The TRUMPF Laser- und Systemtechnik GmbH in Ditzingen was the host of the Tube Innovation Days – trade fair on tubes – on January 20th and 21st, 2016, which took place for the first time in Germany after China and the US. With 250 participants from around the world, a record participation was recorded. They were able to learn in connection with a “market place” at the stands of now thirteen partner companies about the wide range of services to all processes of manufacturing, processing and machining, measurement and testing technology as well as logistics of the tubes. In addition, there was the opportunity to visit high informative specialist lectures, take part in a TRUMPF factory tour and establish contacts at an evening event and maintain the exchange of views.

The thirteen top technology partners of the Tube Innovation Days pro-vide their customers with a holistic contact for the entire process chain around tubes. This gives them customized and multidisciplinary solutions for the weld seam preparation, roll forming, laser machining, pickling, dressing, checking, inline measuring and monitoring, sawing, bending, measuring, transporting, warehouse logistics and lubricoolant from a single source. The partner com-panies bundle together an extensive knowledge grown over decades around the subject of tubes.
