International trade fair for screw-cutting machine tools

The international bar turning machine tool trade show brings together the most important national and international players in the bar turning, machining and parts production industries that cater to the automotive, aerospace, railway, connector, watch and medical industries as well as all chip removal activities.

A concentration of competitiveness and innovation

Created in 1954, it reflects the dynamic nature and high performance of the Rhône-Alpes region, France’s leading region for the machining industry, in particular the “Technical Valley” in the Arve Valley between Chamonix and Geneva. This houses over 800 small and medium-sized industrial companies in mechanical and bar turning subcontracting.

An excellent place to do business and share with peers

The SIMODEC is organised every two years and is well-known for the opportunities it creates: meeting and sharing with peers, doing business, discovering innovations and research in the industry.
