Arburg ready for a “normal” living room https://metrolinaexpotradeshow.com/arburg-ready-for-a-normal-living-room/ Mon, 11 Oct 2021 18:56:44 +0000 https://metrolinaexpotradeshow.com/arburg-ready-for-a-normal-living-room/ Plastics news asked a wide range of questions of Hehl, who said, “We are very happy to finally be back on a show after what seems like an eternity.

Plastics news asked a wide range of questions of Hehl, who said, “We are very happy to finally be back on a show after what seems like an eternity. Nothing beats personal contacts and the innovations you can touch! “

Q: How will Arburg’s booth and its presence at trade shows compare to those at Fakumas or other major trade shows? The company brings nine machines. Is this typical for Arburg in Fakuma, or is Arburg really going to do everything to make it the first major international event for the plastics industry in Germany for 2021?

Hehl: Fakuma has always been very close to the heart of Arburg, as we have been co-founders and exhibitors from the very beginning. This year we have even enlarged our stand a little, underlining the importance of this international trade fair on Lake Constance, at least for the European plastics industry. The number of machines that we exhibit at our stand is within the usual range, although, of course, it always depends on the size of the individual machines.

Q: Did Arburg have a lot of booth meetings compared to previous years? Or, does your schedule indicate that attendance will be down?

Hehl: It is difficult to answer this question in advance, because many visitors come to our stand, even without an appointment, to discover new products and innovative applications, to meet their interlocutors in person, but also to discuss new projects. . Our top priority is to be able to provide intensive support and advice to customers and other interested parties. We are very well prepared for this and therefore we have not reduced our workforce in 2021. As usual, many employees from our international subsidiaries will also be represented at Fakuma.

Q: Has Arburg participated in many trade shows this year? Do you have any advice for visitors to Fakuma who meet people in person for the first time?

Hehl: Arburg has already participated in several shows this year, including Chinaplas, rapid + TCT, Equiplas and Interplas. However, these were moderated by the Arburg teams from the region and the visitors also came almost exclusively from these respective countries. We expect Fakuma to be the first show for us this year that has an international character.

For visitors, it is always a good idea to make an appointment with their respective Arburg contact person in order to make the best use of their precious time at the fair. The compact layout of the Friedrichshafen exhibition grounds is an advantage here.

Q: What additional measures will Arburg take to ensure the safety of employees and visitors? How many employees will be present? Is it less than in previous years? Is Arburg asking employees who frequent Fakuma to get vaccinated?

Hehl: The safety of our customers and employees is a top priority for us. This is why we have taken the precaution of playing it safe with our stand team: The 2G rule applies to the total of around 300 employees present at the show, which means that they must be vaccinated or cured of the virus. . Approximately 200 will be on the stand each day to attend to visitors. This means that we will be almost at the same level of membership as at previous Fakuma trade shows.

Q: In an earlier press release to Fakuma, you said that you expected this trade show to be a memorable one for visitors to the Arburg booth. Why is that?

Hehl: Visitors can expect an impressive program. Our participation in the fair will be dominated by arburgXworld and arburgGREENworld, i.e. by the themes of digitization, sustainability and resource conservation. At Fakuma 2021, we will bring together the best of both worlds, demonstrating our commitment to the goal of increasing the production efficiency of our customers, while preparing them sustainably for the future!

At arburgGREENworld we will present, among other things, our new recycling package by transforming bio-based products [nylon] 12 and using different marking technologies to allow the separation of plastic products by resin type.

At arburgXworld, we will be showcasing new apps and features for our customer portal, as well as new support functions for our Gestica control system. Another important focus of Fakuma is the Arburg planetary roller screw drive for electric molding machines. And last but not least: The premiere of our new Allrounder More multi-component machine series will also be very interesting.

Q: What did the marketing machines look like during a pandemic? Did most of the clients come to you or did Arburg have to do special marketing?

Hehl: Our approach to serving our customers has not changed significantly due to the pandemic. We came up with a complete hygiene concept including testing opportunities, so that customers could always visit us, if the legal requirements of the confinements allowed, of course. We have also used all digital options to keep in touch with our customers. Thanks to our pioneering role in digitization, we were and are very well positioned in this regard.

The key words in this context are our arburgXworld customer portal, the Arburg remote service or remote machine acceptance. When it comes to digital formats, we have always believed, and still are, that they must offer customers and interested parties real added value. Our new how-to videos and our interactive arburgXvision Internet TV format are examples of this.

