Nord-Pas-de-Calais shines with engineering excellence at Hannover fair

28.03.2012
Seven companies from the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France will showcase their innovative technologies and products at the Hannover trade fair, in Germany, from 23 to 27 April 2012. Supported by CCI International Nord de France and the MECANOV mechanical-engineering high-tech cluster, the exhibitors will be on the various French Pavilions.

Attended by professionals from all over the world, the Hannover trade fair (known as Hannover Messe in German) is the international event of reference for industry and technology; this year, it will be held in the Northern German city at the end of April (from 23 to 27). Subdivided into eight fairs, it is the ideal forum for innovation in engineering and manufacturing, with a wide range of sectors covered.

Under the banner of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, a key French region for the mechanical-engineering sector, the French Pavilions will feature seven established players. The French Pavilions are supported by CCI International Nord de France, set up by the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region, and by MECANOV, a regional high-technology cluster specializing in the mechanical-engineering sector.

In Northern France, the sector represents 45,000 employees working in 1,500 companies: this places Nord-Pas-de-Calais in fourth place, nationwide, in terms of the size of its mechanical-engineering industry. The main automotive and railway manufacturers, who are established in the region, benefit from the local workforce's proven expertise.

Companies from Nord-Pas-de-Calais at the Hannover fair will be present in the Industrial Supply, Mobilitec, GreenTec and Energy halls, which reflects the breadth of the industry across Northern France. A regional pavilion (Hall 4, Stand A42) will supplement the stands occupied by the various exhibitors (listed below). A full and detailed catalogue of exhibitors is available upon request.

ACIERIE ET FONDERIE DE LA HAUTE SAMBRE

This company (Hall 4, Stand A42) specializes in hand-mould castings weighing from 1kg to 3,500kg, with applications ranging from energy (oil, nuclear and gas), water and desalination plants to chemicals, petrochemicals and security.

DBT

DBT (Hall 27, Stand C32) has recently created a subsidiary dedicated solely to the CEV sector (where CEV stands for Charging Electric Vehicles). Nissan chose DBT for the production of its new quick chargers (QC) and asked the French company to take part in the Nissan Leaf tour of Eastern Europe (whereby DBT took care of the charging-up of the demonstration cars). DBT has also been picked by E-Laad, a Dutch consortium, to manufacture 350 charging stations to be set up across the Netherlands.

About CCI International Nord de France

CCI International Nord de France was founded in 2007 by the Chamber of Commerce & Industry of the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region (or CCI du Nord - Pas de Calais). Its aim is to assist companies based across the city of Lille and its region in their international development.

CCI International Nord de France and MECANOV are supporting the exhibitors on the region's pavilions at the trade fair. Nord-Pas-de-Calais companies at the Hannover fair will be present in the Industrial Supply, Mobilitec, GreenTec and Energy halls. A regional pavilion (Hall 4, Stand A42) will supplement the stands occupied by the various exhibitors. A full catalogue of exhibitors is available upon request.

The Hannover trade fair, in the Northern German city of Hannover, will be held between 23 and 27 April 2012.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
