W RLDWIDE NEWS Jungheinrich: Changes in the Board of Management Jungheinrich AG announces changes in the Board of Management: Dr Klaus-Dieter Rosenbach, Member of the Board of Management for Logistics Systems, will leave the company prematurely at his own request. Because his private life planning changed for health-related reasons, Dr Rosenbach asked the Supervisory Board to prematurely release him from his contract with effect from 31 March 2020. His contract otherwise would have expired at the end of 2021. Hans-Georg Frey, Chairman of the Supervisory Board, says, “Over three decades, Dr Klaus-Dieter Rosenbach has greatly contributed to the successful development of Jungheinrich, and I have always considered him a loyal and reliable companion. On behalf of the Supervisory Board, both shareholder families Lange and Wolf, and the Board of Management, we would like to express our utmost gratitude and respect for his extraordinary work. We wish him the best for his time after leaving Jungheinrich.” The Supervisory Board and the Board of Management have decided to downsize the Board of Management after the departure of Dr Rosenbach and reduce it from five to four divisions, effective from April 2020. Ms Sabine Neuß will take over responsibility for the Engineering division from the Chairman of the Board of Management Dr Lars Brzoska. Linde Hydraulics opens new plant in Weifang, China In an official ceremony, Linde Hydraulics GmbH and Co. KG opened its newly-built production plant in Weifang, China. The global project team took only two years for completion from concept to opening of this 36,000 m 2 facility which encompasses an administration building along with 25,000 m 2 production halls. The new facility consolidates processes previously housed in several buildings and allows for the best possible material flow throughout production. Coordination at the beginning of the project allowed for optimal plant layout through “greenfield” development. For example, the measurement/testing laboratory is directly connected to both the receiving and the production departments to achieve and secure the high-quality standards. The Weifang plant has the capacity to produce 100,000 units per year. 80% of the production capacity will be dedicated to pumps and motors and 20% for valve technology.

“Never change a winning team” Mitsubishi Electric and Yamazaki Mazak are looking forward to their 40 years of cooperation: a success story of two companies with Japanese roots in North Rhine-Westphalia. The cooperation started in 1979: The result was groundbreaking and was presented to the public with a sensational presentation at the EMO in Hanover in 1981: It was the Mazatrol T1, the world’s first dialogue controller. This controller saved the machine operator complicated calculations for cutting conditions and motion sequences. This was the starting point for many other controller generations. Together they developed continuous new phases of innovation. Traditionally, Mazak was already known for its great strengths in machine tool manufacturing, whereas Mitsubishi Electric contributed its expertise in electronics and mechatronics. The synergies that have developed over time have led to a shared working philosophy, which is still very much active today.

STW and MTCON join forces Sensor-Technik Wiedemann GmbH (STW) enters into another cooperation: At the end of 2019, the company procured shares in the power element experts MTCON- NECTIVITY power2pcb (MTCON). By combining their core competencies, the two companies intend to develop, produce and market high-performance PCB components and assemblies even faster, more efficiently and more inexpensively. In addition to its tried and tested portfolio of MTCON power elements and connectors, MTCON is incorporating into the cooperation its long-standing experience in press-fit technology, plastic injection molding and connection technology as well as in the design and development of high-performance connectors and PCBs. STW is able to boast a decades-long success story in the manufacture and development of electronic assemblies for mobile machines. MTCON is to integrate the entire family of STW connectors into its portfolio, and will sell them all over the world to international clients in these markets. MY INVERTER IS FROM NORD!