Q: How successful are the ArburgXvision livestreams and will they continue after the pandemic?

Hehl: ArburgXvision was a flagship project. We’re happy with the response we’ve received to this interactive Internet TV format, and yet it’s safe to say: digital doesn’t beat staff.

Q: What are you most looking forward to in Fakuma?

Hehl: We are very happy to finally be back on a show after what seems like an eternity. Nothing beats the personal contacts and innovations you can touch.

Q: What will make Fakuma a successful event for Arburg? Is it just a success to be a part of a large trade show in person? Is this a return to a new normal?

Hehl: We are very excited. We are doing everything we can to make him as normal a Fakuma as possible, and we will be very happy if that is successful. After all, normalcy would be something very special these days. We are sure that this fair will have important influences on the future.

Q: How was 2021 for Arburg? Does medicine remain strong and the automobile is coming back?

Hehl: We are extremely happy with the order intake this year.

Medical technology remains strong and we see clear indications that the auto industry is recovering

Q: Is the United States still Arburg’s biggest export market? What are the current dynamics of the plastics industry and economy in the United States? Can you tell which are the next biggest export markets?

Hehl: The United States remains our strongest foreign market. This has been an important pillar for us during the difficult times of 2019/2020. Business there has always been and continues to be good. As already mentioned, we are very satisfied with the taking of orders over the last few months and this all over the world. In Europe, after Germany, Italy remains our biggest market.

Q: Arburg started 2021 by acquiring its development partner for more than 20 years, AMK Arnold Müller GmbH & Co. KG in order to strengthen its expertise and portfolio of electric drives. What has happened since? Will this partnership be on display at Fakuma?

Hehl: The company is now called AMKmotion and operates independently, as a sister company. We do not explicitly present this partnership to Fakuma, as the focus in Friedrichshafen is on the processing of plastics with the corresponding machine exhibitions and applications. When it comes to drives, the exception is that we will draw attention to our planetary roller screw drive for which we now offer a five-year warranty.

Q: In 2020, Arburg purchased RepRap GmbH, a German manufacturer of 3D printing systems for liquid silicone rubber and other materials. What was interesting about this technology given that Arburg developed the Freeformer? How are the technologies complementary?

Hehl: The company is now called innovatiQ and its unique liquid additive manufacturing (LAM) technology is an ideal complement to the Arburg free-forming (AFP) process. This additive manufacturing technology is of interest to our injection molding customers who already process LSR with Allrounders and for our AFP customers who wish to extend their range of materials to liquid silicone rubbers.

Q: In June, Arburg opened a prototype center in Shanghai and fitted it with four Freeformer brand machines to produce reference parts through additive manufacturing. Did this technology, presented by Arburg at K2013, live up to expectations?

Hehl: In terms of content and technology, we are very satisfied with the Freeformer and are working with partners and clients on exciting projects in the medical technology and automotive industries. We still have room for improvement in terms of sales.

Q: Are there other Industry 4.0 trends that Arburg is helping to advance?

Hehl: Arburg is regarded in the industry as a pioneer in the field of digitization with around 40 years of experience. The same goes for the themes of resource conservation and sustainability, which are firmly embedded in our DNA. These two programs, for example, are essential to our involvement in the R-Cycle initiative, of which we are the exclusive machine partner.

Q: Arburg scored well above the plastics industry average in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) assessment. The company said it plans to work on the shows next. Have you set a goal? What steps will Arburg take to reduce carbon emissions?

Hehl: We have long focused intensely on the issue of CO2 emissions and their reduction. The high priority we give to this issue is demonstrated, for example, by the fact that we have created the post of Head of Sustainable Development as a staff post. To list all of our many activities would take us well beyond the scope of this interview. For those who would like to know more, I recommend our sustainability report, which can be viewed on our website in the arburgGREENworld section

Q: Would you like to add something?

Hehl: I would like to conclude by stressing, once again, that we would all like nothing more than to be able to say on Saturday: It was a completely normal Fakuma!

Canadian participation in a Chinese seafood fair next month will be hampered by quarantine requirements related to COVID-19, not China’s treatment of the two Michael’s, Victoria Co-operative chief executive said. Fisheries.

Thirty-three Canadian seafood companies, industry associations and governments are participating in the China Fisheries and Seafood Expo in the port city of Qingdao, north of Shanghai. Most of the Canadian representation will come from Chinese representatives.

