International Trade Fair for Mechanical Processing Technologies and Instrumentation

23 - 25 April 2013 at Exhibtion Centre Nuremberg

Process engineers from all over the world meet again at POWTECH in Nürnberg from 23–25 April 2013 to discuss technological innovations in size reduction, dosing, mixing, screening and granulation of powders and bulk solids. More than 700 exhibitors are expected.

Visitors can not only look forward to special topics on mechanical processing technologies, but also to synergies from the parallel events taking place in the exhibition centre: TechnoPharm, the International Trade Fair for Life Science Process Technologies Pharma – Food – Cosmetics, and PARTEC, the International Congress on Particle Technology, provide an extensive one-stop shop for handling powders and bulk solids. 

"There can be no question of a bad mood," says Claus Rättich, Member of the Management Board of NürnbergMesse, commenting on the impacts of the present economic situation on the coming POWTECH. “Although the economic prospects have become distinctly strained, we still expect the number of exhibitors and visitors at POWTECH to remain stable.”

This optimism is supported by the production forecast of the Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e. V. (VDMA – German Engineering Federation). Even if the rest of the mechanical engineering sector will stagnate this year at the previous year’s level, the federation is still forecasting five per cent growth for the production of mechanical processing technology. For instance, the companies registered thirty per cent more new orders in the second quarter of 2012 than in the same period of the previous year, which was appreciably above the mechanical engineering average of minus three per cent. Caution is called for, however, despite all the positive assessments.
