The latest installation of Achema, which is a platform for exhibition of the latest and most innovative equipment in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries, was held from 11 to 15 June 2018 in Frankfurt. The Batswadi/Labotec team attended the Achema to identify new products, trends and innovations that are suitable for the African market. Numerous exhibitors revealed their latest developments. However, there was a clear trend towards digitisation, automation and remote monitoring of devices.
To enhance the experience, some booths treated visitors to experiencing their equipment through augmented reality – either with the help of special glasses or presentations that detailed the deconstruction of the equipment. For the more manufacturing focused industries, exhibitors took visitors through intelligent components integration for the factory of tomorrow under the three focus topics: ‘Flexible Production’, ‘Biotech for Chemistry’, and ‘Chemical and Pharma Logistics’.
Achema was a great opportunity for Labotec to affirm that it is sourcing the latest, best quality and appropriate equipment for our customers. The next Achema will be held in Frankfurt from 14 to 18 June 2021.