Nova Scotia shellfish exporter Victoria Co-operative Fisheries will have a stand, but general manager Osborne Burke says the company will not be there.

“There are too many challenges with that,” he said. “And the recommendation from government officials was to bring in internal consultants to represent your company at the show, and that’s exactly why we do what we do. It’s the best case scenario we can do and still beat the flag for Nova Scotia. “

Two federal departments – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and Fisheries and Oceans – are registered for a booth in the Canadian pavilion, as are several provincial governments, including British Columbia, Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador.

Lobster is a major export from Nova Scotia, with shipments to China valued at $ 457 million in 2019. (The Associated Press)

China’s treatment of the recently released Michael Kovrig and Michael Spavor has not stopped Canada’s $ 1 billion seafood exports to its second largest market.

The frigid relationship caused by their detention also did not deter participation in the upcoming Canadian Seafood Conference, which will be held as part of the exhibition, event organizer Yang said. Xue of the Atlantic Canada Business Network, based in Bedford, Nova Scotia.

British Columbia and Quebec have signed for the second year of the event.

Provincial fisheries ministers, including Nova Scotia’s Steve Craig, provided pre-recorded messages for the conference, Xue said. The same is true of representatives of Canadian industry, such as Ocean Choice International and the Lobster Council of Canada.

“The event is getting better and stronger and sending a very positive message to the market by promoting our seafood in the right way,” said Xue. “This is why the conferences continue to attract more and more provinces and companies to join us.

Yang Xue is an organizer of the Canada Seafood Conference, which is being held as part of the upcoming Qingdao China Expo. (SRC)

China has become an increasingly important market for Canada’s main seafood exporting province: Nova Scotia.

Live lobster shipments from Nova Scotia to China were valued at $ 457 million in 2019.

Trade in several species continued.

Victoria Co-operative crab and lobster processor has cargo on a ship bound for China. For Burke, what happened to Canadian inmates is a reality.

“You never know what can happen,” he said. “We saw that with the two Michael’s is that for some reason they suddenly decide that they need a symbolic hostage or two, it could happen.”

Robet Huish, an international development expert at Dalhousie University, said Burke was right.

Michael’s release after Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou reaches deal with US prosecutors to drop charges against her is proof that China “is not above hostage diplomacy and that everyone is a fair game, ”he said.

Seafood vulnerable to Chinese agenda, says prof

Huish said Atlantic Canadian seafood could easily be tossed overboard by China if it suited China’s interests.

“Atlantic Canadian seafood is still a luxury in China and a very limited market when you consider the population as a whole,” he said.

“They are looking to cut carbon emissions as a country and an easy way to do that would be to cancel orders for planes full of live lobster.”

The Nova Scotia Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture said it had no one available to comment on CBC News.

Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada did not respond either.

A special reduced edition of the Salone del Mobile, called Supersalone, took place from September 5 to 10 at Rho Fairgrounds in Milan.Photo: courtesy of Salone del MobileMILAN, ITALY-It had been two and a half years since crowds gathered in the showrooms of Milan for the Salone del Mobile (also known as the Milan Furniture Fair), a trade fair that is held every year in April and features Italian furniture and accessories. With 423 exhibitors, about a quarter of the usual number, a special scaled-down edition of the annual event, called Supersalone, took place September 5-10 at the city’s Rho Exhibition Center.

Given the constraints of the pandemic, the organizers rethought their old ways by designing a trade show model for the post-COVID world. The curatorial team, led by architect Stefano Boeri, “took a very different approach to Supersalone compared to our typical annual exhibition,” said Marco Sabetta, Managing Director of Salone del Mobile.Milano.

“First of all, rather than segmenting the different sectors into their own pavilions, all types of brands have been blended to create a dynamic experience for the visitor. Rather than booths you walk into, exhibitors showcased the gallery style in long rows. He added that the new layout helps promote the flow of visitor traffic and encourages social distancing.

Exhibitor booths also used less support structures and were replaced with exhibit walls that hung products on, allowing air circulation. (The structures were dismantled and recycled or composted after the fair.) This design decision was also a testament to the event’s emphasis on sustainability and the emphasis on reuse, recycling and circularity.

