GrindTec 2018: Leading trade fair for grinding technology aims for further qualitative growth in its offer

Augsburg – trade fair visitors to the GrindTec 2018 should bring one thing with them in particular: time and more time than previously, for the offer, strength of innovation and quality of information at the branch’s leading trade fair will again be significantly increased in 2018.

More than 500 exhibitors from 24 countries have already registered their participation at the trade fair for 2018 - a whole number of them with greatly increased stand areas. The project management is currently involved in concrete planning discussions with a further 100 exhibitors, so that the AFAG trade fair management expects a new exhibitor record in the coming year. This also applies to the international participation and exhibitor area. 2,000 m2 more are available in comparison to the previous event.

The available exhibitor areas are already in short supply, and for this reason the GrindTec project management recommends interested companies to register as soon as possible. The participation documents are available as a download on the GrindTec homepage: www.grindtec.de 

The Konradin media group “Grind technology 4.0” theme park enters its second round.

The premiere of the Industry 4.0 presentation at the GrindTec 2018, a joint project of AFAG, FDPW and the Konradin media group, was extremely successful. Well-known technology leaders will be demonstrating their digitalization solutions for both workshop and production in 2018 also, and will report on cost-benefit relationships, interfaces, implementation prerequisites etc. Various solution strategies will be linked up here for best possible results, which can lead to new ways of thought and new approaches to problems. In this theme park the visitor will find everything in concentrated form that can increase his competitive edge and optimize his processes.

New: From 2018 the grinding technology competence centre is in the conference centre of the Augsburg exhibition centre

The grinding technology competence centre with its numerous research facilities, training and further training institutes, the specialized media, the GrindTec FORUM and the FDPW info centre will be moved from hall 5 to the conference centre of the Augsburg exhibition centre. The association represents state of the art research and development in this form – the ideal complement to the comprehensive offer of the GrindTec 2018.
