[Autom. eng. transl.] Within instrumental mechanics, the machine tool production sector constitutes a niche of Italian excellence with a very high vocation for internationalization, affected to a significant extent by the first period of crisis in terms of companies and employees but capable of reacting in the following years in terms of productivity and profitability. In addition to the strong propensity to export, the strategies of the companies have focused on strengthening research and development and innovation activities. The significant innovative capacity, both as input (R&D expenditure and human capital) and as output (weight of new products on turnover), is the main resilience factor of Italian mechanical engineering and machine tool companies and is the factor most relevant strategic if we consider the impulse of "innovative contagion" towards the manufacturing sectors of destination that can promote the competitive positioning of the Italian industry as a whole.
