Schall and Messe Stuttgart Continue Partnership

Boosting the Regional Economy / Contract Extension to 2030

Trade fair promoters P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG and Messe Stuttgart are continuing their long-standing partnership and extending it through 2030. As a result of the new contract, established trade fairs such as Blechexpo, Schweisstec, Control, Motek and Bondexpo will continue to be held at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre in the years to come.

P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG is one of Germany’s largest private trade fair promoters and celebrated its 60th anniversary last year. The long-term contract extension will make it possible for the company to develop innovative event concepts in order to meet industry requirements. Bettina Schall, managing director of P. E. Schall GmbH & Co. KG, is pleased with the partnership renewal and emphasises the importance of the collaboration for the successful implementation of high-quality trade fairs. “We’re proud to be part of the dynamic trade fair industry in Stuttgart and look forward to further developing our events and setting new accents.

Economic Significance for the Region

Continuation of the collaboration has considerable economic significance for the Stuttgart region. Not only do the trade fairs attract international exhibitors and visitors, they also help to strengthen the region’s economic base. They provide companies with the opportunity of presenting their latest products and innovations to a broad-based expert audience and establishing important business contacts. “The contract renewal is a great success for us as an enterprise, and even more so for the region. Together we’ll continue to strengthen Stuttgart as a trade fair venue,” says Stefan Lohnert, managing director of Messe Stuttgart.

Upcoming trade fairs organised by Schall at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre:

  • 10 to 13 October 2023: 41st Motek/Bondexpo
  • 7 to 10 November 2023: 16th Blechexpo/ Schweisstec

In Schall’s anniversary year, we visit partners of excellence at our international trade fairs. Today our anniversary tour takes us to the global system supplier of stamping and forming technology Andritz Kaiser, based in Bretten-Gölshausen near Pforzheim. Technical Managing Director Joachim Bolz and Deputy Sales Manager Wolfgang Wiedenmann give us exciting insights into the design and manufacture of state-of-the-art press installations.

Kaiser-Pressen – founded in 1945 – is a traditional company that has grown out of a family business and joined Andritz AG. The company stands for quality, passion and precision. Customer requirements have top priority. In the field of special machine construction, Andritz-Kaiser is an appreciated partner worldwide. This is because the Kaiser presses manufactured in Gölshausen are known for their efficiency and reliability. The portfolio ranges from the press itself to the complete production line including conveyor system and automation.

With a press force of 63 t up to 2500 t, the automatic presses from Andritz Kaiser punch components for the automotive and mobile phone manufacturing industries as well as for household accessories, for example. Around the world, more than 8,000 Andritz Kaiser automatic punching and forming machines produce parts of the highest quality. World market leaders from a wide range of industries rely on the technology of the company from Gölshausen, which sources its components and parts from manufacturers in the region. Special assemblies can only be produced in the company’s own special production. This includes plastic components developed and manufactured in-house using a customised 3D printing process and specially optimised materials.

Andritz Kaiser is one of the loyal supporters and exhibitors at the Schall trade fair Stanztec. Wolfgang Wiedenmann has also been involved in the Schall trade fair advisory board for many years.

Stanztec offers Andritz Kaiser a customised, flawless presentation platform directly in front of its own company gates. The focus at the compact trade fair at the Pforzheim location is on the transfer of technology, know-how and knowledge between local suppliers and customers, as well as interested parties from all over the world. What is on offer here is not a wide range of products from around the world, but high-end stamping technology for the strictly economical production of functional parts and assemblies.

In addition to their conviction for the Stanztec trade fair concept, the Andritz Kaiser and Schall companies are also united by their awareness of a decades-long company tradition that stands for solidity, precision and high quality. Added to this is a pronounced passion for technology, innovations and new products, as well as the courage to consistently fill new approaches with life.

Both companies know the value of a strong team spirit and smooth cooperation within the workforce. To this end, Andritz Kaiser has drawn up guidelines for joint activities and for appreciative, objective-oriented communication.

Among other things, they state: “Our hearts are in it” and “We generate performance through passion” – and it’s in precisely this spirit that the Schall trade fair company is setting sail together with Andritz Kaiser and many other illustrious names in the industry, and setting course for Stanztec 2024.

