The practical trade fair duo of Blechexpo and Schweisstec takes place on a two-year cycle in the state trade fair centre in Stuttgart (Landesmesse Stuttgart) and is the only event in the world that deals with the complementary technologies of sheet metal processing and joining technology.
Within the shortest timeframe, Blechexpo has been able to gain a leading position in Europe and now ranks second in the world on the list of trade fairs for sheet metal processing. The Schweisstec international specialist trade fair for joining technology forms the ideal complement. It presents all of the relevant mechanical and thermal joining and connecting procedures as well as thermal welding processes.
Sister Trade Fair
The Schweisstec trade fair is always held together with the Blechexpo. As such, detailed and system solutions for the process chains in sheet metal, profile and pipe section production are presented with no gaps. Specialist visitors benefit from practical and time-saving synergy effects.
The Blechexpo international trade fair for sheet metal processing experienced significant growth and showcases worldwide offerings including products and solutions for the industrial processing of sheet metal, pipe and profiles.
