Due to industrial structural change, various megatrends and the energy transition, the tasks and requirements in industrial parts and surface cleaning are also changing rapidly. The 20th Parts2clean takes this development into account with an expanded range of solutions and the new highlight topic “High Purity”. The anniversary edition of the leading international trade fair for industrial parts and surface cleaning will be held from September 26 to 28 at the Stuttgart Exhibition Center.
As the most important international meeting place for industrial parts and surface cleaning, Parts2clean reflects the requirements of the various user industries and offers a globally unique portfolio of solutions. This will become even clearer at this year’s anniversary event with an expanded range of products and services and the new claim “Cleaning redefined”.
“In addition to the familiar core areas of industrial parts cleaning, we are thus also covering new and changing tasks arising, for example, from the mobility and energy turnaround, the trends of automation, digitalization and AI, sustainability, and, in some sectors, stricter regulatory requirements,” adds Hendrik Engelking, Global Director at Deutsche Messe AG. “For example, cleaning solutions for electronics manufacturing, e-mobility, sensor technology, optical industry, medical and pharmaceutical technology will play a greater role.” The energy efficiency of cleaning systems and processes is another area that the upcoming Parts2clean will address.
High Purity – more than cleaning
For the first time in the twenty-year history of Parts2clean, this year’s edition will feature a highlight theme, “High Purity”. “The focus here is on tasks that have to be solved, among other things, for complex mechanical components for the semiconductor supply industry, in the precision optics and optoelectronics industry, thin-film technology, medical technology, and vacuum technology components for the UHV, XHV, and UCV sectors,” Hendrik Engelking specifies.
The extremely stringent requirements for fine particle, film chemical, organic and inorganic purity demanded in these areas can only be met if the entire process chain is included in the consideration. Of course, the cleaning system also plays an important role here, but factors such as the cleanliness of the pre-processes, production materials and media, handling influences and ambient conditions, for example an adapted cleanroom, are equally decisive for stably achievable results. It is also important to avoid re-contamination and cross-contamination.
Future-proof solutions for current and new requirements
“With its expanded range of solutions, as well as the highlight topic of High Purity, parts2clean continues to gain in attractiveness as the world’s most important trade show for industrial parts and surface cleaning,” states Hendrik Engelking. And this also applies to industry sectors that may not have felt addressed before. This is because the cross-sector and cross-material offering also enables companies to find out about cleaning applications and solutions in sectors in which they have not previously been active.
In addition, users from all manufacturing sectors as well as from remanufacturing and recycling will find future-proof solutions to meet current and new requirements in a stable and efficient manner.
Knowledge transfer included – bilingual expert forum
The bilingual expert forum also makes a valuable contribution to this. The simultaneously translated (German <> English) Lectures by renowned speakers from science, research and industry address current tasks and developments from various industrial sectors. “Parts2clean thus offers national and international visitors one of the most sought-after sources of knowledge for finding out about trends, innovations, benchmark applications and field reports,” says Hendrik Engelking. Organized jointly with the Fraunhofer Cleaning Business Unit and the Industrial Parts Cleaning Association (FiT), the knowledge meeting point is integrated into the leading trade show and participation is free of charge for visitors and exhibitors.
