The SBZ 628 elicits an enthusiastic response from experts

The very first "Windows, Doors & Facades", held in Dubai from September 18 through 20, 2016, proved to be a resounding success - both for the organisers and for elumatec. Together with other global brands in the industry, the German world industry leader is one of the trade show's founding members. "We finally have a proper industry platform in the Middle East that is geared towards the window, door and façade manufacturing industries," explains Ayman Droubi, executive partner at elumatec MiddleEast, while recounting the outstanding response to the event despite the fact that Glasstec took place at the same time in Düsseldorf. More than 5,000 visitors from 64 countries filled the halls - and most of them made sure to head towards elumatec's booth first. The reason? The SBZ 628 profile machining centre, which elicited an enthusiastic response thanks to its groundbreaking versatility and automation and not only drew record numbers of visitors, but also became the talk of the town at the trade show. "We established some very promising contacts, talked to many prospective buyers and showed why we're the leaders in this industry," Droubi summarises.

A noticeably positive mood

Automated solutions were the focus at Veteco, the international trade show for windows, façades and structural glazing that was held at Madrid's exhibition centre from October 25 through 28, 2016 and that clearly showed one thing: the economic situation is starting to heat up. For instance, the exhibition space was twice as large this year, and the number of exhibitors grew thirty percent to a total of 260. Together with its partner Aptec, elumatec showcased a series of relatively small machines at its booth of just under 220 square meters. These included the EP 124 corner crimper, the MGS 142 mitre saw, the AS 170 1-spindle copy router, the ZS 720 2-head welding machine, and the WSF 74/03 automatic water slot router. "A lot of experts from all over the world visited our booth, including many customers from South America. It was very clear that visitors were much more interested in general than two years ago," says Andreas Pum, Aptec's Managing Director, when summarizing the company's successful participation at Veteco. Our partner Stürtz, which showcased a new welding method, shared this view. The method, called ContourLine, joins visible surfaces without welding beads, eliminating the need for cleaning and producing a higher-quality impression.
