Blechexpo/Schweisstec 2023 Gearing Up as Industry Highlight

Preparations have begun: the 16th Blechexpo international trade fair for sheet metal working, together with the 9th Schweisstec international trade fair for joining technology, will take place in Stuttgart from the 7th through the 10th of November, 2023. Once again, international expert visitors will experience highly efficient, cutting-edge technologies for the fabrication of parts made from sheet metal, profiles and pipe.

 

Industry players from the sheet metal working and joining technology sectors will meet at the time-tested Blechexpo/Schweisstec trade fair duo in Stuttgart from the 7th through the 10th of November, 2023. Efficient process technologies for modern laser technology, fully automated robotic sheet metal processing machines, precision tools and systems for punching, bending, braking and forming, as well as innovative micro-waterjet cutting technologies are exhibited here traditionally. “Remarkable booking levels, already more than 1½ years before the trade fair opens, substantiate the degree to which exhibitors rely upon the on-site trade fair,” says Georg Knauer, Blechexpo/Schweisstec project manager. “Last year’s event in October was highly successful for everyone and the atmosphere was outstanding. This will remain unchanged in 2023.”

 

Trade Fair Highlight for Suppliers and Machinery Manufacturers

Expert visitors and exhibitors celebrated Blechexpo/Schweisstec 2021 as a festival of cutting-edge technologies and enjoyed the personal exchange of expertise concerning stand-alone and system solutions for sheet metal processing. “The clear-cut need for a live trade fair, for which there’s no substitute, is plainly illustrated by early bookings and the fact that many exhibitors are requesting significant booth size increases,” explains Georg Knauer. Many companies regard Blechexpo/Schweisstec as an extremely important leading trade fair which is widely recognised for the high-quality exchange of ideas amongst experts at the exhibits, at the supplementary events and at the expert forums. Expert visitors and exhibitors confirm the great significance of Blechexpo/Schweisstec as an industry meeting place for global players in the metalworking industry. Exhibitors meet up with precisely the right audience here, ideas and future strategies are exchanged and lasting business contacts are established and cultivated.

 

Thematically Focused and Practice-Oriented

Once every two years, Blechexpo/Schweisstec presents numerous issues covering all aspects of thermal and mechanical sheet metal processing, along with system peripherals including controllers and software, as well as solutions for handling and quality assurance. New and hybrid materials, new joining technologies for lightweight design and the most up-to-date applications and methods involving grinding technologies are also presented at Blechexpo/Schweisstec. With its top technologies, it’s an impressive representation of the high levels of performance achieved by this industry sector. Companies have added increasing levels of automation and end-to-end digitalisation to their investment agendas, as well as sustainability and efficiency where processes, energy consumption, the use of resources and overall costs are concerned. The trade fair will deal with these issues on different levels, and will present solutions as well.

Entire process sequences for sheet metal and metal working will be showcased in nine large exhibition halls – clearly structured with a thematic approach. Joining technology alone fills an entire exhibition hall. Blechexpo/Schweisstec has a proven track record as an event with working character – exhibitors and expert visitors benefit traditionally from the strictly practice-oriented concept and the synergy effects provided by the double-header trade fair. For the next event as well, a world-class supplementary programme is being prepared with expert presentations held at the Blechexpo Forum and the conferring of the Blechexpo Award. Be sure to save the dates now: 7 to 10 November 2023 in Stuttgart.
