or: SCHUNK on the leading international trade show for the machine tool industry - EMO 2013
Every two years the world's largest exhibition in metalworking, respectively the leading international trade show for the machine tool industry - the EMO Hannover 2013 - takes place.
So this trade show is right at the center of attention for the company I work for: SCHUNK.
And of course for the majority of our customers it's one of the most important events in the year.
Beside all the great technology I was able to explore there...
...it's always a great opportunity to meet colleagues and customers from all over the world!

My dear colleague Marcin from Poland...
...and many more I can't make mention of individually here in this post.
Something everybody should have at home: our Powerball Leight Weight Arm LWA 4P with servo-electrical gripper for stationary and mobile applications in the field of service robotics and industrial handling. In other words: programmed, installed and used correctly this modular 6-axis robot may clean up your home one day... ;-)
By the way: here's Jens Lehmann, former world-class goalkeeper and now our SCHUNK brand ambassador.
Over the period of the trade show week we gave 6000 footballs as a present for our esteemed customers.
Finally I perpetuated me and my hand next to our anthropomorphic (human-like) five-finger hand in this photo.
I hope you liked my short, but thoroughly blue tour of our SCHUNK booth on the EMO 2013...
