Seven major European industrial vehicle manufacturers have already registered to attend SOLUTRANS 2011 – IVECO, DAF Trucks, MAN, MERCEDES-BENZ, RENAULT TRUCKS, SCANIA and VOLVO TRUCKS – as well as key semi-trailer and trailer manufacturers, vehicle body builders and equipment manufacturers.
Exhibitors and visitors that attended SOLUTRANS 2010 indicated that the trade show was a success, despite difficult economic conditions. SOLUTRANS 2011 is back this year to assert its position as a key trade event in the international calendar (the trade show will take place every two years).
SOLUTRANS stands out as an event that unites the entire transport profession and offers relevant responses to tomorrow’s economic, technological and environmental challenges.
As a central feature in the World Road and Urban Transport Week, SOLUTRANS includes a number of key highlights.
The Industrial Bodywork Prize will be awarded at SOLUTRANS for innovations in the improvement of vehicle bodywork performance. This covers environmental and financial concerns as well as user-friendliness.
The second Truck Industry Meeting, which will take place at SOLUTRANS 2011, will provide companies with the opportunity to raise their concerns on issues affecting the trucking sector.
SOLUTRANS will also host the Truck & Bus World Forum, which will look into and analyse the challenges facing urban transport
Additionally, visitors will be able to visit the Khub, which is a conferencing and multimedia area acting as a venue for dialogue around the theme of transport and the environment.
The Trucker Show will be another highlight at SOLUTRANS 2011: within the context of the trade fair, this event is a celebration of trucks and light commercial vehicles.
Overall, SOLUTRANS has been spurred on by the economic upturn in the road and urban-transport sector. A number of innovations are expected to be unveiled at SOLUTRANS 2011.
SOLUTRANS is a trade event for international transport solutions. SOLUTRANS 2011 will take place at the Parc des Expositions EUROEXPO exhibition centre in Lyons (France) from 29 November to 3 December 2011, between 9am and 6pm. (On Friday 2 December 2011, SOLUTRANS will close at 8pm.)For further information, please go to: www.solutrans.fr

Cells need to repair damaged DNA in our genes to prevent the development of cancer and other diseases. Our cells therefore activate and send “repair-proteins”...
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...
Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...
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...
