Scandinavian Coating Exhibition
71 exhibiting companies from 8 countries and 2,039 unique visitors: these are the figures from this year’s Scandinavian Coating Fair which took place on 29-30 May 2013 at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre in Gothenburg.
Graco was one of those 71 exhibiting companies at the Scandinavian Exhibition for Surface Treatment in Gothenburg Sweden, also known as the Scandinavian Coating Exhibition.
At this fair, Graco introduced the E-Flo™ DC for the first time: a new paint re-circulation pump with an electrical motor for medium sized systems. Due to the electrical motor in the E-Flo DC, energy is saved which results in cost savings and improved productivity. Among the new products was the Pro Xp™ electrostatic gun, an ergonomic, light and small spray gun. The Pro XP gun has an excellent spray performance with high transfer efficiency and reduced material usage. Many demonstrations at customers sites were performed with this product during the first quarter and more demos are planned for Graco’s existing clients and new customers interested in the new technology.
Graco’s best known product in the market and the main attraction at the fair was the Mini Merkur™ ES thanks to its small size, limited material required to start and quick rinsing.
The fair was a huge success for both exhibitors and visitors. “It felt like a really good fair with crowded alleys and plenty of people in the booths”, said Björn Delin at Nice Events Scandinavia, who organized Scandinavian Coating with the Scandinavian trade associations SPF, MAB and NPLF.
“I’m very pleased with the outcome”, said Henrik Söröd at SPF (Svensk Pulverlackteknisk Förening), who was responsible for organising the conference programme at Scandinavian Coating. “A lot of people came to the seminars, the speakers were happy and the exhibitors I managed to speak to also seemed very satisfied.”
The organizers will soon announce dates and a venue for Scandinavian Coating 2015.
