Parts2clean 2022 will feature future-proof industrial parts cleaning solutions
August 4, 2022 11:18 am
The 19th parts2clean international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning will be running from 11 to 13 October at Stuttgart Exhibition Center, Germany.
The whole scale realignment of industrial sectors, plus the need for resilient supply chains and increased demand for improved sustainability are the driving forces for major changes in industrial partsand surface cleaning. How these challenges can be mastered will be the focus at parts2clean 2022 – the leading international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning, running from 11 to 13 October at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center, 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 like digitization and AI, as well as stricter regulatory requirements and climate protection objectives. “parts2clean addresses all these challenges,” explains Hendrik Engelking, Global Director at Deutsche Messe. “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.”
Cross-sector solutions and a wide variety of materials
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. “parts2clean offers an ideal basis for the design of future-proof component cleaning adapted to the respective requirements,” comments Engelking.
Electromobility and the energy transition, changes in manufacturing and coating technologies, new materials and material combinations and the digitization of manufacturing are just a few of the trends requiring new and adapted processes in parts and surface cleaning. Apart from particulate contaminants, an increasingly important aspect involves filmic organic, inorganic and, in some cases, biological contaminants in the fight to meet cleanliness specifications. “The exhibitor showcases at this year’s parts2clean will offer solutions in all areas of industrial cleaning technology to meet these new requirements in a leading-edge context,” reports Hendrik Engelking, Global Director at Deutsche Messe. “For example, developments for the removal of fine-particle and filmic-chemical contaminants will be presented, as well as solutions for improved energy and resource efficiency, greater cost-effectiveness and flexibility.” The leading international trade fair for parts and surface cleaning runs from 11–13 October 2022 at the Stuttgart (Germany) Exhibition Center.
Attractive supporting program adds value to the event
But it’s not only the cross-industry, cross-technology and cross-materials exhibition portfolio which make a visit to parts2clean 2022 a must for cleaning technology users from all industries. The supporting program’s side events offer knowledge and expertise as well as solution approaches for process adaptation and optimization in a condensed form which cannot be found anywhere else.
Holistic view of component cleanliness along the process chain
Pre-defined cleanliness requirements can be met stably and efficiently by taking a holistic view of the process chain. This includes – as a result of increasingly stiff requirements for component cleanliness – environmental conditions as well. The special show titled “Component Cleanliness – a Holistic View of the Process Chain,” organized jointly with the Cleaning Excellence Center (CEC), provides visitors with a better grasp of the road to clean components. This begins with the pretreatment of workpieces and extends from cleaning – including selection of the appropriate process chemistry – to the cleaning of containers and workpiece carriers, to professional monitoring of the achieved cleanliness with laboratory equipment and cleanliness compliant packaging in a cleanroom. Specialists in technical cleanliness will guide visitors through this special show on all three days of the trade fair.
Specialist forum highlights knowledge transfer – from the basics to broad trends
With traditional attendance of more than 1,300 participants on-site and many more users worldwide via live streaming, the three-day parts2clean specialist forum is one of the key attractions at the show. “The high quality of information and presentations here have made this forum one of the most sought-after sources of knowledge in the field of parts and surface cleaning for domestic and international visitors,” reports Engelking. Well-known experts from science and research as well as from industry associations and industry itself will offer their knowledge and expertise as well as benchmark solutions in simultaneously translated (German <> English) lectures on the following topics: Basics of industrial cleaning processes, digitization, automation and process monitoring as well as challenges due to filmic contamination. The presentation clusters focusing on challenges in electromobility and the energy industries as well as precision cleaning for extreme requirements, for example production equipment for DUV and EUV lithography, will spotlight a number of hot topics. If it is a question of proving the technical cleanliness achieved, the papers in the Analytics, Technical Cleanliness, Rules and Regulations section will provide detailed information, while the “Environmental Relevance and Circular Economy” session will focus on solutions for media preparation, substitution of critical or banned substances, and energy and resource savings, among other topics.
The complete program of the specialist forum is scheduled for release in midSeptember on the parts2clean homepage under the menu item “Side Events”. Participation in the parts2clean technical forum is free of charge for tradeshow attendees. In addition, the presentations will be broadcast live on the parts2clean event website, www.parts2clean.de.
Added value: Knowledge transfer at bilingual forum
The simultaneously translated presentations by well-known speakers from science, research and industry at the parts2clean three-day specialist forum will provide additional value for the event. “In this way, parts2clean offers national and international visitors one of the most sought-after sources of expertise and valuable information on trends, innovations, benchmark applications and reports from the field,” says Engelking.
This networking hub for industry know-how – organized jointly with the Fraunhofer Cleaning Business Unit and the German Industrial Parts Cleaning Association (FiT) – is integrated into the flagship show, and participation is free of charge for visitors and exhibitors. In addition, the presentations this year will once again be streamed live on the event website.
