20th POWTECH brought the world of process engineering together


NürnbergMesse GmbH

Save the date: POWTECH 2019, 9-11 April 2019

After three eventful and successful days, the 20th POWTECH in Nuremberg has come to a close. The most international edition of POWTECH to date, it brought together 835 exhibitors from 29 countries in its six exhibition halls. Thirty-nine percent of the exhibitors came from outside Germany, a new record. POWTECH once again confirmed its position as the world’s leading trade fair for powder, bulk solids and particle technologies, and as the place to be for mechanical engineers and plant manufacturers to present their new developments and innovations. POWTECH has proven itself to be THE meeting place for the bulk solids community in all industries, from the foodstuffs, pharmaceutical and chemical sectors to construction, ceramics and recycling. An international public made up of over 14,000* visitors benefited from a top-level supporting programme in addition to the broad range of products and services at the exhibition itself.

“POWTECH 2017 impressed, motivated and brought together the best in the industry,” says Beate Fischer, event manager POWTECH at NürnbergMesse, summarising the event. “This is the only location where process engineers can examine an unparalleled, broad range of products and services representing all kinds of mechanical processes, and the only place where they can get first-hand access to expert knowledge in countless lectures and seminars. Even after 20 editions in Nuremberg, there is still nothing equal to POWTECH.”

Good discussions, many exhibits

Exhibitors had 27,300 square metres of space in which to present the entire range of mechanical process engineering. The scene at many stands was set by complete systems and machines for conveying, separating, grinding, mixing, stirring or agglomerating, many of them in live operation. The exhibitors also displayed control and automation solutions, as well as components and accompanying technologies, including devices for measuring and analysis, and filter, air cleaning and explosion protection equipment. The exhibitors praised the very high quality of the discussions at their stands, and the high level of interest shown by the trade visitors.

More international than ever

The largest group among the international exhibitors came from Italy (59 companies), followed by Switzerland with 34 exhibitors, and the UK with 28. China showed a marked increase, with a total of 18 exhibitors this year. POWTECH 2017 attracted 14,066 trade visitors to Nuremberg (autumn event in 2014: 15,235). About 40 percent came from outside Germany, mainly from Austria, Italy, Switzerland, Czechia and Poland. Besides technical innovations from all over the world, the exhibition also offered many opportunities to network and an extensive supporting programme to encourage professional development.

Multi-industry dialogue for powder professionals

Two forums at the exhibition offered lectures on practical aspects of mechanical process engineering. In the outdoor area, the Ind Ex trade association arranged spectacular live explosions to demonstrate the effectiveness of explosion protection equipment. The VDMA Industry Association for General Ventilation Technology held its special show, “Dust-Free Future”, in Hall 2, with a wealth of exhibits. The second special show, on pharmaceutical solids, brought together some 20 machines and systems covering the relevant processing stages from grinding to particle analysis.

Save the date

The next POWTECH will be held in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 9 to 11 April 2019 – once again in association with PARTEC, the international congress for particle technology. The theme of the congress will be “Particles for a better life”.
