In October 2018 the gates of the Motek fair, the world’s leading event in the fields of production and assembly automation, feed technology and material flow, streamlining through handling technology, and industrial handling, opened again.
The two Solms-based companies, IBC Wälzlager GmbH and ATC Armoloy Technology Coating GmbH
& Co.KG, can look back on a successful EMO 2017 in Hanover. Everything revolved around precision at the biggest machine tool trade fair in the world, held at the end of September. Once again the two companies had a chance to show their know-how and ability for innovation.
With precision to the stars
At IBC Wälzlager everything revolves around precision. Now the advanced technology from Solms is being put to use in the Very Large Telescope (VLT), the largest celestial eye in the world, located in the middle of the Chilean desert.
The Atacama Desert in Chile is the driest place in the world and is also the location to the Paranal Observatory. From there it is possible to investigate heavenly bodies that are well outside our solar system. IBC Wälzlager GmbH from central Hessen provides the precision that is required to take photographs with an angular resolution of a thousandth of an arc second.
The comprehensive range of products from IBC has many solutions for the sector of drive technology in the form of linear guides. In roller-guided systems combinations of sealed carriers with specially profiled guide rails with locating and floating bearings that are easy to install are offered. The guide rails that are matched at their ends can be obtained in almost any desired length.
The W3+ FAIR once again opened its doors at the Rittal Arena in Wetzlar on 21st and 22nd February 2017, this being an interdisciplinary trade show for the fields of optics, electronics and mechanical engineering. IBC Wälzlager GmbH also took advantage of this opportunity, under the trade show motto of "faster, longer, higher ... curious?" to inform comprehensively in person at that location about its new items and innovations and to demonstrate in a most impressive way how important it is to have a presence in the marketplace nowadays and to work in a future-oriented way.
