Stuttgart International Exhibition Specialist Automotive Components & Automotive Supply – June 2015

Attendance at this exhibition was a joint venture between Advanex Europe and Advanex Japan. The exhibition, held in Stuttgart Germany, is for Global Tier 1, 2 and 3 Automotive Component Manufacturers. The event co-hosts Engine Expo and Automotive Interiors Expo. This is a global exhibition with exhibitors and visitors from all over the world, promoting components and modules for the automotive industry. We used the exhibition for the European launch of the LockOne fastener which received a lot of interest. Click here for further details of LockOne.

Visitors were also keen to learn more about the advance technology of the Advanex Insert Collars, a key component for the Automotive industry’s change to lightweight plastic moulded assemblies. The Collars provide a reliable and durable fixing for many variants of electronic sensors in ABS, Fuel Control, Thermostat and Cruise Control systems. Visitors were keen to hear how the Advanex unique concept provides a stronger bonding to the parent plastic material and using a forming method the Collars can achieve tighter tolerances than many of the current ranges in the market.

Our CoilThread Tanged and Tangless threaded inserts were also of great interest. Especially the quicker installation times achieved through Tangless products.

Although the exhibition attendance overall was slightly quieter than anticipated it provided a great opportunity to network with other suppliers at the exhibition.
