Focus on energy and cost efficiency

As in virtually every sector of industry, ceramics, too, has identified green, cost-efficient technology as the way forward into the future. Visitors to Ceramitec, which takes place in Munich between 20 and 23 October 2009, will be able to find out just what is involved in a special exhibition on 'Energy and Cost Efficiency', organised jointly for the first time by the VDMA (Germany´s engineering federation) and the Working Group of European Ceramic Technology Suppliers (ECTS) and its member companies. So far the following have signed up to take part in this special exhibition: Beralmar, Burton, Dieffenbacher, Eirich, Elster, Lingl, Rotho, RTE Akustik + Prüftechnik and Verdes.


This special exhibition, which is being put on in Hall A5, close to the Ceramitec orum, offers experts in machine and systems engineering an additional platform for presenting their technologies to a broad trade audience. The aim is to present trade visitors with technological solutions, to give inspiration and to show how manufacturers can save operating costs in their own companies, improve quality and thereby enhance their competitiveness.


Fossil fuels are becoming an ever scarcer resource, energy prices are rising and cost pressure in the processing industry is increasing all the time. For these reasons producers in the ceramics industry and in powder metallurgy are looking more and more closely at the subject of energy and cost efficiency. In energy-intensive manufacturing processes in particular, tremendous cost savings can be achieved, by using product and process technologies that use energy efficiently while also protecting the climate and the environment.


Machinery and plant manufacturing is by far the most important upstream supplier of innovative technology for the future in all value-added stages of ceramics production – from preparing ceramic bodies, to moulding, firing and drying as well as transporting and testing the end product. Spectacular savings can be achieved with products like burners, kilns and drying installations; in other areas these products can make a significant contribution to improving quality and reducing the reject rate.


Exhibitors at Ceramitec can take part in the special exhibition free of charge; companies that are not exhibitors at Ceramitec pay a flat rate of €500. For further information, and a registration form, contact the Ceramitec exhibition team (Phone: +49 89 9 49-113 78, e-mail:
