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: Gamma-ray flashes from plasma filaments

Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.

The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
