New deals and profitable contracts – this is TOOLEX 2010 in a nutshell. The third edition of the Machine Tools, Tools and Processing Technology Fair TOOLEX took place from 29th September to 1st October in Sosnowiec.
Expo Silesia Exhibition Centre was visited by over 6 thousand people, 95% of whom were professionals and industry experts. Most of them came to Sosnowiec to see the most recent achievements of machine tools and tools producers, technological innovators, as well as processing equipment and CAM/CAD systems and CNC machining software. And they surely found what they were looking for at the 167 exhibition stands, which showcased over 350 companies from all over the world - Austria, Belarus, Brazil, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, India, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey and the USA. In the exhibition area of over 4 thousand square metres our Exhibitors presented 181 metal processing machine tools at work, which overall weighed 470 tons.
As befits Poland’s leading processing industry fair, it was at TOOLEX 2010 that the world premiere of the ED wire-cutting machine CUT 200 by GF AgieCharmilles took place. As regards original solutions presented for the first time on the Polish market, we should mention EDECAM and RADAN software by Nicom, and TENDO E Hydraulic Toolholder by SCHUNK Intec.
The best products presented at the Fair were awarded Expo Silesia medals. The winners were: ISCAR POLAND Sp. z o.o. for the original tool HELITURN LAYDOWN, SANDVIK POLSKA Sp. z o.o. for the original family of tools – the COROMILL 490 mill tools, and POLMO GNIEZNO Sp. z o.o. for the original technological solution for the reduction of force used in screwing and unscrewing screws.

ISCAR POLAND and High Technology Machines were awarded medals for the most interesting presentation form. Honorary mentions in this category were given to AgieCharmilles, FANUC Robotics and FANUC CNC as well as SCHUNK Intec.
Even though the next edition of TOOLEX is only scheduled for autumn 2011, the majority of the best exhibition stands have already been reserved by Exhibitors. This is the best recommendation for the Fair organizers.
