GrindTec 2022: Focus on further internationalization

Cooperation with DeburringEXPO / "Tool Grinder of the Year" competition: finals at GrindTec 2022

Augsburg – The leading forum for grinding technology can look back on an impressive story of success: From a very manageable industry show, which did not even fill an exhibition hall, under the equally careful and forward-looking direction of the organizer AFAG and the technical sponsor FDPW, GrindTec developed into the leading international trade fair for grinding technology today. The network with more than 50,000 contacts to experts in grinding technology, which has grown over the many years and is increasingly being expanded internationally, forms the strong support of the GrindTec.

GrindTec provided the industry with a platform that succeeded for the first time in doing what large metal trade fairs had failed to do: Here, the experts in grinding technology met in a concentrated manner, both on the exhibitor and visitor side. The idea and the concept of this special trade show were coherent and have convinced the industry to this day. Successful exhibitors, enthusiastic visitors - they all appreciate the familiar and collegial atmosphere of this high-quality and yet still down-to-earth trade fair.

Focus on further internationalization

Around 200 registrations have now been received for GrindTec 2022, and no significant changes in the composition of the range of exhibitors can be seen at present. The international composition of the exhibitors is also comparable with previous events: A good third of the registrations currently come from abroad, 14 nations are currently represented. The international reach of GrindTec is to be further accelerated, based on cooperation with partners in China, Japan and India, but also within Europe. Progress is particularly good in Italy - 29 companies have already registered for Grindtec 2022.

Cooperation with DeburringEXPO

GrindTec organizer AFAG is currently working on an expansion of the range of products and services at the world's leading trade fair for grinding technology. Thus, a cooperation with DeburringEXPO in Karlsruhe, fairXperts GmbH & Co. KG will expand the mapping of the process chain at Grindtec.

An obvious possibility is the mutual exchange of theme parks. This means that as early as next October, a presentation on the topic of "Grinding Technology" will be shown at DeburringEXPO (12 - 14.10.21); in return, a theme park on "Deburring Technology" will come into play at GrindTec 2022 in Augsburg in March 2022.

Tool Grinder of the Year finals at GrindTec 2022

In 2020 they were already in the starting blocks, in March 2022 the five finalists of the "Tool Grinder of the Year" competition will finally be able to show how good they are. Together with Schneeberger GmbH and the FDPW Academy, the trade magazine fertigung will be looking for the best of their guild at GrindTec 2022. In addition to high technical competence and great craftsmanship, an eye for what is economically feasible is also required.
