Exhibitor registration for interpack 2026 Processing & Packaging is now open online at The deadline for reserving exhibit space is February 28, 2025. The trade fair will be held from May 7 – 13, 2026 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany. interpack 2023 exhibitors can use their past access data to log in and register. First-time exhibitors will be guided step-by-step through the registration process.

 A special feature at interpack 2026 will again be theUSA Pavilion is organized and produced by Messe Düsseldorf North America. It provides its participants with an all-inclusive turnkey package that features a fully furnished booth, access to an exhibitor lounge area (with daily snack and beverage service) and the on-site services of a project manager, hosts, and roaming interpreters. To reserve exhibit space within the U.S. Pavilion, contact Ryan Klemm at Messe Düsseldorf North America:, Tel.  (312) 621-5832.

 From start-ups to global corporations: no business is too small or too large to be part of this unique event. In 2026, interpack will continue to bring together the global processing and packaging industry and become a driving force for the industry's future topics.

 For seven days, the entire value chain of the industry will be represented – from packaging machinery and processing technology, packaging supplies, packaging materials and packaging aids to the production of packaging supplies, converting and printed packaging, marking technology and labelling as well as warehousing, logistics and transport technology. There will be products and services for all user industries: food, beverage, confectionery and bakery, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods.

Last year, 2,809 exhibitors from 61 countries took part in interpack and the concurrently held components trade fair (for the suppliers’ sector). 95% of the companies plan to come back. This is also due to the fact that interpack is always about  “big business”: 82% of the visitors are from the top management and are involved in investment decisions.

The waiting list for the world's largest trade fair in the industry is usually long, so early booking is recommended. Exhibitors are now able to register online and reserve their stand.  All halls will be available again.

Alpena, MI (March 2024) – Meeting high demands is an inherent challenge no matter the industry, however, commercial bakeries in particular face unique challenges when it comes to handling products. Handling equipment must meet regulatory and safety standards and not just any solution will do. Triton Innovation, LLC’s leading expertise in manufacturing and supplying equipment for a broad range of food handling and processing applications caught the attention of a commercial bakery.

This bakery was experiencing product loss due to conveyance related handling problems. English muffins were exiting the oven and heading for packaging—where clustering was preventing proper product laning for the packaging line, increasing waste. English muffins would also fall to the floor, resulting in costly product loss.

After hearing this commercial baker’s struggles, Triton engineered a custom Belt Conveyor using FDA approved modular plastic belting equipped with Funneling Guides, Lane Diverters, and Stainless Steel Sideguides. Funneling Guides and Lane Diverters enabled smooth, orderly product transition from clusters into two single file lanes and made airflow access to each English muffin possible. This improved conveyance solution organized the product for packaging and provided proper cooling before arriving to the packaging line. Finally, Stainless Steel Sideguides kept the English muffins on the conveyor and off the floor!

Modular Plastic Belts are sprocket-driven and are made up of individual modules, interlocked by hinge rods. If a section of the belt were to become damaged, rather than losing time and money to repair an entire belt, modules can be removed for rapid, cost-effective replacement. To top it off, plastic belts are easy to clean and require very little maintenance. Optional features allow great versatility for Belt Conveyors and can be added to best suit a handful of food applications.

Triton’s conveyors are customized to be as unique as the customer’s operation. Discover more about this solution by visiting and other food handling solutions by visiting You can also check out this solution on LinkedIn.



The system supplier Aprotec from Karlstadt in Bavaria is a specialist for modern, customised solutions in automation, process plant and leak testing technology. The team of around 30 engineers and technicians offers customers from the automotive and semiconductor industry, mechanical engineering and vacuum technology portfolio – from the idea to the turnkey system.

Leybold expertise secures knowledge advantage
To achieve this, Aprotec relies on the products and the expertise of Leybold. This collaboration goes deep into areas of application where experience is important. Managing Director Michael Landgraf: "It is precisely on this knowledge is the basis of our specialisation advantage over our competitors. Our positioning in the niche ensures not least that. we can react quickly to customer requirements."

Aprotec is therefore a system supplier that offers its customers turnkey systems for customised applications. As a result these are specially designed for processes and their process environments, such as vacuum, overpressure, temperature or gases – from laboratory scale to industrial production. Aprotec's strategic goal, however, is to go into series production.

The company is managed by Michael Landgraf and Matthias Roth. The founders, who started their own business in 2015, have been working in the vacuum industry – in process, testing and automotive technology.

Their customers rely on established methods, such as helium leak testing. The proven leak detectors PHOENIX Quadro and PHOENIX Vario with their high detection sensitivities play an important role. In addition to fuel cells, components, transmission and engine components, pharma packaging and battery housings are tested.

The high-tech systems from Aprotec are designed for short cycle times, low tolerances and a high level of safety. This requires high-quality materials and a great deal of engineering expertise are necessary. The solutions are therefore experts with decades of application application knowledge – such as for high-temperature systems for the semiconductor industry. In addition to the expertise, it is also used in crystal systems in which the ingots for silicon wafers are produced, the use of the best vacuum pumps – because it is elementary here, to be oxygen-free and to be able to set particle pressures precisely.

Leybold has a high level of experience with crystal pulling processes and can also supply the vacuum pumps suitable for this purpose. The VARODRY dry screw pump is not only attractively priced, but also completely oil-free. Thanks to its toothed belt drive, it works without gear oil so that there is no risk of contamination due to oil backflow from the vacuum pump to the vacuum chamber.

Q&A with Michael Landgraf, Managing Director aprotec

What characterises your systems?
In our division testing technology, where we primarily use helium leak testing, we develop systems that push the limits of what is technically feasible. This is where most other suppliers reach their limits.

Which detection limits are they exactly?
We test in measuring ranges up to 10-10 mbar l/s or at test gas pressures of up to pressures of up to 1500 bar. Recently we have put a leak test system for fittings into operation with a test gas pressure of 1500 bar and a detection limit of 10-7 mbar l/s. Implemented in this is a PHOENIX Quadro and a Leybold NEO D rotary vane pump.

Why did you choose in favour of products from Leybold?
Because of the good performance of the products and the great expertise and the good advice from Leybold.

Where do you currently see particularly good opportunities in the market?
In testing technology, especially in applications with hydrogen and fuel cells. For some industries, such as semiconductors, we can supply both the testing systems and the semiconductor equipment.

Why is Leybold the right partner?
Our contacts are experts with decades of application knowledge - especially in the field of leak testing. On this basis, we can offer systems that are not yet available on the market, for example in hydrogen technology. This is how we will assert ourselves in this market.