And so we’ll keep the speedometer flying and do what we’ve always been burning for: Trade fairs for markets!

We will meet at Stanztec 2024 in the Congress Centrum Pforzheim!

During Schall’s anniversary year, we’re visiting excellence partners associated with our international trade fairs. TRUMPF in Ditzingen, Germany, has opened its doors to us today and is providing us with exciting insights into the globally active high-tech company with more than 16,000 employees We’re welcomed by Joachim Silber, Director of Corporate Marketing, Sales + Services.

As international technology leaders and longstanding Blechexpo exhibitors, TRUMPF has played a significant role in shaping Blechexpo’s success story thanks to their active association with Schall and their valuable involvement in the trade fair advisory board. Blechexpo is held once every two years in Stuttgart along with its companion trade fair Schweisstec. Today, Blechexpo presents worldwide offerings for products and solutions for the industrial processing of sheet metal, pipe and profiles. TRUMPF’s portfolio covers practically the entire spectrum in this regard. As technology leaders in the field of machine tools and lasers for industrial production, TRUMPF’s products have an impact in virtually all spheres of life. From delicate hands in wristwatches to turbine blades in aircraft – there’s hardly a component in the manufacturing industry that hasn’t been processed with the help of a machine, a laser, a power tool or a generator from the company in Ditzingen. TRUMPF works in partnership with manufacturers in numerous cutting-edge sectors, making special, innovative manufacturing processes possible in the first place. And thus with software and services from a single source, customised turnkey packages are created for industry customers.

TRUMPF showcases its comprehensive range of products and services at Blechexpo, including the latest technical developments and forward-looking solutions. TRUMPF also presented a fascinating preview of the opportunities opened up by the smart factory for the first time at Blechexpo by programming a production process in Stuttgart and running it directly on a machine located in Chicago. Blechexpo visitors were able to witness order processing live in the USA on monitor screens.

TRUMPF’s targeted mission is to further develop and digitally network production technology, making it even more economical, precise and future-proof. Special focus is placed on the objective of making production more efficient – together with its upstream and downstream processes. Consequently, TRUMPF is working towards the industrial world of the future, to which contributions are also being made by software solutions which pave the way to the smart factory, as well as industrial electronics that facilitate high-tech processes. The issues of energy and sustainability also play an important role in these processes.

Within the framework of their cooperative partnership, TRUMPF and Schall are united by their enthusiasm for putting visionary ideas into practice, for advancing future technologies and for always staying a step ahead of technical progress. Both companies pursue cross-industry approaches and think in broader contexts. For example, the presentation of complete process sequences also plays an important role in the conceptualisation of Schall’s trade fairs. TRUMPF and Schall are also united by their clear focus on the needs of their customers. Both companies strive towards process optimisation, while at the same time enhancing quality for the customer. This is exemplified at TRUMPF by the EdgeLine Bevel process which automatically prepares components for welding. It eliminates the need for a separate production step. And post-welding results satisfy the most stringent requirements.

The corporate culture cultivated under the umbrella of the global player from Ditzingen is undoubtedly unique as well. The family-run company with a history dating back roughly 100 years regards its employees as an essential key to its success. This sense of appreciation is reflected in a broad range of offerings and programmes for the advancement and well-being of company employees.

At TRUMPF too, preparations for Blechexpo 2023 are already running at full bore, so that customers and business partners, as well as Schall trade fair promoters, can already look forward to experiencing the latest technologies and ground-breaking advances at TRUMPF’s trade fair booth.

This is precisely why we don’t slack off on the tempo and do what we’ve always been passionate about: making trade fairs for markets!

People will connect at Blechexpo 2023!

In Schall’s anniversary year, we visit partners of excellence at our international trade fairs. Today our path leads us through the picturesque Black Forest to an internationally renowned company in the plastics industry, ARBURG, based in Lossburg in Baden-Württemberg. We will be welcomed by Dr Christoph Schumacher, Director Global Marketing.

