As the leading trade fair for new technologies in grinding, honing, lapping and polishing, the coming GrindTec will bring the sector together again after a long time. In the direct dialogue between visitors and manufacturers, new perspectives for tool grinding will open up, which can lead the companies out of the crisis. Impulses are provided by highly functional solutions and further developments such as
> hybrid grinding machine concepts that also integrate other manufacturing technologies
> additive manufactured flow-optimized cooling lubricant nozzles
> direct drives in the grinding machine axes to improve dynamic stiffness and accuracy as well as to increase performance
> new 5-axis machine concepts for tool grinding
> laser processing possibilities of diamond tools or diamond-coated tools.
Grinding technology sector relies on the strength of its leading trade fair
Of the approximately 650 exhibitors who had registered for the March date, almost all were able to confirm the new date in November. It has already been possible to fill some of the cancellations with new exhibitors. At present around 640 exhibitors are taking part in the GrindTec in November.
The latest figures of the ifo Institute for Economic Research send positive impulses. During the Corona crisis, the business climate index fell to a historic low of 74.3 points in spring. Current figures of the ifo business climate index and evaluations by Statista are already showing positive trends again: The 9,000 surveyed companies from the manufacturing, service, trade and construction sectors are confident about the coming months. Currently, a slight improvement is already evident after the low (86.2 points in June). Looking ahead to the next six months, the positive trend is continuing and the business climate index is expected to rise to 91.4 points. The interviewees from the manufacturing industry are looking to the future and are expecting a clear improvement – which has a decisive effect on the current business climate and sets the course for GrindTec.
