Fairs & Exhibitions Focus on Food – High–Tech Recipe at Powtech 2013

Editor: Dominik Stephan

Clear the stage for food processing solutions: As a lot of food handling processes are mainly mechanical, Powtech 2013, the trade fair and exhibition for mechanical process solutions, features the whole range of dosing, weighing and agglomeration technologies...

Size reduction, screening, mixing, conveying, dosing and granulating are essential ingredients for almost all food production. The Powtech (held in Nuremberg from 23–25 April 2013) offers an extensive overview of handling powders, granules and bulk solids. The exhibition with more than 700 exhibitors from 26 countries traditionally reflects the entire spectrum of mechanical processes for all sectors of the food and feed industry at the highest technological level.

Innovation forum for Dosing and Weighing

Ingredients in the form of powder or granules are the basis for almost all recipes in the food and feed industry. The key plant component in these processes is undoubtedly the dosing and weighing equipment. This ensures reproducibility and thus constant quality from batch to batch. The dosing accuracy is also a profitability factor, e.g. as a measure of minimized overfilling or underfilling.

Detailed knowledge of new developments and improvements in dosing and weighing equipment is therefore a decisive competitive factor especially for plant planners and operators in the food industry.

As a leading exhibition for the whole field of mechanical processing technology, Powtech offers specialists from the food industry 230 exhibitors that present the latest solutions for dosing and weighing alone. They show the whole spectrum from rotary feeder and cutting-edge volumetric and gravimetric dosing processes to individual load cells, but naturally current developments in belt scales and bulk flow weighing machines too.

Leading Forum for Agglomeration Technology

The special importance of Powtech for the food and feed industry is also shown by another technology segment at this exhibition: More than 50 companies – including all the technology leaders in this special field, such as Glatt and Hosokawa Bepex – present the latest plant for agglomeration.

The event thus offers a unique and complete overview especially of this widely used process in food production. In Nuremberg, planners and operators can obtain extensive information on current new developments and improvements in agglomerating, compacting and granulating – all this in compact form in five halls.