WIR SIND DA – ARBURG’s brand promise to customers, partners and employees also characterises the beginning of the cooperation between the innovative injection moulding machine manufacturer from the Black Forest and the Schall trade fair company. Trade fair promoter Paul Eberhard Schall had the following to say about the premiere of Fakuma in 1981: “Without the commitments and innovative ideas of the first exhibitors, led by Eugen and Karl Hehl as managing partners of ARBURG at the time, the success story of Fakuma would not have come about as it did.” At the first Fakuma, ARBURG was already flying the flag at a 120 square metre exhibition stand in Friedrichshafen. In more than four decades, the productive partnership between the two companies has steadily deepened. ARBURG values Fakuma as one of the most important trade fairs in its worldwide strategic trade fair planning and as a practical platform in the tri-border region of Germany, Austria and Switzerland. ARBURG also supports Fakuma with heart and soul through its participation in the trade fair advisory board. A pioneering spirit, enthusiasm for technical innovations and the willingness to make courageous decisions not only united the Hehl brothers with Paul Eberhard Schall, but also characterise the spirit of both companies to this day. ARBURG is currently presenting itself at Fakuma with a 1700 square metre, two-storey exhibition stand, which makes the company motto impressively tangible: WIR SIND DA.

The family-owned company ARBURG can look back on a history of around 100 years and is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of machines for plastics processing. Around 2,800 employees work at the company’s headquarters in Lossburg – around 3,400 worldwide. The company has its own organisations in 25 countries and at 34 locations. With ARBURG ALLROUNDER injection moulding machines – 100 per cent “made in Lossburg” – customers from all over the world produce high-quality plastic parts, e.g. for the automotive and packaging industries, communications and consumer electronics, medical technology and the toy and white goods sectors. The products created on Arburg machines range from so-called micro parts weighing just a few hundredths of a gram to plastic parts weighing four kilograms – including numerous everyday objects from toothbrushes to car switches. The ARBURG portfolio is supplemented by the freeformer for additive manufacturing for batch size 1 and small series. In addition, there are robotic systems, customer- and industry-specific turnkey systems and other peripherals. ARBURG thus covers the entire spectrum: from individual one-off parts to large-scale production in quantities of millions. The promise WIR SIND DA therefore also applies when it comes to efficient and innovative solutions for plastics processing. It also applies to dealing with future issues. For example, ARBURG is committed to being a pioneer in the areas of energy and production efficiency as well as digitalisation and sustainability. The digital products and services are combined in the “arburgXworld” programme. These enable customers to achieve measurably greater efficiency and more transparency in production.

The arburgGREENworld programme encompasses all aspects and activities relating to sustainability, resource conservation, CO2 reduction and the circular economy. With this programme, in addition to producing cutting-edge technology in plastics processing, ARBURG is also assuming responsibility for the future of our planet. And where could this message be conveyed more impressively than in a high-tech company surrounded by the unique natural landscape of the Black Forest?

And so customers and business partners, as well as the trade fair company Schall as the organiser, can already be excited about the sustainable and efficient solutions for plastics processing with which ARBURG will once again confirm its brand promise to the industry at Fakuma 2023: WIR SIND DA.

“Because it’s in our genes, we can’t help but dedicate ourselves to the further development and perfection of injection moulding with uncompromising consistency and devotion,” says ARBURG. The same attitude motivates the Schall trade fair company to continuously develop and optimise its trade fairs – for ARBURG, as for Schall, the highest goal clearly remains the best possible success for the customer.

And that’s exactly why we keep the speedometer flying and do what we’ve always been passionate about: Trade fairs for markets!

We’ll meet again at FAKUMA 2023!

Werth Messtechnik GmbH cultivates the values of a family business, focuses on customer orientation and long-term company development. Werth sees its well-trained and motivated team of employees as an important prerequisite for the company’s success.
Diverse cooperations with universities, colleges and institutes complement the company’s own development work and provide new ideas. By participating in national and international committees such as DIN, VDI and ISO, Werth Messtechnik employees contribute their know-how to professional standardization in the field of coordinate measuring technology.
Innovative developments, outstanding product quality, user satisfaction and international orientation are corporate goals of Werth Messtechnik GmbH, which also have top priority at Schall, the private trade fair company. They are the driving force behind the continued successful development of Schall trade fairs in general, and the 35th Control in particular.
And that’s exactly why we keep the speedometer flying and do what we’ve always been burning for: Trade fairs for markets!

We’ll meet again at Control 2023!
