HARTING Systems showcasing smart SCO solution at the “EuroShop”

Published

on

“EuroShop“ is the world’s largest trade fair for retailing investment products and systems, and will be taking place from February 16 through to 20, 2020 in Dusseldorf. HARTING Systems, a subsidiary of the HARTING Technology Group will be presenting innovative SCO solutions (self- checkout). The SCO area in grocery retailing is where customers scan their products themselves.

At this year’s trade fair HARTING Systems will be showcasing the HARTING cash desk product range featuring extensively upgraded visual elements. The external design has been consistently updated and impresses with linen-grained stainless steel and polygonal corner plates. The new counter cash desk in combination with an extended tobacco infopoint will also be featuring prominently. In addition to the cash desk from the SmokyThek CS it features wooden paneling integrating the TowerlineShop automatic vending machine. This is especially interesting for retail customers that wish to implement a service point or an information desk, combining personal customer interaction with automated support functionalities.

Worldwide, the guidelines and legislation concerning tobacco products are being increasingly tightened. HARTING has acquired in-depth experience in numerous countries and over many years and provides automated solutions for virtually all dispensing regulations in the individual countries.

This is particularly relevant in connection with “plain package“ issues, where all the brand typical attributes are replaced by uniform design. “The sales process is difficult when all the packages look more or less the same, as Peter Weichert, managing director of HARTING Systems commented. The vending machines offer alphabetic listing in connection with the company’s logo – which helps customers locating “their favoured brand.”

The use of automatic vending machines is also ideal in countries with so-called display bans, meaning that it is not permitted to present tobacco products openly and publically. In such scenarios, automatic vending machines can help minimize such sales disadvantages.

HARTING announced its cooperation with the Norwegian company StrongPoint in February 2019. Over the past months the two companies put their heads together and developed a number of modern self-checkout systems that will be highlighted at the Dusseldorf event.

”The new and innovative systems combine efficiency and security with value creating retailing to optimize the retail space and to ensure even better customer experiences”, says Jacob Tveraabak, CEO of StrongPoint.

The conventional cash desk area that accounts for some 1% of the retail floor space generates around 4 to 7% of sales by impulse purchases and tobacco products. In markets without SCO product offerings these sales are lost entirely.

Powered by the bundled competence of HARTING, as specialist for the storage and dispensing of theft-prone products, and StrongPoint, as expert for self-checkout solutions the SCO system with an integrated vending machine for tobacco products was developed. As Peter Weichert went on to emphasize: “Our new solution is probably the most efficient of its kind in the entire self-checkout market.”

The Espelkamp based company continues to place a strong emphasis on economic efficiency, safety and security. Thanks to the new system retail markets have the option of serving three cash desks simultaneously with a single automatic vending machine. From February 16 to 20, 2020, HARTING Systems will be on location in Hall 13, at stand D62 and will be showcasing exactly what this solution will look like.

EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit 2020: New digital EuroBLECH event is looking ahead with a sharpened focus on technology updates, market outlooks and brand-new networking opportunities

Hosted online from 27 – 30 October 2020, the EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit provides a much anticipated trade and networking event for the global sheet metal working community, presenting a broad programme for trade professionals including virtual product presentations, expert webinars, and plenty of matchmaking. Visitors can participate for free and register online from the beginning of October.

The organiser of EuroBLECH, Mack Brooks Exhibitions, has announced a new online event for the international sheet metal working community in order to help the industry pave and shape the way back to recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. The EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit provides a dedicated virtual marketplace for innovative manufacturing solutions, knowledge transfer and worldwide business contacts in a new online format. At the same time, it conveniently bridges the big wait for the physical EuroBLECH event which has been postponed to March 2021.

“When the decision was taken to postpone EuroBLECH, the world’s largest sheet metal working technology exhibition amidst the Covid-19 crisis, we were determined to fill the gap and put all our energies into developing a powerful and focused online event that can offer a similarly high level of attraction to buyers”, explains Evelyn Warwick, Exhibition Director of EuroBLECH.

“The previous EuroBLECH 2018 in Hanover attracted 56,307 international trade visitors and a total of 1,507 exhibitors from 40 countries, so our new virtual summit can build upon a very successful real-life event. This includes the huge EuroBLECH community of sheet metal working professionals and technology providers that have attended or exhibited at our shows over the years. As such, the EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit gives industry specialists and buyers worldwide online access to this expert community, enabling them to witness true technological innovation and product launches, hear insider views about the latest market trends and opportunities, and use amazing matchmaking and meeting facilities, all online, to get back into business again”, said Evelyn Warwick further.

DISCOVER, CONNECT and LEARN: Virtual summit offers three-in-one experience

The EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit is a four-day online trading, networking and webinar event for professionals from the entire sheet metal working technology chain. Visitors can virtually meet relevant technology suppliers, watch informative product presentations, follow talks and webinars on current industry issues, and ultimately source the best technical solutions for their manufacturing processes.

DISCOVER: Virtual Presentations in the Innovation Theatre, Product Showcases and Exhibitor Directory

The Virtual Presentation Theatre, also known as the Innovation Theatre features 15-minute exhibitor presentations on their latest product innovations and technologies, followed by a live Q&A session. Virtual Product Showcases create a virtual stand experience and allow visitors to explore new products and services in more detail. The Exhibitor Directory offers an easy starting point to browse the full EuroBLECH exhibitor list by name. A simple click leads to further exhibitor information, including product showcases, product videos, contact information, and more.

