Control – Leading International Trade Fair in May 2020 Driving Force in Quality Assurance

As the world’s most important technical event for issues covering all aspects of industrial QA, the 34th Control international trade fair for quality assurance invites visitors to Stuttgart from the 5th to the 8th of May, 2020. “This is the place to be,” stressed participants at Control 2019 which was once again distinguished by nearly 900 exhibitors as an outstanding business platform for vision technology, image processing and sensor technology, as well as measuring and test technology.


Control 2020 – Next Level Quality Assurance!

“Outstanding each and every year, again and again!” Statements issued by participants in 2019 underscore the importance of Control as an internationally recognised, globally leading technology, communication and business platform for all aspects of quality assurance in industrial production. The international market leaders meet here to discuss the extremely significant issue of zero-defects production with well-informed, highly interested visitors from actual industry practice, and to develop new solutions. 90% of the expert visitors are directly involved in procurement decisions. Control supports a direct exchange of technical information amongst suppliers and users, and assures the transfer of technology all the way down to the depths of routine daily production.


Consistently Digitalised QA Solutions

Increasing levels of automation and integrated networking amongst industrial production systems are currently driving the QA market, which is undergoing continuous transformation as a result. Control breaks down the complex issue of digitalisation to the applications level and makes closed-loop data exchange in networked process sequences possible for users of modern test technology. Manufacturers and distributors of QA products and solutions offer interface-compatible modules, subsystems and complete installations for the automation and digitalisation of all production processes. Control’s up-to-the-minute service offerings open up new approaches and comprehensive, genuine solutions to users for all problems associated with industrial quality assurance.


International Meeting Place for Industrial Image Processing

The evolution of QA topics is made plainly apparent by strong growth in the industrial image processing and vision systems sector. Alone in response to this issue, more than 250 Control exhibitors presented suitable components, modules, subsystems and complete solutions in 2019, and portrayed current worldwide offerings for industrial image processing, vision, camera and sensor systems. Image processing, involving routine daily industrial practice as well intra-logistics and autonomous vehicles for freight forwarding and passenger traffic, substantiates the need and the necessity for the implementation of modern quality assurance with future-oriented industrial image processing systems. To an ever greater extent, industrial image processing and vision systems are replacing conventional measuring and test equipment, and are establishing themselves as key technologies for automation. For numerous exhibiting companies, Control is the most important trade fair of the year and an indispensable QA business platform. And this will be the case again in 2020. With roughly a third of the exhibitors coming from outside of Germany, it’s clear that Control also enjoys an outstanding international reputation. The industry sector is waiting for the next QA event in Stuttgart: “Next Level Quality Assurance!” from 5 to 8 May 2020.
