All major companies are also represented at the International Fair of Surface Technology PROFINTECH (e.g. Rösler Oberflächentechnik GmbH, Surfin s.r.o. and others) and the International Fair of Welding Technology WELDING features Fronius, AIR LIQUIDE, CLOOS, AIR PRODUCTS. ESAB even chose MSV as the only trade fair in Brno where they will present themselves this year.
Technodat together with partners, Evektor and Duratec present a flying F- bike prototype at MSV. It was designed using V6 PLM Express software solutions by Dassault Systemes. "The realization of the flying bike means not just a fulfilment of our boyhood dreams. It is also a twentieth birthday gift for our company, which demonstrates the enormous possibilities that today's advanced software tools offer the industry," said Aleš Kobylík, a member of the Steering Committee and Technodat Project Director. The Flying Bike should have all the normal features of a bicycle - it should be able to get to a place suitable for take-off on its own wheels and powered by the rider - but then also it should be capable of a short and coordinated flight. After considering various options, project designers eventually chose a multicopter principle. The main force required for take-off will not come from the lift on the wings, as in classic aircraft, but from the static strength of six horizontal propellers.
Professional associations invite to the fair
Partners of this year’s edition include the most important domestic business associations and professional associations in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and other fields. They support the Brno trade fair as the greatest opportunity for their member companies to establish business contacts. "The importance of this fair is undeniable, no other event is as crucial as the MSV," believes President of the Confederation of Industry of the Republic Jaroslav Hanák, who is most looking forward to presenting the results of Czech companies’ innovative efforts. "It is clear that exhibitors will offer a number of new products focused on innovative technologies this year, with an emphasis on energy self-sufficiency, savings and automation of production. Who does not hold the bar of innovative quality high, will find it difficult to persevere", says the SPD president.
Professional associations greatly value the choice of this year's partner country and the upcoming India Show. Manufacturing enterprises thus have a way to an attractive growth market opening before them, which they would otherwise have to trail for much higher costs. "The Indian market is very interesting for the association member businesses and the expected participation of 150 Indian companies is a clear challenge for Czech machine tool manufacturers," said Director of the Association of Manufacturing Technology Petr Zemánek. The fair will also include a Czech-Indian Technological Forum, focusing on Possibilities of Mutual Cooperation in Engineering, which SST wants to hold as a parade of innovative technologies that the association member firms can offer to various segments of Indian economy.
