NXT BIG THING.
Schuster Maschinenbau GmbH at the MSV Brno and MachTech Sofia trade fairs.
In October 2023, we attended two industrial trade fairs in Eastern Europe: the International Engineering Fair in Brno, Czech Republic and the MachTech & InnoTech Expo in Sofia, Bulgaria. At the trade fairs, we impressed visitors with the Schuster NXT series and absorbed trends and developments in metal processing and mechanical engineering.
Two trade fairs, one language: The love of technology.
MSV Brno is an international trade fair for mechanical and electrical engineering, with a focus on machining and forming. The topics of the fair: Industry 4.0, Digital Factory, digitalization in production, circular economy and the management of material resources. Exhibitors from various technology sectors presented new products and services. For example, materials and components for industrial machinery, electronics, automation, measurement technology, sensors, measuring devices and robotics. On the program? Conferences, seminars and workshops on current technical, commercial and economic topics.
MachTech & InnoTech Expo is an international trade fair for machinery, technologies and industrial equipment that takes place once a year in Bulgaria. International exhibitors present the latest products, machines and technologies from the fields of mechanical engineering, metalworking, surface technology, laser technology, welding technology, hydraulics, pneumatics and tools. InnoTech focuses on automation technology, robotics, electronics, electromobility and electrical appliances.
The fair stand: Reduced to innovation.
We exhibited our Schuster NXT range at the trade fair stand of our partner Galika. The stand was plain white, tidy, serious - and prominently positioned. All roads led to Schuster NXT. Galika was the only sales representative in Brno with pick-up solutions (NXT), multi-spindle machines (Index) and sanding machines (Studer) in its portfolio.
The NXT. Pioneer of a new era.
The Schuster NXT machine attracted a lot of interest. We were able to answer questions directly at the machine, demonstrate the machine live and show all the details: the structure of the machine, the peripherals such as the control cabinet or fluid technology, the good accessibility of the machine for maintenance work. With the NXT, Schuster enables automated vertical turning for individual series production, in which you benefit from all the advantages of a pick-up turning machine.
Engineering new business.
Schuster is still relatively unknown in Eastern Europe. It was therefore important for us to be there. Our presence at the trade fair opens up new opportunities for us and others: Products, partnerships, friendships. We were able to hold over 60 talks. And we have already started working on our first offers. We are looking forward to all further discussions and to our business trips to our new customers in the Czech Republic and Bulgaria.
The market in Eastern Europe is looking to the future with confidence. The demand for systems with greater flexibility is increasing.
Many companies are also expecting growth in the defense sector. Former customers require maintenance and retrofitting. Future customers are looking for new solutions that meet the requirements of the times and shift the standard once again - in one direction: forwards.
