Automation to Achema


Complete solution for CIP cleaning in the brewing process

Process engineering Made by Jumo has expanded its portfolio to include a comprehensive automation solution for process engineering processes. Now, with the “Varitron” system and the new graphical program editor “Smartware,” customer-specific solutions can be easily configured without any special programming knowledge. Jumo contributes all of its expertise as a system and solution provider.
laboratory robot

For human-robot collaboration in the laboratory

ABB Robotics presents the 6-axis cobot Gofa for automated sample handling in the laboratory in the Digital Lab. At the “Cobot AI Sample Sorting” exhibit, the Cobot fills a centrifuge with a batch of unsorted samples and then structures them into a rack. The object recognition is carried out by an AI-based 3D vision system.

Ex-protected tablet with augmented reality qualities

Pepperl+Fuchs is expanding its “Tab-Ex” tablet series with the “Tab-Ex 04 Pro DZ2 / D2” device. This is based on the robust Samsung Galaxy Tabactive4 Pro. It features a bright but lightweight 10” touchscreen with 480 nits and the latest hardware and connectivity standards. The modern tablet is very powerful for innovative applications such as augmented reality.
Radar sensor

Industrial radar sensor with CAN interface

The new radar sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs for recording distance, speed and direction of movement are extremely compact. Housed in an IP68/69 housing, they are particularly robust. The design also allows maximum flexibility during assembly. The rotatable and pivotable sensor head of the radar sensor can be optimally aligned to the target area in almost any installation situation.

Electrical engineering to Achema


Endress+Hauser joins SPE System Alliance

Endress+Hauser is actively committed to promoting the digitalization of its customers. By joining the Single Pair Ethernet System Alliance, the company underlines its confidence in collaborating with other members as they work together to shape the future of automation technology.

Fluid technology to Achema


Compressors for the process gas industry

Based on the extremely wide range of future-oriented blowers and compressors, Aerzen implements tailor-made concepts with the highest level of efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness for hydrogen compression, the green gas sector or process engineering - one example is the oil-free screw compressor of the 2C series.

Machine elements for Achema

Cylindrical roller bearings

Cylindrical roller bearings for heavy industrial gears

Schaeffler presents its new cylindrical roller bearings series NJ23-ILR for construction machinery and heavy industrial gearboxes. The rolling bearings are compact and equipped with the high-performance Mpax cage, which gives them a very high dynamic load capacity. With regard to the base bearing type NJ23, the load capacity could be increased by an average of 24%. The service life doubles.

Measurement technology for Achema


Measurement technology ensures quality in hydrogen production

The global hydrogen economy is in full swing and is an important part of the energy transition. Jumo would like to participate in this development and, with its measurement technology, is positioning itself as a system and solution provider for hydrogen production. Pressure and temperature sensors, conductivity sensors or pressure transmitters ensure quality here.

Materials + processes for Achema


Preparation of raw materials and recycling

Gebrüder Lödige Maschinenbau presents process technology solutions for the recycling of lithium batteries. Application-specific plowshare mixers deliver excellent results in battery recycling. These are ceramic coated to avoid contamination during the production of cathode materials.
