“This trade fair provides the surface technology industry with a platform for presenting the entire industry spectrum in a clear and compact way,” says Hendrik Engelking, Global Director at Deutsche Messe. This year’s SurfaceTechnology GERMANY will focus on climate and environment-friendly processes as well as resource efficiency and sustainability. Exhibition topics include electroplating, abrasive blasting, nano and microtechnology, thermal spraying, industrial plasma and laser surface technology, coating materials, surface treatment, environmental protection and supply technology, services, pretreatment and cleaning, plus measuring, testing and analysis technology.

An important element of SurfaceTechnology GERMANY consists of the group pavilion of the Central Association of Surface Technology (ZVO), where exhibitors will offer an insight into the diversity and productive efficiency of the electroplating and surface technology process chain, presenting it as a cross-sector technology. This display approach guarantees an impressive showcase of the full scope of processes within the industrial value chain.

A showcase dedicated to the contract coating sector will display the diversity and efficiency of surface technology. In the “Process Chain Surface Technology” special display, attendees from all production sectors of industry can obtain the latest information from industry experts. The focus is on a range of surface properties and coatings, highlighting their advantages in a wide variety of applications.

Another special attraction is the job wall of the fachjob24.de jobs portal, staged in cooperation with Deutsche Messe. This offering is aimed at exhibitors as well as non-exhibitors with company headquarters in Germany. They can peruse the job wall for qualified technical personnel directly on-site. In return, job applicants can obtain information directly from companies at SurfaceTechnology GERMANY.

Technical forum serves as knowledge platform and source of inspiration

The bilingual technical forum is a must-attend event for every trade visitor. It focuses on the current state of research in surface treatment as well as on future developments, dealing with questions like: “What's new in supply chain legislation and technical regulation?” or “What new coating technologies are available and how can they reduce a company’s carbon footprint?” Experts from leading companies as well as eminent scientists from research institutes will discuss and provide information on these topics.

Four co-located shows: LASYS, CastForge, Automotive Testing and Autonomous Vehicle Technology

Exhibitors and visitors to SurfaceTechnology GERMANY will benefit from four concurrent events: LASYS, International Trade Fair for Laser Materials Processing in Hall 4; CastForge, Trade Fair for Castings and Forgings with Machining in Halls 3 and 5; Automotive Testing Expo in Halls 8 and 10; and Autonomous Vehicle Technology Expo in Hall 6. Attendees with a ticket to any one of these events can visit all of them.
