JEC Europe 2013

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract – JEC Europe 2013: The JEC Europe 2013 composite show, held in Paris on 11th – 14th March, 2013, covered the sector’s major topics: mass production, thermoplastics, smart composites with embedded sensors, new applications, the environment, and recycling. Clearly, the trend in the composite world is on large production, and most notably thermoplastics. The idea is to find more and more applications for cheaper thermoplastics, that can be handled efficiently through RTM processes. Indeed, it is estimated that the composites market will grow at an average annual global rate of 6%, to reach a value of about €90 billion and a volume of 10 million metric tons by 2015 (compared to €80 billion and 9.2 million MT in 2012).

However, there are still outstanding innovations for thermosetting materials, which are mostly based on faster curing ways. Henkel is pushing polyurethane resins to the detriment of epoxy resins, because polyurethane can be cured five times faster than epoxy. It should be interesting to see if polyurethane resins will become the standard materials for thermosetting material for RTM processes in the future. In terms of sectors, the automotive industry really brought it the next level in the JEC Europe 2013 exhibition show. There were numerous demonstrations that suppliers are perfectly able to keep up with the output demanded by the automotive industry, and 70% of the parts shown in the Exhibit Area were related to automotive transportation. The most impressive innovation came from BMW, which find a way to produce car body parts made of CFRP in less than 10 minutes for curing. This composite will be used in the mass produced electric car named BMW i3, which will feature an estimated sales price of 40 000€ by November 2013 !

Mobile IT & Big Data

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract – Mobile IT & Big Data
According to the organizers, the exhibition Mobile IT and Big Data have not attracted many visitors. Big companies like Orange, SFR, Bouygues, Free for telecoms or like Intel, Dell, IBM for Big Data were absent. But the conferences on the evolution of these sectors have been very successful. In a gloomy atmosphere where visitors and exhibitors talk openly about tiny budgets for information technology, some sectors, however, were quite healthy and innovative. This was the case for equipment manufacturers and developers of next generation telephony, or web provider. There were some impressive innovations in the field of smartphones coming from a large number of young companies, specializing in mobile business solutions.

The advent of smartphones and tablets is revolutionizing enterprise mobility. Judicious use of interfaces from the video games industry brings playful applications, which allows more friendly use by customers. We talk about “gamification” phenomenon, which is about to commercially explode in the short term. Conferences on Big Data grew quite a crowd and allowed visitors to discover an emerging sector that should weigh heavily in the development of enterprises. In only 10 years, the amount of data increased exponentially. Data storage is a costly problem for businesses, but these data are relatively untapped by companies. The idea of big data is to create added value from very diverse data. People now talk about flows, exchanges, collaborations rather than storage. Nothing is sorted but everything can be found. Big Data (from 10 TB of data) is revolutionizing the infrastructure in information technology. Environments such as Hadoop provide flexibility in resources and adapt to the workload by adding inexpensive servers in parallel. Big Data has generated a turnover of $ 17 billion in 2011 and it is estimated that this figure will double by 2016. The great debate with big data is to find a balance between data transparency and privacy of citizens..

Pollutec 2013

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract Pollutec 2013: Pollutec 2013 was held from 3 to 6 December 2013 at the fairgrounds in Paris -Nord Villepinte, where no less than 1194 exhibitors (French 819) from 28 countries were able to disclose their activities in sustainable development. This 2013 edition is still pointed out by the illustration of the economic crisis, which began to last well beyond predictions and eventually begin the cash many companies. Thus, it should be noted that the general atmosphere was not out innovation, but rather streamlining, cutting waste, continuous improvement, etc. During his visit to the opening of the exhibition, the Minister of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Energy , Philippe Martin, has set the tone, praising the circular economy that works to close the life cycle of products, through inventory optimization, material flow, energy, waste . In other words, the trend is eco -design, incorporating an early stage production sustainability concerns, reuse or recycling. (…).

Pharmapack 2012

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract pharmapack 2012: At Pharmapack Europe 2012 we saw this year that compliance is a big topic amongst suppliers of packaging solutions for the pharmaceutical industry. Many packaging solutions for this industry now go far further from their primary function of protecting the content, and include features like easy dosage and application, child resistance, senior friendliness and tamper evidence. Electronics is also making its way towards providing intelligent information to patients to improve compliance. The other major trend that we have noticed is the increasing use of lighter and safer polymer materials for applications where glass is traditionally used like for bottles, vials and syringes.

PCD 2012

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract:
This year, the PCD congress-exhibition was held along with the Aerosol&Dispensing forum. During the two days event, we saw that in addition to promoting and protecting the product, packaging provides more and more for easy delivery and application. Indeed, user friendliness and easy dosing packaging is a big trend along with solutions allowing preservative free formulas. Just like last year, the respect the environment was also high on the agenda, with greener glass container production, bio-based polycarbonate-replacement and fully or easily recycling packaging. Asian customers are fond of electro-packaging and some believe that this is another major trend for the coming years in the European market. Finally, communicating packaging with QR codes for instance is proving to be a very powerful tool that brands can use to interact and communicate with customers before, and after purchasing..

