Where the experts in bulk materials and mechanical processing technology meet: The POWTECH in Nuremberg from 26 to 28 September 2017

POWTECH 2017: The heart of mechanical processing technology

High number of registrations six months before event start

Bulk solids experts, process technicians, engineers and plant operators from all over the world will gather in September for POWTECH in Nuremberg. On three days and in six exhibition halls, visitors will experience the latest equipment and systems for the whole gamut of mechanical processes from A to Z. Forums, guided tours and lectures complement the presentations by the around 900 exhibitors expected to attend. A new feature in 2017 will be the special display area Pharma Solids for concentrated pharmaceutical expertise in Hall 3A. POWTECH 2017 will take place from 26 to 28 September at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.

Every 18 months, POWTECH brings together the global innovations in mechanical processing technology and for the analysis and handling of powder and bulk solids. Plant designers and operators from almost all segments, including chemicals and pharmaceuticals, foodstuffs, non-metallic minerals, recycling and ceramics, come together to update their knowledge and explore the state-of-the-art in processing technology. At present, more than six months before the trade fair starts, a good 85 per cent of the display area total from 2016 has already been booked again. ”The high number of registrations underscores the importance of the event as the No. 1 platform for mechanical processing technology,” emphasises Beate Fischer, Exhibition Director POWTECH at NürnbergMesse. ”The sector plays a decisive role in shaping current industry trends and in September will once again showcase its latest developments. The registrations also promise a strong international presence and a large number of often impressive exhibits.”

High-tech meets practical expertise

Two forums will offer ongoing presentations and workshops on issues affecting the industry. Bulk solids practitioners will gather at the expert forum in Hall 2, where they can experience best practice examples by leading manufacturers and users in the form of compact presentations. Users involved in the pharmaceutical sector will find themselves at home in the ”Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence” forum in Hall 3A and will come away with useful tips on how to meet the challenges facing them.

New in 2017: greater pharmaceutical presence

More than half of all exhibitors at POWTECH offer solutions for use in pharmaceutical manufacturing. In 2017 the special display area ”Focus on Pharma Solids” will make its debut. This area in Hall 3A will bring together the technologies and products necessary for the production of pharmaceutical solids. The special display area is directly adjacent to the ”Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence” forum which offers presentations on this subject. To complement the special show, the APV (international association for pharmaceutical technology) is also planning a new conference devoted to the subject of pharmaceutical solids.
