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.
