EuroBLECH is the world's largest trade show for the sheet metal forming industry and attracts around 60,000 visitors to Hanover every two years. SIMPAC Europe GmbH, founded as a subsidiary of SIMPAC, Inc. in 2017, exhibited at EuroBLECH for the first time in Hall 27 | Stand F 173. The new international team presented itself as a competent partner of sheet metal forming technology and services while also exemplifying the brand's message: "FOR YOU. RIGHT NOW."

The highlight of SIMPAC's stand was the new servo press generation, the MX/SX Series. The stamping and forming systems with servo drive combines German engineering with Korean efficiency, SIMPAC's signature price | performance ratio. With the available press capacity range of 340 to 3,375 US tons, the new series covers a vast array of parts. The freely programmable slide movements enable increased output in pendulum stroke operation and optimal adaptation of the forming process. The new press generation has optimized drive dynamics, new components from esteemed German manufacturers, and an improved stiffness of the press body.

In addition to an overview of SIMPAC's wide product range, visitors gained insight to current development topics and projects being worked on at our R&D centers in Germany and Korea. Even the catering epitomized global partnership with its creative fusion of culinary specialties from both parts of the world.
