France to host biggest pavilion at InnoTrans 2012

24.05.2012
UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency, will organise the largest national pavilion at InnoTrans 2012 — the world’s leading trade show for the rail and urban-transport sector. Approximately 90 companies will showcase their innovative products and services on the French Pavilion in Berlin, from 18 to 21 September 2012.

With more companies than ever before attending InnoTrans, France will once again host the national pavilion with the largest number of exhibitors. Approximately 90 companies will showcase their innovative products and services on the French Pavilion at InnoTrans, the leading rail and urban-transport trade show. Occupying 1,100m² across three halls (3.2, 11.2 and 21B) dedicated to rail technology and infrastructure, the Pavilion will be organised by UBIFRANCE, the French export-support agency.

InnoTrans, a biennial event taking place in Berlin, consists of indoor and outdoor exhibitions, together with conferences. The only trade fair of its kind, each InnoTrans event attracts more visitors than the last: in 2010, 2,250 exhibitors from 45 countries welcomed more than 103,000 visitors. In 2012, exhibitor numbers on the France Pavilion will be up by 13% on 2010. The trade show will be held from 18 to 21 September in the German capital.

UBIFRANCE will also take advantage of the exhibition’s international standing to organise the second set of International Rail and Urban-Transport Meetings — as was done in 2010 — on 19 and 20 September 2012. The meetings will be sponsored by Société Nationale des Chemins de Fer français (SNCF, the French railways operator).

These meetings are designed to help French companies meet global decision-makers from the sector and identify opportunities across international markets. Additionally, UBIFRANCE will provide multi-country information workshops, along with B2B meetings with rail experts from 17 UBIFRANCE offices worldwide.

There will also be a business reception attended by players from the French and German rail sectors, which will take place at the French Embassy in Berlin over the period that the trade fair is taking place.

Small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) as well as hi-tech clusters of excellence from six French regions will be present on the Pavilion, with industry players from Auvergne, Burgundy, Centre, Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Pays de la Loire and Picardy. Most of the machinery on display will come from the electronics, smelting, metallurgy, machining, paint, pneumatics, and cables sectors.

As well as SNCF, two other French companies will again heighten the French presence at InnoTrans by sponsoring the trade show — SCOMA, France’s leading designer and manufacturer of stabiliser rods for rolling stock, and Leroy Automation, a specialist in automation products for railways.

In 2010, the French rail industry generated a turnover of €4.82 billion, including €1.65 billion in exports — a result that was up on 2009. The French rail sector is internationally recognised for its excellence across all sub-sectors, from rolling stock and tracks to engineering.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
