Jena, November 13, 2017 – The success of FiLaC® therapy for the particularly painless and sphincter-friendly removal of anal fistulas from biolitec®, the technology leader in minimally invasive laser therapy, has been confirmed by a recently published long-term study. Very good results in first-line therapy (64.1%) and even better second-line treatment cure rates (85.5%). The study was carried out between October 2009 and July 2014 at the rectum and pelvic floor centre in Cologne (EBZ) by Dr. A. Wilhelm and other researchers on 117 patients.

With ELLA, the new treatment method for endometriosis, biolitec® is expanding its range of therapies in the field of gynaecology. The low-maintenance LEONARDO® DUAL 45 diode laser with its thin, high-quality flexible glass fibers and narrow laparoscopic tubes enables precise control of the laser beam. Initial results of a study confirm the rapid recovery of the AMH value and the significant maintenance of the ovarian reserve.

The biolitec® team will be presenting the whole range of the proven LEONARDO® laser family at booth H46 in hall 10.
The LEONARDO® laser family includes the LEONARDO® Dual series lasers in the 45 Watt, 100 Watt and 200 Watt power ranges, which are all characterized by the continuous use of the two wavelengths 980nm and 1470nm during the treatment. These lasers are the most versatile medical lasers available on the market today. They are suitable for phlebology and proctology as well as minimally invasive procedures in urology, gynaecology, orthopaedics, thoracic surgery and pneumology.

The innovative LEONARDO® Mini has also been part of the family for a year. Weighing only 900 grams this device is available in a version with a wavelength of 1470nm and as LEONARDO® Mini Dual with the two wavelengths 980nm and 1470nm. The small laser can also be used mobile in the established treatment methods of biolitec® for venous diseases, haemorrhoids, fistulas, a broad range of ENT disorders and gynaecological diseases. In addition, the new LEONARDO® Mini can carry out the proven ELVeS® Radial® 2ring laser therapy for the treatment of varicose veins. Sports injuries, inflammations and overloads can be treated quickly, precisely and non-invasively with the 15 Watt LEONARDO® Mini Athletic, which is available in the combinable wavelengths 810nm and 980nm.

The proven, unique XCAVATOR® laser fiber for the treatment of benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) has been significantly improved by biolitec®. Thanks to the optimized absorption capacity in water and hemoglobin, the new XCAVATOR® fiber enables the surgeon to work even faster and more precisely, so that the minimally invasive LIFE procedure of biolitec® can reduce side effects and pain even better than before.

biolitec® also opened its own branch office in Switzerland half a year ago, in order to be able to take into account the importance and high standards of the Swiss medical technology market. At www.biolitec.com, interested parties can find out more about the innovative laser therapies of biolitec®.

The VisionXP+ convection soldering system combines many further developments, in particular with regard to optimising energy efficiency and reducing emissions. Customers can save up to 20 % energy in electronics manufacturing with this system, consuming an average of 10 tonnes less CO2 per year. The vacuum option makes condensation soldering processes possible with or without vacuum for the first time – all in one system! The VisionXP+ Vac reliably vacuums gas inclusions and voids during soldering while the solder is still in its ideal molten state. With a vacuum of up to 2 mbar, void rates of less than 2 % can be achieved.

ViCON: Simple system operation and optimum process traceability
Rehm presents the new ViCON software in the area of smart data and networking, featuring a touch-screen user interface. The German machine manufacturer has developed an innovative solution for easy operability and optimal traceability in the VisionX series. The software can, for example, monitor all values that have changed, or collect and statistically evaluate alarms in order to avoid errors and to optimize machine settings.

CondensoXC: top performance for best reflow condensation soldering
Reflow condensation soldering with the CondensoX series carries out the soldering process by means of hot steam and the Galden® medium. Large, heavy boards can be processed without a problem since the heat transfer is up to ten times higher than with convection soldering. The use of the injection principle and the control of temperature and pressure ensure accurate and diverse reflow profiling. Rehm presents the new CondensoXC at the trade fair. The plant is a particularly space-efficient, high-performance system in the CondensoX series and ideal for laboratory applications, small batch production or prototyping.

11th International Trade Fair for Cine Equipment and Technology, MOC Munich, Germany – 17 to 19 September 2016

cinec 2016: Three Days of Technology and Creativity, Theory and Practice

Revolutionary technology has created new opportunities for cinematography to spread stories and to focus on the challenges beyond traditional markets. Highly innovative, top-class, and creative exhibitors will showcase their latest developments at the International Trade Fair cinec in Munich, 17 – 19 September 2016

Famous manufacturers of cameras like ARRI, Fujinon, Panasonic or SONY have booked their own stands, other renowned brands like RED, Blackmagic, Canon, Panavision, Phantom, and many more are represented by prominent system houses as Teltec, Ludwig-Kameraverleih or Tele-Data. The topics 4k, 8k, HDR, and HFR can be discussed at many places throughout the trade fair.

