Among them were a new-generation solid-state laser, an innovative tubular laser, and wire electro-erosion machines for the metalworking. Parts of the exposition were also a two-spindle turning and milling center and high-tech lathes with robotic pallet stations. The demonstrated lathes and CNC machines impressed the guests not only with their size, but also with their technological capabilities and flexibility in the production process.
Various 3D printers specialized in creating fine details and applicable in education, jewelry making, dental medicine and other fields were also showcased at the exhibition. The companies presented a variety of metal parts and end-use units, functional prototypes and spare parts as well.
The organizers reported that more than 5600 visitors attended the event. Among them were students from the Technology School Electronic Systems (TUES), associated with the Technical University-Sofia, who had the opportunity to watch in action the software of large machines for casting fine parts. The students were also introduced to the applications of modern robots designed for the needs of different industries.
The next edition of the international trade fair will take place between 6th and 9th of April, 2020.