More than 60,000 people attended the five-day event, 30% of whom were from outside Italy, visiting from 113 countries. It was also opened to the public for the first time, with many products available for purchase, another first. In light of the ongoing pandemic and fluctuating restrictions, the event’s global draw has proven to be one of its biggest challenges. “Salone del Mobile is known to be an international hub for innovation and global design thinking,” said Sabetta. “It was difficult to envision the changes in precautions and travel rules, both for our various guests and exhibitors, as they planned to attend. “

Regarding health and safety measures, participants had to scan their ‘green passes’ (Italian version of a digital health pass) or the EU’s COVID digital certificate which showed either a series complete vaccination, that is, a negative COVID-19 test result taken within the last 48 hours. For international visitors, substitutions such as the CDC white card used in the United States have been accepted. If a participant was unable to produce a green pass or equivalent, test centers were set up outside; Sabetta noted that all tests at the fairgrounds were negative. Once there, masks were mandatory in all interior spaces; staff were on hand to enforce this rule.

The event’s programming included conversations with designers, architects, artists, academics and managers, covering topics ranging from design, art, architecture, education, circular economy, environmental impact and more, as well as film screenings that have been screened in partnership with Milano Design Film Festival. The Lost Graduation Show featured 170 projects from graduate students from design schools around the world and The Makers Show, which is a space dedicated to self-produced designers, showcased the work of workshops, studios, laboratories and start-ups.

Of course, the updated fair was also designed for in-person and virtual attendees, thanks to the new digital platform Salone del Mobile.Milano. It allowed attendees in person to view products online by scanning QR codes displayed at the fair, while online users could virtually explore the exhibits, as well as watch live broadcasts of the event’s programming.

“Our digital platform was created to make people feel as close as possible to the live Supersalone,” said Sabetta, adding that 1.5 million web pages are viewed by 90,000 users on average per day. The new Salone del Mobile.Milano TikTok account recorded more than 630,000 total views, while Instagram, Facebook, Linkedin and Twitter recorded 15 million impressions, 25,000 interactions and 50,000 video views.

The 60th edition of the Salone del Mobile is scheduled to take place April 5-10, 2022, with plans to keep some of the new “super” upgrades.

“We are delighted to return to our large format while examining ways to incorporate the dynamism of the Supersalone on a large scale,” said Sabetta. “One thing we will be focusing on at all shows going forward is incorporating more sustainable practices, just like we did at Supersalone. With Salone as a true industry leader, we hope to set an example for our partners and participants to support the earth through our own practices. “

I think it’s fair to say, just as an observation, that women and people of color are under-represented at plastics industry events. It is not say that there are systemic reasons or malicious intent in this underrepresentation – although some would argue that there is – but there is a fact, and the question we have to grapple with is, what should we do about it? The Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) is taking a bold step to start this conversation with panel discussions at upcoming Plastec and Advanced Manufacturing events hosted by Informa Markets – Engineering, which also produces Plastics Today.

Described by Informa Markets – Engineering as “an engaging mix of speeches, panel discussions, ‘TED Talk’ style sessions, audience interaction and networking opportunities,” the panel discussions will explain how top companies foster diversity, equity and inclusion (DCI) in their organizations, DCI’s business case, how to lead by becoming a change agent, etc. The first roundtable is scheduled for Advanced Manufacturing East, which includes several co-located shows, including Plastec East and Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) in New York on December 6-7, 2021. The conversation will continue in Anaheim, Calif. Advanced West Manufacturing in April 2022; Charlotte, North Carolina, in June; and Minneapolis in November.

The demographics for most plastics industry events are consistent with the most recent data from the US Census Bureau and the Department of Labor showing the composition of the workforce across manufacturing and the plastics industry in particular, said Patrick Farrey, CEO of SPE. Plastics Today. According to this data, while women make up about half of the total U.S. population, they make up 29.5 percent of the national manufacturing workforce. It should be noted that they represent a slightly higher percentage of the plastic products manufacturing workforce at 33.4%. The non-white population in the United States stands at 39.4%, but holds only 20.3% of jobs in manufacturing and 19.6% of jobs in plastics manufacturing. “This very fundamental data is consistent with the footfall demographics we see at most events in the plastics industry,” said Farrey. “The audience there is largely white men, with women and people of color being underrepresented in relation to the general population and the overall workforce.” Having this conversation, however, should not be interpreted as “taking away an opportunity from anyone,” Farrey stressed.

