The first edition of Grinding Hub in Stuttgart, Germany is sold out. Dr. Wilfried Schäfer, executive director of Grinding Hub organizer VDW (Association of German Machine Tool Builders), is more than happy with the numbers. “This is good news for all visitors as this high level of interest significantly increases the chances of success for all well-known suppliers who come to Stuttgart to present a comprehensive overview of grinding technology, including all its key aspects. . It also confirms to us, the organizers, that our concept for the event is clear and consistent.

Leading institutes and companies will present some of their specific development topics at two stands in the Grinding Solution Park. Exhibitors at the Science Grinding Solution Park stand in Hall 10 (10D10) include the Institute for Production and Machine Tool Engineering (IFW) at Leibniz University Hannover, the Institute for Machine Components ( IMA) from the University of Stuttgart, Inspire from Zurich, the Institute for Machining Technology (ISF) from the Technical University of Dortmund, the Leibniz Institute for Materials-Oriented Technologies (IWT) from Bremen and the Machinery Laboratory -Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) from RWTH Aachen University. Robert Zmich, associate researcher at the IWT, is already delighted with the involvement of his institute: “The permanent contact with other research institutes and, above all, industrial partners is extremely important for Leibniz-IWT because it can lead on new areas of research in response to current industry issues. At Grinding Hub, we can finally engage in this type of dialogue again, face to face.

Further research topics will be explored at the stand in the Industry Grinding Solutions Park (7C40) in hall 7. The focus here is on user-specific solutions. “We will present our new machine for balancing grinding wheels in tool grinding machines. It was developed to take us to the next level of quality in balancing accuracy. We are delighted that people can talk to each other in person again and, above all, can network again,” emphasizes Herrmann Diebold, CEO of Helmut Diebold in Jungingen. Three other companies will also present topics from the entire process chain on the special stand: Grinding Technology from Cassine (Italy), Hermle Schleiftechnologie and Zollern.

Startup Hub as a first stop for young companies

The Startup Hub offers six young, innovative companies the opportunity to present their ideas and products to the Grinding Hub. The focus is on different software solutions, but also on cylindrical and non-circular grinding machines. Markus Westermeier, co-founder and CEO of Munich-based Spanflug Technologies, explains: “We are very pleased to unveil the latest version of our calculation software for manufacturing companies at the Grinding Hub. It can also be used to automatically calculate grinding operations for turned and milled parts. Also participating in the Startup Hub Rimon Technologies from Freienbach (Switzerland), G-Elements from Wallisellen (Switzerland), Atlas VR from Zurich (Switzerland), Oculavis from Aachen (Germany) and Ultra Tec Anlagentechnik Münz from Laupheim (Germany) ).

Experience Umati live – the global language of mechanical engineering

Umati will also take the opportunity to highlight the benefits of a global mechanical engineering language when Grinding Hub premieres. The joint connectivity initiative of VDW and VDMA (Mechanical Engineering Industry Association) will have its own stand (9D46) in hall 9 of the fair. Dr. Alexander Broos, Head of Research and Technology at VDW: “We look forward to presenting the advantages of open and standardized interfaces based on OPC UA to a live audience. The Umati brand draws its strength from the contact between old and new partners, from the mutual exchanges that take place and from the constitution of a solid network. Visitors can find out more in the regular series of Meet the Expert sessions. The joint stand team is supported by project partner, the Institute for Control Technology for Machine Tools and Manufacturing Systems (ISW) at the University of Stuttgart, as well as long-time partner Orchestra Srl of Umati from Turin (Italy). ).

Trade shows can serve as a platform for start-ups to present ingenious new ideas.

“Our exhibitors are in the starting blocks and can’t wait to get going,” says Wilfried Schäfer from VDW, summing up the mood on the eve of the event. “All the conversations I’ve had confirm that there is a great sense of anticipation among all participants to meet again in person and network.
