After the past edition of the industrial fairs Intec and Z could only be carried out as a virtual event due to the corona pandemic, preparations for the face-to-face fairs are now underway from the 7th to the 10th. March 2023 at the Leipzig Trade Fair in full swing. In addition, the successful trade fair network will receive further reinforcement – GrindTec, the international trade fair for tool processing and tool grinding, will take place parallel to Intec and Z from next year. The trade fair network Intec, Z and GrindTec is the first important industry meeting in 2023 for production technology in metalworking, supplier industry and tool industry in Europe.


“Intec and Z are back and can finally start again in presence and with full force at their firmly established, ideal trade fair date at the beginning of the odd years. Thus, suppliers and users from the metalworking industry and the supplier industry can exchange ideas in a personal dialogue at our trade fairs in March 2023 – investment decisions are made and projects are promoted here, explains Markus Geisenberger, Managing Director of Leipziger Messe. Another plus for our exhibitors and visitors is that the internationally leading trade fair GrindTec will start with us as a new organizer and will enrich our trade fair network Intec and Z, which has been very successful for many years. With the world of tool processing and tool grinding, GrindTec further enhances the excellent range of products of the trade fair network.”


The strong trade fair brand GrindTec starts in Leipzig under the motto “From users for users.” Prof. Dr. Wilfried Saxler, Managing Director of the Association of Precision Tool Mechanics e. V. (FDPW): “The ‘new’ GrindTec focuses and focuses on everything that makes up the precision tool mechanic’s trade: from tool development, processing and production to grinding, sharpening, repairing, measuring, coating and digital support. With this concept of GrindTec and the merger with Intec and Z, we have created real added value. On the one hand, for visitors, who can now visit a total of three trade fairs with the associated exhibitors with one ticket, on the other hand for our exhibitors, who can expect additional, valuable trade fair contacts from the Intec and Z visitor series.” The FDPW is and remains the ideal and professional carrier of GrindTec.


Intec, Z and GrindTec: Added value in the trade fair trio


Innovative products as well as current developments in production technology for metalworking, automation technology for upstream and downstream processes in production, but also technology and equipment for workshop and operation are the focus of Intec. Embedded in an environment characterized by the processing industry, mechanical and plant engineering, the automotive industry and well-known research institutions, the fair is an efficient, practice-oriented platform for globally active industry leaders as well as for solution-oriented SMEs from all over Germany and Europe. Despite shorter preparation time, BIMATEC SORALUCE, CERATIZIT, EMAG, EMUGE, FANUC, GROB-WERKE, Gühring, HEDELIUS, Hermle, Igus, INDEX-Werke, MAPAL, NILES-SIMMONS, OKUMA, Paul Horn, Profiroll Technologies, SEW, SCHU


Preparations for the supplier fair are also in full swing: In March next year, Z will again offer suppliers of the medium production stages the tailor-made platform for their positioning on the market. With innovative ideas and sophisticated products, the suppliers present an exhibition tailored to the needs of the industry. Visitors can find out about Z from the smallest component to production technology for the processing industry to complete assemblies.


The registration phase for GrindTec 2023 also started a few weeks ago: At the international trade fair, suppliers of tool processing systems, manufacturers of grinding machines for tool production and processing as well as producers of grinding and dressing technology, among others, will show their innovations. In addition, suppliers of machine peripherals and companies from the field of process technology are also exhibiting at GrindTec. Important players from the industry such as GDS, Gühring, Günter Effgen, Haas Schleifmaschinen, Heinz Berger Maschinenfabrik and Vomat have already secured their stands.


Specialist program sets important impulses for the industry


In addition to the attractive exhibition offer at Intec, Z and GrindTec 2023, the practice-oriented specialist program of the international trade fair network also provides important impulses for the industry. Experts illuminate the dynamic process of integrating additive manufacturing into industrial production at the special show and the specialist forum “Additive Manufacturing – Evolution of a Modern Technology”. The special show and the specialist forum under the title “Sensors – Use and Perspectives in Production” focus, among other things, on the requirements and new concepts around the key sensor technology with proven and evolving production methods. The forward-looking technology topic “Fuel Cell Hub – Value Creation through Hydrogen” is also taken up at the trade fair trio. A joint stand with specialist colloquium offers the optimal framework for exchanging ideas on concrete fuel cell applications.


With different theme worlds, GrindTec will once again present itself in its diverse facets of tool processing. For example, specialist lectures and presentations of trade fair innovations are offered in the GrindTec Forum. In addition, the exciting competition for Tool Grinder of the Year will take place. Visitors can also look forward to news from research on the GrindTec Campus. A special highlight is the GrindTec Innovation Award, which will be awarded for the second time.
