DeburringEXPO, the only trade fair to deal exclusively with the removal of burrs and the production of precision surface finishes, will take place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre, Karlsruhe, Germany, from October 8–10, 2019.
Offering a unique information, communication and procurement platform for deburring, rounding and precision surface finishing, DeburringEXPO is expected to provide a complete overview of current and new solutions and development trends. With over 170 exhibitors, the DeburringEXPO has reportedly seen a 15% increase in exhibitors compared to 2017’s event.
In addition to the trade fair, a supplementary programme of ‘Theme Parks’ covering ‘AM Parts Finishing’, ‘Cleaning After Deburring’ and ‘Sheet Metal Deburring Process Sequence’, as well as a bilingual expert forum, will offer specialised knowledge to attendees. The AM Parts Finishing Theme Park will look at the increasing requirements for the surface quality of additively manufactured parts, and at required post-processing steps such as cleaning, deburring and coating as a significant cost factor for industrial AM.
In the Cleaning After Deburring Theme Park, experts will present solutions and the necessary knowledge for cleaning oil, grease, emulsions, chips, grinding dust or lapping paste left on components following production. Solutions will look at how to layout and optimise cleaning process economically and in accordance with requirements.
The trade fair will also include a three-day bilingual expert forum which will reportedly feature simultaneously interpreted presentations in German and English and provide visitors with comprehensive knowledge from the fields of deburring and rounding, as well as precision surface finishing, including topics related to the Theme Park subject areas. Practical examples and benchmark solutions for optimised processes will also be showcased.
Hartmut Herdin, CEO of fairXperts GmbH & Co. KG and organiser of the DeburringEXPO, stated, “This concentration of technologies, services and providers in a focussed framework enables visitors to have a kind of overview which would not be possible at any other fair.”
