World’s Only Trade Fair for Sealing and Polymer Technology and Processing: ISGATEC Expands

ISGATEC World’s Only Trade Fair for Sealing and Polymer Technology and Processing (PresseBox) (Neuffen, ) Relocation of the event to Nuremberg and concurrent promotion along with POWTECH and TechnoPharm have made ISGATEC even more attractive. And this is already being confirmed 10 months before the trade fair opens its doors by an exhibitor list which is overflowing with highly renowned industry companies. The 5th ISGATEC, which will take place in Nuremberg from 27 through 29 March 2007, will not only demonstrate growth in exhibitor numbers, occupied floor space will increase as well: The size of the average booth has grown by 23%. Technical support for the upcoming event will once again be provided by the European Sealing Association (ESA).

They’re usually small, inconspicuous and hardly noticeable. But this is not the case at ISGATEC where seals play the leading role. The internationally unique trade fair concerns itself exclusively with sealing and polymer technology and processing. This clearly defined range of topics is making ISGATEC a more and more attractive industry meeting place for manufacturers and suppliers of sealing products, and this is plainly demonstrated by the fact that more and more large German companies are exhibiting at the event, for example Frenzelit Werke GmbH, Klinger GmbH, Ulman-Dichtungstechnik GmbH, Wacker-Chemie AG and Walther Trowal GmbH. The promoters are encountering growing exhibitor interest from outside of Germany as well – from European, as well as American and Asian companies. 50% of last year’s occupied floor space has already been booked, before the actual canvassing phase has even begun. To a given extent this also results from the fact that many companies have booked significantly more booth floor space than before, allowing them to present their entire spectrum of products and services.

A World-Class Presentation and Information Platform
ISGATEC exhibitors come from all fields of sealing and polymer technology and processing. The spectrum of exhibited products covers everything from dynamic sealing systems such as mechanical face seals, shaft seals, hydraulic seals and pneumatic seals, as well as chemical seals, static seals made from various materials in a great variety of variants, gluing and sealing systems, liquid gaskets and sealing strips, right on up to moulded parts, diaphragms, bellows and profiles. Additional important exhibition topics include seal materials, semi-finished seals, processing machinery and equipment, tool and mould making, assembly and feed technology, measuring and test equipment, and services. The trade fair’s nomenclature is rounded out with topics including gluing, adhesive bonding, joining, surface finishing and insulating, by means of which the promoters come to terms with the continuously increasing demands for multifunctionality which are being placed upon sealing processes.
The comprehensive offerings presented by ISGATEC make is possible for purchasing agents, R&D and design engineers, general management and users from production, quality assurance and maintenance, as well as distributors of technical products, to gather personalised information in a time and cost optimised fashion regarding new products, materials and solutions. ISGATEC visitors from the automotive industry and engine manufacturing, the chemicals, the pharmaceuticals and the food processing industries, from machinery, equipment and systems manufacturing, air conditioning, plumbing and fluid technology, applications and process engineering, biotechnology and medical engineering, electronics and electrical engineering, as well as cleanroom technology, the pump industry and many other sectors, are distinguished by high levels of technical competence and decision making authority. And this made it possible for roughly two thirds of all exhibitors at the last year’s event to develop new customers and penetrate new industries.

ISGATEC Expert Forum – Know-How Covering All Aspects of Sealing Technology
Great demand for information regarding all aspects of sealing and polymer technology is covered by ISGATEC at an integrated expert forum. Renowned speakers from research, R&D and industry will hold practice oriented, application-specific presentations and answer questions regarding a broad range of topics. Main thematic emphases include basic sealing technology, a comparison of sealing systems – application and limitations, static and dynamic seals and production of sealing systems and post-processing (e.g. seals for micro-components and related problems, coatings for seals), as well as analysis of damage, its causes and prevention, and leak tests.
