TOOLEX - Business Success Tool!


The 9th edition of TOOLEX 2016 – the International Fair of Machine Tools, Tools and Processing Technology has just ended in the Expo Silesia Fair and Exhibition Centre in Sosnowiec. This year’s exposition, as previously, covered the area of two halls, i.e. 15 thousand sq. m.  The success of TOOLEX lies not only in the attractive offer of 500 exhibitors from 18 countries, representing nearly  600 of the world’s brands, but also in the programme of 10 lectures, seminars and consultations dedicated to the specialists. The trade fair was visited by almost 10 thousands of visitors - branch experts. During the exhibition we could watch 450 machines in operation. Here's the shortest summary of the most important metal processing industry fair in Poland that is growing to become a trendsetter!


Our exhibitors confirm that the TOOLEX fair is an excellent business success tool - this is where they conclude numerous transactions, establish new business relations and maintain their interactions with regular customers. The fair was a great occasion to present numerous new products and launches on the Polish market.


Just like in the previous years, the fair was accompanied by International Fair of Tools and Methods of Virtual Processing - WIRTOTECHNOLOGIA - and Trade Fair for Oils, Lubricants and Process Fluids in Industry - OILexpo that were held at the same time. Such a combination of different thematic profiles makes a perfect platform for exchange of information, experiences and opinions and gives you the opportunity to meet and attract customers in just one place and time.


Strong position of TOOLEX on the fair trade market is proven among others by the prestigious Honorary Patronage of the Ministry of Development as well as cooperation with a large group of notable Partners - institutions, universities and media - supporting the development of the fair and taking care of its content. Presentations of exhibitors are complemented with a rich programme of events including a seminar on laser technologies organised by the Institute of Advanced Production Engineering and a meeting devoted to oil-related issues arranged by the Silesian Branch of Polish Tribology Society and the Silesian University of Technology. During lectures and consultations, the representatives of Zakłady Badań i Atestacji “ZETOM” im. Prof. F. Stauba w Katowicach sp. z o.o. have also discussed the issues related to safety of machinery, conformity assessment systems - CE marking and rules for calibration of measuring instruments. A seminar on innovative monitoring methods, data collection and optimization of the machining parameters captured great attention of the participants that had an opportunity to get familiar with the creation of applications controlling the machining process and configure the monitoring system in line with the specification of own process.

During the formal gala on the first day of the fair we have awarded medals for the best products presented by the Exhibitors of this year's Fair and for the best form of presentation.
