Messe Frankfurt New Era Business Media Ltd has acquired Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair to expand the worldwide portfolio of its Light + Building brand of trade fairs. Powered by Messe Frankfurt since their inception in 2015, the two fairs will now officially form part of the Light + Building family that totals 14 fairs around the globe. Messe Frankfurt will leverage its extensive international experience in growing trade fairs, while at the same time utilise its local organising partners' knowledge to propel the fairs forward as ASEAN’s leading trade fairs for lighting and building technology, design and solutions.

Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair will be held from 8 – 10 November at Bangkok International Convention & Exhibition Centre. The 2018 edition is expected to welcome over 165 exhibitors utilising some 10,000 sqm of exhibition space.

Mr Stephan Buurma, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt Group, commented on the acquisition: “The Light + Building brand of shows is well-recognised around the world for its high quality event format and its power to attract the best in the industry. Adding the Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair to this growing family will complement our existing shows by creating a synergy between the different lighting and building markets.”

“With a combined GDP of over USD2.4 trillion, the region is collectively the sixth largest economy in the world and the third most populous. The acquisition will facilitate Messe Frankfurt to further develop our presence within the network of ASEAN countries. It will also allow us to expand and strengthen our portfolio in the ASEAN region. Our local partners ‒ The ExhibiZ and the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) ‒ have been instrumental in establishing the shows and we look forward to working together with them for many years ahead,” Mr Buurma added.

Thailand serves as the gateway into the booming ASEAN region

Messe Frankfurt has had a successful partnership for over 30 years with The ExhibiZ’s owner, Worldex G.E.C Co Ltd. An experienced organiser of trade fairs in Thailand, The ExhibiZ is eager to continue working alongside its seasoned international partner, explains Ms Pakwan Jiamjiroj, General Manager: “We are delighted to bring the Thailand Lighting Fair and the Thailand Building Fair into a new era thanks to the partnership with Messe Frankfurt. With their strong international reputation and some 800 years’ experience in organising trade fairs, we know that both shows have the potential to grow immensely. The lighting industry in Southeast Asia is already worth as much as USD5 billion, with the LED lighting industry accounting for over USD1.5 billion of that value. This healthy outlook demonstrates that the time to invest in Thailand and its neighbouring countries is most certainly now.”

The PEA is a government enterprise that handles the generation, distribution, sales and provision of electricity to the business, industrial and general public sectors in Thailand. As a result of a number of pro-investment policies by the Thai government, the LED market in Thailand continues to expand. One such project currently being undertaken by the PEA is a three-phase project devised to completely replace Thailand’s streetlights with more energy-efficient LEDs. The Governor, Mr Sermsakool Klaikaew, said: “The Thailand lighting market is worth almost USD1 billion and has witnessed positive annual growth year after year. As we undertake such crucial nationwide projects to improve our infrastructure, it is vitally important that we continue to grow as an industry. By growing the international focus of the fairs, we will help to bring greater understanding and expertise from the international lighting and building communities directly to Thailand. We hope that this will foster innovation and continue to spur on the region’s exciting growth.”

Messe Frankfurt has already established renowned lighting and building fairs across Asia in Guangzhou, Shanghai, New Delhi and Mumbai since the turn of the century. The shared expertise that has been gained in running these shows will benefit the Thailand Lighting Fair and Thailand Building Fair and should bring these diverse markets closer together. Indeed, significant trade connections already exist between Thailand and some of these nations whereby Thailand currently imports around 90% of its LED products from China and other countries.

The two fairs will be held concurrently with Secutech Thailand, a premier platform that showcases the latest innovations in security, smart homes and fire and safety products. By hosting Thailand Lighting Fair, Thailand Building Fair and Secutech Thailand under one roof, the interconnected lighting, building and safety industries have an unrivalled one-stop sourcing opportunity. For more information, please visit www.thailandlightingfair.com

Messe Frankfurt is present in 178 countries and hosts exhibitions and conferences in around 30 locations with its brands and brand families. The company has a considerable portfolio of lighting and building fairs across Asia, while the Light + Building family of trade shows is headed by the biennial Light + Building mother show in Frankfurt, Germany.

