The great exhibition of agricultural mechanics (Bologna 19-23 October) reserves a lot of space for machines and equipment for all types of processing, from plowing to the collection and transport of products. The review takes place at a dynamic time for the market. Italian industries recorded very substantial increases in the first half of the year, and are forecasting a year-end in surplus. EIMA is a great showcase – says the president of Assomao Lorenzo Selvatici – for many highly specialized SMEs.
Among the major agricultural mechanics exhibitions, EIMA International (Bologna, 19/23 October) is the one that offers the widest choice of machinery and equipment. Means for working the soil, for crop treatments, for the collection and transport of products, for irrigation and for breeding – located within the fair within sectors II, IV, V, VI, VII, X and XI – are present in many models, to satisfy every processing requirement. The 44th edition of EIMA – explains FederUnacoma, the federation of manufacturers that organizes the Exposition – takes place at a particularly dynamic moment for the Italian industry in the sector, which records increases in sales both in Italy and abroad. The “Barometer” survey carried out by FederUnacoma shows how, with reference to agricultural machinery, 83% of the companies recorded an increase in turnover compared to the previous year in the first six months of the year, compared to a modest 6% of companies that instead mark a decline in turnover. Among profitable companies, a very high percentage (54%) recorded increases of more than 20%. The positive trend should also be confirmed in the second half of the year, albeit with less accentuated indices: the Barometer indicates that 67% of the construction industries expect an increase in turnover, and 27% a stable trend, data that suggest a balance sheet at the end of 2021 clearly positive. “Our sector is extremely heterogeneous and made up of hundreds of small and medium-sized enterprises, each hyper-specialized in its own field – explains Lorenzo Selvatici, President of Assomao, the Association that represents the manufacturers of agricultural machinery within FederUnacoma operators – and EIMA is the fair that, more than any other in the world, gives the necessary visibility to all these realities by offering them a great business opportunity during the days of the exhibition. On the other hand, it offers the visitor a one-of-a-kind completeness of visit, for those interested in implements for specialized agriculture “. The replacement of machinery and equipment currently in use on farms with new generation vehicles is a necessary process, because the economic sustainability and environmental compatibility of the work has become a fundamental element in agricultural activity. The machines exhibited at EIMA International feature electronic function control systems, monitoring sensors, ISOBUS technologies capable of optimizing the relationship between the tractor and the carried or towed equipment, all technologies capable of making the use of the machines more and more perfected. and environmentally friendly. “The market is in great turmoil – concludes Lorenzo Selvatici – and our companies are increasingly adopting sensors and electronic devices to make the vehicles work better, consume less and optimize all aspects relating to the use of equipment, even the simplest ones. in the field. Now all that remains is to finally wait to see us again in presence, and in safety, at the fair in Bologna ”.
