A unique marketplace for innovation 18 March 2024

From 23rd – 26th April this year, the most up to date technologies from the fields of vision technology, image processing, sensor technology, as well as measuring and test technology, will be presented in Stuttgart for the 36th edition of Control. 

Control showcases various types of measuring technology that is relevant for all industries and the 2024 edition aims to build on the success of Control 2023, which served as a highly inspiring platform for its visitors. 

 “We’re currently able to confirm very strong booking levels, with 43% of the exhibitors coming from outside of Germany. We’re once again expecting impressive, trailblazing solutions for quality assurance and an expanded range of topics,” comments Fabian Krüger, control project manager at P.E Schall, organisers of the exhibition.

Quality assurance has become increasingly important in many industries and sectors, a sentiment which is reflected at the Control trade fair. “Quality assurance solutions are used in industrial production, in all operational processes, in non industrial fields of application, in medical technology as well as in defence applications,” explains Fabian. “Measurement, testing, inspection, evaluation, documentation –
end-to-end solutions for these functions are required everywhere because more and more data is being captured, analysed, linked and fed back to the respective systems in order to achieve transparency and consistency. This is why software and intelligent evaluation algorithms are playing an increasingly important role.” 

Control brings quality assurance experts from all over the world together on an equal footing and is regarded as a unique meeting place for professionals. An intensive exchange of expertise takes place at the event, which is highly valued by exhibitors and expert visitors alike. Solution suppliers come together directly with quality managers, engineers and production experts involved in routine daily operations. 

“Quality inspection and quality assurance are highly interesting topics that impact all industries,” highlights Bettina Schall, managing director of P.E Schall. “This event demonstrates just how rapidly technology is developing. Control’s user-oriented trade fair format features the presentation of top technologies, outstanding expertise, direct practical relevance and high-levels of internationalism.”