CFIA 2011

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract:
The CFIA collects in one place all the OEMs, suppliers and service providers in food processing. During our visit March 15, 2011, we focused on “Ingredients and Intermediate food products.” We noted in particular the major trends for ingredients. They should enable us to appreciate food (taste), without damaging our health (naturalness (“clean label”), replace additives (“free from …”, for a better food security) or our environment (sustainable development). They must resist the manufacturing process (functionality) while helping to reduce prices (reformulation). The innovations presented in this report take into account these trends through the types of ingredients: the ingredients of taste, from animal or plant origin, texturants, ferments and nutritional ingredients, sweeteners and ready-to eat products..

Genesics 2

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract – Genesics 2:
Cap Robotique is the first business cluster in France dedicated to the robotics industry and was the topic of the Genesics2 forum, held in Paris on the 7th of February, 2011. Cap Robotique is opened to every company or laboratory which wants to bring its expertise to the French industry of the domestic service robotics. The cluster gathers yet prestigious protagonists like the CEA LIST or the CNRS LAAS, but also various innovative start-ups, recognized experts of their fields, like Gostai, Robotswin or Workfly. Even though, Aldebaran Robotics was clearly the star company in the Genesics2 forum, held in Paris on the 7th of February 2011, many promising French companies showed up and exhibited their robots to the audience. Most of these robots are affordable (from 3 000€ to 12 000 €) and were developed to provide services to people. Unlike robots made in Japan, the French are not highly expensive units, stored in R&D departments in universities and big companies. Indeed, the French way of making robots is now well known in the world and France is considered one of the top countries in the robot industry. Expectations are really high for the French robot companies, as they have developed a very expertise. This should lead to good business opportunities in the years to come.

JEC Composites Europe 2011

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract:
As it has been the case for many years now, the JEC Composite Show Paris 2011 has once again gathered key players in the sector of the composite materials and has given opportunities to many companies to showcase new products and innovations. The automotive sector was much represented as carbon fiber reinforced plastics answer the growing need for more efficient and lighter vehicles. On the vegetal fiber side, flax fibers are gaining ground as we now see technical applications where linen replaces advantageously glass fiber. The need for lighter structures also means that new light structure material building solutions are always being sought and that new ways of assembling composite materials are now proposed. Consumer expectations and more stringent regulations on materials also mean that resin manufacturers are now proposing bio-based resins for composite manufacture, leading the way towards composites with lower carbon footprint..

In Cosmetics 2013

09 Jun 2015, Posted by adminviedoc in Trade Show CI news
Abstract
The In-Cosmetics 2013 exhibition held in Paris on 16th – 18th April, 2013, truly is the leading global business platform for personal care. Inside the “In Cosmetics” exposition, it was possible to see there is a clear trend toward natural products. There were lots of novel cosmetic oils from the Amazon, fragrant essential oils from Nepal, and Kampo traditional herbal skin formulas from Japan – all prepared in forms that make them ideal for use in cosmetic, skin and hair care products. Where once laboratory chemistry appeared to reign supreme, nature is re-establishing dominance – but with a strong scientific backup. Today’s portfolios of herbal ingredients come with dossiers of scientific substantiation, charts showing their chemistry, and even samples as examples of how these ingredients can be formulated into finished products. The French company Naturex is one of the leading companies in this natural trend for active ingredients. An additional strong theme at “In Cosmetics” is the demand for sustainability. The big cosmetic companies not only want their ingredients increasingly natural, but they are demanding sourcing that follows strict guidelines of ethical trade and environmental preservation. At “In Cosmetics,” what is old is new again. Plants of all kinds yield compounds that firm skin, reduce wrinkles, make hair shine, diminish cellulite, and enhance beauty in hundreds of ways. That means cleaner, safer cosmetic and body care products, less toxic waste, and perhaps even a healthier environment in the long run. Last but not least, in March 2013, European Union regulators announced a ban on the import and sale of cosmetics containing ingredients tested on animals and to pledge more efforts to push other parts of the world, like China, to accept alternatives. Even before the new rule was officially announced, the cosmetics company L’Oréal, which is based in France, said it would respect the ban and “no longer sell in Europe any finished product with an ingredient that was tested on animals”. This has a major impact on ingredient suppliers, which was promoted in vivo testing through clinical trials to prove how good their active ingredients are. Accordingly, new testing methods and new skin analysis imaging techniques were displayed in the exhibition. The French company Quantificare and its new 3D LifeViz Micro were quite impressive..