Vacuum technology for increased efficiency, durability and higher resource effectivity in the food industry

February 8th, 2018 --( ASIA TODAY )-- At the leading trade fair Anuga FoodTec in Cologne, Leybold presents its vacuum technologies for the food processing and packaging industry from the 20th to the 23rd March 2018. The efficient solutions of the vacuum supplier are used worldwide. In a wide variety of applications, the pumps, systems and measuring devices of this long-established company make a significant contribution to sustainable and competitive products and processes in the food and beverage industry.

Vacuum pump help to accelerate packaging processes
At one of Italy's largest producers of meat products near Parma, the installation of a Leybold system has reduced packaging time by around 20 percent. In addition to high vacuum performance, the meat product specialist attaches particular importance to an energy-efficient production process with low service and maintenance costs. The system based on the DRYVAC dry screw pump has been running reliably and without
interruption for years, so that the customer was able to devote himself to the core tasks.

Global supply chains require more durability in shelf life
Efficient, hygienic food processing under vacuum is also becoming increasingly important for other reasons: In the age of global supply chains, the demands on shelf life are increasing. In view of this trend, customized vacuum solutions are essential for the economic efficiency of companies. For decades, Leybold has been manufacturing the technologies for the quality control of packaging. For example, leak tightness is
increasingly tested under vacuum because only leak detectors such as the PHOENIX series meet the highest testing standards. Mass spectrometers used in food analysis also make use of the performance of modern, noise-reduced pumps such as the

Vacuum improves in-house logistics
For the delivery of raw materials in processing and packaging plants, vacuum is required to handle internal conveying processes. These systems assist in sorting and facilitate the removal of specific risk materials and slaughterhouse by-products for prevention purposes. In this way, the hygienic standards can be effectively ensured. For these applications, too, the system solutions must be energy-efficient, easy to maintain
and space-saving. The VACUBE central vacuum system meets these requirements by providing a demand-oriented vacuum for the application process through special speed adjustments. In addition, the Leybold products comply with all guidelines for plant and occupational safety.

Innovative processes in food processing
Vacuum baking offers advantages for plant manufacturers, producers, bakeries and consumers alike: Customers can enjoy fresh bakery products with optimum qualities in appearance and presentation almost around the clock; significant savings are possible in sales and production. Energy consumption and logistics costs are also reduced, supported by the optimized efficiency of the pumps used in these applications, such as
the SOGEVAC or DRYVAC. Depending on the design of the plant, process savings of up to 50 percent can be achieved also due to shortest cooling times, significant reductions in storing space, resulting in a clear advantage on food safety.

Benefits for all parties involved
All in all, Leybold's modern vacuum technology opens up an increase in quality and productivity - vacuum pumps such as the CLAWAC offer special product properties especially in the rough vacuum range. The extremely robust design of these pumps allows them to be used in demanding applications; process gases contaminated with dust and vapors can also be handled.

Innovative vacuum technology exploits the potential for improvement in terms of production, infrastructure, staffing, logistics costs and energy consumption. Variable combination options, such as the oil-sealed SOGEVAC and RUVAC pumps with the modern oil-free, dry-compressing DRYVAC pumps offer proven reliability. Appropriate technical concepts that guarantee optimized process stability round off Leybold's product range.

Visitors to the Anuga FoodTec will receive further information on the use of vacuum technology in all applications at the Cologne trade fair from 20th to 23rd March 2018 at Leybold GmbH in Hall 7.1, Stand C021.

Solutions for Trends in Industrial Coating Technology
 
Jan 18, 2018
Category:

Oberboihingen --( ASIA TODAY )-- Improving material and energy efficiency, optimizing quality, increasing flexibility, reducing unit costs and digitalising manufacturing processes – these are a few of the significant trends which are occupying companies with in-house coating operations. PaintExpo exhibitors will present new products and further developments for the implementation of these trends, which also contribute to a sharper competitive edge. The world’s leading trade fair for industrial coating technology will take place at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from the 17th through 20th of April, 2018.

