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: A step towards controlling spin-dependent petahertz electronics by material defects

The operational speed of semiconductors in various electronic and optoelectronic devices is limited to several gigahertz (a billion oscillations per second). This constrains the upper limit of the operational speed of computing. Now researchers from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg, Germany, and the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay have explained how these processes can be sped up through the use of light waves and defected solid materials.

Light waves perform several hundred trillion oscillations per second. Hence, it is natural to envision employing light oscillations to drive the electronic...

Im Focus: Freiburg researcher investigate the origins of surface texture

Most natural and artificial surfaces are rough: metals and even glasses that appear smooth to the naked eye can look like jagged mountain ranges under the microscope. There is currently no uniform theory about the origin of this roughness despite it being observed on all scales, from the atomic to the tectonic. Scientists suspect that the rough surface is formed by irreversible plastic deformation that occurs in many processes of mechanical machining of components such as milling.

Prof. Dr. Lars Pastewka from the Simulation group at the Department of Microsystems Engineering at the University of Freiburg and his team have simulated such...

Im Focus: Skyrmions like it hot: Spin structures are controllable even at high temperatures

Investigation of the temperature dependence of the skyrmion Hall effect reveals further insights into possible new data storage devices

Im Focus: Making the internet more energy efficient through systemic optimization

Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden, recently completed a 5-year research project looking at how to make fibre optic communications systems more energy efficient. Among their proposals are smart, error-correcting data chip circuits, which they refined to be 10 times less energy consumptive. The project has yielded several scientific articles, in publications including Nature Communications.

Streaming films and music, scrolling through social media, and using cloud-based storage services are everyday activities now.

Im Focus: New synthesis methods enhance 3D chemical space for drug discovery

After helping develop a new approach for organic synthesis -- carbon-hydrogen functionalization -- scientists at Emory University are now showing how this approach may apply to drug discovery. Nature Catalysis published their most recent work -- a streamlined process for making a three-dimensional scaffold of keen interest to the pharmaceutical industry.

"Our tools open up whole new chemical space for potential drug targets," says Huw Davies, Emory professor of organic chemistry and senior author of the paper.
