The EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show

 A prerequisite for the high precision sector

The EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show, the international showcase for high precision technologies in the fields of watch-making and jewellery, medical technology and micro-technology, is the must-attend event for the presentation of products from these segments. The 2018 show sounds promising.

For 16 years, the EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show has welcomed a global flagship of expertise in the high precision sector, including the machine segment, represented by a wealth of companies from the sector.

A highpoint of the 2018 show: a gathering of leading watch-jewellery designers. They will meet to discuss current and future trends and the pivotal role that designers play between the brands and subcontractors active in these segments. Among the names put forward to attend: Richard Orlinski, Eric Giroud, Jean-Marc Wiederrecht and Pierre-Laurent Favre.

2017 saw the launch of a start-up “village”. Building on the success of that initiative, in 2018 the “village” will be expanded to become a veritable hub for European start-ups. “We hope to contribute to the emergence and development of young companies that are keenly focused on innovation and the value added they can bring to the different sectors present at the Trade Show”, explains Alexandre Catton, director of the Trade Show. A pitching space will be made available to these start-ups, which will be given a few minutes to present their innovation to a small and select audience.

The 2018 show will also have a more overtly female presence, with a “Women’s Day” to be organised on 13 June, to showcase the role of women in the industry and give the floor to female company heads, industrial experts, managers or creative personnel who make an active contribution to the tech industry. All too often marginalised in a somewhat masculine universe, it is important to hear feedback from women who are actively involved in the industry’s development, promotion and organisation.

Another topic for discussion at the Trade Show’s famous round table events: Industry 4.0. A much-talked about topic, Industry 4.0 requires objective clarification so that we may fully grasp the significance of this development which is set to progressively change our industrial reality. This issue

will be addressed as clearly as possible with the assistance of prominent personalities and industrialists who are specialists in the field.

The Exhibitors’ Grand Prix, which has become the traditional opening event of the EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show, will once again be awarded to the most innovative company. Each year, this renowned prize puts its winner firmly in the spotlight, assisted by media promotions around the event. It is interesting to note that former winners of the Exhibitors’ Grand Prix have seen their sales boosted considerably as a result of the prize. In 2017, half of the finalists were start-ups. This demonstrates the exceptional array of innovations presented at the EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show.

The EPHJ-EPMT-SMT Trade Show has also just launched its new website in four languages. This site will serve as a year-round window on the activity of its exhibitors and their technological ecosystem, and the homepage will feature news on current developments in the sector.

The website also offers exhibitors a simplified registration method and regularly updates the list of exhibitors registered to attend the 2018 show. The exhibitor list will be published shortly.

Fire Prevention for Biomass Storage Systems

Back in January 2013 a group of experts from around the world came together at an event hosted by The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology, with the objective of trying to identify best practice of fire prevention and management for biomass storage systems. Small fires in biomass storage had been increasing in number as more biomass was used, and the big fire at Tilbury Power Station had recently happened - there was a clear concern in industry that best practice needed to be identified and shared, to bring these problems under control.  
Leading researchers from around Europe attended, and industry was keen to get involved with an aim to agree a set of principles that they could recommend to users of such systems as an appropriate safety "programme" for their storage system designs.  
As well as sharing knowledge and known good practice, this stimulated further research. A second, much larger, meeting followed the following year; much of the knowledge that was exchanged has subsequently been embedded in the design of industry installations at ports, terminals and power stations. Research has progressed further, and more practical experience gained, so we have decided to hold a third meeting to see how things have developed. This will take place at the University of Greenwich Medway campus, Kent on Tuesday 12 June 2018.
What is the aim of this year’s seminar?
We are asking those involved in the industry to participate by attending and networking at the seminar, sharing their views and knowledge to help shape the future. The aim is to set an agenda for putting forward a shared vision of plans for necessary research and improvement of industry practice.
We already have an exciting programme lined up, with the following presenters confirmed:
Southdowne Solutions: Feedback from some biomass incidents
Thorwesten Vent: Fire Fighting methods
robecco: Preventive explosion protection in silos
Yara: Emergency inerting systems: how to avoid dust explosions and smouldering or glowing fires in coal grinding and silo storage installations’
Ramboll: Risk prevention: best available techniques (BAT) for the assessment and optimisation of materials handling design to prevent dust releases, increase throughput and reduce cost / Risk mitigation: some BAT examples of fire and explosion risk mitigation approaches applied to modern facilities
The Wolfson Centre for Bulk Solids Handling Technology: Discussion towards an agreed schedule of Best Practice for biomass store fire protection.
RISE: Recent development within biomass safety research and standardisation
Gexcon / DnVGL : Aspects of dust explosions making research essential
o Occurrence of flame instabilities during dust explosions
o Secondary dust explosions
o Metal dust explosion at industrial scale: scaling
There will be an extensive discussion period after the presentations to share knowledge and experiences, in able to plan progress for the future.
To register:
If you would like to register to attend please follow this link: where further details will be updated as they become available.
Anyone from industry or academia with an interest in biomass storage systems is welcome to attend, although numbers are restricted to 80.
