Industry Relevance

GrindTec Augsburg 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 Augsburg 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.

The main areas that visitors come from include machinery, tool and mold making, who come in order to learn about the newest technological advancements.

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.

Feedback has been mostly positive and organisers are already hard at work to perfect the fair concept with a lot more focus on theme worlds to create added value. It will improve a lot on its current successes. The new additions to the fair’s format like GrindTec FACTORY, the GrindTec INNOVATION Award and the GrindTec CHALLENGE have all been met with rave reviews, so you can expect them to return and take centre stage.
