Suppliers and production specialists from all over the world will meet at Powtech 2010 on April 27-29, 2010. At the last event in 2008, 707 companies presented their products to more than 15 000 trade visitors. The 6th World Congress on Particle Technology takes place parallel to Powtech this year, starting a day earlier on April 26.
The Powtech exhibition is the leading international communication forum for cross-sector technologies. Particle analysis for characterization, process control and quality assurance goes hand in hand with the latest developments in mechanical processes. This means Powtech not only shows the innovations for central process functions in many industries, but is also a recognized trend indicator. Manufacturers of process technology, plant and apparatus with their innovative solutions show new ways for optimized efficiency, lower energy consumption, more exact reproducibility and markedly less use of resources.
With this range of products, Powtech offers three days of exceptionally concentrated information for visitors from industries such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, machinery and plant engineering, packaging, food, nanotechnology, explosion protection and industrial safety, quarrying and earthworks, and ceramics.
One in three of the more than 15000 visitors in 2008 travelled from abroad to attend Powtech and the parallel TechnoPharm exhibition. Some 94 percent of Powtech visitors are involved in procurement decisions, according to the results of a survey by an independent institute in 2008. The main reason for visiting is to obtain information about new products, followed by exchanging views and information, cultivating existing business contacts, market orientation and training.
Powtech offers a comprehensive spectrum of products and services in the exhibition halls and many special shows and lecture presentations as training platforms. In combination with TechnoPharm, the International Trade Fair for Life Science Process Technologies, this exhibition provides the necessary information lead and the inspiration to create key competitive advantages again in 2010.
Industrial safety and explosion protection are currently more topical than ever in the powder and bulk solids processing industry and in process technologies for the pharma, food and cosmetics sectors. So it is obvious that Powtech/TechnoPharm 2010 as leading exhibition duo offers a platform for these key issues. The daily dust explosions in the exhibition centre park impressively demonstrate the potential hazard.
VDI Wissensforum Düsseldorf presents an accompanying seminar on explosion protection on April 26-27, which summarizes the major requirements of the Occupational Health & Safety Act and shows case studies in a concentrated and practical form. The participants learn how a risk assessment is structured and carried out and obtain basic information about the classification and marking of zones in explosive areas. Preventive and design measures for explosion protection are presented with examples.
During the next Powtech/TechnoPharm the “nanoTruck” of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research presents nanotechnology live at two levels and brings the theory from the scientists’ laboratories straight to the people.
Visitors can look forward to interesting and topical lectures at the Exhibitor Forums in the halls. Admission to the lectures is free. The full programme is available at the Powtech website: www.powtech.de.
In 2010, the World Congress on Particle Technology (WCPT), supported by the Partec Congress, takes place in parallel to the Powtech/TechnoPharm duo for the second time. This world congress will concentrate and discuss the latest findings and experiences from all segments of particle technology, when more than 1000 scientists from all over the world compare their research findings during the four days of the event.
“We are delighted to have received more than 750 papers from 42 countries. They were all examined by the programme committee, and we can already promise four highly interesting days”, says Claus Rättich, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse. “Together with Powtech, the world’s largest exhibition for powder and bulk solids technology, this year’s WCPT is the outstanding scientific forum for sourcing information on all particulate technology.”
