Schweissen und Schneiden 2017

The last week of September was wholly devoted to one thing, the 19th edition of the world’s largest cutting and welding exhibition Schweissen und Schneiden.  This year the fairground was unusually located in Dusseldorf, due to the reconstruction of its counterpart in Essen. Nevertheless, it became a temporary home for more than 1000 exhibitors from over 40 countries all around the world, all of them bringing the best they can offer making this fair the most important forum in the sector of cutting and welding.

This year also marked the biggest exhibition stand in the history of MicroStep. Measuring 250m2 it provided enough space to display two fully equipped machines and at the same time offered space for potential customers to sit down, have a drink, something to eat and discuss their visions. The enthusiastic MicroStep sales team was eager to find solutions for even the most complex cutting needs/dreams. 

There were a total of four MicroStep machines displayed at the exhibition. Two of these were displayed at our own stand. First one was an MG line plasma cutting machine capable of bevel plasma cutting, 3D pipe cutting and various drilling operation thanks to its drilling tool station with added revolver storage for 6 different tools and automatic tool change.  The other machine at the stand was a MSF line laser cutter equipped with state of the art laser rotator and pipe cutting channel. All throughout the exhibition people could witness cutting demonstrations done on both of them.

The other two have been ordered for the occasion by our partners. An MG plasma cutter has been showcasing the latest plasma cutting sources from the German plasma specialist Kjelleberg and MasterCut Compact  at the stand of TEKA has been trying to make the biggest fume mess possible in order to show off the strength and quality of TEKA’s suction and filters.


Industry 4.0

The exhibition was also a place for presentation of the latest development in the Industry Business Network 4.0. This association of small and medium sized enterprises got together with a vision of unified machine communication where machines from different producers work together on level never seen before. By sharing their data with other devices and the factory staff the production will become much more time and cost effective.
