Hannover Messe

Hannover Messe  |  25 - 29 APR 2016

The subcontracting industry continues to go from strength to strength. Industrial subcontractors have long been much more than simple suppliers of components and spare parts. For many years now, they have been equal partners to their industrial customers in the development of new products and solutions. This year’s Industrial Supply show at HANNOVER MESSE will once again highlight this important relationship. As the world’s leading trade fair for innovative subcontracting solutions and lightweight construction, Industrial Supply is set to deliver another strong performance from 25 to 29 April. Exhibitor registrations for the three Industrial Supply halls (4, 5 and 6) already partly exceed the high levels recorded at the same time in last year’s planning cycle. Particularly strong growth has come from this year’s Partner Country, the United States of America. Compared to 2015, the number of exhibitors from the US, which currently stands at around 40, has quadrupled. Key themes covered by the US contingent include lightweight construction; high-tech materials; metal, ceramics and composite components; precision parts; industrial lubricant solutions; coatings; corrosion protection systems; adhesive films; and locks, latches and fittings.

While lightweight construction will be a keynote theme right throughout this year’s HANNOVER MESSE, the beating heart of the lightweight construction showcase will be Hall 6 of the Industrial Supply fair. The growing momentum of the lightweight megatrend is reflected in the steadily increasing size of the hall’s dedicated lightweight construction display area. One of this year’s newcomers is CFK Valley, an international industry network for the entire fiber reinforced composite value chain. Among the key regular exhibitors in Hall 6 is German lightweight plastics manufacturer Pöppelmann. The Lohne-based company is renowned for its so-called K-TECH® Check process, which involves a comprehensive analysis of material, construction, tool and process parameters to gauge the potential weight savings associated with changing the material of a component over from steel to plastics, for instance.
