13th September 2017
The Industry Day is dedicated to the challenges and opportunities for the compressor industry both nationally and internationally.
Representatives from the industry will talk about their companies and how they are responding to changes in technology or market demands, such as those due to economic, environmental or legislative changes. Seven talks have been selected for presentation from the companies in the United States of America, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Romania and the United Kingdom. These cover wide range of topics including design and manufacture of screw compressors, piston compressors, lubrication, sealing and materials issues.
Each presentation will last for 30 minutes which includes time for presentation and questions. Presentations are grouped in three consecutive sessions. Discussion forums will follow presentations in each session, and we expect that these will generate large interest and open discussion on issues important for the industry and academia.
In parallel with the sessions on the Industry day, participants will be able to visit the Conference Exhibition which comprises eleven exhibitors presenting their latest products and services. Exhibition, Industry day and technical sessions will offer great opportunity for networking and developing collaborations.
