Event Update for GrindTec

GrindTec 2025 will take place as a face-to-face trade show between 11.03.2025 and 14.03.2025. The hosting location for the event will be the Leipziger Messe in Germany.

Why Your Visit Is Worth It?

It all boils down to numbers, and GrindTec more than just delivers. The entire world of grinding technology gathers under one roof and that means a reliable source of trade visitors, who are interested in making purchases. The trade fair elevates your brand and boosts visibility in a big way. The event remains the most important procurement platform in Europe. Any costs that come from exhibiting are instantly repaid. GrindTec took a major hit due to the pandemic, but even so, attendance numbers were more than satisfactory: 

  • 300+ international exhibitors from 30 countries;
  • 7000+ international trade visitors from 44 countries;
  • 35,000 square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

GrindTec is a highly specialist trade expo that has slowly been growing with every single edition. The inaugural fair was held for the first time in 1998 in Messe Augsburg and was a modest affair. The turnout for the 2006 edition barely clocked 290 exhibitors and 9000 trade visitors – under half of what the event currently draws in. That’s a healthy enough growth rate to suggest a lot more business awaits exhibitors here. 

The biennial event represents the full value chain in technology. Product categories include lapping machines, lubricants, measuring devices, filters, fixtures, grinding machines, abrasives, coolants, cutting tools, deburring machines, honing machines, polishing machines, grinding software, precision tools and tool grinding machines. GrindTec debuts new technologies, tools, and equipment to a crowd of enthusiastic buyers. As a marketplace, the trade fair facilitates new business and secures the flow of supply. 

GrindTec rides the wave of innovation and smart technologies are growing their influence. Thanks to automation and the popularity of AI solutions, there’s a substantial area at GrindTec that covers market-ready applications such as controlling production technology via smartphone or tablet.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

GrindTec has a strong pull of professionals in heavy industry and manufacturing. The main areas that visitors come from include machinery, tool and mold making, who come in order to learn about the newest technological advancements. There are also senior management in the audience looking into purchases and concepts like Industry 4.0 and electromobility. 

In terms of nationalities, there is a great variety of countries that partake in the expo. Europe makes a very strong presence with Germany, France, Austria, Great Britain, Estonia, Spain, Finland, Sweden, and Luxembourg, to name a few. Outside Europe, there’s China, the USA, Taiwan, Japan, Korea, and Brazil.

Additional Value of Attending 

Organisers are constantly looking at ways to highlight innovative processes and better promote the work done by established companies. The latest result is the special area GrindTec FACTORY, which consists of seven manufacturers that map the process chain in the field of tool grinding. The role of the segment is to give visitors an overview of new technologies that showcase the digital and mechanical interfaces with each other. 

In relation to digitalisation in the workplace, professionals are required to master new skills to get the most out of precision tool mechanics. Now Schneeberger GmbH and the FDPW Academy are partnering together for the GrindTec CHALLENGE competition to test the best technicians in the guild, who can win some stellar prizes. Speaking of groundbreaking work, you don’t want to miss the GrindTec CAMPUS. Universities, institutes and other scientific institutions gather together to present the latest state of research and development. It’s here that you can get a better sense of where the industry is headed in the next several years.
