Energy savings, automatic processes and security are the most convincing arguments worldwide.
Is there any way to enhance the technical properties of contemporary quality insulation glass, i.e. its Ug value, light transmission and sound absorption? Several major forums are currently discussing the limits of feasibility and realism. The good news is that there is no shortage of ideas. But what will prove to be feasible in the future?
The Glass Forum contains the glass-processing branch of the LiSEC Group. The 70-members team processes economically flat glass and thus builds up its machine manufacturing expertise. Among its orders are truly interesting projects, for example, manufacture of the ‘petals’ of the smartflower.
After the conclusion of the trade fair, exhibitors and trade visitors delivered a positive summary of the WORLD OF ENERGY SOLUTIONS. Around 3,000 visitors exchanged ideas and attended 165 presentations on future-focused technologies. Stuttgart hosted companies, research institutes, delegations, exhibitors and visitors from a total of 30 countries.
WORLD OF ENERGY SOLUTIONS covers the entire value creation chain in the BATTERY+STORAGE exhibition area.
For advanced environmental protection and workplace safety: the Chinese Government has initiated various measures designed to curb China’s high air pollution. Many foundries are affected by the new regulations too – but not the customers of StrikoWestofen Asia (Taicang). This is because melting furnaces and dosing furnaces made by the StrikoWestofen Group fall significantly below even the new maximum permissible limits for energy consumption and dust emissions.
At METEC, Symeo GmbH will be presenting components and system solutions for reliable, continuous crane and vehicle positioning, distance measurement and anti-collision in the steel industry. The robust radio-based Symeo technology is especially designed for the use under difficult weather and environment conditions like dirt, dust, steam, smoke, vibrations and extreme temperatures.
The OE-A published the sixth edition of its roadmap at LOPEC. It describes key trends and key challenges for printed electronics technology. It is obvious, that hybrid systems will experience the most significant development in the short and medium term.
The Nobel Prize for Göttingen-based researcher Stefan Hell and his STED microscopy was a milestone in the microscopic exploration of the nanoworld. Lasers, switchable fluorescent markers and imaging techniques provide profound insights into living cells. Lasers are al-ready in the process of revolutionizing medical research, diagnostics and therapy. Biophotonics and medical engineering will again be center stage at the LASER World of PHOTONICS from 22-25 June at the Messe München site.
2014 második negyedévében a német szerszámgépipar megrendelés állománya 1 százalékkal volt magasabb az egy évvel korábban mért értéktől. Az előző évhez képest a hazai megrendelések 16%-kal emelkedtek, míg az export 7%-kal csökkent. Az év első felét tekintve a megrendelés állomány 6%-kal haladta meg az év/év alapon mért bázist. A hazai megrendelések 18%-kal nőttek, a külföldi kereslet pedig 1%-kal zsugorodott.
Integrated machine safety: The study of mechatronics includes mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, telecommunication engineering, control engineering, and computer engineering. Original equipment manufacturers need to manage the design process, integrate safety, and recognize mechatronic trends to stay ahead of the technology curve.
Prologis, Inc., the leading global owner, operator and developer of industrial real estate, announced today that Prologis Park Budapest-Sziget DC1 has successfully passed the “BREAM In-Use” audit, scoring a “very good” certification. The 10,755-square metre facility is the first industrial building in Hungary to receive this certificate.

Building on success achieved in 2011, Deutsche Messe will invest in further growth and in the development of the Hannover Exhibition Center. During its meeting in Hannover on Thursday, June 28, the Supervisory Board laid the groundwork for the rebuilding of halls 19 and 20, as well as for several acquisitions in Germany and abroad.
Europe recorded a record-breaking year for solar photovoltaic (PV) power projects in 2011 but its dominance at the top of the world's global solar sector will be challenged in the coming years.
As windfarms and solar parks are brought online to help meet renewable energy requirements, power transmission projects are necessary to deliver the power needed from the new facilities and to the new areas. Industrial Info's Power Industry Project Database currently shows 54 power transmission projects that are scheduled for completion this year.
BASF and Philips have achieved a practical breakthrough in the development of OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diode) technology that allows it to be integrated in car roofs. The OLEDs are transparent when switched off, allowing for a clear view outside the vehicle, yet providing light only within the vehicle when switched on.
Royal Philips Electronics and Eskom (The South African state-owned utility company) today announced the largest energy saving LED lighting deal in Africa to date. Under the agreement, 200,000 Philips MasterLED lamps are being distributed through Karebo Systems at discounted prices throughout South Africa to professional users of lighting such as hotels, banks, offices and retail outlets.
