Under the motto ‘Grob - Keeping up with the times’, the five-day digital event will showcase solutions and products from the fields of machining and electromobility, as well as addressing topics from Industry 4.0, and its Service and Human Resources Management divisions. The platform will offer a wide range of opportunities for networking and interaction with Grob engineers, experts and developers.
Encouraged by the great success of its first virtual in-house exhibition, and due to the current difficult circumstances caused by the pandemic, Grob will not be holding a traditional in-house exhibition this year either, but will be appearing on a virtual platform for a five-day duration.
The family-owned company presents the most important technologies and innovations from the world of machining as well as electromobility. The areas of Industry 4.0, service, and Grob as an employer will also be addressed. With the second virtual in-house exhibition, visitors are given the opportunity to gain an overview of Grob products and technologies. Furthermore, they will be able to interact with a wide range of experts from a wide variety of fields in machining and electromobility to exchange views on the latest technology developments.
With this second Virtual Open House, the format of digital communication has been developed and optimised. With the look of an ‘in person’ trade fair, Grob will not only present a ‘Machining’ showroom, but an ‘Electromobility’ showroom too.
The focus of the machine tools is the new 4-axis machine series G440, G640 and G840, a new type of cost-optimised and robust production machine available on the market. In addition, visitors can discover the benefits of the complete range of Grob machining, from the small G150 to the large G750. And automation solutions, from the pallet changer to the Grob GRC robot cell, will also be presented. The e-mobility showroom presents visitors with a complete range of services, from electric motors and electric machines to battery technologies and fuel cells.
Web seminars will also be held throughout the trade exhibition, focusing on the new 4-axis machine series, automation topics, electromobility, Grob-Net4Industry and Grob's after sales service. They show the entire range of Grob products, from machines to services. A new feature is the ‘Grob as an employer’ category, which focuses in particular on the training offered at Grob. In order to expand the target groups and the respective topic focus, 42 industry partners were invited as co-exhibitors to this new edition of the Virtual Open House.
"Corona has negated the possibility of acquiring new customers to a large extent," said Grob sales director, Christian Müller. "Tradeshows and conferences are cancelled. This makes digital tools all the more important for presenting new technologies.”
