The international trade fair for construction and architecture was a large-scale event with 1,060 exhibitors and 106,000 visitors. “We clearly hit the mark with our new products, the SBZ 122/75 five-axis profile machining centre and the eluCloud software as well as the ContourLine welding technology from our partner Stürtz,” reported Paolo Cortelli, responsible for elumatec in Italy and Malta. These machines and the software were the main attractions at the 160 square metre stand, especially as they embodied the current trend towards comprehensive automation and Industry 4.0. elumatec was able to present themselves as a strong provider of solutions in these areas.

At the largest Russian construction trade fair, the country's economic crisis was palpable: There were few exhibitors and elumatec's presentation utilized a considerably smaller stand footprint. Nonetheless, the attractively designed trade fair booth drew more visitors than in previous years. Especially the new generation of profile machining centres represented by the SBZ 122/71 and SBZ 122/73 generated interest. In the PVC sector, elumatec showed off products from Stürtz and presented a highlight with the ContourLine welding technology.

More than 20,000 visitors poured into the exhibition dealing with signage, illuminated advertising and visual communication once again this year. And, once again, the DG 142 double mitre saw was the main eye catcher. "elumatec saws are the undisputed number one for sign manufacturers," says Steve Van Tongeren, CEO for elumatec North America. He recognizes a clear trend towards more production automation. Consequently, his team hit the mark perfectly with the SBZ 122/71 profile machining centre put on display. "We were able to take more orders than ever before. And the number of those interested was also up from previous years," summed up Van Tongeren.

The only trade fair for windows, doors and conservatories marked record numbers of exhibitors and visitors. elumatec took advantage of the trade fair to again position themselves as the first choice not only in the aluminium but also the PVC segment. In addition to new products such as the SBZ 122 profile machining centre, SBZ 628  profile machining centre, the eluCloud and the 4-head welding machine VS 704, a whole series of Stürtz products were also exhibited. "We had a great many enquiries, including from two of the largest window manufacturers in the nation for an automated PVC production line," reports Phil Heavey, UK managing director. And, the especially good news: A number of orders for the SBZ 122/71 profile machining centre and the DG 104 double mitre saw were placed directly at the trade fair.
