CERAMITEC 2012: Supporting Program Focuses on Cost- and Energy-efficiency

Again in 2012, the supporting program, held in the CERAMITEC Forum in Hall A5, will provide a valuable platform for information-gathering, knowledge-transfer, research and development. Attendance at all the specialist lectures and panel discussions is free of charge. Simultaneous interpretation (German/English) is provided at all the lectures.



The German Trade Association of Powder Metallurgy (Fachverband Pulvermetallurgie) is presenting the Powder Metallurgy Day on Tuesday afternoon, 22 May. The main focus of this day will be on new and well-established technologies for the production of powder metallurgy parts as well as on innovations and technologies for manufacturing processes in the ceramic industry and other areas of application. A range of talks will give given on production processes, innovative technologies und newly developed systems in this sector. Heavy Clay Day
The Heavy Clay Day will take place on Wednesday, 23 May. The journal ZI – Ziegelindustrie International will present first-rate speakers focusing on the subject of conservation of natural resources and energy efficiency and the chances and opportunities this opens up for the heavy clay industry. For the first time ever, the ECTS (European Ceramic Technology Suppliers) working group is participating in this event in the form of a panel discussion.
Technical Ceramics Day: The 10th International Symposium on Ceramic Materials and Components for Energy and Environmental Applications is being held from 20 to 23 May in Dresden. On Wednesday the delegates will be transfered to Munich for CERAMITEC, where the conference will continue in the form of the Technical Ceramics Day on Thursday, 24 May 24. Many of the delegates from the CMCEE International Symposium are expected to attend this day, as speakers and discussion partners.
Another highlight in the supporting program is the India Day, taking place on Friday, 25 May. This is the second time that an India Day has been held at CERAMITEC. Organized by the Indian office of Germany´s engineering federation, the VDMA, this event looks at the general situation and conditions on the Indian market.
Guided Tours: A range of guided tours is being introduced for the first time next year for CERAMITEC 2012, to round off the supporting program. Different tours are being put together on the themes of Heavy Clay, Technical Ceramics and Energy-efficiency, kilns, refractory; participants will be taken around the fair to see the highlights on the respective themes. Two tours per day are being planned, both in English and lasting around 2,5 h. Each tour stops at a maximum of 8 stands, where exhibitors will have 15 min to present their highlights. Companies wishing to be involved as stations on these tours are requested to register as soon as possible. There is no charge for trade visitors wishing to take part in the guided tours.
The international platform offered by CERAMITEC 2012 is also being used for the second time for a ThinkIng initiative, at which schoolchildren and students have the chance to meet and talk to leading companies from the sector and find out about the working world of engineers, electrical technicians and process technicians engaged in the industry today. The program is rounded off by further information on study courses and job prospects. The initiator and organizer of ThinkIng is the Ceramics Machinery Section of the VDMA.
