Cross-industry exchange of experts at the highest level

On October 25 and 26, 2023, SCHUNK will again host the Expert Days: an annual international and cross-industry event on the topic of "Robotic Material Removal." 70 specialists from Europe and North America will meet in Brackenheim-Hausen to exchange ideas on new trends such as AI and best practice examples and to network for future tasks.
SCHUNK – Expert Days on Robotic Material Removal With the Expert Days, SCHUNK has initiated an international network for robot-assisted machining. The central forum will take place in Brackenheim-Hausen on October 25 and 26.

The "SCHUNK Expert Days on Robotic Material Removal" is an international platform event for robot-assisted automation solutions for machining processes such as deburring, grinding, or polishing. In addition to smaller informal meetings at the edge of trade shows, the annual, two-day event in Brackenheim-Hausen is the central forum of the emerging specialist network.

SCHUNK – Expert Days presentation One important component of the Expert Days are the top-class talks, where the new trends are discussed along with their practical implementation.

Trend topics in real production

At this year's Expert Days, speakers from the USA and Canada will take part for the first time: The keynote speech will be given by Glen A. "Fritz" Carlson III, President and CEO of Acme Manufacturing in Michigan, one of the world's leading integrator for robot-based machining. Michael Muldoon, Director of Product Development at the Canadian robotics specialist AV&R, will talk about "machining of aviation components." But also well-known speakers will present and give detailed insights into current projects. One of them is Reinhold Stehle, Technical Sales Manager at SHL, a leading global manufacturer of robot systems for automated grinding and polishing of high-quality components.

Not only the tried and tested is presented, but also the latest trends and their practical implementation are in the focus. Sabina Kethelz, CCO at the Danish automation company Norbo Robotics, will talk about the AI-supported planning of robot paths In addition to exciting lectures, the participants also expect a trade exhibition and many opportunities for informal exchange and networking.

SCHUNK – Expert Days networking Here, experts can exchange their ideas. The joint focus on the future topic of robotic machining will create new ideas and partnerships.

A network for new challenges.

There is a trend towards greater automation in all major industries. An important reason for this is the lack of workforce. More and more small and medium-sized companies are taking steps towards automated solutions. Thereby they prefer simple and flexible solutions. This poses new challenges for users of robotics, system integrators, component manufacturers and consumables providers. Therefore, SCHUNK has initiated the Expert Days to create an international network for robot-assisted machining. Here, experts are to exchange ideas, learn from each other, and develop new business ideas and projects.

If you want to become a part of the expert network, you can secure a place at the SCHUNK Expert Days 2023 here:

The number of participants is limited to 70 people. Language of the event will be English.
