After last year's launch edition – which was positively assessed by 93% of exhibitors and 65% of visitors - this year the fair will go forward in order to be closer to the needs and objectives of participants. Being thought of as an event for practical demonstrations, this year's edition of Demo Metal is a step forward, presenting, for the first time in all Romanian technical fairs a live production line. This production line illustrates the structural concept of the fair, which initiators wanted to meet the increasingly complex needs of professionals in the industry and, at the same time, to make a difference between the Demo Metal and other technical fairs in Romania.
Thus, as a supporter of the event from the early concept stage, the company GreenBau Tehnologie initiated the implementation of a technological flow cell, enrolling in it other nine companies: Maxim, Mitutoyo, Renishaw, Kaeser Kompressoren, Esprit, MB Trading, Iscar Tools, Sandvik Coromant, Seco Tools. They assumed an objective: to provide within this product line a set of best practices, ready to be implemented inproduction by the visiting specialists.
Further on, for your information, we render statements and motivations of the exhibitors involved in the technological flow cell.
Live at Demo Metal!
“After the success ofthe first edition of Demo Metal, being early supporters of the event from concept presentation by the organizers and seeing an opportunity to present product lines this year, we rallied several equipment suppliers to achieve a live production line.
We, GreenBau Tehnologie believe that the benefit of visitors, people involved in daily production, is our profit, too, and the innovative system of the event comes to supporting industry in Romania by offering products, applications and useful solutions to problems met in production.
The live production line will be a complete line and it will include semi-finished products, shearing-off, machine tool programming with specialized software, tool holders and cutting tools, coolants, machining on the CNC machine tool, parts in-process and stand alone control, cleaning, preservation, and packaging for delivery.''
Dr. Ing Viorica DESURAUNE, General Manager GreenBauTehnologie
The companies involved in the accomplishment of the flow cell technology will present solutions ready to be implemented in production.
The blanks will be cut on a cutting machine KASTO and will be processed on a versatile lathe OKUMA MULTUS B300W, the finished work-piece involving many mechanical operations, using cutting tools made with partners: ISCAR, SANDVIK and SECO.
For the first time, the work-pieces processed on the machine will be controlled directly on that machine tool, using control devices made by Mitutoyo , the multitask lathe OKUMA has, as a standard function, the in-process control using such devices.
Also, the machined work-pieces will be measured using a standalone, 3D device made by Renishaw.
For OKUMA lathe programming, we shall show, for the first time, post processing part program by means of the ESPRIT CAM software installed directly on the CNC machine.
The controlled work-piece will be forwarded to the washing and preservation area accomplished by the MB Trading partner and then to the packaging and preparation area for delivery. Within the production line, the compressed air equipment will be provided by Kaeser Kompressoren.
''We decided to take part to the production line accomplishment for showing the usefulness and the importance of the work-pieces cleaning, in all machining steps. Thus, we want to participate to report the fair visitors that by work-pieces cleaning the machining accuracy and their products quality will be increased, helping the manufacturers to get, finally, a higher profit.''
Marius Breaz, Director, MB Trading
At the stand of the Metal Demo we will demonstrate the cleaning efficiency byusing jets of cleaning solution, re-circulated in universal machines RENDER or ELMA ultrasound machines for precision cleaning.
It will also be presented a SLE equipment, too, the latest generation of measuring the degree of cleaning.
''The company SC MAXIM LLC is a permanent presence in all technical events dedicated to machining. Demo Metal is a young exhibition but it has gained since the beginning, by the participants’ prestige and top quality exhibited products, a well-deserved fame.
We hope that this year the fair to be visited by as many as possible major clients, and the participants to achieve an efficient promotion of the exhibited products. The idea of organizing an exhibition dedicated strictly to the metalworking was excellent, as it brings together leading equipmentand tools providers in the field and addresses a market segment clearly outlined, which is bound to increase in recent years in Romania.''
Ștefan MARINOIU, General Manager, Maxim Tools International
In addition to regular participation in such events, Maxim company was involved in the live production line in Demo Metal, providing KASTOverto A2 cutting machine, which will cut work-pieces from a steel bar to be processed on machines exposed GreenBau Tehnologie company.
KASTOverto A2 is a saw band machine, of the last generation, designed based on the latest European requirements relating to the work safety and ergonomics. It is a completely closed machine, and has a compact design, occupying 3m2, only. Its vertical design allows an efficient cut-off, at low energy consumption. It is very easy to be operated thanks to automation module BasicControl with controls in Romanian.
Technical solutions for automotive, aircraft and energy, within Know-How Transfer Forum
Know-How Transfer Interaction Forum is the place where every visitor and exhibitor is invited to update his knowledge and to get in touch with specialists in the industry and related fields. Visitors should not miss the opportunity to ask questions about new technologies, innovations and manufacturing processes in the mechanical processing. They could get answers to organizing efficiently and rewarding the enterprises or departments they are working in, finally resulting an increased productivity.
Following the requests from the last edition, this year's forum will fit presentations on the following topics:
AUTO - Automotive Technical Solutions
AERO - Technical solutions for aerospace industry
ENERGY - Technical solutions for energy and related industries
Technology - General Technology / Applications / Training etc.
In Know-How Transfer Forum a series of conferences will be focused so that to provide solutions to the main problems that may occur across a company or an industry specialist could be faced to:
- parts processing and finishing solutions by means of machine tools, cutting tools and finishing facilities, of the latest generation, to optimize work processes and work time shortening
- cutting edge CAD-CAM solutions leading to an increased competitiveness on technological levels
- the newest equipment offers of the exhibitors equipments, offering the maximum efficiency in technological processes.
We can benefit by an efficient business environment and a productive industry if we actively participate in information dissemination within Know-How Transfer Forum, interactive platform for information and communication among industry specialists.
