GrindingHub is the new international centre for grinding technology and superfinishing. The trade fair’s focus is on all aspects of value creation in this technology area.  Centre stage is taken by grinding machines, tool grinding machines and abrasives. All of the relevant software tools, the process periphery, and the measuring and testing equipment needed for QM processes relating to grinding are presented, keeping the entire production environment of grinding technology in view.

The internationally oriented trade fair starts with a hybrid concept. Accompanying the event and also between events, GrindingHub offers digital formats for match making, web seminars, conferences as well as the communication of current trends and innovations across all channels.
