The need for resilient supply chains and increased demand for improved sustainability are the driving forces for major changes in industrial parts and surface cleaning. How these challenges can be mastered will be the focus at parts2clean – taking place from 11th – 13th October 2022 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center in Germany.
From the automotive industry and its suppliers, to plant and mechanical engineering, medical and sensor technology, aerospace, energy technology and the semiconductor supply industry, new and modified products and manufacturing technologies – in the field of industrial parts and surface cleaning – require new, adapted solutions. This is also the case with the recycling of raw materials and the remanufacturing of products, which is becoming increasingly important due to a shortage of raw materials and the need to conserve resources. Added to this are trends such as digitisation and AI, as well as stricter regulatory requirements and climate protection objectives.
“parts2clean addresses all these challenges. Every segment of industrial cleaning technology and all of the relevant suppliers are represented at this flagship fair, which offers a comprehensive overview of trends, technologies, procedures and processes that no other trade fair can rival,” explains Hendrik Engelking, global director at organisers Deutsche Messe.
With its cross industry offerings and broad range of materials on display, parts2clean enables users from all sectors of manufacturing, as well as from reconditioning and recycling, to learn about the latest cutting edge solutions from industrial cleaning technology and directly compare the various technologies – from wet chemical processes, energy efficient drying solutions, cleaning containers and workpiece carriers to technologies for dry cleaning, such as CO2 snow blasting, plasma, laser, vibration and compressed air processes. Other areas include the control, monitoring and inspection of cleaning, rinsing and drying processes and the degree of cleanliness achieved.
Innovative solutions are also being developed in the segments of cleaning automation, including parts handling, developments for the intelligent integration of cleaning processes into connected manufacturing environments and Cloud solutions. In addition, the focus will be on cleanliness compliant manufacturing environments, such as cleanrooms.