SPE / Canvas

“I’m old enough to remember when affirmative action was used as a weapon in the workplace, taking away job and advancement opportunities from some people and giving them to others just on the basis of the breed, ”said Farrey. Plastics Today. “Clearly that’s not it! SPE, and any organization appropriately committed to DCI principles, share the goal of creating Following opportunity for Following people. We intend to encourage and empower people from under-represented groups to seek employment opportunities in the plastics industry, and to support them so that they can achieve equitable success in these careers.

Promoting greater diversity within work environments is also profitable for businesses and is a critical component for businesses wishing to attract younger employees to replace an aging workforce. Farrey points to “a ton of ongoing research” showing the benefits for companies that embrace the principles of DCI. He quotes a item in the September issue of Plastics engineering magazine, written by editor Pat Toensmeier. He writes: “DEI strategies have many (business) advantages. Research indicates that companies that have engaged in DEI achieve greater product innovation, higher market share, improved cash flow, and increased profitability than those that do not have such programs or are late in their implementation…. “

A commitment to DCI principles can also be a critical factor in recruiting young workers. “For the record, I hear from young professional members of SPE their desire to work for companies with a social conscience on subjects such as DCI and the environment. A survey conducted in July by Glassdoor found that 76% of employees and job seekers believe that a diverse workforce is an important factor in deciding which company to work for. Even if your business isn’t paying attention to DEI, your future workforce will, ”said Farrey.

The details of the roundtables as well as the attendees are a work in progress, but Informa Markets – Engineering has announced that DCI sessions will be held over two days at the events, with a half-day of discussions on the first day followed by a reception. , and a full day of presentations and lunch on the second day of the event. More information will be published on the DEI page from the SPE website as soon as it becomes available.

The many construction projects underway in the Kingdom are providing a big boost to the interior design market, she said. “With a lot of projects around, especially in Riyadh, as the city is booming, there is a good chance that business will grow.”

Patryk Kocimski, CEO of Polish company Handicraft Design participating in INDEX Saudi, said Saudi Arabia is a “very good country for international business”.

He said: “I have met several people and talked to them and discussed the needs and market trends in the furniture segment and what we can provide, the response is good.”

Osama Alzoubi, interior designer at Ebreez, said the show attracted people from the industry after a one-and-a-half-year global shutdown due to the pandemic.

Ahmed Saleh Al-Aqeel, deputy general manager of Alaqeel furniture factory, said their company provides services to hotels, resorts, resorts and stores, and the presence of international hotels and large US companies- United, Europe and other parts of the world is “a great B2B opportunity for us.”

He said that many construction projects, including megaprojects, are underway under the Saudi Vision 2030, and that the platform connects interior suppliers and manufacturers with interior designers, architects, project managers and retailers involved in these development projects across the Kingdom.

The forum will respond to inquiries from construction projects including Red Sea Development Project, NEOM, Qiddiya, AMAALA, Diriyah, Al Widyan, King Salman Park, Jeddah Tower, Riyadh and Jeddah Metro and others.

The residential interiors sector in Saudi Arabia is growing very rapidly. Developers are investing around $ 10.7 billion in construction of residential and commercial projects, thus increasing the demand for residential interiors.

Saudi Arabia is the largest construction market in the Middle East, making it the region’s largest buyer of interior design and interior design, with a domestic market value of 3.5 billion of dollars.

With the entertainment industry opening up to the world and laws loosening to encourage tourism, the Kingdom is preparing for massive change.

Jasmeet Bakshi, director of group events at DMG Events and organizer of the Hotel Show, said the three-day event “opened with great success, reinforcing the importance of live networking, building relationships and trade within the sector ”.

The hotel lounge and accompanying entertainment lounge opened with the firm belief in recognizing Saudi talent abounding in the hospitality, tourism and entertainment industries.

As young people in Saudi Arabia are encouraged to choose the local hospitality and tourism sectors for their careers, robust growth in the industry is expected.

Luis Salgueiro, CEO of ZADK and guest speaker at the Hotel Leadership Forum at the show, said: “After the pandemic, I think the future of the food and beverage market will certainly continue to increase. Saudi Arabia’s food and beverage sector is the largest in the Middle East, according to recent studies. Saudi Arabia is worth $ 45 billion.

James Barlow, director of exports at Rainbow productions, a world leader in the manufacture of bespoke branded and sports mascots, said he was exhibiting in Saudi Arabia for the first time.

“We see a lot of prospects for the future. We have made a good profile here, having worked with Al-Othaim. We are here to continue to build on it, ”he said. “Saudi Arabia is definitely an emerging market, and we want to make sure we’re at the forefront of it.”
