Product News CS plastic

Product News CS plastic pallet from Craemer: a durable and hygienic material flow solution The new CS plastic pallet, available in Euro and industrial dimensions, rounds out Craemer’s already extensive product portfolio. The load carrier with a nearly completely enclosed upper deck features a sturdy design. Welded runners provide very smooth running on roller conveyors and ensure a high hygienic standard. The pallet is optionally available with outer edges 7 or 22 mm high. RFID transponders for improved traceability of plastic pallets can be integrated into the initial equipment or retrofitted flexibly at any time. A configuration with up to four corrosion-protected reinforcement profiles is available (for loads up to 1,250 kg in high-bay warehouses). AMI develops labeling system for cardboard packaging AMI Förder- und Lagertechnik GmbH has developed and implemented a labeling system for cardboard packaging on order from Weber Marking Systems GmbH, a company specializing in labeling. The system is designed for efficient labeling of cardboard packaging when it is empty and folded together flat. For this purpose the AMI conveyor system was combined with the operating company’s labeling machines. The system can be used to process cartons of different sizes. Below certain dimensions, two cartons can also be labeled in parallel. To do this the conveyor system is divided into two parallel conveyor belts, each with a labeler connected. The stacked cartons are placed in the inlet, then positioned on the roller conveyor and finally pushed into the machine. From there the system removes the lowest carton one at a time, thereby separating the stack into individual cartons. The machine automatically places the required labels on the cartons as they move through the main conveyor. RFID Labeling System from Logopak: advantages for the entire process chain With its Advanced Tag Applicator (ATA), Logopak offers an RFID system for labeling furniture parts and extension components. The machine inserts UHF transponders into slots made in parts – fully automatically during the manufacturing process. The applicator can be adjusted to different cycle rates. The transponder meets high requirements for shock and vibration resistance to ensure that furniture parts labeled with ATA remain reliably identifiable. In addition, the labeling cannot be lost: After the transponder is inserted into the workpiece, it remains inside the finished furniture part. Adhesive and paper residue and damage to the wood finish or decor – common problems when self-adhesive barcode labels are removed – are eliminated by RFID labeling technology. In this way the visual impression and value of the furniture item are fully preserved. Every transponder inserted in a furniture part is unique, with a code that is assigned only once anywhere in the world. Logopak uses exclusively UHF transponders specified by GS1 standards for RFID labeling. This ensures that stationary write/read devices and mobile terminal devices which meet the GS1 standard will later be able to reliably identify furniture parts and also update the data content if necessary. VIDEOIMPRESSIONS The f+h editorial staff attended CeMAT South America – International trade fair for material flow and logistics – with a video camera and captured some impressions along the way.

RUBRIZIERUNGSEBEBE 2 I RUBRIZIERUNGSEBENE NEWS AND MARKETS Hanover – the hidden champion Airbnb – a hip startup, based in California, with a brand new idea. Private hosts offer their accommodations to complete strangers. The host earns some extra money, and guests get an affordable place to stay – often becoming “a part of the family”. The company was created in 2008 and has become well-known worldwide. But do you know when people in Hanover came up with such an idea? In 1947, nearly seventy years ago, the first industrial fair “Hannover Messe” took place. Housing was in short supply among the ruins of post-war Germany, so Hanover created a platform for guests from all over the world to share private accommodations. Not only was this a brilliant and simple idea – it has developed over the years and has been the basis of friendly relations between international visitors and their local hosts in Hanover. It is one of the reasons why Hanover should rank first in Germany in terms of international personal relationships. But also typical of Hanover, this has been implemented without excessive marketing and PR. The same goes for IT. Do you know when the first CeBIT took place? In 1970 – a time when the majority of the population did not even know computers existed. Here, again, Hanover was a trendsetter. Since then, CeBIT has grown to become a global brand in the industry and far beyond. Why? Because facts and performance speak for themselves and are still the best form of advertising.That is exactly what makes Hanover unstoppable. It does not blatantly beat the publicity drum but, rather, stresses the facts and figures. This corresponds to the temperament of the people who live here. A typical Hanoverian stands out because of his or her efficiency and practicality. In Hannover, people would rather be a “ hidden champion”. The successful mid-sized companies in Germany are an excellent example for this; companies that are primarily distinguished by the quality of their products. These businesses do not need to pretend to be larger than they really are nor do they need advertising referring to old traditions, which are now of secondary importance. Hanover does not boast about being a “Gateway to the World”, Peter Eisenschmidt, Hannoverimpuls GmbH as Hamburg has advertised itself since the Middle Ages. The city does not overemphasize cultural events, like Munich with its Oktoberfest, like Berlin via its “international” attitude towards life or the Ruhr area with its industrial competence. Hanover has, for example, earned the title of a “UNESCO City of Music”. The city has the biggest “green lung” in Europe, the “Eilenriede”; an urban forest spanning 640 hectares. The cost of living is low and medical care is top-notch. “Hard facts” – that is what matters. But the city makes an especially good impression with regard to its “hard facts”, which are particularly important for investors. Hanover is located in the heart of Germany and, as a result, it serves as a crossroads for main transport corridors between northern and southern Europe or between Paris and Moscow. The Deutsche Messe AG is located here – the largest trading center in the world. With 463,275 m 2 of hall space it overshadows all other trade fairs. The SNIEC in Shanghai has about 200,000 m 2 of capacity. Around 100 trade fairs are organised by the operating company “ German Messe AG” in Germany and abroad, making it to a market leader. International companies rely on Hanover But let us leave the fairgrounds and focus on Hanover itself. Can you name a product from Hanover? No? Have you ever seen a VW Bulli? If there were a symbol of the German economic miracle and a car that stands for robustness and efficiency, it would be the VW bus. And since 1956 it has been produced, of course, in Hanover. Or take Continental, a company which not only used to be one of the world’s largest tire producers but also a hi-tech supplier for mechanical engineering, railway, printing or construction industries, chemicals industry as well as the aviation sector. In the spirit of internationalism, foreign companies have invested in Hanover and created important pillars in the economy. Johnson Controls has established its European headquarters in Hanover. The company is considered “one of the most admired” and “world’s most innovative companies” and it is no coincidence that it opted for Hanover. Further, the Hannover Medical School (MHH) serves as just one example of the pioneer role Hannover plays in the field of research as well. It is one of the leading institutions of its kind worldwide and this position is likely to be strengthened in the coming years. As a result, Hanover is in many ways an ideal location for innovative and pragmatic businesses and investors. In this city, there are a multitude of ways to successfully establish a business and network in Germany. Here, the economic development agency “Hannoverimpuls” is at your service as a reliable partner. We provide pragmatic and unbureaucratic assistance, open doors for you, thereby laying the foundation for your success in one of the most important economies in Europe.
