Exhibitors' Opinions of CUTTING WOLRD 2023

We are proud to be a Gold Sponsor of CUTTING WORLD. With over 50 years of experience, we have the right solutions for any type of project - big or small. Interaction, multi-processing, automation and quality are reflected in our rigid plate processing machines. The Voortman V310 plate workhorse enables you to mill, drill and bevel cut any product without limitations. All with just one push of a button! Next-level software features automate your plate production and provide lots of feedback. The ease of use, simplified process knowledge and interactivity really sets us apart. Our software knows exactly which process is best to use to save time and costs. No process knowledge or programming needed; the machine makes all smart choices. Unmanned production is also made more accessible. Simply cluster jobs, buffer multiple plates and activate the Unmanned Mode to bypass manual interventions for longer periods. We are more than happy to talk with you about your business goals, challenges and suitable solutions at CUTTING WORLD!
Guido Heilen, Area Sales Manager Germany, Voortman Steel Machinery
As one of the world's leading manufacturers of systems for the oxyfuel and plasma cutting processes, CUTTING WORLD is an important platform for ESAB. This is why we will be participating in the trade fair as a Silver Sponsor in 2023, thus demonstrating our presence even more clearly. We are also looking forward to sharing our knowledge with trade visitors with our ESAB specialists in two presentations at the Cutting Congress. More than ever, highly specialised events like CUTTING WORLD are of outstanding importance for companies to strengthen their own network and expand business contacts in a targeted manner.
Jög Maas, Sales Manager mechanized Cutting Europe | Esab Welding & Cutting:
Anyone who wants to master the current and future challenges, such as the shortage of skilled workers, the energy transition and competitiveness, needs digital processes and innovative sheet metal processing. At CUTTING WORLD, we offer these solutions from a single source: Our digitalisation solutions network machines and systems and thus provide information in real time. We will show you how the digitalisation of your production makes you more productive, more cost-effective and faster in decision-making across the entire value chain. Sheet metal processing also requires increasingly complex cutting solutions and combined processes, such as in laser cutting: Whether rapidly increasing laser powers, different beam shapes or even new cutting gases - today's laser machines must be able to follow this trend. In view of the increasing shortage of skilled workers, automated processes are also of crucial importance. We look forward to talking to you about the challenges facing the metalworking industry and our reliable solutions with added value for our customers.
Jörg Mosser, CEO Europe Messer Cutting Systems
We are coming to CUTTING WORLD this year with great anticipation. As a technically leading manufacturer of professional cutting systems, this trade fair addresses exactly our core competences. With our technologically first-class plasma, oxyfuel and laser cutting machines, our customers can process round and polygonal tubes as well as sheet metal in all thicknesses. We provide our customers with everything from one source: machine, extraction, cutting table... we deliver the complete package - this of course also includes professional programming software tailored to the needs of our customers. But ZINSER goes one step further: we also enable drilling, countersinking, milling and threading, which saves our customers a lot of time and investment as all machining operations can be performed on one system. We are very much looking forward to discussing these and many other topics with the trade audience at CUTTING WORLD 2023, as well as to interesting conversations and exchanges.
Ulrich Bock, CEO ZINSER GmbH
The right process gases are what make cutting perfect. Therefore, CUTTING WORLD is the optimal stage for Air Liquide to present our high bandwidth in this important segment. From oxyfuel to plasma and laser cutting, we have the process gases in our portfolio that make the cutting process even more productive and economical, as well as delivering a high-quality result. We look forward to exchanging ideas with the industry at CUTTING WORLD at Messe Essen.
Norbert Semsch, IM Offer Deployer Central Europe, Air Liquide Germany
The concept of CUTTING WORLD has more than convinced us. Because it is important for us to meet exactly our target group. We want to convince and inspire the experts on site at Messe Essen with our services and products. Therefore, visitors to the Boschert stand can look forward to a real highlight: we will bring and demonstrate our FiberLaser. This lasercutter is very flexible, easily accessible and particularly efficient thanks to its high residual sheet recycling.
Michael Roser, Head of Sales, Boschert GmbH & Co. KG
It's in your hand: waterjet cutting is one of the most flexible techniques of all. Whether 60 mm steel or 0.2 mm thin bronze foil - waterjet cutting makes the most filigree components from any material possible. And without mechanical or thermal alteration of the material. I'm looking forward to informing trade visitors to CUTTING WORLD about the advantages of this process and to getting them just as excited about waterjet cutting.
The combination of cutting congress and exhibition makes CUTTING WORLD so attractive for us, as an equipment supplier for the cutting industry. Our main focus is on the automation of the oxyfuel cutting process. CUTTING WORLD offers the right mix of trade visitors here.
Kurt Nachbargauer, Managing director IHT Automation
With our solutions we are shaping the future of the cutting industry and we are pleased to present these innovations at CUTTING WORLD. As a specialist for automation solutions in the cutting and separating industry, our ProCom Automation experts have been developing high-tech control processes adapted to the drive technology of globally renowned manufacturers for over 40 years. Whether knife, laser, waterjet, plasma or foam contour cutting - our products offer the decisive added value and equip companies IIoT. At CUTTING WORLD, we will be happy to give you an impression of the numerous possibilities and areas of application.
Bernd Göttgens, Managing Director ProCom Automation:
In steel construction and heavy mechanical engineering, high-precision drilling in heavy plate parts up to 130 mm thick is required. With the KRONOS and GEMINI series, Ficep has developed extremely stable drilling/boring combinations that can fully utilize the high drilling performance of modern carbide drills with feed rates of up to 600 mm/minute. The GEMINI series can also perform milling operations in high-strength steels such as HARDOX, for example to produce wear plates for the bulk materials industry. We would be happy to talk to you at CUTTING WORLD about your application.
Tomas Golz, Managing Partner GmbH
We invite all trade visitors to CUTTING WORLD to take another step with us and our partners towards the digitalization of tomorrow's networked production. At our booth we will inform about current optimization solutions in the sheet metal cutting industry and about machine-independent software solutions that secure the future as well as sustainability of the systems and thus contribute to the competitiveness of our customers.
Christoph Weber, Advisory board Expercut
We are breaking new ground at 247TailorSteel. With our intelligent online software Sophia®, we noticeably relieve companies and offer real added value.