CONNECT: Networking and Virtual Meetings with Suppliers

A new matchmaking system powered by the latest AI technology helps suppliers and buyers make smart networking decisions by suggesting relevant people to meet. Participants can tailor their networking activities by requesting and pre-scheduling their meetings before the event. Arranging for a meeting is very easy and intuitive, with no third-party software required.

LEARN: Daily Webinars on the latest industry and technology trends

A daily programme of webinars by industry experts provides an opportunity to gain useful insights into the latest market developments as well as technical expertise concerning new industry applications and solutions. A special series with focus on the sheet metal working industry in key geographical areas offers an in-depth analysis on the current challenges and strategies to adapt to the Covid-19 pandemic. All webinars feature short presentations, followed by a live Q&A session. Further details on topics and speakers will be published soon.

How the Covid-19 crisis sparks innovation in sheet metal working

The EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit comes at a crucial time when sheet metal production has to deal with the massive impact of the global pandemic and its disruption to industrial production in general. The “new normal” requires companies to adapt to new regulations and restrictions, such as social distancing rules, and to master an increasingly volatile market with sudden drops and surges in demand. All this poses a huge challenge for an industry that traditionally operates with rather long lead times and complex supply chains.

“The key for post-crisis growth is agility, and this includes the knowledge and ability to find the right balance between just-in-time, lean inventory, and resilience”, explains Evelyn Warwick. “The industry will recover, but companies who want to survive and ultimately thrive really need to use the coming months to adapt and strengthen for the future. In fact, this crisis is a big moment for innovation, as barriers that once took years to overcome will become irrelevant within a matter of weeks, opening up new opportunities for those willing to adapt and meet shifting customer needs.”

Industry experts agree that the rise of formerly disruptive forces, in particular digitalisation, robotics and automation, has been significantly accelerated by the current crisis. The survival and long-term success of manufacturers will ultimately depend on how quickly they can deploy this new technology to boost their productivity and ensure full scalability of their operations.

“Digitalisation has certainly set the tone at the previous EuroBLECH 2018”, says Evelyn Warwick. “The last couple of years have brought noticeable technological advancement, and many exhibitors have already demonstrated how well the industry is prepared for digitalisation. At the same time, this technology is changing so fast that it is better to get engaged today and businesses start moving forward. The EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Summit is the only virtual market place that offers the scope, range and professional network opportunities of a big trade event where the global sheet metal community can meet online, discuss their current situation and challenges, learn about the latest market developments, and source the new technology it needs to survive and flourish.“

No HANNOVER MESSE in 2020

Published

By

HANNOVER MESSE cannot take place this year due to the increasingly critical situation surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. The Hannover region has issued a decree that prohibits the staging of the world’s leading tradeshow for industrial technology. From now until the next HANNOVER MESSE in April 2021, a digital information and networking offer will provide exhibitors and visitors with the opportunity for economic policy orientation and technological exchange.

Hannover. The world of industry will not be able to meet in Hannover this year. Comprehensive travel restrictions, bans on group gatherings and a prohibition decree in the Hannover region make it impossible to stage HANNOVER MESSE. At the same time, the corona crisis is affecting the economy, and the manufacturing industry – HANNOVER MESSE’s core clientele – is already struggling with serious consequences of the pandemic. Demand and sales in German industry are declining, resulting in supply bottlenecks, production stops and reduced working hours for employees.

“Given the dynamic development around Covid-19 and the extensive restrictions on public and economic life, HANNOVER MESSE cannot take place this year,” says Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Board of Management, Deutsche Messe AG. “Our exhibitors, partners and our entire team did everything they could to make it happen, but today we have to accept that in 2020 it will not be possible to host the world’s most important industrial event.”

It is the first time in HANNOVER MESSE’s 73-year history that the event will not take place. However, the organizers will not let the show completely vanish. “The need for orientation and exchange is particularly important in times of crisis,” says Köckler. “That is why we are currently working intensely on a digital information and networking plattform for HANNOVER MESSE that we will open to our customers shortly.”

Various web-based formats will enable HANNOVER MESSE exhibitors and visitors to exchange information about upcoming economic policy challenges and technological solutions. Live streams will transport interactive expert interviews, panel discussions and best-case presentations all over the world. The online exhibitor and product search is also being enhanced, for example with a function that enables visitors and exhibitors to contact each other directly.

“We firmly believe that nothing can replace direct, person-to-person contact and we are already looking forward to the time after Corona,” says Köckler. “But especially in times of crisis, we must be flexible and act pragmatically. As organizers of the world’s most important industrial trade fair, we want to offer orientation and sustain economic life during the crisis. We are doing that with our new digital offering.”

Thilo Brodtmann, executive director of Germany’s Mechanical Engineering Industry Association (VDMA), said, “The cancellation of HANNOVER MESSE 2020 is an unfortunate decision, but it is the only correct one. The mechanical engineering industry must now concentrate on minimizing the consequences of the pandemic in its own operations so that it can start up again. In April 2021, the engineers will be back in Hannover in full force.”

Wolfgang Weber, Chairman of the ZVEI Management Board: “The fact that Hannover Messe 2020 cannot be hosted is a bitter loss, but it is the right decision. For the electrical industry, the fair is the showcase to the world, which unfortunately remains closed this year. So our companies will use the time until 2021 to manage the considerable consequences of Corona. Next year, they will then present themselves with the latest products and solutions for Industry 4.0 and the energy system of the future.”

HANNOVER MESSE 2021 will be held from 12 to 16 April 2021.