Optics as central elements of visual design – Uncoated, Vintage, Rehoused, Large-Format, Minis and Master-Primes, Anamorphic Primes or Zoom-Lenses – will be presented by Cooke, P + S, Angenieux, ZEISS, CW-Sonderoptik/LEICA, Vantage or Fujinon, to name just a few of cinec“s exhibitors.

The support industry will also perform at its best:
Visitors will get a first impression even before entering the exhibition halls, as the cranes of Technocrane, Moviebird or Special Grip Hungary will impress at the outdoor exhibition area.
Camera support systems can be surveyed at many stands throughout the cinec show. Gimbals and drones from the global leader DJI can be viewed in action in the Flight Cage at the moving.picture.pavilion. In addition to that visitors can also take a look at Freefly Systems at avt plus.

More than 20 stands will present innovative lighting systems, among them the retailers Lightequip and Lightpower, while Aaton, Ambient-Recording, and Sound-Devices will provide the latest audio equipment.

Versatile equipment, technology for Postproduction, Stereoscopy, Storage, Archiving, Restoration, and Distribution will complete the offer.

And last but not least: Virtual Reality. VR is a hot topic, but it isn“t sure yet whether the technology is more than a promotive hype and will really get suitable for movie production.
The experts“ rating includes the whole range from VR being an „extremely hot industry“ to simply being a „fail“. To create a real feeling for immersing in unknown virtual worlds, many severe neurophysiological (motion sickness), data-related, haptic, and first of all financial obstacles have to be overcome.

However, VR is already strongly established in another rapid growing segment: Medical Imaging is a promising field, where several exhibitors of cinec become more and more successful with their innovative technologies – like ARRI, ZEISS, SONY, Trioptics, Panasonic, LABOTRON or Fischer Connectors. No wonder that cinec“s Ancillary Program will address that topic, too.

The cineCongress as part of the Ancillary Program will again start one day before the opening of the show – this year at the new Post Production Studios „Arri @ Bavaria Film“. Prof. Franz Kraus will initiate the high-level seminar program on Friday 16th (registrations mandatory). The cineCongress will then continue directly at the MOC (cinec’s venue) on Saturday 17th with „camera trends“, latest developments of LEDs, IP Infrastructures, and Virtual Reality. The final day of the program on Monday 19th will cover display-technologies and neurophysiological aspects in the field of film production.

Outstanding innovations of cine technology will again be awarded with the cinecAwards. The awards ceremony will take place in the glorious Kaisersaal of the Residenz in Munich at the invitation of Minister of State Ilse Aigner – a rare privilege which witnesses the importance of the cinec.

cinec 2016: Hightec and Hidden Stars

cinec 2016 – 11th International Trade Fair for Cine Equipment and Technology: 17th – 19th September 2016, MOC Munich, Germany

In 1948, Alfred Hitchcock stunned the world with „Rope“: an intimate play-like thriller seemingly filmed in real time. The director had to create the illusion that this film was made without cuts as back then, the film reel had to be replaced every ten minutes. Last year, Sebastian Schipper delighted viewers with his feature film „Victoria“: the story of a bank robbery, told in a single 140-minute sequence shot. Whilst Hitchcock worked completely in the studio, Schipper“s cinematographer Sturla Brandth Grøvlen“s masterpiece was filmed on the roads of Berlin at night.

The multi-awarded „Victoria“ is just one example of how radically film technology has advanced at breathtaking speed in recent years. Recording capacity and resolution continue to push the boundaries, higher frame rates are enhancing the viewing experience, multicopter and other drones have unfettered the camera and allowed new perspectives. While „Virtual Reality“ is the keyword of today, the formerly much vaunted 3D stereography, whilst declared dead by many, is still making money in the multiplex cinemas.

All aspects of the film industry will be covered in Munich in mid-September. The „city of film“ has always been a center of the Moving Image and the south of Germany is home to many manufacturers with famous names. A leading light is of course ARRI – hardly anything that strives for a „cinema-look“ is made without their equipment today: from the cult series „Game of Thrones“ to the recent Academy Award-winners like „The Revenant“, „Spotlight“ or „Mad Max: Fury Road“ – and indeed all nominees for the Best Foreign Language Film. Another key player is Vantage whose anamorphic lenses were recently used at international productions like „Bridge of Spies“, „The Boy“ and „Independence Day: Resurgence“ – as they were previously in the original „Independence Day“ in 1996. The list goes on with MovieTech and Panther with dollies and cranes, Carl Zeiss with optics, Dedo Weigert with innovative LED technology and Denz with high precision parts for the camera and high-tech industries.

