GrindTec 2014 Augsburg


What is GrindTec?

GrindTec is the leading global exhibition for grinding technologies. Located in Augsburg, Germany, the event has been running biannually since 1998, growing in size and attendance year-on-year. With over 37,000 square metres of exhibition space spanning over 5 floors – this year’s exhibition will be the biggest GrindTec event in history.

The theme of GrindTec 2014 is to provide solutions to the main challenges in the sector. Pressing issues will be addressed such as how to improve efficiency through performing numerous manufacturing processes on one machine and how manufacturers can cope with smaller production batches whilst keeping production economically viable.

This year, over 515 companies from 29 countries will be exhibiting at the event, showcasing the latest developments and innovations in grinding machines and tool machining systems. In addition, GrindTec 2014 will see a number of research institutions as well as vocational and educational institutes attending the event.
