Africa’s biggest machine tools exhibition and a showcase of everything that twists, turns, rotates, cuts, forms, bends or shapes, Machine Tools Africa 2024 is designed to bring to life the very latest global machine tools technology and to highlight the importance of local suppliers and their international manufacturing partners.

Perfect timing for Machine Tools Africa 2024

Recent statistics show a substantial increase in revenue of industrial machinery in 2021/2022. This confirms that despite the challenges South Africa has faced during this period, businesses are investing in machinery and upgrades.

There has been a continuing shift in interest to automation, smart factories, and Industry 5.0 and how it will affect the manufacturing sector in the coming years. The timing for the Machine Tools Africa exhibition in 2024 is perfect.

South Africa has a well-established manufacturing sector that offers various opportunities for investors to diversify their portfolios, and the exhibition will provide a platform for industry stakeholders to work collaboratively to take advantage of the current environment.
