About the event
Industrial Spring – a class of its own
This year's Industrial Spring's recapitulation may of course include the words "record", "biggest", or "absolute hit". However, people who have not visited the Targi Kielce's industrial cycle may consider it PR tricks. Nothing further from the truth! The 2023's STOM expos were absolutely sensational, and not only facts and figures prove it.
Although, of course, the expo data is undoubtedly impressive - all the expo halls of the Kielce exhibition and congress centre were a full house. Targi Kielce hosted almost 600 exhibitors and 19,000 visitors. And on top of that - everyone who had visited the STOM in previous years unanimously claimed that there have never been so many machines working in Targi Kielce before. It is also worth remembering that since 2015, the exhibition space has grown by 20% each year, this trend was shaken in the pandemic years. Yet even in turbulent times, the STOM cycle was held. 2023 is a return to the upward trend - not only is the "Industrial Spring" more significant than that which was pronounced the record-breaking one – 2019. Also it has been the largest in its history.
One may feel delighted when reading numbers and data sheets, yet there is one important point to be noted It is not the number of visitors that is pivotal. The quality of contacts established at the expo and the value of contracts resulting from taking shop are the most important. The meetings were extremely satisfying - this opinion was unanimously shared by almost all exhibitors.
Since 2015, i.e. from the very beginning, we have been participating in the Kielce 3D Printing Days. We come here because many customers of our customers are also attending. This year's expo is the apparent revival; there are more visitors who have joined the show after the pandemic. We are happy and we will come back next year as well - Filip Ludwikowski, UBOT, Chief Technology Officer at UBOT recapitulated the participation in the Industrial Spring.
Metrology knowledge pool
The second day of the Industrial Spring, Targi Kielce hosted another in the series of metrology seminars devoted to the enhancement of cooperation between science and business. The Science in business - commercialisation of research results Jerzy Józwik - director of the office of the Polish Metrological Union in Lublin, opened the event and discussed characteristics of the universal metrological inventory, i.e. a list of essential scientific and research equipment. Jacek Semaniak - President of the Central Office of Measures, Chairman of the Presidium of the Polish Metrological Union, welcomed the guests and discussed the main activities related to the expansion of the Świętokrzyski Laboratory Campus of the Central Office of Measures and its impact on the development of Polish metrology:
- We undertake numerous activities to create a positive climate around metrology, the creation of the Polish Metrological Union, the launch of the program of the Minister of Education and Science under the name "Polish Metrology" and the creation of the Metrological Cluster serve this purpose. Functionalities development of the Central Office of Measures and bringing them closer to the functionalities of universities is our goal - thus we will create new research areas - stressed President Jacek Semaniak
The 3D Printing Days celebrated their 15th anniversary this year, the enjoyed great media interest. The presentation of 3D printing, which use concrete, certainly deserved the attention of the radio or television crews; 3Dartech from Kielce uses the innovative technique. As reported by Karol Jankowicz, a representative of the company, production mainly focuses on prefabricated elements and street furniture elements. – Our company does not focus on printed buildings, but of course, such prefabricated elements can be used to build a substantial structure. We can also build public utility buildings designed for representative functions in the city. We have a printer built for this purpose, equipped with a special head. Also our concrete mix has been designed for 3D printing. When it comes to street furniture, I see no reason why an ordinary Smith could buy a printed garden set – he emphasises. For example, a standing vase costs PLN 300, and a garden armchair PLN 600.
