Stanztec 2022 Must Be Cancelled – Next Event in June 2024

The seventh Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology will have to be cancelled this year and will take place again in 2024. The exclusive industry meet for stamping all-rounders and sheet metal specialists was scheduled to take place at the end of June 2022. However, current restrictions make it impossible to hold the event at its traditional venue in the Pforzheim Congress Centre and the exhibitors have spoken out in favour of postponing the trade fair in keeping with its biennial schedule.

Frickenhausen, 11 February 2022 – Traditionally, the entire spectrum of technologies, processes, products, tooling and production equipment is covered by Stanztec’s portfolio, which is widely celebrated as a highly attractive technical event in the stamping technology industry. Small but impressive and with outstanding visitor quality, Stanztec has always been praised in particular for its practical benefits. “Precisely for this reason, we’ve done everything in our power to be able to stage Stanztec 2022,” observes Bettina Schall, managing director of trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. “Due to the fact that our exhibitors and expert visitors already had to forgo Stanztec in 2020 owing to the pandemic, and because we see ourselves as service providers who act on their behalf, we pulled all the stops in trying to find a solution,” confirms the trade fair organiser. And a solution was within reach: “In terms of both scheduling and organisation, it would have been possible to hold the event at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre from the 28th through the 30th of June, 2022.”

Hall ventilation, booth sizes, spacing requirements, logistics areas, parking facilities and infrastructure – the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre has amply demonstrated its suitability, even under corona restrictions. “The advantages and versatility of the Stuttgart location for Stanztec 2022 under current general conditions were obvious,” points out Andreas Wittur, member of the management team at P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. “Objective considerations spoke in favour of a one-time change of location this year in order to be able to hold the trade fair for stamping technology, but the results of an exhibitor survey were negative.”

The next Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology will thus take place in June 2024. Stamping technology specialists are in great demand as suppliers to challenging industries such as the automotive, medical technology and chemical sectors. The high-end technology which is in focus at the trade fair attracts a discerning, world-class expert audience with an extensive interest in innovation and continuous change. Challenges faced by the industry include the progressive networking of processes, functions integration, automation, increasing product individualisation and smaller lot sizes, as well as the ongoing shortage of qualified personnel.

Exhibitors Praise Stanztec 2018

Exclusive Meeting Place for Stamping All-Rounders and Sheet Metal Specialists

The sixth Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology from 19 to 21 June 2018 closed with highly successful results. Expert visitors with an interest in stamping technology were presented with worldwide offerings for stand-alone and system solutions unparalleled by similarly positioned events held in the past. 151 exhibitors from five countries and 3407 expert visitors from 31 nations came together on 3500 square metres of floor space (37,675 square feet) at the Congress Centre Pforzheim.

Stanztec 2018 Points Out Market Challenges and Appropriate Solutions

Numerous new products, innovations, modern solutions and services from the world of stamping technology were exhibited at the trade fair which was once again fully booked out. This is made possible by exhibitors who, amongst others, are at home as global market leaders in “stamping technology valley” in and around Pforzheim: technology leaders and service all-rounders in the field of stamping technology who have been attracting a more and more international audience over the years. “At the same time, the range of technologies, processes, products, tooling and production equipment associated in any way with stamping technology is continuously expanding”, observes project manager Georg Knauer of trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. Once again in 2018, Stanztec provided the right answers to the big questions of the industry sector, i.e. with regard to trends which are meaningful for stamping technology and toolmaking: more and more extensive networking of processes, functions integration and automation solutions. The drivers behind these changes include increasing product individualisation with smaller manufacturing lot quantities, and at the same time a growing lack of trained personnel. “Stanztec focuses attention on the essentials”, said Klaus Müller, managing director of Leicht + Müller Stanztechnik GmbH + Co.KG and spokesperson of the trade fair advisory board during his welcoming speech at the opening press conference for Stanztec.

The Right Answers to the Big Questions of the Industry Sector

Schall trade fair promoters have also proven their farsightedness by holding the right trade fair with the right concept at the right venue, noted Müller during the subsequent tour of the trade fair. “Stanztec is truly a jewel amongst specialised technical trade fairs.”

