Markets, supply chains, manufacturing technologies and processes are changing. Entire sectors are realigning themselves. This transformation is making it more and more important for companies to demonstrate presence, and to function as solution providers. Where deburring and the production of precision surface finishes are concerned, there’s no getting round DeburringEXPO. The 4th leading trade fair for deburring technology and precision surface finishing will be held at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 12th through the 14th of October, 2021. The exhibition portfolio covers the processing of components manufactured by means of all technologies, and from all industry sectors. The expert forum, which is in great demand as a source of knowledge, rounds out the exhibition programme with highly practical, simultaneously interpreted presentations (German <> English).

Ten months before DeburringEXPO opens its doors for the second time, occupied net exhibition floor space has already surpassed the results obtained at the premiere event in 2015 by 36%. This significant growth demonstrates that the trade fair for deburring technology and precision surface finishing, taking place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from 10 to 12 October 2017, is already considered the industry meeting place by industry suppliers. The presentations held at the expert forum which accompanies DeburringEXPO will be interpreted simultaneously at the upcoming event (German – English). Trade fair promoters fairXperts GmbH & Co. KG are thus doing justice to growing international requirements for know-how dealing with deburring and the production of precision surface finishes.
Modern design for a modern production environment: the dosing furnace Westomat Plus+ was awarded the prestigious “Good Design Award” of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. In everyday foundry work, the new system not only has a smaller footprint – it also consumes less energy. The manufacturer of industrial furnaces StrikoWestofen (Gummersbach, Germany) designed the Westomat Plus+ to combine functionality with an attractive outer appearance. “We want to help foundries to create production facilities which meet today’s employee and customer demands with regard to working environment, quality and sustainability. The new Westomat Plus+ is one more step in the direction of our ‘Green Foundry’ initiative,” StrikoWestofen manager Rudi Riedel explains.
Now more than ever, selecting the suitable procedure for attaching connection elements to tube ends is essential for economical machining processes. This is because geometries are becoming more and more complex and the pressure of remaining cost efficient is increasing significantly.
Production flexibility, cost-efficiency and sustainability both in regard to products and production processes are focal points during the construction of lightweight bodies for motor vehicles. Innovative laser joining technologies are almost predestined for this task since they can be used to produce highly durable lightweight structures cost-effectively.
