PaintExpo 2016: Solutions for more efficient coatings
Innovations and further developments ranging from pre-treatment to quality control for practically all materials and material combinations will be unveiled.
Bigger than ever
Roughly 31% of the exhibitors come from outside of Germany and a total of 26 countries are represented. With net exhibition floor space amounting to more than 13,200 m², the international trade fair for industrial coating technology will be bigger than ever. Visitors from companies with in-house painting operations and from job-shop coaters will be awaited by multi-sector offerings for a comprehensive range of materials which are unparalleled around the globe. The exhibition programme includes systems and application technology, pre-treatment and cleaning, paints, drying and cross-linking systems, conveyor technology, automation solutions and painting robots, measuring and test equipment, quality control, environmental engineering, accessories, consumable materials, packaging and services.
Lots of live presentations
The exhibitors will showcase innovations, further developments and new trends in all of the trade fair segments. And not just as product displays, but rather with numerous live presentations. For example, solutions targeted at integrating Industry 4.0 into the paint shop will be shown. And the latest developments for coating and curing geometrically complex parts with UV technology will be demonstrated live on-site. A fully automated, compact powder coating system will be operated at PaintExpo as well. And things will get set into motion at various booths with companies from the field of conveyor technology. Additionally, visitors will be able to gather information on just how agile, flexible and easily programmable today’s painting robots are directly at the source.
Newly developed liquid paints
For the first time ever anywhere in the world, a system for cleaning conveyor system chains, for example as used in Power & Free conveyors, will be introduced. It can be used in running production lines and contributes to the minimisation of costly scrap and rework caused by falling contamination. Visitors will also be awaited by processes and products for more efficient and ecological cleaning and pre-treatment such as newly developed liquid paints and powdered enamels with optimised decorative and functional characteristics. Innovative and advanced paint guns and atomisers provide for increased material efficiency, quality and ergonomics where the application of these coatings is concerned.
Paint stripping and packaging solutions
They usually don’t receive a great deal of attention but they’re indispensable for reliable and efficient painting and coating processes: new developments in the areas of precipitation systems, test and inspection systems, accessories such as covering materials, painting hangers and pumps, as well as paint stripping and packaging solutions.
PaintExpo will take place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 19 through the 22 of April, 2016. The leading international trade fair for industrial coating technology will be open Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and on Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Further information and the exhibitor list can be accessed at www.paintexpo.de.