The technology leaders are currently faced with numerous challenges: whereas supply bottlenecks and the lack of qualified personnel are impeding the growth of stamping companies, the tolerances are becoming more and more strict and the quality demands placed on stampings are increasing. After all, stamping technology enterprises are in great demand as suppliers to challenging clientele such as the automotive, pharmaceuticals and chemicals industries. The high-end stamping technology on which attention is focused at Stanztec attracts absolute world-class expert visitors once every two years – from high-performance tooling for mass production of quality stampings and options for small manufacturing lots, right on up to offerings for peripheral production equipment. The percentage of expert visitors from foreign countries has been on the rise for years. 15% of the visitors came from outside of Germany in 2018, above all from Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Slovenia and Turkey.

Exhibitor Praise: Lively Exchange of Practical Ideas and Networking

The exhibitors and the members of the trade fair advisory board agree: Stanztec is becoming more and more attractive each year. On the whole, the internationalism and quality of the expert visitors was greater than ever before, exclaimed the booth personnel of several companies. “For exhibitors and expert visitors alike, a trade fair is only successful if it results in practical benefits”, says Knauer in explaining the trade fair concept. Issues addressed in detail in Pforzheim included, amongst others, practical feasibility, quick integration into existing processes and solutions to current problems. It’s not just about “seeing and being seen” – participation in this exclusive industry event is perceived as a boosting factor for the company image as well.

Worldwide Stamping Technology Offerings in “Stamping Technology Valley”

Stamping: Highly Precise and Innovative

Market leaders in the field of sheet metal processing are concentrated regionally in “Stamping Technology Valley” in and around Pforzheim. The last six editions of the Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology, which is held once every two years, have taken place at the Congress Centre Pforzheim (CCP). Everybody who’s anybody in the field of stamping technology will come together here once again from the 19th through the 21st of June, 2018.

“The offerings must be brought to the market, and not the other way around” – a well-known saying of late trade fair promoter Paul E. Schall, founder of P.E. Schall GmbH & Co KG. The private trade fair promoters are still committed to this maxim today – with tremendous success. Stanztec has been growing for years, impeded only by available capacity at the CCP. Once again this year, a long waiting list confirms that interest remains unbroken in precision stampings made of steel, copper, brass, aluminium and other materials, as well as the associated production technology. And thus stampings can be found in all important every day objects: from automotive parts right on up to electronic components for medical technology and housings for consumer electronics. High-end stamping technology and stamped products, as presented at Stanztec, provide the basis for increasingly complex mechatronic and micro-system components, assemblies, subsystems and complete devices.

With Regional Roots but Nevertheless International

For the simple reason that Stanztec’s tradition evolved within the triangle formed by the rivers Enz, Nagold and Würm, and because there’s hardly anyone who can match the companies headquartered in this region where precision and technology are concerned, more and more international expert visitors journey to northwest Baden-Württemberg. The number of interested parties who gather information once every two years at Stanztec regarding the latest developments in product and service offerings is rising continuously. “Visitor internationalism has increased as well in recent years. Visitors came from 23 countries at the last event including experts from Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Hungary.

Roughly 150 exhibitors from five countries will present their offerings on 3500 square metres (37,000 sq. ft.), because the specialised industry meet is known for its high standards. You won’t find any manufacturers of cheap or mass-produced parts here. Instead, exhibiting companies are evolving into stamping technology all-rounders to an ever greater extent. Systems are offered for applications ranging from production planning right on up to precision finishing, high-end tooling for economical manufacturing of small quantities as well as quality-oriented mass production, and handling and feed devices for integrated further processing.

