True to its broad focus, MicroStep presented live its top-notch solutions in plasma, laser and waterjet processing along with new machining features and production management software.

Recap after a month: Schweissen & Schneiden 2023, the renowned metalworking trade fair hosted in Essen, Germany, proved to be a landmark event in the industry, presenting cutting-edge technologies, attracting global professionals and offering a glimpse into the industry's future. The global gathering witnessed an impressive turnout, with over 1,000 exhibitors showcasing their latest products and solutions in joining, cutting and surfacing across an exhibition area spanning 100,000 square meters.

The trade fair attracted a diverse and international audience, with more than 50,000 visitors from around the world converging on Essen. The attendees saw MicroStep broadly positioned in its largest exhibition area in Schweissen & Schneiden fair to date, showing off products from all corners of its portfolio and turning the MicroStep booth into a lively meeting hub for its customers and its global partner network that spans over 60 countries.

Live Demos and Showstoppers

Attendees had the opportunity to witness live demonstrations that showcased MicroStep's flexible solutions for cutting and processing of sheets, pipes, profiles and domes with cutting-edge 2D and 3D equipment – all developed and produced in-house at MicroStep. Notably, this year's fair presentation featured the multifunctional MG machine with 3D plasma rotator, a drilling unit and new milling and marking capabilities. The upgraded 3D waterjet cutting system, WaterCut, also piqued substantial interest. The space-efficient 2D laser, MSF Compact, equipped with DynaFly technology for rapid, high-quality cutting, was a perfect fit for demonstrating the new motion dynamics of MicroStep's anticipated next generation control system CyberFab® Control.

Among the showstoppers were a striking 1,4 meter high mild steel sample that demonstrated cutting, drilling and, first of all, milling features of the DRM Max series, and a stainless steel dished end with a 2,000 mm diameter, boasting various bevel geometries, holes, and custom contours, all expertly processed by plasma on a DRM machine.

CyberFab Manager: Automated Management of MicroStep-based Production Systems

Centered on the pivotal topics of digitalization and Industry 4.0, MicroStep also introduced CyberFab Manager, a comprehensive CAPP software suite that serves as a centralized production management tool, enabling end-to-end oversight of various processes, including cutting, bending, deburring, welding, and logistics across multiple workstations.

Conclusively, the global crowd at Schweissen & Schneiden 2023 provided a unique opportunity for professionals to engage in networking, collaboration, and knowledge exchange on a global scale. The trade audience at MicroStep booth, both German-speaking and international, benefited from intensive, technology-independent consultation in unique experience zones, ensuring a deep understanding of MicroStep's cutting-edge offerings.

The successful fair may be over now, but with the greater enthusiasm we look forward to the next one!