It is no wonder that the industry has its own special exhibition every two years where technicians and filmmakers meet at cinec. This is far from being just a Germans national event as half of the exhibitors come from abroad, with famous names, too, such as J.L Fisher, Cooke, Aaton, CW Sonderoptic, Panavision or Technocrane. System houses like Lightequip or Teltec and rental companies like Ludwig Kameraverleih complete together with their renowned partners the range. There may be bigger shows, but there is hardly another focusing as much on the needs and developments of those who are professionally occupied with the Moving Image. That’s why cinec attracts visitors from all around the world, who want to get a comprehensive impression of the state of the art of film technology.

And cinec is no longer just about cinema: moving images flood the most diverse distribution channels from cellphone videos over UHD-TV to the big screen. How much these practices have become the norm is becoming apparent at the European Football Championship, where remote-controlled cameras on cables above the pitch as well as digital animations provide the perfect overview.

Where so much knowledge and experience converge, is the perfect place to compare and evaluate the developments. The cinecAwards (http://cinec.de/en/award/award.html)are presented in several categories at the fair. The awards ceremony in the Imperial Hall of the Munich Residence will again be a highlight of the show. In addition to that, the cineCongress provides a platform for discussing the hottest topics as well as networking.

Interested exhibitors can still register, all information can be found in the exhibitor area at www.cinec.de/en (http://www.cinec.de/en).

The visitor registration is also already open: Visitors who register online now will benefit from the Early Bird rate.

Frankfurt/Düsseldorf, 30th January 2015: The organisers of EUROMOLD invited exhibitors to information days at the exhibition site in Düsseldorf on 13th and 15th as well as 20th and 22nd of January 2015.

Positive outlook for suppliers of the Moroccan plastics and packaging industry

International trade fair plast expo & plast pack to be held from 3-6 June 2015 in Casablanca

Positive outlook for suppliers of the Moroccan plastics and packaging industry

International Fairgrounds of Casablanca – OFEC

(Heidelberg/ Casablanca) According to a study of the Moroccan Export Promotion Agency Maroc Export, the plastics and packaging industry is the second most important sector of the chemical processing industry in the country. At the international trade fair for the plastics and packaging industry plast expo & plast pack 2015 the organizers expect 180 exhibitors and 3,000 visitors. This business-to-business event with a clear focus on quality attendees is organised by the Moroccan Plastics Federation FMP, Forum 7 and their German partners fairtrade Messe from Heidelberg. It is scheduled to be held from 3 – 6 June 2015 at the International Fairgrounds of Casablanca – OFEC.

The study of Maroc Export, published by the end of 2014, outlines that the plastics industry is the second most important sector of the chemical processing industry in Morocco. 650 companies with a work force of 45,000 direct and 300,000 indirect employees and a production volume of 550,000 tonnes generated a turnover of 1.15 billion euros in 2013. The packaging sector plays a key role in this industry sector, as 38% of sales are generated by packaging material. In particular, the production of flexible plastic packaging is becoming increasingly important. This is reflected in the figures for imports of packaging machinery and materials. According to VDMA-the German Engineering Association, Morocco imported packaging technology worth 96 million US dollars in 2013.

„Especially for export-oriented companies the trade fair plast expo & plast pack 2015 offers an ideal platform for a successful entry into this important growth market in North Africa. The market development is facilitated by the free trade agreement between Morocco and the EU for industrial products, which entered into force on the 1st of March 2012 as well as visa-free travel for citizens of the EU and Switzerland,“ said Martin März, Managing Director with fairtrade. The biennial event plast expo will be held already for the 6th time. With 150 exhibitors from 19 countries and 2,855 trade visitors from 31 countries in 2013, it underlines its status as a confirmed industry hub for Morocco and North Africa. 88 percent of the exhibiting companies said that they would recommend the fair. For 2015, the organizers expect 3,000 trade visitors and 180 exhibitors for the 6th edition of plast expo and the premiere of the plast pack.

fairtrade wurde 1991 von Martin März gegründet. Schon lange zählt die Messegesellschaft zu den führenden Veranstaltern internationaler Fachmessen in aufstrebenden Märkten, insbesondere Nord- und Westafrikas, des Nahen Ostens und Osteuropas.
