with China, meetings with Japanese companies focused on automation and the Internet of Things, or a traditional 3D printing conference. The complete supporting programme can be found here.

Visitors are also offered a unique opportunity to enjoy the fair and see the most interesting parts of it without worries and planning. After successful last year's premiere, the MSV Tour project is going to take place again: organized tours of selected exhibitors based on several key themes: robotics and automation, safety in industry, maintenance and diagnostics, and energy efficiency reduction.

The Jubilee MSV is again linked with the BRNO FAIR CITY event, which enables all participants of the fair to make use of extra discounts. Just visit the Info Point at the Exhibition Centre, get an identification bracelet, and then enjoy a visit to the city with various benefits ranging from bargain menus in restaurants and events in bars and clubs to a cheaper public transport ticket or a taxi discount.
