Industry Profile

Control has been on the scene for a long time and seen and changed along with the entire field of quality assurance. The first ever edition was held back in 1987 in Messe Stuttgart and it’s been a mainstay ever since. Every year, a new edition challenges the achievements of the last and brings in a comprehensive product portfolio. Booths are dedicated to fiber-optic technology, devices for non-destructive materials testing, CNC machines, flexural testing machines, labeling, QA data processing, sensors, layer thickness measurement and automation to name a few. Given this status, it’s not surprising to see the trade fair serve as a significant procurement platform. In addition, the fair features high-profile events like the Control Vision Talks as part of its support programming.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

The professionals coming to control come from all possible industry sectors – material handling, laboratory technology, optoelectronics and measurement technology to name a few. Part of what makes Control so successful is the inclusion of institutions that take research and development to a whole new level. We’re talking the Fraunhofer Vision Alliance, the Fraunhofer IPA, EMVA – the European Machine Vision Association and the German Society for Quality (DGQ). The fair always has its sight set on the next big thing and the current topic of notice that’s taking over the program is the emergence of the Smart Factory.
