Around 230 exhibitors present clean solutions and a lot of know-how for the optimized cleaning of parts and surfaces
10th leading international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning in Stuttgart, Germany from 23rd to 25th October 2012
(PresseBox) (Neuffen, )At the 10th parts2clean trade fair being held at the fairground in Stuttgart, Germany from 23rd till 25th October 2012, around 230 exhibitors will be presenting products and services for the optimized cleaning of parts and surfaces in manufacturing industries, maintenance and remanufacturing. Complementing the world’s most comprehensive trade fair in this field, the parts2clean expert forum, offers valuable knowledge to enable industrial parts to be cleaned reproducibly, cost-effectively and with a low ecological impact. This well established information source is being held for the first time this year bilingual (German – English).
In a growing number of industrial sectors, the cleanliness of components and surfaces has become a quality criterion defined by specific, reproducible residual contamination values which need to be attained and documented. With global competition continuing to rise, it has become essential for companies involved in the manufacturing business, in maintenance or remanufacturing to be able to fulfill these requirements in a cost-optimized way and as ecologically efficiently as possible. However, this can only be achieved by implementing solutions which are individually adapted to a company’s needs and capable of carrying out complex cleaning tasks, removing oils and greases, removing burrs, assessing residual contamination or providing temporary corrosion protection. All these solutions and more will be presented by the 230 exhibitors taking part in the 10th parts2clean at the Stuttgart fairground from 23rd to 25th October 2012.
Innovations and further developments in all branches of industry
The world’s broadest trans-sectoral range of products and services will be on show for the industrial cleaning of parts and surfaces made from all types of materials along the process chain. Exhibiting companies from all areas of industry will be presenting numerous innovations and further developments. The focus this year is on solutions which contribute towards improving process reliability, cost-effectiveness and environmental compatibility. In the field of equipment manufacturing, a variety of solutions enabling cleaning systems to be operated with better energy efficiency will be on show, one of which being the first “green” ultrasound generator. Exhibitors will also be presenting innovations for inspecting and documenting cleanliness - tasks which are becoming increasingly important in many areas of industry. Among them, for example, is a compact in-line measuring system which enables residual contamination analyses to be carried out in compliance with VDA 19 during the manufacturing process. The exhibitors also have innovations to showcase in the segments of cleaning media, bath monitoring and bath maintenance, such as detergents based on renewable resources, systems for efficient process and waste water treatment and devices for measuring concentrations in liquids. In addition to this, a further range of innovative solutions will also be presented which ensure that cleaned parts and surfaces are protected against corrosion, preserved and packaged in an efficient and cost-effective way.
Bilingual parts2clean expert forum – knowledge that’s worth having
One of the highlights of the leading trade fair is the expert forum. “In order to meet the growing international demand for information about industrial parts and surface cleaning, for the first time we’ll be holding the forum in two languages this year. The German or English speeches, respectively, will be simultaneously translated,” stated Hartmut Herdin, CEO of the event management company, fairXperts GmbH. The agenda, which will be coordinated on the technical side by the Fraunhofer cleaning technology alliance, provides valuable knowledge concerning a wide range of industrial areas. On Day One, in one session the talks will focus on efficiency and costs in cleaning technology. In the process, questions such as “How much should cleaning cost?” will be answered. In the second block of speeches, examples of process solutions will be presented, such as cleaning before applying PVD coatings and cleaning techniques for use in the optical industry. On Day Two, four speeches held in the first session will be concerned with the topic of “Cleaning analysis – methods and systems”. The talks held in the afternoon will concentrate on special techniques and their application. For example, presentations will be held about combining high-pressure cleaning with atmospheric pressure plasma, plasma cleaning in circuit board manufacture and electronics, using light to clean parts and also the CO2 snow-jet cleaning technology for use in the serial production of precision and mechatronic products. “Cleaning media and corrosion protection” are the focus of the first set of talks on Day Three of the exhibition. Among other things, the following topics will be discussed: “Common test procedures for temporary corrosion protection, assessing results, consequences for day-to-day practice” and “Cleaning and cleaning media in the process chain, the importance of the various media systems and examples of practical applications”. The focus of the speeches held in the afternoon will be on revising VDA 19 – experiences and feedback after seven years of VDA 19, the need to revise it from the point of view of an automotive supplier, automotive manufacturer and cleanliness service provider. Participation in the parts2clean expert forum is free of charge to visitors. The complete agenda and further information can be found under www.parts2clean.com. The leading international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning running from 23rd till 25th October 2012 will be open from 9.00 till 17.00 on all three days of the exhibition.
