euroTECH's modular designed eT-Hover-allround is a practical, versatile lifting device. With a relatively low weight of 85 kg, the equipment can handle loads of up to 500 kg and is capable of horizontal and vertical lifting, swivelling, rotating around 360 degrees, as well as any combination of these types of movements. All movements can be controlled precisely and intuitively with the ergonomically designed control unit. The name "allround" relates to the extensive functionality of the lifting device as well to euroTECH's breath of performance.

Messe Düsseldorf expands international portfolio of trade fairs for the plastics and rubber industry
From pharmaceuticals, chemicals and foodstuffs to glass, construction materials and paper: every 18 months the POWTECH trade fair offers these key industrial segments a unique overview of the latest developments in mechanical processing technology. From 19 to 21 April 2016, international industry experts will once again have the opportunity to share know-how with their peers and forge new business contacts. PARTEC, the International Congress for Particle Technology held concurrently with the show, attracts scientists and engineers from all over the world to the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre.
Nothing matches a personal talk if you want to make contacts and obtain the latest information from the sector. Even in the digital age, this hasn’t changed: a fair is a place for meeting people, and you go there to see what’s new. This is the conclusion drawn by the StrikoWestofen Group (Gummersbach) after five days of the GIFA 2015, in which the manufacturer was sometimes overwhelmed by the deluge of interested persons. The market leader for melting, holding and dosing furnaces for lightweight metal casting presented dozens of innovations in Düsseldorf. The new “Westomat Plus+” with its optimized technology and its revised design as well as the pneumatic transport and filling system “Schnorkle” were two special highlights. Managing Director Rudi Riedel was very gratified by the reactions of those visiting the booth: “The large sums we have invested in research and development since the last GIFA four years ago were the right strategy. Now we can offer our customers products which meet the considerably higher demands of foundries in an optimum way.”
There have been fixed standards regulating technical cleanliness inspections of component parts in the automotive industry for over a decade . These are codified in the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA) vol. 19.1. So that companies can inspect components in accordance with policy, laboratory managers should be qualified “Technical Cleanliness Inspectors”. To this end, Fraunhofer IPA has been offering the required training for over ten years now. Given that demand abroad has risen substantially on account of the unabated globalization of automotive industry, English-speaking instruction seminars for trainers will take place in future. They will be trained as “Technical Cleanliness Tutors”.
More precise cut edges, less cutting force and therefore a longer tool life: cutting folded sheets with ultrasound technology makes all this a tangible reality. A joint cooperation project conducted by Fraunhofer IPA and bielomatik GmbH came to this preliminary result. A follow-up project is to verify the suitability of the innovation for industrial applications. Scientists are still on the look-out for companies interested in participating.
Latest developments in high performance composite matrix resins, binders and release agents, composite adhesives, process know-how and engineering, will be presented by Henkel in the Composites Forum at the Composites Europe exhibition at the Messe Stuttgart on September 23. Henkel will place a strong emphasis on its expertise in developing cost-effective solutions for automotive structural components, such as lightweight leaf springs produced using high-pressure resin transfer molding, HP-RTM.
DMG MORI has been defining a standard for users of powerful entry-level machines for many years with the ECOLINE product range. This also applies to the new generation of the ecoMill V series. The range consists of a series of machining centres that can accommodate workpieces weighing 600 kg, 800 kg and 1000 kg respectively in the form of the ecoMill 600 V, ecoMill 800 V and ecoMill 1100 V with the traverse X – axis of 600 mm, 800 mm and 1100 mm accordingly to the machines size. The highlight of the latest ecoMill V series is the completely revised ECOLINE New Design, by means of which DMG MORI has improved working ergonomics and achieved a high degree of value stability. The new 19" DMG MORI Multi-Touch SLIMline® Control* with SIEMENS is the next step for innovative and modern user interface.
AVEVA today announced that, following a rigorous competitive evaluation, Kværner Verdal AS has selected AVEVA Bocad Steel™ and AVEVA Bocad Offshore™ for use at its design and fabrication yard in Verdal, Norway. Kværner required a specialised structural steel design solution that provided out-of-the box functionality and powerful integration.
Electronics.Production.Augmented.—that is the motto of a special show that is part of productronica in November 2015. The world's leading trade fair for electronics development and production will focus on the hot topic of Industry 4.0 from a new perspective: visitors will experience the hidden processes machines and workpieces negotiate in production and how workers profit from Industry 4.0—with the help of augmented and virtual reality on five selected electronics production machines.
At the 12th edition of the Blechexpo international trade fair for sheet metal processing and the 5th edition of the Schweisstec international trade fair for joining technologies, the practice-oriented trade fair duo is continuing its successful development at a very high, process-sequence level.
Nach Artikel 33 der Europäischen Chemikalienverordnung »REACH« ist der Lieferant eines Erzeugnisses verpflichtet, gewerbliche Abnehmer über besonders Besorgnis erregende Stoffe (SVHC - Substances of very high concern) in ihren Produkten unmittelbar zu informieren, sofern deren Konzentration größer als 0,1 Masseprozent im Erzeugnis übersteigt.

Under the lead of the Tübingen-based Max Planck Institute for Biological Cybernetics (MPI), Fraunhofer IPA has co-developed a new cable-driven parallel robot that is the first one capable of transporting humans while at the same time setting new standards in terms of workspace, acceleration and payload for a motion simulator. The scientists have thus succeeded in decisively advancing a technology previously used for automation solutions in the field of intralogistics. On 16 September 2015, MPI will unveil the motion simulator to the public at the Driving Simulation Conference & Exhibition (DSC2015) in Tübingen.
