Best result for Elabo at trade fair in 10 years
Great surroundings in Hall 11, an economic upturn that is now being reflected in the planning and acquisition of capital goods, a fair with a consistent thematic orientation, including "eyecatchers" and two new products - that is how Thomas Cramer, in charge of the Elabo stand, sums up the "formula for success" of the 2011 Hanover Industrial Fair (HMI).
This year, Elabo based its exhibits at the Hanover Fair on the themes of electromobility and the solar industry. Typical measuring and testing scenarios were displayed in which Elabo products and systems were shown in actual use. At the development workstation the digital multimeter, in conjunction with the I/O multiplexer, was for example automatically recording four different measurements of an inverter circuit board, while at the service workstation a switch unit for the solar industry was being put through a test sequence. Thanks to Elabo's excellent contacts with the manufacturing companies, these were original components of the kind that are tested daily by the companies, using Elabo workstations and test stations.
In addition, Elabo presented two new products:
One of these was the so-called Software 2.0, which has a wide range of functions and functionalities and is without equal in the marketplace. For the first time a piece of software has the potential to be used in various departments of a company. Starting in the R&D sector, the extensive software package makes it possible, for example, to quickly and simply program long-term tests that are also fully documented. For product testing, test routines developed already at this stage can be used later on in series production. Also, in the case of occupational training, the software helps trainees acquire familiarity with modern measuring methods and routines, thus optimally preparing them for what they will encounter in their daily working lives. In the service and repair sector the software is extremely helpful in rapidly identifying malfunctions. Consistent further development of Elabo network technology is another strength that comes into play here. Data are stored on central or local database servers. It is hard to imagine a more efficient means of data exchange.
The new 45-7R multi-functional laboratory power supply unit also met with general acclaim. A data sheet on this product can be requested at firstname.lastname@example.org.
"Thirty-five people is an extremely large number of development staff for a medium-sized company, but this industrial fair alone shows that it pays off to be leaders in the field of technology". That was how Horst Maywald, Sales and Marketing Director of Elabo, put it during the internal closing event at the fair. His remarks were strongly underscored by the record number of visitors as well as the numerous interesting projects that will be implemented in the coming months.
