Thermo process technology is not merely essential for a large number of the major areas of industry – it is more than just that: it plays a crucial role in determining the properties of individual products and all industrial manufacturing operations.
Messe Stuttgart and the German-Slovakian Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK Slowakei) are jointly organising the event "LASYS meets Central Europe“ for the first time from 30 to 31 May 2017. This event will focus on laser applications for the automobile industry and will be held in Trnava in Slovakia. It will bring together suppliers of laser production systems, laser-specific machine sub-systems, components, processes and services, and industrial users.
Ten months before DeburringEXPO opens its doors for the second time, occupied net exhibition floor space has already surpassed the results obtained at the premiere event in 2015 by 36%. This significant growth demonstrates that the trade fair for deburring technology and precision surface finishing, taking place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from 10 to 12 October 2017, is already considered the industry meeting place by industry suppliers. The presentations held at the expert forum which accompanies DeburringEXPO will be interpreted simultaneously at the upcoming event (German – English). Trade fair promoters fairXperts GmbH & Co. KG are thus doing justice to growing international requirements for know-how dealing with deburring and the production of precision surface finishes.
Modern design for a modern production environment: the dosing furnace Westomat Plus+ was awarded the prestigious “Good Design Award” of the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design. In everyday foundry work, the new system not only has a smaller footprint – it also consumes less energy. The manufacturer of industrial furnaces StrikoWestofen (Gummersbach, Germany) designed the Westomat Plus+ to combine functionality with an attractive outer appearance. “We want to help foundries to create production facilities which meet today’s employee and customer demands with regard to working environment, quality and sustainability. The new Westomat Plus+ is one more step in the direction of our ‘Green Foundry’ initiative,” StrikoWestofen manager Rudi Riedel explains.
Now more than ever, selecting the suitable procedure for attaching connection elements to tube ends is essential for economical machining processes. This is because geometries are becoming more and more complex and the pressure of remaining cost efficient is increasing significantly.
Production flexibility, cost-efficiency and sustainability both in regard to products and production processes are focal points during the construction of lightweight bodies for motor vehicles. Innovative laser joining technologies are almost predestined for this task since they can be used to produce highly durable lightweight structures cost-effectively.
Der Auftragseingang verzeichnete im November 2015 ein Minus von -3 Prozent (bundesweit +6 Prozent). Bei der Inlandsnachfrage gab es ein Minus von -4 Prozent (bundesweit +9 Prozent). Das Auslandsgeschäft lag bei -2 Prozent (bundesweit +4 Prozent) im Vergleich zum Vorjahresniveau.
The Federal Association of the Glass Industry (Bundesverband Glasindustrie e.V.) has elected Dr. Frank Heinricht, Chairman of the Board at Schott AG, for its new president. This means he will also take office as president for glasstec 2016.
Magnesium infused with dense silicon carbide nanoparticles could be used for airplanes, cars, mobile electronics and more.
"LASYS meets…" is the motto with which Messe Stuttgart wants to strengthen the theme of laser technology on a global level within the framework of the LASYS trade fair. After the start with "LASYS meets AMB China" in October 2015, now it will be "LASYS meets Turkey" on 31 March 2016. For that's the date on which the international trade fair for laser material processing will hold its "Automotive" theme day in Istanbul.
Laser marking systems can be simply integrated, are easy to operate and mark objects in readable form for machines - in spite of reflecting surfaces.
Roughly 4 months remain before PaintExpo opens its doors for the 6th time. But it’s already becoming apparent that the world’s leading trade fair for coating technology will be bigger than ever in 2016. With more than 135,000 square feet, overall net exhibition floor space has already exceeded the level achieved at the 2014 event. The exhibition programme covers the areas of liquid painting, powder coating and coil coating from pre-treatment right on up to quality control and packaging. The 6th PaintExpo will take place at the exhibition centre in Karlsruhe from the 19th through the 22nd of April, 2016.
GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST are switching to a three-year cycle – the next time that the leading international trade fairs for foundry technology, metallurgy, thermo process equipment and castings will be taking place in Düsseldorf is from Tuesday, 26. to Saturday, 30. June 2018.
“PaintExpo Eurasia is developing very well and has become more professional this year” – this is the conclusion arrived at by nearly all of the exhibitors at the third trade fair for industrial coating technology.
