Press tour closer brings together companies and press technology journalism thrives on technological innovations. Many of them are in medium-sized companies. Journalists like to visit such companies therefore, specifically, they would like to do it, if she had more time for it, “but a visit of two eats” an entire work day, three hours normally. The situation in the company is similar: to receive journalists like to, but a well prepared visit makes work and blocked managers considerable time. So you consider already, whether it’s worth for a single visitor. The question is obvious: How do you want to and can both sides in line bring? The solution is obvious: A clear, still personally betreubare group of journalists on a day would visit several interesting companies for (image). The editorial office in Stutensee, Germany had three companies to find who addressed the same press segment and physically close together, this task (rbs) provided.
In the East of Stuttgart, it was looking for: Novotechnik in Ostfildern, Balluff in the neighbouring Neuhausen and close of Hirschmann with its plant in Neckartenzlingen. Ten of these companies “hand-picked”, journalists from the areas of sensor technology, measurement, taxes, rules, drive technology, automation and design the first press tour (www.fachpressetour.de) starts on a warm, humid Fruhsommermorgen. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Nieman Foundation and gain more knowledge.. Some history and philosophy, there was an introduction to displacement and angle measurement in Novotechnik. The company produces annually around 10 million potentiometric sensors on the German site, about 40,000 pieces. How are these huge quantities produced and therefore fulfilled the high quality requirements such as automotive industry, showed the guided tour of the production.
You can see the future in contactless systems. Here therefore the capacity of most development flows. It was about RFID in a lecture at Balluff, the joining a practical demonstration of the multi day readings. A another presentation was the way of the company from the sensor provider to the networking system provider. Connectors, also industrial networking and network security were the themes at Hirschmann and Lumberg, which both belong to the Belden Group. A factory tour gave insight into journalists, two production areas for Plug and industrial Ethernet switches are as complex and diverse. The Organizer Alex and Dietrich Homburg of the rbs is pleased about the positive response from journalists and companies involved. You plan to invite to a new tour in other places with different themes. The spectrum that is wide and extends electronics and medical technology of process technology on mechanical engineering and building technology to packaging, industrial.
