Deburring Expo 2021 Hands-on presentation of solutions for deburring technology and precision surface finishing

Editor: Alexander Stark

Germany — Preparations are running at full bore for Deburring Expo as a live event at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from 12 through 14 October, 2021. The booking status also promises a successful 4th Leading Trade Fair for Deburring Technology and Precision Surface Finishing, where exhibitors and visitors will once again be able to exchange ideas at face-to-face meetings.

This year's Deburring Expo will focus on solutions and information which enable companies to effectively and efficiently fulfil stricter as well as changing requirements for deburring and surface finishing quality.

There is no substitute for personal contact and the real presentation of products and solutions at a specialized trade show. Face-to-face discussions with customers and trade visitors create trust when initiating business and make product presentations tangible. Exhibitors at Deburring Expo are therefore already looking forward to holding the leading trade fair for deburring technologies and precision surface finishing as a presence event. With good reason, because around 94 percent of the expert trade show visitors are involved in operational investment decisions. And with a rising ifo Business Climate Index for Germany, which reached 99.2 points in May 2021, the highest value since May 2019, investments are picking up again in industrial sectors such as automotive, mechanical engineering, sensor, medical and pharmaceutical technology, tool and mould making, metalworking and processing, aerospace, and environmental and energy technology.

Changing requirements require adaptive solutions

Attention is being focussed on solutions with which companies can meet stricter, as well as new requirements for deburring and surface finishing quality. “Amongst other factors, this requirement arises from stricter specifications for products and their surface finishing, for example due to downstream processes such as joining, coating, sealing and assembly. Changing production technologies and materials, such as workpieces made of material combinations, also necessitate optimised solutions for deburring, rounding and the production of precision surface finishes, as well as the cleaning of components after these processing steps,” reports Hartmut Herdin, managing director of fairXperts, organisers of Deburring Expo.

Increasing use of additive manufacturing (AM) in series production is also impacting surface finishing processes. The removal of residual powder and supporting structures, as well as the rough and porous surfaces of additively manufactured components, are challenging. Further increases in efficiency by means of process optimisation, automation and digitalisation are presenting companies with additional challenges as well. The exhibitors at the 4th leading trade fair for deburring technology and precision surface finishing will showcase appropriate solutions for these tasks. The broad-based offerings will be rounded out with theme parks for “Automated Deburring with Industrial Robots”, “AM Parts Finishing” and “Cleaning After Deburring”.

Innovative solutions for the inspection of deburred surfaces are also covered by the exhibition programme at Deburring Expo.

The Expert Forum: knowledge transfer at its best

The integrated 3-day expert forum is an established supplement to the exhibition programme at Deburring Expo for the promotion of knowledge transfer. Simultaneously interpreted presentations (German <> English) will provide information concerning solutions to current problems covering all exhibition segments. The trade fair programme is thus enhanced with the quality of a further training event which enables visitors to expand their know-how in the fields of deburring, rounding and the production of precision surface finishes, as well as component cleaning. Beyond this, examples based on actual practice and benchmark solutions provide ideas and stimulation for the optimisation of processes at one’s own company.

Collaboration with Grind Tec

Thanks to the new collaboration between fairXperts and Afag — promoters of Grind Tec — the exhibition portfolio at Deburring Expo 2021 will be extended for the first time to cover the issue of “grinding technology” at a collective booth. This expansion of the spectrum of offerings will make it possible for visitors to gather information more effectively covering the entire process sequence for surface treatment. Deburring Expo will also be represented with a collective booth for “deburring technologies” at the next Grind Tec, which will take place in Augsburg from 15 through 18 of March, 2022.
