Whether degreasing, cleaning, demagnetizing, bath maintenance, automation, cleanliness inspection, corrosion protection, or the handling and packaging of cleaned workpieces – the range of different tasks in industrial parts and surface cleaning is enormous. But the challenge in every case is the same: Manufacturers need products and services that enable them to achieve consistently high-quality results at reasonable cost.
At the 14th International Trade Fair for Industrial Parts and Surface Cleaning, which runs from 31 May to 2 June 2016 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center, some 230 exhibitors will be showcasing their expertise. They come from a total of 16 countries, and include a similar share of companies from outside Germany as last year. After Germany, the largest national exhibitor contingents come from Italy, Switzerland and Turkey.

Solutions for all industry sectors and all types of material, including many innovations

On a net display area of over 6,200 square meters, the exhibiting companies will be presenting offerings for every stage of the industrial parts cleaning process chain, with solutions for every conceivable sector and type of material. Many new products and product upgrades will be on show here for the first time, thus underscoring the key role played by parts2clean as the world’s No. 1 source of the input needed to make all the right decisions and place orders.

Major visitor magnet: the bilingual parts2clean Industry Forum

The three-day parts2clean Industry Forum, boasting a program coordinated by the Fraunhofer Cleaning Technology Alliance, is not just a mainstay of the show, but also one of the most popular international sources of know-how relating to all aspects of industrial parts and surface cleaning. In 25 presentations (delivered in German or English and simultaneously translated) a lineup of high-caliber speakers from industry and the scientific world will be sharing their exerptise on the subject of process optimization and other specialized aspects of industrial parts and surface cleaning. And for the first time this year, the Forum will also feature a special "Innovations Forum for Parts Cleaning". Admission to the parts2clean Industry Forum is free of charge for all parts2clean attendees.

Guided Tours – now in two languages

The Guided Tours allow visitors in groups of up to 25 to get a very quick overview of the exhibitors and the latest innovations that relate to their particular area of interest. For parts2clean 2016 these tours will be offered in two languages (English and German). Two tours to be run daily will be addressing the topics of "Resource-efficient cleaning processes and media" and "Quality assurance and analytics", respectively. Participation is likewise free of charge for parts2clean ticket-holders.

Taking place in parallel with parts2clean from 31 May to 2 June 2016 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center are O&S, the International Trade Fair for Surface Treatments and Coatings, LASYS, the International Trade Fair for Laser Materials Processing, and AUTOMOTIVE Expo, an amalgamation of five trade shows covering various aspects of the automotive industry.
