The big international event of the year is just around the corner. Blechexpo 2023 will not be just another trade fair for the rolled steel industry. This is the European trade fair for sheet metal processing par excellence, taking place every two years in Stuttgart since its establishment in 1994. From then on, Arania has regularly taken part in this major European industrial event, considered the second most important trade fair in the world dedicated to sheet metal processing, only behind EuroBLECH, which will be held next year.
As a leading global industry event, Blechexpo has established itself as a must-attend event for many of the world’s leading steel manufacturers. Held simultaneously with the highly renowned Schweisstec, the international trade fair for joining technologies, Blechexpo is the only event in the world dedicated to these two complementary technologies: sheet metal processing and joining technology.

The Blechexpo 2023 and Schweisstec duality represents a unique trade event that brings together all players across the entire cycle of cold-forming sheet metal processing, as well as the related thermal processes and techniques for cutting, joining and welding. Only accessible to specialised attendees, this unique event attracts thousands of professionals and targets all experts in the production of sheet metal parts, rolling mills, rolled-steel lines, manufacturers, finishing experts, automotive suppliers, etc.
Arania will be in Stuttgart to showcase its innovative rolled steel products and solutions, but also to check out first-hand the latest autonomous solutions and systems for the manufacture of sheet metal parts, profiles and tubular parts, as well as associated heat and mechanical treatments, cutting technologies, processing machines, presses, stamping, bending and forming systems… But we said Blechexpo is a unique trade fair, and that includes a wide range of peripheral activities, including control systems and software, as well as solutions in the field of handling and quality control technology, machines, installations, peripheral equipment and other relevant techniques.
Attending the hundreds of conferences and presentations scheduled in the program will be difficult, there’s no doubt about it. However, as at every edition of Blechexpo, the Arania team chosen to visit Stuttgart is very enthusiastic and will multiply its efforts to get a close look at the latest developments in the industry, all gathered in the same place.
Moreover, Blechexpo offers not only an excellent business environment, but also the ideal backdrop for networking, getting in touch with industry colleagues, and forging closer ties with the different institutions involved in research, knowledge and careers. According to Georg Knauer, Head of Projects at the Blechexpo-Schweisstec dual trade fair, tens of thousands of visitors are expected, and all halls at Messe Stuttgart are fully booked. “Once again, the level of enthusiasm for this year’s editions is huge: most of the exhibitors rebooked immediately after the last event in 2021”, explains Knauer.
The Blechexpo-Schweisstec combo stands as a well-established platform in the world of autonomous solutions and systems for complete process lines, with an incredible range of live demonstrations: fully automated sheet metal processing machines, robotic solutions, control systems, software, new steel products… In short, everything needed to offer industry leaders like Arania the best possible support for their investment projects.
Looking ahead to this year’s agenda at Blechexpo’s, the main trends that will be highlighted involve the challenges currently facing the steel sector and the sheet metal working industry: energy efficiency, conservation of resources and cost-effectiveness. Thus, with the theme ‘Challenges in the steel markets in 2023’, this year’s Blechexpo Steel Convention will focus on climate protection issues, green transformation, decarbonisation and the development of steel production costs, with increasing emphasis on digitalisation and process optimisation.
In addition, a ‘futureSteel’ congress is scheduled, a forward-looking initiative for the steel industry focusing on the green steel topic. As pioneers of green steel in Southern Europe , the Arania team will be closely following this event. Furthermore and as usual, the Blechexpo-Schweisstec ‘best-Award 2023’ for outstanding innovation will be included in this world-class accompanying program.
Remember, from November 7th to 10th, the rolled steel industry travels to Germany. Arania and Europe’s leading industrial players will be in Stuttgart at Blechexpo 2023, the most important trade fair for the metal sheet sector.
