Without valves, we’d all be at standstill. On the streets, by rail, in the air and even in space: With the help of valves, people and goods can be transported to their destinations, even over the longest routes. As part of a plant, fittings are crucial for almost all manufacturing processes.

Sustainability meets digitalisation
The automotive and machine engineering sectors are the biggest users of fittings and valves in the world. Both sectors are undergoing drastic change at the moment. While valves are being done away with along with fuel systems, electric vehicles are ensuring that numerous valves are still being used in the automotive sector. Digitalisation has assured another leap in development: self-driving cars are more than just a vision of the future right now. An entire range of fittings is also needed for machine and plant construction. This is true for a wide variety of applications with manual, electric, hydraulic or pneumatic drives. We are also seeing more and more fittings which are combined with digital elements in order to enable efficient control. Discover all this and more at the VALVE WORLD EXPO.
