PULPAPER, which is the leading European trade show for the paper industry, takes place every other year, alternating with SPCI, the Swedish trade show for the paper industry. In 2007, PULPAPER welcomed 16,000 visitors from 78 countries, primarily from Europe and Asia (China, Indonesia and India). In 2010, the event will take place in Helsinki (Finland) from 1 to 3 June.
In Finland, the timber and paper sector is a key industry, and the country is renowned for its expertise in pulp and paper. PULPAPER is a key event for European companies and the French Pavilion will showcase the expertise of innovative French companies in the paper industry.
French manufacturers of machinery for the paper and cardboard industry generate 80% of their turnover through exports around the world. French companies are present at each stage of the production process, from engineering and pulp production to finished products. The 13 French companies on the French Pavilion represent all sectors of the industry and will be presenting their latest innovations during the trade show.
The following companies will take part in the French Pavilion.
ABB France specialises in coating preparation for use in papermaking (www.abb.com/pulpandpaper), while ABK Machinery SA designs and manufactures complete machines and specialised equipment for the paper and board industry (www.abkmachinery.com).
B A Systèmes supplies Automatically Guided Vehicles (AGVs) to leading multinational companies in the paper and printing industry (www.basystemes.com). Clextral will present its Bivis machines, which process a wide variety of raw materials into quality pulp (www.clextral.com).
CTP (Centre Technique du Papier) is an R&D centre for the production and converting industry for pulp, paper and board (www.webctp.com). For its part, Durum is a leading specialist in the manufacturing and application of hardfacing products and parts for the paper industry (www.barratgroup.com).
IBC is an international provider of training courses for the pulp and paper industry (www.ibc-ppc.com). Pall Corporation is a leading specialist in filtration, separation and purification, providing analyses and solutions for fluids used by the pulp and paper industry (www.pall.com).
Rai-Tillieres produces wove dandy rolls, marking rolls, filtration belts and shrinkable covers for use by the paper industry (www.raitillieres.com). Solaronics Bekaert offers a range of non-contact drying solutions for paper manufacturers (www.bekaert.com).
Symop, the French Association for Manufacturing Technologies, brings today 220 companies, including specialists in manufacturing for the paper industry (www.symop.com). Tecofi designs and manufactures industrial valves and accessories with applications in sectors including water, HVAC, and the pulp and paper industry (www.tecofi.fr). Finally, Thermopap offers complete drying and energy-saving solutions for papermakers (www.thermopap.com).
UBIFRANCE is the French Agency for International Business Development, and is part of France’s export-support framework.

Physicists of the University of Würzburg have made an astonishing discovery in a specific type of topological insulators. The effect is due to the structure of the materials used. The researchers have now published their work in the journal Science.
Topological insulators are currently the hot topic in physics according to the newspaper Neue Zürcher Zeitung. Only a few weeks ago, their importance was...
In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.
Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...
Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...
A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.
Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...
In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.
“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...
