Tube Innovation Days: trade fair a tremendous success

The RSA showroom in Kunshan near Shanghai was the venue for Chinese customers and interested parties to congregate on 15 and 16 April 2015 for the first time to find out more about the entire process chain of tube manufacturing and processing at one event.

A total of nine partners from the field of tube manufacturing and processing attended the event in China: Dreistern, TRUMPF, Sema, FOERSTER, WAFIOS, RSA, Scheffer, Fehr and Kluthe all helped to make the Tube Innovation Days a tremendous success.

Almost 200 visitors from Asia expressed their interest in the offer in Kunshan on these two days. This high level of interest was the clear confirmation that individual consultations, along with industry-specific talks and the possibility of visiting a production plant, are just the right concept for this highly specialized market. A total of 80 participants seized this opportunity to visit the TRUMPF production facilities in Taicang.

Henning Mutschler of TRUMPF, Thomas Berg of RSA and all the participants were extremely satisfied with the results. "The concept of staging a trade fair together with companies from the field of tube manufacturing and processing and tailoring it to a local market was a huge success. There are already many interesting projects in the pipeline. That is why the Tube Innovation Days will take place in China again next year."

Due to the excellent response, the event will also be extended to other important markets. The 2nd Tube Innovation Days will take place in November of this year in Chicago, USA. The USA has always been an important market for the steel tube industry, which has now made an excellent recovery after some difficulties in recent years. Industry experts are expecting a high level of demand in the coming years.

The innovative offers of these nine partners are ideal for the American market, which has very high expectations with regard to the quality of manufacture and processing. With customized complete packages from a single source, these customers have the perfect solution to these high expectations in the Tube Innovation Days.
