After the usual break due to a two-years cycle the international trade fair for sheet metal working took place from November 7 – 10 in Stuttgart. For the last years the BLECHEXPO has been established as the leading fair for the high performance stamping industry and thus also for tool making. The leading manufacturers from stamping technology, tool makers, stamping periphery, electroplating, measurement and inspection technology etc. are mainly to be found in the halls 7 – 9.
Also this year the company OTTO attended the BLECHEXPO on the joint stand of the company "Die Peripherieanlagen" (DPA). OTTO exhibited the test station for inline inspection of punched strips PSS-40 and the optical 3D measurement system FLEX-3A/M. We are especially proud that we could present an InDie module at the booth of our longlasting partner, the company BRUDERER, whom we are very thankful to give us this opportunity for this presentation. The InDie module that was developed together with a stamping tool from the company Firma Leicht + Müller was a very frequented and an very interesting application for many visitors.
We were very happy about the high number of visitors and the wide interest during the four days. The current high capacity utilization and therefore the good mood in our industry was felt everywhere.
In addition to many guests from German- and English-speaking countries we could welcome clients from China for the first time. So for instance a delegation of the company HONGFA has been accompanied through Germany during the time of the show.
