KARLSRUHE, Germany – Digitalization, individualization and climate protection are megatrends that represent challenges for coating shops and companies with in-house painting operations. With roughly 500 exhibitors already registered at the end of December 2019, the upcoming PaintExpo will offer an unparalleled range of solutions for the global coating industry. The expo will take place April 21-24, 2020, in Karlsruhe, Germany. The exhibition portfolio of the world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technologies covers all process sequences for liquid and UV painting, as well as powder coating and coil coating.

PaintExpo is the world’s only information and procurement platform for industrial painting technology that covers a broad range of applications and tasks. At the end of 2019, roughly 500 companies from 26 countries had already booked their booth floor space for the event. With approximately 16,000 square meters of net exhibition floor space, more than all of the exhibition floor space occupied at the event in 2018 has already been reserved. The industry sector’s global players will be on hand, as will its innovative small and mid-sized companies.

“Attention will of course also be focused on automation and digitalization solutions for painting processes at the upcoming PaintExpo. In the meantime, it’s no longer just a question of automating individual coating steps, but rather of networking the process chain,” said Jürgen Haußmann, Managing Director of event promoter FairFair GmbH.

PaintExpo’s complete exhibition program covers coating equipment for liquid, powder, UV, immersion and coil processes; paints and enamels for all processes; application systems; spray guns and atomisers; automation and conveyor technology; cleaning and pre-treatment; drying and curing; environmental technology; pneumatics; compressed air supply and exhaust purification; water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, masking; measuring and test technology; quality assurance; identification; paint stripping; job-shop coating; services; and technical literature.
