Information about the next IPS

The continuing difficult situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic has already prevented us from holding the IPS last time. Due to the continued restricted travel activities as well as various changes and renovations at the Lörrach site, the exhibition cannot be implemented as usual and to its full extent.

Due to this, we regret to inform that after long deliberations we had to decide against an IPS 2023.

We remain aware of the importance and scope of our in-house exhibition. Should the next IPS take place again, you will be informed about it here, or also under our news on our website https://www.kaltenbach.com/en/

KALTENBACH thanks you very much for your interest and we look forward to welcoming you again at the next International Partners-in-Steel!

IPS 2019 - The Movie

Watch live demonstrations of the latest manufacturing technology


The International Partners in Steel Fair (IPS) is an overall event: Watch live demonstrations of the latest manufacturing technology, expand your knowledge with practice-oriented talks, take part in exclusive guided tours to learn about best practice. In this forward-looking sector, tomorrow‘s technologies and trends take centre stage. So at this year‘s event we will also be making space and time for sharing ideas and experiences. And not forgetting our fascinating program of fringe events, where successful, sustainable networks are created and developed at every IPS.

IPS is the market place for steel experts and presents an attractive support program enabling visitors the opportunity to network successfully:

  • Sheet metal, pipe, profile processing 
  • Handling, intra logistics
  • Separating, cutting
  • Surface treatment of metal sheets and profiles
  • Connect, welding, fastening
  • Forming
  • Tools
