Forums with Packed Programme of Presentations
The Expert Forum in Hall 2 provides the platform for presentations focusing on food and chemicals. On all three days of the fair, there is a non-stop programme of talks on topics like conveying and dosing of powder and bulk solids, compressed air supply or process optimisation in bulk solids handling. Experts from the food industry will provide insights into Food Economy 4.0, food safety, and the pneumatic conveying of powder and bulk goods. The same hall also accommodates the special show "Dust recognises boundaries - free trade doesn't" organised by the VDMA Group Air Purification and Drying Technology. It will show the options available for limiting dust using innovative filtering and separation systems that are often digitally supported.
Hall 3 houses the Pharma.Manufacturing.Excellence Forum. This pharmaceutical forum brings together functional excipients and modern equipment - the key to process efficiency and optimal dosage forms. The presentations cover the following main topics:
Coating / granulation / cleaning
The pharmaceutical forum is coordinated by the APV (International Association for Pharmaceutical Technology). Directly adjacent to the forum, suppliers of pharmaceutical excipients will for the first time also provide a fitting complement to the range on display at POWTECH for pharmaceutical experts. Participants in the guided tours for PROCESS ENGINEERING on the first and third days of the event can find out about the best components for designing and operating pharmaceutical processing facilities.
with high-calibre keynote speakers
As one of the world's leading congresses for particle technology, PARTEC gathers the professional community in Nuremberg every three years. "Our congress theme 'Particles for a better life' underscores this key role played by particle research," says Professor Stefan Heinrich, Chairman of PARTEC 2019. "In 2019, alongside traditional fields of application, we will also be focusing strongly on cutting-edge technologies e.g. from the life sciences, energy and environmental technology or additive manufacturing, and will explore how particle technology can help drive these applications." Six high-calibre speakers are set to provide inspiration at PARTEC with the latest findings from their disciplines. The speakers cover a wide range of topics and touch on areas of application like additive manufacturing or CO2 reduction. Congress delegates can look forward to speakers from the USA, UK, Australia and Germany, for example.
More safety in
The issue of explosion protection will also receive good coverage. "As POWTECH we want to make manufacturers aware that serious accidents in production facilities can be avoided with reasonable time and effort," explains Fischer. The event therefore includes daily live demonstrations outdoors - including spectacular flame effects and bangs - and guided tours on this subject. In addition, there will be presentations on explosion protection in both the Networking Campus and Expert Forum on all three days of the fair. The topics presented are intended to provide insights into new German and international developments in standardisation, research and technology.
POWTECH 2019 will take place at Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 9 to 11 April.