Whether liquid painting, powder coating or coil coating is involved – running processes more efficiently and sustainably, improving coating quality and enhancing productivity are being targeted on the one hand. Changing requirements with regard to product individualisation and digitalisation of manufacturing processes are being tackled on the other hand. Exhibitors at the upcoming PaintExpo, being held at the Karlsruhe Exhibition Centre from 17 to 20 April 2018, will offer a broad range of innovations and further developed products and services for the fulfilment of these tasks. The list of participating companies includes practically all of the sector’s market and technology leaders. “This makes it possible for job-shop coaters and visitors from companies with in-house coating operations to gather comprehensive information about the most up-to-date developments and trends in the field of industrial coating technology. At the same time, corresponding investment decisions can be prepared and implemented which contribute to the firming up and expansion of one’s competitive position within the global market”, reports Jürgen Haußmann, managing director of event promoters FairFair GmbH.

Improving Material Efficiency

Increasing material efficiency is an issue for which the exhibitors present innovative solutions. Attention is focused on application systems both with and without electrostatic charging, which per se permit higher levels of material efficiency. For example, spray guns with electrostatic charging for manual and automatic application of liquid paints will be presented, by means of which significant material savings can be realised. In the case of large automated painting lines, high-speed rotary atomisers – with adjustable spray-jet width as well – permit efficient material usage. And layer thickness can be ideally matched to the object to be painted with devices for contactless, online layer thickness measurement. In addition to material savings, this results in improved coating quality and minimal scrap rates. Optimal alignment of the application system to the object to be painted also has a significant influence on material efficiency. Laser scanning systems are available to this end for liquid painting as well as powder coating, which precisely detect the contour of the object to be coated and automatically compile the object’s shape in combination with the controller using 3D software, correspondingly position the spray gun’s axes and adjust the coating parameters.

A further approach to improving material efficiency involves pigment feeding. Savings are made possible in this regard through the use of systems for, amongst other things, intelligent control of colour changeovers and/or rinsing processes, as well as improved pigment dosing. Generally speaking, electronic monitoring of parameters such as pressure, temperature and output increases transparency, thus making it possible to set up processes more efficiently. Corresponding control solutions will also be showcased at PaintExpo.

As a result of the trend towards greater individualisation, demand for multicolour coatings is continuously on the rise. The goal is to be able to apply coatings without any masking at all, or with significantly reduced masking work and less overspray. An application implemented in the field of aviation demonstrates that this is feasible. It’s used to add decoration to an aircraft tail fin without any overspray through the use of individual droplets. Spray film is another approach which can be applied with a very sharp edge and simply pulled back off again later.

Automation and Industry 4.0

Manual painting work will remain indispensable in the future, but there’s a trend towards the automation of application processes where series painting is concerned. This is being driven by the development of small, low-cost, easy-to-program robots. They permit high levels of reproducibility and process quality, and thus contribute to improved efficiency and a sharper competitive edge for companies with in-house painting facilities.

Beyond this, high-performance manufacturing execution systems (MES) will also be presented as a key component for efficient manufacturing. They network the factory throughout the entire manufacturing process (horizontally), as well as through all process levels (vertically). This permits integrated data acquisition, analysis and graphic display in real-time. If acquired data regarding the condition of the system, the processes and the products are analysed and linked to each other, the systems can also be rendered intelligent and self-regulating by means of knowledge-based algorithms.

PaintExpo’s complete exhibition programme covers coating equipment for liquid, powder, UV, immersion and coil processes, paints and enamels for all processes, application systems, spray guns and atomisers, automation and conveyor technology, cleaning and pre-treatment, drying and curing, environmental technology, pneumatics, compressed air supply and exhaust purification, water treatment, recycling and disposal, accessories, masking, measuring and test technology, quality assurance, identification, paint stripping, job-shop coating, services and technical literature.
