Dear business friends,


We would like to inform you about the changes for the year 2018. The PRAGUE INDUSTRIAL FAIRS will no longer be divided according to fields into the simultaneous trade fairs FOR INDUSTRY, FOR SURFACE, FOR ENERGO Smart, FOR LOGISTIC and FOR WELD, but will be grouped into a whole, which will roof all the previous themes under the name FOR INDUSTRY - International Industrial Fair.


This decision is focused on reinforcing the FOR INDUSTRY brand and at the same time is serves to make the content of the organized event more transparent and more effective. All the accompanying materials will be new in a uniform graphic design, which will help visitors to a much easier orientation.


This year, 233 exhibitors took part in this year's FOR INDUSTRY, FOR ENERGO Smart, FOR LOGISTIC, FOR SURFACE, FOR WELD, FOR INFOSYS and 3Dexpo fairs on a gross exhibition area of over 8,000 m2 and 7,612 professional visitors came there.


The fairs included a rich accompanying program, which took place during  the 4 trade fair days. It is worth mentioning  the Meeting of Leaders of Bohemian Export 2017, Dynamic Motorshow, and ENERGO SUMMIT.


Great thanks go to the exhibiting companies, which have created a great foundation for their presentation in the field of engineering technologies and related fields in the capital city of Prague.


Pictures from the event are available in the photogallery.

The Prague industrial trade fairs appreciated technical innovations

The company “STYLE CNC Machines Czech Republic” newly among exhibitors

STYLE CNC Machines has been manufacturing machine tools with a proprietary control system since 1991 and currently is operating in 17 countries of the world. It is specifically focused on the turning or milling of individual workpieces and small series. The company’s philosophy is to reduce the programming time (and therefore also the change time) to a minimum level. Since the work simplicity is the most important feature in case of small series, all the STYLE machines of this company are equipped with the STYLE 4 Control system. At the FOR INDUSTRY Trade Fair it will be possible to see the STYLE 510 lathe and BT 1500E milling machine.

Register your patents with the help of the Industrial Property Office of the Czech Republic

The Industrial Property Office (IPO) is one of the central authorities of the state administration of the Czech Republic and besides the functions of the patent and trademark office it performs also the functions of a special information centre of industrial property. The IPO deals with education of the public in the area of industrial rights by way of e-learning courses and regular seminars.

The stand of the Industrial Property Office will offer its visitors a possibility of getting familiar also with the information about the Visegrad Patent Institute (VPI), which is an intergovernmental organisation for cooperation in the field of patent protection and which started its activities on 1 July 2016. The VPI Establishment Treaty was made by the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia.

At the stand, the visitors will find also other information on protection of industrial rights and on national and foreign information databases of industrial rights, which the IPO makes accessible on its web site, together with presentations of how to find there various information about the state-of-the-art technology.

Visitors can discuss various issues connected with the sector of industrial rights as well.

BOUKAL s.r.o. to present its new corporate identity as well as the news “SERVO milling machine tool” at FOR INDUSTRY 2017

From 2017, BOUKAL s.r.o. will present itself with a new logo and corporate identity, which is already to be a part of the FOR INDUSTRY Trade Fair held in May.

At the trade fair, BOUKAL s.r.o. is planning to present a model from the series of the SERVO milling machine tools from the Austria-based firm “Bernardo”.

These innovations in the world of machine tools provide perfect work conditions in the milling sector. One of the greatest advantages is the servomotor which drives the shifting movement in the directions of all three axes. The motor is resistant and is comfortably controlled from the control panel. By using a turning controller it is possible to continuously regulate the speed of the shifting movement of each axis, and the switching of the machine shifting is controlled there by means of one lever (instead of three).

The company is the exclusive importer of Bernardo goods for the Czech Republic, and besides specialised advisory services and deliveries of machines it is able to ensure suitable accessories according to your needs and such services as setting and commissioning of the machine or training of operators.

BOUKAL s.r.o. can offer a wide range of goods in the field of machines, tools, tooling equipment, abrasives and grinding materials.

ENERGO SUMMIT, CZECH EXPORT LEADERS, 3D EXPO and a job vacancies exhibition

We have already started preparing an attractive accompanying programme – lectures and seminars will be taking place throughout the four days the exhibition is held, in the Congress Hall (capacity of 650 people) as well as in three smaller conference rooms. The very first day, 9 May 2016, you will be able to attend LEADERS OF CZECH EXPORT, an event focused on export, attended by top representatives of the government. The 3rd ENERGO SUMMIT, a leading event of the energy sector, will take place on Thursday, 11 May 2016. Its main topics this year will be SMART ENERGY and ELECTROMOBILITY. Fans of 3D technologies will certainly aprreciate 3Dexpo, the largest 3D conference and exhibition in the Czech Republic.

Most manufacturers complain about the lack of skilled technical workers. PRAGUE INDUSTRIAL TRADE FAIRS aim to interconnect the demand with the offer in its newly introduced sector FOR JOBS, an exhibition of job vacancies in industry.

New model of the PINACHO universal lathe at DK MACHINERY

The DK Machinery company completed its product range with PINACHO universal CNC lathes already twenty years ago. By doing so it extended its offer of forming machines also with machine tools at that time. Together with deliveries of press brakes, scissors and laser machining centres the range of universal CNC lathes was gradually extended also with machining centres. Besides this, the company started to offer also production lathes and long-turn CNC automatic machines so that the firm could be able to offer modern machines for both forming and machining.

At the FOR INDUSTRY Trade Fair it will be possible to see a new model of the PINACHO ST 225 x 1000 universal lathe equipped with a hydraulic clamping system and the automatic tool head for twelve tools. It means that various configurations enable this machine to be used for both a single-piece production system and a recurrent medium-series production system, all at an excellent price-to-performance ratio. The Forming Division will present the APHS press brake in a length of 1250mm with a tonnage of 40t. This machine will be equipped with the top Delem control system with a touch screen, which can be delivered to all lengths and capacities of our press brakes. Visitors will be able to try its excellent compatibility with the external SW as well.

“Industry 4.0 – IT future in industry” presentation at the FOR INDUSTRY Trade Fair

The business environment is undergoing continuous changes, which holds for industry as well. For several last years, the innovations, new inventions and research have markedly changed the actual functioning of businesses, their corporate processes, methods of corporate management as well as the manners in which data is collected and analysed. At present, the companies are able to collect large quantities of the data from various sites – from a manufacturing line up to the data entered manually in the accounting system. The future of the industry therefore consists in IT solutions which ensure, across the entire organisation, a single interface, data necessary for better decision making processes from a single place or uniform manufacturing as well as managing corporate processes.
