Dear Sir or Madam,

Special times sometimes require special measures. And the time we are currently experiencing is a very special one. For this reason there will also be very special advertising measures for GrindTec this year.

For you as an exhibitor, this means that you can invite as many customers as you like, without incurring any costs. Take advantage of this opportunity! You can obtain the e-ticket codes in the Online Service Centre at

As a visitor you can contact your GrindTec exhibitor of confidence to obtain a free ticket for GrindTec 2020. You can activate these in the ticketshop. We look forward to your visit!

Our exhibitors are not the only ones who are inviting their customers to GrindTec: New visitor groups from all over Germany are being invited to GrindTec 2020 via the FDPW, as well as via the Chambers of Industry and Commerce and the Chambers of Trade. Even trade fair colleagues, who will not be able to hold an event this year, will recommend their customers to visit GrindTec.

"We are there - right now!" – Under this motto you will find from today onwards in our regular GrindTec Updates statements from leading manufacturers and associations on their participation.

We wish you good preparation for the trade fair and will be pleased to answer any questions you
may have in personal discussions!

Kind regards,
Your GrindTec Project Team

"We are there – right now!"

Here, you will find statements from leading manufacturers and associations

“We define our core of what we do with precision and passion. The precision of our machines, the passion with which we develop, manufacture and continually improve them, and the enthusiasm for optimizing the tried and tested - to make our customers more successful. Even though we have been working more and more in recent months on solutions with which we support our customers and provide them with service when it is not possible to be on site quickly: Personal contacts are and remain the basis of a good partnership. That is why we are looking forward to GrindTec, in order to meet our customers and present our latest technologies to them".

Dr. Stefan Brand, CEO VOLLMER WERKE Maschinenfabrik GmbH
„It is good and important for our sector that GrindTec 2020 will take place despite the corona pandemic. And as Vollmer, we have set ourselves a lot of goals: we are presenting ourselves in Augsburg for the first time as a fullliner in the field of erosion, grinding and now also laser machining.

Despite the current situation, we are firmly convinced that people have a great need for personal exchange and communication. And especially in the B2B environment and for high-tech products, personal dialogue plays a very important role. In 2020, GrindTec will finally offer an exchange platform for the entire sector again. We are hoping for many guests, although we are aware that some of our international customers will unfortunately not be able to attend due to various restrictions. Certainly some things will be different now. But the fact that GrindTec is taking place is also an important signal and gives the necessary positive impulses for the economy".

Uwe Schmidt, President FDPW German Association of Precision Tool Grinders
"We need trade fairs for a new start! For several months, we met primarily "virtually" and used video and telephone conferences, remote diagnosis and online training to stay in touch with manufacturers, suppliers and customers. This worked well for "emergency operations", but now, we want personal contact, direct exchange and discussion more than ever. This is important for getting a feel for our market, for new technologies and current developments. GrindTec will give the starting signal! It finally brings us together again and sets the course for the future. That is what our sector needs now."
