Exhibitor statements on DeburringEXPO

Ralf Krieger, Contract Shop Manager Europe, Extrude Hone GmbH, Germany

"The issues of deburring and precision surface finishing are becoming more and more important for manufacturing companies, because something is always left behind despite all of the optimisation measures implemented in advance, and has to be removed. From our point of view DeburringEXPO has developed very well – we were able to establish significantly more qualified contacts this year than two years ago, and they're more international as well.”

Günter Hiedels, project management, Weber Ultrasonics AG, Germany

"We presented a new ultrasonic deburring process. Not only was interest very strong, we were also able to schedule sample processing with representatives from several companies."

Jörg Nubert, managing director, Piller Entgrattechnik GmbH, Germany

"The first DeburringEXPO went surprisingly well for us, and things have gotten even better this year. We've fielded lots of good leads including projects we assume will finally lead to orders, and that's extremely positive."

Keisuke Kaga, Head of Europe Sales, Sugino Machine Ltd., Japan

"Visitors at our booth came primarily from the automotive and aviation industries, as well as from the fields of hydraulics and pneumatics. We know the tier 1 suppliers and the big companies from these industry sectors. Here at the trade fair we've also been able to establish contact with tier 2 and 3 suppliers, as well as smaller companies, with whom we weren't familiar in the past. And not only companies from Germany, but from many other countries as well such as Italy, France, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, the USA, India and Brazil. Trade fair participation has paid off for us and we'll be back again in two years."

Jessica Iacovitti, Sales Department, Tecnomacchine Srl, Italy

"We exhibited at a big machine tool trade fair a few weeks ago, but the most interesting visitors for us are very well represented here at DeburringEXPO. We came to Karlsruhe with the goal of maintaining existing customer relations, as well as establishing contact with new companies. We've been very successful with both and we're very pleased that we participated at the trade fair. I think we'll exhibit again at the next event in two years."

Joe Zou, Overseas Business Contact, Guangdong HESH Industry Technology Group Co., Ltd., China

"We got to know some potential sales partners who will make it possible for us to export our products worldwide. And we've been able to establish contacts with potential end customers. I'm sure we'll exhibit at the trade fair again.”

Adrian Forster, Barrel Finishing Sales Manager, Forplan AG, Switzerland

"Our solutions for small parts processing met with great interest on the part of visitors from the textiles industry, medical engineering and the automobile industry, as well as job-shop processors, and they generated lots of valuable leads. The trade fair went very well for us and we'll be back again in two years."

Yamac Aksan, industrial engineer and proprietor of AKS TEKNIK Deburring and Marking Technologies, Turkey

"The trade fair is exceptionally well organised and the visitor profile is world-class. All of the visitors come with concrete tasks, and we're able to establish precisely the kind of contacts we want. We'll definitely be back again."

Tanja Kanzy, marketing manager, KULLEN-KOTI GmbH, Germany

"Each visitor brings a concrete case involving a specific application along with him, so that consultation can begin immediately. Discussions about how which burrs can be removed can last as long as two hours. This is not the case at any other trade fair and it makes DeburringEXPO a very important event for us."

Marcel Prößler, Optical 3D Measuring Technology Sales, Alicona Imaging GmbH, Austria

"All of the visitors are involved with the issues of deburring and edge rounding. As a result, we can advise them directly about how they can optimise their processes through the use of our measuring technology. We were able to generate lots of valuable leads with companies from a great variety of industry sectors. The trade fair was very good for us."
