The International Rotating Equipment Conference – Pumps, Compressors and Vacuum Technology held in Wiesbaden, Germany, on September 24 to 25, 2019, will offer state-of-the-art technical papers by experts and special possibilities for networking. It will focus on how digitisation is changing pump, compressor and vacuum technology.
The Conference unites the 12th Pump Users International Forum and the 5th Compressor Users International Forum including Vacuum Technology. It is for users coming from oil & gas, refinery, chemical and pharmaceutical industry, water supply, sewage, building services, energy supply, energy generation, heating and cooling, mining, energy storage, renewable, power to X.
Most recent developments in pump an compressor technology
Industry has been undergoing drastic changes worldwide for several years. Industrie 4.0, predictive maintenance, additive manufacturing, and energy efficiency are just a few of the keywords in this fourth industrial revolution. Pump, compressor and vacuum manufacturers have helped to shape these changes from the start. At this year’s International Rotating Equipment Conference (IntRoEquipCon), they will once again present and discuss numerous innovations and new developments in these up-to- the-minute topics, with specialist contributions from users as well. “The conference has become the most important meeting of top-class specialists and visionaries in our industry. It is the ideal place to learn about the most recent developments, research results, and trends first hand,” says Christoph Singrün, Executive Director of VDMA’s Pumps + Systems and Compressors, Compressed Air and Vacuum Technology associations.
The conference is now the world’s largest sector network for technical innovations. It is geared not only towards manufacturers of pumps and compressors, but also at system designers and operators, component suppliers, representatives from research and development, and scientists. It is also an indispensable platform for young engineers to gain information on the sector and its future prospects. The two-day conference will also be accompanied by a trade exhibition.
Focus on digitisation
Plenary lecturer Dr. Matthias Fankhänel, former senior vice president, Centers of Technical Expertise at BASF SE, will explain how manufacturers and users of pumps, compressors and vacuum technology can jointly master the challenges posed by digitisation.
Those interested can find an overview of the program at www.introequipcon.com, where they can also register for the event. Information on renting a booth is available at www.introequipcon.com/exhibition. On the first evening of the conference, a dinner cruise on the Rhine will give all participants the opportunity to meet new contacts and reconnect with existing ones. The conference is held every three years. 750 experts from more than 30 countries participated in the last sector meeting in 2016.
