Another Successful Week in Hannover for Precision Ceramics
As Hannover Messe 2014 drew to a close on Friday 11th April, exhibitors and organizers alike were able to look back on another highly successful event.
With this year’s clear focus on core technologies and services that enable industrial production, innovation and efficiency, the annual exhibition has become the world’s leading show for innovations and groundbreaking solutions in all the core sectors – industrial automation and IT, energy and environmental technology, industrial supply, production engineering and services – as well as research and development.
“This year the world’s leading industrial tradeshow addressed the key issue of the future of industry by presenting the solutions needed for tomorrow’s intelligent manufacturing operations. Hannover Messe is the only trade fair in the world which covers the entire spectrum, from individual components to fully functional, smart production lines. And this is precisely what industry decision-makers are looking for,” commented Dr. Jochen Köckler, member of the Managing Board at Deutsche Messe.
“Industry has found the focus of Hannover Messe to be right on target. The event has clearly revealed the long-term growth potential for exhibiting firms which is taking shape as a result of the push towards industry and customers are now ready to make the necessary investments,” he concluded.
Hannover Messe 2014 attracted more than 180,000 visitors from more than 100 different nations, matching the strong performance of 2013. Another outstanding feature was the high percentage of industry professionals and top buyers and decision-makers among attendees. The visitors came to Hannover to explore the future of industry and invest in the latest technologies and innovations on show by some 5,000 exhibitors in 27 halls.
“The many and varied exhibits of industry plant and machinery made the forthcoming industrial revolution a tangible reality for those in attendance. Hannover Messe left no doubt about the rapid progress achieved, even over the course of recent months,” said Köckler. Many components which will be of crucial importance for the new industrial manufacturing environment were on display at the tradeshow which also showcased market-ready solutions and products addressing the key challenges of standardization and IT security.
As in precision years, Precision Ceramics exhibited as part of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Group, sponsored by UK Trade & Investment. The stand – number F09E in a prime corner position of Hall 4 (left) – attracted a record number of visitors who were able to see the very latest developments in advanced technical ceramic engineering as well as an extensive array of Alumina, Boron Nitride, Macor Machinable Glass Ceramic, Silicon Carbide, Silicon Nitride, Shapal Hi-M Soft and Zirconia components finished components.
The latest addition to the Precision Ceramics range – advanced ceramic tubes and insulators for thermocouple protection – were also on show.
On opening day, the Precision Ceramics stand was visited by Simon McDonald, the British Ambassador to Germany, and the Right Hon Michael Fallon, Minister of State for Business & Energy, who were greeted by Precision Ceramics Managing Director, Steve Swallow. Other key members of the Precision Ceramics Team on duty during the week were Director of Technology, Dr Lucian Falticenau, Sales Director, Geoff Randle, and Sales Staff, Thiago Hoffman and Ben Staniforth.