High-End Stamping Technology

Furthermore, the sixth Stanztec will not only present current technologies, processes, presses, tooling and stamping peripherals. Innovations will also be exhibited whose benefits will be revealed in tomorrow’s routine daily production. The latest developments provide answers to the big questions in sheet metal processing companies, for example with regard to functions integration, variant diversity and fluctuating production lot quantities. But market requirements for greater precision and improved quality have to be fulfilled as well. As is the case in many industry sectors, this also involves good quality management, automation and improved processing sequences. Schall trade fair promoters organises Stanztec in accordance with these market trends and their functional application in actual processing practice.

Stanztec Presents Stamping Technology in All of its Facets

Stamped Parts Keep the World Turning

Precision stamped parts made of steel, copper, brass, aluminium and other materials are used in all important everyday objects: from automotive parts right on up to electronic components and housings. All renowned players in the field of stamping technology will meet at the Stanztec trade fair for stamping technology at the Pforzheim Congress Centre from the 19th through the 21st of June, 2018.

The specialised industry meet is known for its high standards. You won’t find any manufacturers of cheap or mass-produced parts here. International high-tech stamping enterprises with high levels of vertical integration and the most up-to-date technologies are at home in and around Pforzheim. And thus it’s only logical that “Stamping Valley” serves as a venue for Europe’s most important stamping event. Manufacturers and distributors of stamping technology equipment, tooling and peripherals, as well as expert visitors from all over the world, meet at Stanztec.

Stamping Technology: an Integral Part of Innumerable Industrial Products

For example plug connectors – which are frequently produced as stampings – are installed in electric and conventional cars, LED technology, medical devices and consumer appliances. This necessitates highly precise manufacturing and tolerances down to hundredths of a millimetre and less. High-end stamping technology and stamped products provide the basis for increasingly complex mechatronic and micro-systems components, assemblies, subsystems and complete devices.

High-performance stamping machines with either fixed or adjustable strokes are required to this end – which can be run seven days a week, 24 hours a day. Highest possible rotational speed with top precision only works with high-end tooling, efficient quality monitoring and a perfectly matched feed function, for example roll feed or servo feed. “In particular there’s great demand for quality assurance technology which can be integrated into the manufacturing process”, observes Stanztec project manager Georg Knauer of trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG. Modern camera technology, which will also be showcased at the industry event, is helpful for sorting out bad parts before processing has been completed.

Ever Stricter Demands for Precision and Quality

The tolerances are getting tighter and the stamped parts are becoming smaller – there’s no doubt about this in the meantime as far as the experts are concerned. The world of smartphones and compact electric devices, as well as smaller cars and production machines, makes it necessary to pack more and more technology into ever smaller spaces. Stamping technology must keep up with the pace in this respect and continuously develop new innovations where precision and toolmaking are involved. At the same time, users expect flexible machines which support quick tooling changeovers, and have a small footprint and a long service life. Furthermore, it should also be feasible to process as many formats as possible without retooling. And they should be usable as standalone machines on the one hand, as well as in combination with handling technology, for further processing and in intra-logistics processes on the other hand. “The standards achieved by the exhibition offerings for stamping technology are so impressive that they’re capable of meeting all demands”, says Knauer optimistically.

Well-Visited and Always Booked Out

The upcoming trade fair is already booked out and several dozen companies are on the waiting list. This is due to the fact that the limited space available at the Pforzheim Exhibition Centre once every two years for Stanztec is bursting at the seams. Roughly 150 exhibitors from five countries will present their offerings on 37,000 square feet.

Stanztec Booked Out Again

Trade Fair for Stamping Technology in Pforzheim Enjoys Ever-Increasing Popularity

The Stanztec trade fair for stamping technologies will present stamping technology at its best for the sixth time from the 19th through the 21st of June, 2018. Top specialists from precision and stamping technology will meet here under a single roof at the Pforzheim Congress Centre (CCP).

Stanztec as Eldorado for Full Service Suppliers

The trend in this field of technology is moving towards full-service suppliers who are no longer just an extended workbench for stampings which are marketed in the automotive, aviation and aerospace industries. Customers enjoy the full range of services offered today by technologically advanced manufacturers and suppliers who not only provide pure stamping services, but rather deburring, joining, surface finishing, plastic overmoulding and even the assembly of entire modules and subsystems as well – by means of semi or fully automated processes. This development is reflected by the specialised trade fair held in Pforzheim, where manufacturers and distributors of stamping technology equipment and tooling present convincing solutions to expert visitors from all over the world.

