Billed as “the meeting point for the international ceramics industry,” ceramitec 2018 offers visitors access to the latest and greatest machinery, raw materials, process systems, devices, and cutting edge technology from 600 exhibitors from 37 countries. Approximately 60% of exhibitors and visitors come from outside of Germany.

93rd Meeting of the DKG & Symposium on High Performance Ceramics

ceramitec 2018 coincides with the 93rd Annual Meeting of the German Ceramic Society [Deutsche Keramische Gesellschaft (DKG)] & Symposium on High Performance Ceramics. This year’s symposium will focus on digitalization and industry 4.0, addressing what changes will affect the world of ceramics.

Leading international experts and panelists will also discuss how manufacturing of components will change in the future—and how manufacturers can optimize production processes, minimize raw material consumption, reduce power consumption, and help reshape the energy supply landscape.

The Association of the German Ceramic Industry [Verband der Keramischen Industrie (VKI)] will also hold its general meeting for VKI members.
