The new industry hub for grinding technology holds a great deal of potential thanks to its international orientation and its location in Stuttgart, which is central and easily accessible from all over the world. The organisers are part of a worldwide network, which includes Messe Stuttgart (numerous foreign agencies), the VDW (experience in organising EMO Hannover and METAV as well as contacts in the associations of all major manufacturing nations), and Swissmem (also with significant experience in organising joint stands at metalworking trade fairs all over the world).
The main areas of the GrindingHub will be Technology/Processes, Productivity, Automation and Digitalisation in Grinding Technology. There are also plans to present special solutions in show areas. The event concept includes a digital dimension and a supplementary web conference in the odd-numbered years.
All the partners are convinced that the GrindingHub will be uniquely equipped as a trade fair to meet the future challenges in the industry. 23 market leaders in the grinding technology industry have committed themselves to taking part in the first edition of the new event. “We are delighted by this commitment and feel sure we’ll be able to offer a highly attractive event for the grinding industry from 2022 onwards,” added Wilfried Schäfer, Executive Director of the VDW.