Increasing Number of International Expert Visitors

Speaking of expert visitors, the number of interested parties who gather information once every two years at Stanztec regarding the latest developments in the product and service offerings of the more than 160 exhibitors from four countries is rising continuously. Whereas roughly 3300 visitors attended the event in 2014, more than 3500 travelled to the trade fair in 2016. Project manager Georg Knauer of trade fair promoters P.E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG is expecting a further increase in Stanztec visitor numbers this year. “Visitor internationalism has increased as well in recent years. Interested parties from 23 countries attended the last event”, including experts from Italy, Spain, Denmark, Sweden, Poland and Hungary.

High Levels of Innovation in Stamping Technology

Automotive and aviation are amongst the most demanding industry sectors. But food producers, machinery manufacturers, chemical concerns and electronics manufacturers, for example, also demand top-quality parts and associated services. Companies in the field of precision and stamping technology are only able to live up to these exacting demands if they improve themselves continuously. As is the case in many industry sectors, this involves good quality management, more and more automation and improved processing sequences. Beyond this, automation, high-performance tooling, high-performance stamped components and complete modules with integrated functions are in demand as well. Schall organises its trade fair in accordance with these market trends and their functional application in actual processing practice, with the intention of exhibiting the tools which help manufacturers, processors and the expert visitors in their routine daily work. “All of Schall’s trade fairs are dedicated to an orientation towards practical benefits”, confirms Knauer.

With High-End Stamping Technology to Future Production Scenarios

Furthermore, the sixth Stanztec will not only showcase present-day technologies, processes, presses, tooling and stamping peripherals. With a look to the future, innovations will be presented at the event which will take on an important role for work in the future. High-end stamping technology and stamped products provide the basis for increasingly complex mechatronic and micro-systems components, assemblies, subsystems and complete devices, for which market demand is steadily increasing. The challenges coupled with this trend include advancing functions integration, increasing variants diversity and the associated fluctuation with regard to manufacturing lot quantities.

High End - Stamping Technology

With its highly specialized range of stamping technology and stamping equipment, Stanztec – Trade Fair for Stamping Technology has gained international recognition over the past 10 years. More than 3,500 highly qualified professionals from 25 nations gathered at the CCP Congress Center of the Gold- und Schmuckstatt Pforzheim for the last session in early summer 2016. Here, 169 manufacturers and suppliers presented a wide range of innovative products and efficient solutions from the world of stamping technology. In times of parts miniaturization and mechatronics, this is primarily based on highly integrated functional components and thus sets itself apart from the gray monotony of the increasingly globalized mass production of conventional stamped parts that has been transferred to low-wage countries.

Punching technology vs.

Punched is far from being good, i.e. reproducible quality punching, and cut is far from being fine-cut! The Stanztec trade event has nothing to do with field, forest and meadow punching shops and their equipment – but it does with highly developed punching and fineblanking technology including process functions such as laser welding and overmolding with plastic! And this plays a central role in the series/mass production of high-quality mechanical components for mechatronic assemblies and devices in both the automotive and consumer goods industries. On an exhibition area of 3,500 m², Stanztec will present all the building blocks for sustainably efficient quality parts production, from tools to machines and coil unwinding and feeding equipment to integrated process functions.

Less material, more performance

Quality stamped metal or combined metal/plastic components in the form of miniaturized modern mechatronics are capable of converting electrical energy into single-axis or multi-axis motion sequences very efficiently and at low cost. This in turn is one of the prerequisites for realizing higher power density with simultaneously reduced and weight-optimized device dimensions. But that’s not the only way to conserve resources and protect the environment. This is because the sophisticated, multifunctional combination tools and the more and more electrically operated punching machines and equipment also play their part in the sustainable, energy-efficient series/mass production of high-quality punched/fineblanked parts.
