MicroStep successfully presented itself at EuroBlech with an immense variety of technologies. After a three-year absence from the trade show, the “Partner of Cutting and Automation” showed a unique range of technologies at the largest trade show appearance in the company’s history. This was very well received by the visitors: 2D and 3D cutting systems in plasma, laser, waterjet and oxyfuel were just as much in demand as the latest digitizing solutions or the pressbrake technology from MicroStep Industry, which was presented for the first time.
“A successful trade show appearance after the break – our strategy to show visitors exactly which solutions fit their profile with our broad product portfolio has fully proven itself,” stated Johannes Ried, Managing Director of MicroStep Europa GmbH.
Unique was the buzzword heard most often throughout MicroStep’s trade show presence. 2D cutting, bevel processing with oxyfuel, plasma, laser and waterjet, systems for scanning and marking, for sheet metal, tube, profile and container bottom processing.
The highly interested visitors were able to get a first-hand impression of all the topics. Whether small entry-level systems or complex multifunctional wonders; whether the industry pioneer in terms of flexibility and process reliability, the MG plasma oxyfuel cutting system, or the new pressbrake systems from MicroStep Industry. “Even though the volume of visitors was lower compared to EuroBlech 2018, the demand was of a higher quality as a result. From the managing director to the workshop manager, everyone was enthusiastic about the range of solutions we presented.
In just a few meters, they experienced how modern systems can enrich their production,” said Johannes Ried. “A successful trade show appearance after the break – our strategy to show visitors exactly which solutions fit their profile with our broad product portfolio has fully proven itself,” says the managing director of MicroStep Europa GmbH. This constellation can also be experienced in a 1:1 consultation in the two training and demonstration centers in Bavaria and NRW as well.
MicroStep had a total of five cutting systems in its luggage: the multifunctional MG including plasma rotator and oxyfuel rotator for 3D processing of sheet metal, tubes, profiles and container bases, the 3D laser cutting system MSF Pro, the new 3D waterjet cutting system WaterCut as well as the space-saving 2D laser solution MSF Compact and its plasma counterpart the MasterCut Compact.
Within a few steps, experience islands were created around the double-decker stand, where German-speaking and also international visitors were given intensive and technology-independent advice. An eye-catcher was the cutting pattern of a container base with a diameter of 2,000 mm and different chamfer geometries, holes and free contours, which was cut on the DRM series, as well as a machined milled and drilled part cut with the DRM Max.
“The great interest across all our presented technologies confirms our fundamental strategy in the field of research and development: merging state-of-the-art digital solutions with increasingly versatile systems across all cutting processes for energy-saving and efficient production, where users do not have to make any compromises in terms of quality and process reliability,” said Igor Mikulina, Managing Director of MicroStep Europe and President of the Board of Trustees of the IndustryFusion Foundation. The latter presented itself for the first time at EuroBlech with a joint stand with a total of seven members and IT partners Intel and Suse. The first cross-manufacturer open-source networking solution IndustryFusion, which makes smart products, smart factories and smart services a reality, was presented.
