ACHEMA 2018: Preparations moving into high gear

20.03.2017

There is still over a year to go before ACHEMA 2018 opens, nevertheless preparations are moving into high gear: more than 2,400 companies have already ordered a stand; by the time the halls open on 11 June 2018 the organisers expect the exhibitor figure to top the 3,800 mark, all set to present their products and technologies to some 170,000 visitors from all over the world. This time the world’s leading trade show for the process industry will zero in on three focal topics: Flexible Production, Biotech for Chemistry, and Chemical and Pharmaceutical Logistics.

Suppliers will show the latest innovations in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food processing industries in 11 exhibition groups: from laboratory equipment to pumps, compressors and other components through to complete packaging lines. The accompanying congress with around 800 lectures will provide complementary information on future trends, backed up with applications and issues from industry.


ACHEMA 2018 - the preparations are in full swing

DECHEMA/Stettin

In 2018 the trade show will zero in on three topics that apply to all the varied sectors of the process industry and all the exhibition groups:

Biotech for Chemistry underscores the increasing integration of chemical and biotechnological processes. It is no longer a question of “either-or”, but of the optimum combination of these two worlds, from strain development through to product – with all the challenges this entails for processes and processing methods.


At the same time the demands made on Flexible Production are soaring – whether it be different regional requirements, varying energy and raw materials supplies, shorter product cycles or customised production: flexibility is the key to success on the dynamic global markets.

The solutions include modular plants, robust processes and intelligent components which, thanks to digitalisation, communicate with each other and integrate many tasks into the plant from process adjustment to predictive maintenance.

These developments are inconceivable without the integration of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Logistics which is progressively making a transition from service provider to systems partner. Data exchange across the whole supply chain, track and trace systems even for the smallest loads, while still remaining committed to safe and punctual transport of raw materials and products – all these factors make for the success of a globalised sector.

In the exhibition, congress, and the application-oriented PRAXISforums which bring together suppliers and customers in close proximity to the individual exhibition groups, and also in a variety of accompanying events and publications, these topics will be just as intensively explored and discussed as all the other topical developments that impact the process industry today and tomorrow.

Im Focus: Artificial agent designs quantum experiments

On the way to an intelligent laboratory, physicists from Innsbruck and Vienna present an artificial agent that autonomously designs quantum experiments. In initial experiments, the system has independently (re)discovered experimental techniques that are nowadays standard in modern quantum optical laboratories. This shows how machines could play a more creative role in research in the future.

We carry smartphones in our pockets, the streets are dotted with semi-autonomous cars, but in the research laboratory experiments are still being designed by...

Im Focus: Scientists decipher key principle behind reaction of metalloenzymes

So-called pre-distorted states accelerate photochemical reactions too

What enables electrons to be transferred swiftly, for example during photosynthesis? An interdisciplinary team of researchers has worked out the details of how...

Im Focus: The first precise measurement of a single molecule's effective charge

For the first time, scientists have precisely measured the effective electrical charge of a single molecule in solution. This fundamental insight of an SNSF Professor could also pave the way for future medical diagnostics.

Electrical charge is one of the key properties that allows molecules to interact. Life itself depends on this phenomenon: many biological processes involve...

Im Focus: Paradigm shift in Paris: Encouraging an holistic view of laser machining

At the JEC World Composite Show in Paris in March 2018, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be focusing on the latest trends and innovations in laser machining of composites. Among other things, researchers at the booth shared with the Aachen Center for Integrative Lightweight Production (AZL) will demonstrate how lasers can be used for joining, structuring, cutting and drilling composite materials.

No other industry has attracted as much public attention to composite materials as the automotive industry, which along with the aerospace industry is a driver...

Im Focus: Room-temperature multiferroic thin films and their properties

Scientists at Tokyo Institute of Technology (Tokyo Tech) and Tohoku University have developed high-quality GFO epitaxial films and systematically investigated their ferroelectric and ferromagnetic properties. They also demonstrated the room-temperature magnetocapacitance effects of these GFO thin films.

Multiferroic materials show magnetically driven ferroelectricity. They are attracting increasing attention because of their fascinating properties such as...
