Process automation, pneumatic systems, eco-friendly exhaust-air cleaning systems. They’re all integral to tomorrow’s smart factories, and they all depend on advanced vacuum-air and compressor solutions. Compressed-air and vacuum systems are so vital to so many areas of technology that there can be no energy-efficient, sustainable production without them. These days, manufacturers of compressors and vacuum pumps tend to be one-stop providers of a whole range of services. Which is why ComVac is such a broad-based show, spanning all aspects of vacuum and compressed-air technology, from systems for generating, treating and distributing compressed and vacuum air, to applications for using it in production plant and machinery, right through to contracting offerings and services.
