Turck duotec presents virtual trade fair
electronica, the world’s leading trade fair and conference for electrical engineering, will take place from 9 to 12 November 2020 this year – however not at the Munich Trade Fair Centre as usual, but virtually. Turck duotec, an EMS service provider and ODM supplier from North Rhine-Westphalia, will be presenting selected electronics solutions for industrial use, building automation and medical technology on the Internet at the same time at messe.turck-duotec.com/electronica. The trade fair booth is a multimedia offer consisting of exhibits with some animation, explanatory videos, the possibility of a live chat with electronics experts as well as the possibility of registering for a livestream tour through the production facilities.
“Since it’s unfortunately not possible for visitors to come to Munich this year, we’ll be coming to see our visitors instead,” says Chief Sales Officer Philipp Mirliauntas. He sees the virtual trade fair booth as part of a digital service offering not as a replacement for traditional face-to-face communication, but as a valuable complement to it. The EMS service provider will use selected exhibits to demonstrate its high level of expertise in development combined with the versatility of its available manufacturing technologies. Those interested can contact Turck duotec sales engineers who will be available in a live chat on the trade fair days from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm to provide information on a more personal basis. Explanatory videos will complement the exhibits. An animated load cell, which will be used for a fundraising campaign over the duration of the fair, invites visitors to participate. It is also possible to enjoy a ‘live’ tour of the production facilities at the Grünhain-Beierfeld site. After prior registration, a Turck duotec employee will ride a mini-segway through production and stream the images captured using a tablet in real time.
Sensors for specific applications
The booth is focused on sensor solutions for various application areas. These can be a special design of the evaluation electronics, special assembly techniques, circuits manufactured in hybrid technology with a high degree of integration, electronic solutions for minimal installation space, special designs for medical technology, to versions with robust and food-grade thermoplastics, or robust applications for use outdoors or in harsh environments. Also on display will be a new demonstrator for continuous impedance measurement of substances with very low conductivities such as oils and greases. The sensor is designed to help improve the service life of lubricating greases and allow for continuous monitoring of grease conditions.
Mirliauntas says, “In times like these, we are increasingly focusing on digital communication. We’ve built on our experiences at Sensor+Test 2020 and made the virtual trade fair booth even more intuitive and interactive. We look forward to having a great turnout!”
