In response to the rising infection figures, ebm‑papst has decided not to exhibit live at the SPS – Smart Production Solutions automation trade fair in Nuremberg this year. This ensures a responsible approach to the pandemic and serves to protect visitors and the company’s own staff.

Acting responsibly – even in a pandemic
“We are of the opinion that a mass event like a trade fair cannot be held responsibly in the current situation where case numbers are soaring. Acting with foresight has so far led us and our employees through the pandemic without any major harm, and we want to ensure that this remains the case in the future,” commented Martin Schulz, Sales Director at ebm‑papst Germany.

Digital highlights on the event platform
The ventilation and drive technology specialist will now be presenting its smart and innovative solutions on its expanded digital event platform “SPS Hall” at: In addition to new applications and products, visitors can also expect fascinating technology and product presentations on demand. SPS Hall will be accessible at any time from 9 a.m. (CET) on Tuesday, November 23, 2021. Those interested can register from today.

ebm‑papst is also offering additional low-threshold discussion opportunities. For appointment requests and more information, visit Interested parties who had already made on-site appointments are welcome to get in touch with their known contacts or, alternatively, attend the scheduled appointments digitally. The two presentations, on the new generation of the RadiPac centrifugal fan and the new ArgoDrive driving/steering system for automated guided vehicles, will take place as planned on the trade fair’s digital platform “SPS on air”.

Pioneering solutions also in the digital spotlight
In the digital environment, for example on the event platform, the focus remains on innovative solutions for drive and ventilation technology.
With this latest generation of the RadiPac series, ebm‑papst has once again succeeded in significantly improving the centrifugal fan. Higher speeds deliver higher pressures and more air flow, so that even high-pressure applications can be covered while at the same time significantly increasing efficiencies.
Efficiency also plays a crucial role one size smaller, in the case of compact fans. They meet this requirement through the aerodynamic design of the housing and fan impeller along with innovative motor technologies. The DiaForce smart diagonal fan, for example, has been specially developed for applications with high availability requirements, such as in data centers. The AxiForce axial compact fan is suitable for applications with high back pressure, such as those found in variable frequency drives and robot controllers.
AGVs are now indispensable in many warehouses, distribution centers, and production facilities. Omnidirectional systems, such as the new ArgoDrive driving/steering system from ebm‑papst, enable the automated guided vehicles to perform any maneuvers while transporting up to two tons in weight.

On its digital event platform, ebm-papst will be presenting solutions for both drive technology and ventilation technology.
