• The world's leading trade fair for the cleaning of parts and surfaces
  • Rising demand for efficient and sustainable cleaning solutions
  • Hannover. Regardless of whether the cleaning task at hand is highly complex or fairly simple, the cleanliness of surfaces and components and the removal of all contaminants is a critical factor for the quality of subsequent processing steps, and indeed of the finished product. Consequently, the demand for cleaning solutions that are efficient, sustainable and produce consistently reliable results is on the rise around the globe. parts2clean – which takes place in Stuttgart – has built an international reputation as an unparalleled source of all the necessary solutions and expertise.

    "The quota of decision-makers attending parts2clean is higher than average. Around 80 percent of the visitors come to the show with a view to investing in new technology", explained Olaf Daebler, the director in charge of parts2clean at Deutsche Messe. "For exhibitors that means plenty of serious inquiries and ideal opportunities for talking business with new customers." This is confirmed by Roland Jung, head of surface technology at Hermann Bantleon GmbH: "At the 2015 show, we again had many visitors coming to our stand with specific projects and issues. Some of these were new contacts, and very promising ones, too." It is no surprise, then, that the Leading International Trade Fair for Industrial Parts and Surface Cleaning is regarded by the industry as an absolute must. "It's important for us to come here and present our broad range of products to the market. After all, parts2clean is the platform that customers look to for information about solutions for their cleaning challenges and the latest developments in the field", said Walter Mück from the marketing department at Pero AG.

    The No.1 source of expert know-how on industrial parts cleaning

    But it's not just the comprehensive array of exhibits covering every sector and every type of material that draws the visitors. The three-day parts2clean Industry Forum is also a big part of the attraction. With an average of more than 25 presentations, which are simultaneously translated (German <> English), the Forum offers valuable know-how on a variety of topics of importance to each and every stage of the process chain for cleaning industrial parts and surfaces. The 2016 event will offer separate sessions on "cleaning approaches", "upstream and downstream processes", and "analytics". Also planned are two blocks of presentations to be held by industrial users. The one block will deal with cleaning applications in specific fields such as medical technology, electronics production, the automotive industry, the aerospace industry, plastics, and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO). The other topic block will address "engineering for cleanliness", with presentations by users on aspects such as cleaning-friendly design and construction, ways of rendering cleaning unnecessary, and clean-friendly production. Presentations may be submitted at www.parts2clean.de under "Program / Expert Forum".

    Guided Tours – the shortcut to valuable expertise and contacts

    The Guided Tours program offered as a service for visitors has proven so popular that it is being expanded for parts2clean 2016. The tours enable visitors to efficiently increase their know-how on everything of special interest to them. It is a quick and easy way to discover relevant solutions and innovations and identify potential solution-providers. The Guided Tours are also highly beneficial for participating exhibitors, enabling them to present their products and innovations to a choice, pre-selected audience right at their stands, resulting in additional contacts and sales prospects.

    Parallel events of relevance to industrial cleaning

    In parallel with parts2clean (31 May to 2 June 2016), several other trade fairs in which parts cleaning plays an essential role are also taking place at the exhibition center in Stuttgart. The various coating processes featured at O&S, the International Trade Fair for Surface Treatments and Coatings, all require a scrupulously clean substrate. LASYS, the International Trade Fair for Laser Materials Processing, showcases laser applications across all sectors of industry and for all types of materials, and here, too, the right outcome often depends on having a clean surface to start with. And also for many of those attending AUTOMOTIVE Expo – a group of five trade fairs covering different aspects of the automotive industry – the cleaning of parts and surfaces is likewise of great importance for manufacturing operations.
