With its vacuum innovations for laboratory technology, analytics, and biotechnology, Leybold is participating in this year’s Analytica from 19 to 23 October. The special feature — This year, the trade fair will be held purely virtually – as Analytica Virtual. This premiere offers a platform for all exhibitors and visitors who would have refrained from participating due to the present global situation. To reach interested parties from all over the world, the exhibition will be accessible around the clock on all five days.

Leybold, based in Cologne, is part of the Swedish industry group Atlas Copco. The company’s core competencies are based on the development of components and systems for the generation of vacuum and gas management engineering. The company also has a sales and service office at Pune, India.

Vacuum technology is the core element in many analytical, research, and laboratory facilities. Today, ergonomic, oil-free vacuum solutions that save energy and enable optimized data evaluation are in demand. Suitable vacuum components are an essential factor in the efficiency of running processes.

The product family of dry compressing Roots vacuum pumps Ecodry plus is extended. Leybold’s innovation is celebrating its premiere at Analytica — Leybold has extended its product family of dry compressing multi-stage Roots vacuum pumps Ecodry plus for laboratory, research, and development as well as analytical applications. The Ecodry 40 and 65 plus versions are now joined by the new smaller pump sizes Ecodry 25 and 35 plus. With the completion of these ergonomic, low-maintenance, economical, and completely oil-free backing pumps, Leybold is closing a gap in its portfolio. “The pump is compact in its design, low-vibration, powerful, easy to operate and quiet,” summarizes product manager Alexander Kaiser.

New members of the Turbovac i/iX series: sizes 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX

The vacuum specialist Leybold’s trade fair portfolio includes product presentations, brochures, videos, and lectures – including the Turbovac i/iX series, which has been expanded to include the new sizes 850 i/iX and 950 i/iX. The two new turbomolecular pumps are characterized by long, trouble-free operating times and lower operating costs. They are used in research and development applications where a clean and stable high and ultra-high vacuum is required – such as in analysis, thin-film research, or helium recovery. In vacuum systems with limited installation space and little room for the vacuum pumps, the Turbovac i/iX variants offer maximum flexibility and can be mounted in any orientation.

High-vacuum plug & play pumping stations

The devices of the Turbolab series are plug-and-play high vacuum pumping systems. They offer a wide range of variants — The systems are compact, fully assembled, and can be put into operation immediately. Different configurations cover the special vacuum requirements of the R & D markets and analytical applications. The oil-free hybrid bearing of the Turbovac i/iX turbopumps and the choice of different dry-compressing backing pumps enable hydrocarbon-free operation. These compact pump systems are delivered fully assembled and ready for operation. They include a turbomolecular pump, a backing pump, and an innovative TPU display unit.

The measurement technology associated with vacuum technology is essential for evaluating processes from basic research to industrial manufacturing. Leybold offers suitable measuring instruments, sensors, and components for this purpose.

Measure – Analyze – Optimize

Turbolab systems can be equipped with Thermovac TTR fore-vacuum gauges and Penningvac PTR high vacuum sensors. Connected sensors are recognized, and pressure readings are automatically shown on display.

All critical parameters and operating conditions such as faults, warnings, frequency, temperature are automatically recorded in an internal memory based on a standard time interval and can be adjusted by the user directly on site. An integrated web server allows remote control, monitoring, and configuration of the Turbolab devices from the mobile device or the computer via a browser.

Leybold’s vacuum measurement sensors offer innovation in numerous applications from 2000 to 10 to 12 mbar. These instruments offer higher precision, an extended measuring range, improved reproducibility, and process stability. They complement the portfolio with new types of interfaces and additional ranges for use in lock chambers.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
