The organizers of ceramitec 2018 say that technical ceramics will be an important part of the upcoming show, taking place from 10-13 April 2018 in Munich, Germany.
Currently, some 20% more exhibitors from this segment have signed up for the trade show, and the technical ceramics segment has significantly grown since ceramitec 2015, according to Igor Palka, exhibition director of ceramitec. ‘High-performance ceramics have developed to become an important constituent for the ceramics industry,’ he said. ‘Particularly in the field of material and component development, technical ceramics are a dynamic element because the industry constantly requires new developments in terms of materials and components.’
‘The further development of technical ceramics opens up new sales/application potentials for the industry, for example in the automotive sector, in aerospace or in medical engineering,’ added Robert Schönberger, exhibition group director. ‘This means an added value for the visitors of ceramitec 2018: On the one hand, they will receive information on raw materials, additive manufacturing, machines and kilns for the production of components made of technical ceramics; on the other hand, they can view and appraise the most diverse technical components from ceramics materials.’
The conference program also features a ‘Day of Technical Ceramics’ on Thursday 12 April subdivided into four sessions with different focus areas: ’New Materials for Ceramic Components with Enhanced Performance’, ’Design of Ceramic Components for New Applications’, ’Ceramic Components for Harsh Working Environment’ and ’Technology Enhancement for New Applications’.
