The seventh Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology will open its doors in Pforzheim from the 23rd to the 25th of June, 2020. The exclusive industry meet for stamping all-rounders and sheet metal specialists is already booked out entirely for the sixth time in a row. Once again, more than 150 exhibitors from seven countries will be represented.
The world of stamping technology is once again focusing attention on “Stamping Technology Valley” in and around Pforzheim, where technology leaders and service all-rounders from the field of stamping technology are at home. For years now, the event has been attracting an increasingly international expert audience. In 2018, 151 exhibitors from seven countries and 3407 expert visitors from 31 nations came to the Congress Centre Pforzheim for Stanztec, which takes place once every two years. This year again, exhibition floor space is completely booked out four months before the trade fair opens. “The full spectrum of technologies, processes, products, tools and production equipment in the field of stamping technology will be presented here again in 2020,” announces project manager Georg Knauer from trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. Trends and driving forces which are challenging the stamping technology and toolmaking sectors will also be included: more and more extensive networking of processes, functions integration, automation, increasing product individualisation and smaller lot quantities – all in the face of a continuing shortage of skilled personnel. And thus all relevant issues will be covered – from high-performance tools for the series production of top-quality stampings right on up to options for small production runs and offerings for peripheral production equipment.
Leading Trade Fair for the Stamping Technology Industry
For Klaus Müller, managing director of Leicht + Müller Stanztechnik GmbH+Co.KG in Remchingen, the trade fair is of course on the agenda again this year: “For our company, Stanztec is the absolute leading trade fair in the field of stamping technology. This event is small but superlative. Thanks to its highly focussed and regional orientation, it offers the basis for strong concentrations of expert visitors.” Already in 2018, exhibitors and the advisory board agreed: Stanztec is becoming more and more attractive each year. The quality and internationality of the expert visitors (15% foreign exhibitors in 2018) were expressly emphasised, and the practical benefits were stressed. The overriding themes included concrete feasibility, rapid integration into existing processes and solutions to current problems. Klaus Müller also emphasises Stanztec’s considerable benefits: “Alignment of the trade fair to offerings presented by regional exhibitors and the globally unique concentration of specialised manufacturers of stamping tools and stamping technology products provide visitors with an outstanding platform for targeted marketing of new products – especially in times of enormous economic upheaval.”
Living Innovation in Stamping Technology – Meet the Technology Leaders
Stamping technology specialists are in great demand as suppliers to challenging industries such as the automotive, medical technology and chemicals sectors. And thus the high-end stamping technology showcased at the trade fair appeals to an equally demanding, world-class expert audience. For three days, the trade fair in Pforzheim will offer a platform for maintaining existing customer relations, acquiring new customers and a lively exchange of practical experience in the application of new technologies. Klaus Müller believes that the stamping technology industry can also make a contribution to sustainability, as well as to climate and environmental protection: “Due to the concentrated technical know-how which comes together at the event, the participating exhibitors at Stanztec provide an ideal opportunity for the implementation and realisation of any and all technical reorientations. The companies represented at Stanztec are ready, and above all predestined, for innovation and the pending transformation of future technologies. Stamping technology is accustomed to continuous change. We live innovation!”
