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).

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
