The industrial parts and surface cleaning sector is facing new challenges. parts2clean 2019 shows how these challenges can be met.

The 17th International Trade Fair for Industrial Parts and Surface Cleaning will be held from October 22-24, 2019, at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center.

Areas of current interest include new and modified production technologies, such as the growing use of adhesive bonding, laser welding and coating processes, as well as the additive manufacturing of components. At the same time, there is increased demand for the cleaning of workpieces made from new materials or material combinations, as well as complete assemblies. And then there are the tougher regulatory requirements, such as those contained in the new European Medical Device Regulation (MDR).

These changes are forcing business enterprises to review existing processes and question old ways of doing things.

“parts2clean is the perfect place for businesses to gather the information they need for positive changes,” said Olaf Daebler, global director of parts2clean at Deutsche Messe. “As a global meeting place for industry, the event and its exhibitors not only showcase the very latest technological advances in industrial parts and surface cleaning, but also highlight key trends and offer best-fit solutions.”

The range of leading-edge exhibits allows visitors from many different sectors such as the car and component supply industry, medical technology, mechanical engineering, the aerospace industry, precision engineering and micro-engineering, optics, electronics, semi-conductors and coating technology – to find the information they need quickly and easily.

For the all-over or selective cleaning of surfaces in various situations, there is now a growing trend toward the use of dry-cleaning processes. parts2clean reflects this development with a broad range of offerings, which include systems for CO2 snow blasting, plasma cleaning, laser cleaning, vibratory finishing, and cleaning with compressed air. Visitors will be looking for the right process engineering and plant to remove particulates or film-type contaminants efficiently and with consistent results in order to comply with new, tougher standards. Others will be more interested in technology for cleaning parts made from new materials, parts with highly complex geometries, and more. Also popular with visitors will be solutions for the control and monitoring of cleaning, rinsing and drying processes, as well as systems for checking and quantifying the degree of cleanliness achieved.
