POWTECH 2019 – mechanical processing technology for tomorrow’s megatrends

The dynamic energy of POWTECH: large machinery in action and dialogue among experts
The dynamic energy of POWTECH: large machinery in action and dialogue among experts

The next POWTECH will take place from 9 to 11 April 2019 at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, where innovations and new approaches for the processing industries take centre-stage in six exhibition halls. Powder and bulk solids experts from around the world are invited to see the technology and solutions offered by exhibitors live in action. Two forums and an interactive knowledge zone provide expert knowledge for the food, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, glass and ceramics, non-metallic minerals and recycling segments. Here, and in the course of professional-level dialogue at the trade fair stands, visitors will get reliable answers to the challenges they face. PARTEC, the international congress for particle technology, will run parallel to POWTECH 2019 under the theme “Particles for a better life”.

At POWTECH 2019, exhibitors will showcase their latest developments for mechanical processes like size reduction, agglomeration, separation, screening, mixing, storage and conveying. The equipment and machinery on display are fundamental to the production processes of numerous industries. “Current industry megatrends such as energy storage or additive manufacturing (3D printing) are inconceivable without mechanical processing technology. At POWTECH 2019, we will be exploring these new application scenarios among others,” says Beate Fischer, Exhibition Director POWTECH. She draws a positive interim conclusion from the preparations so far: “Currently, around eight months before the start of the trade fair, more than 80 percent of the display area has already been booked. Companies who would like to take part in 2019 should contact us now.”

Exhibitors and visitors from around the world

Once again, visitors to POWTECH will encounter market leaders and innovative companies from all over the world. Registrations have been received from 27 different countries to date, and pavilions from Japan, China and Spain have already been announced. No less than 29 percent of exhibitors and 40 percent of visitors travelled to POWTECH 2017 in Nuremberg from other countries. The internationally renowned PARTEC Congress will also once again attract particle scientists and researchers from universities, institutes and companies worldwide to Nuremberg. More than 500 delegates are expected at the congress, which takes place every three years in the spring parallel to POWTECH. PARTEC is sponsored by VDI-GVC (Association of Process and Chemical Engineering).

Preview: new hall configuration, packed programme of presentations

At POWTECH 2019, Hall 5 will provide an extra display area alongside the usual halls 1, 2, 3, 4 and 4A. In Hall 2, the Expert Forum provides the venue for presentations and a supporting programme focusing on food and chemicals. Hall 3 will accommodate the Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence Forum, where, as the name suggests, pharmaceutical production processes will be put under the spotlight. The presentations in this forum are put together by the APV (International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology). APV members will once again have access to the APV Lounge at POWTECH 2019. In addition, all trade visitors can look forward to new, interactive presentation formats as part of the Networking Campus. Daily live explosion demonstrations in the exhibition centre’s park will yet again draw attention to the important issue of explosion protection.
