CWIEME to hold Americas relaunch event November 15, 2018

CHICAGO, IL — Following the postponement of CWIEME Chicago 2018, new owner ITE Group has announced the rebranding of the conference and exhibition as CWIEME Americas and is holding a relaunch event, focused on networking and education, at the Hyatt Regency Chicago hotel on November 15, 2018.

Loyal CWIEME Chicago attendees and exhibitors are invited to join the CWIEME team at an exclusive relaunch of the leading conference and trade show for electric motor, generator and transformer manufacturing.

The relaunch event, to be held from 3pm on November 15 at the Hyatt Regency Chicago hotel, will reveal new owner ITE Groups exciting plans for the transformation of CWIEME Chicago, rebranded as CWIEME Americas. Members of the CWIEME team, who attendees and exhibitors are used to working with, will be on hand to answer questions and provide some familiarity and reassurance during this period of change.

The change of name to CWIEME Americas reflects the wider appeal of the event to participants from the rest of the U.S., Canada, Mexico and Latin America, as well as ITEs ambitions for the expansion of CWIEME in the Americas.

ITE Group has embarked on a significant program of investment in CWIEME Americas 2019, with the aim of supporting manufacturers and suppliers to achieve considerable growth over the long term.
"The U.S. production market for electric motors, transformers and generators (EMTG) is the second-largest globally. Add in Canada, Mexico and Latin America and we see enormous potential for CWIEME Americas to become a global meetingplace for those in the automotive, construction, HVAC and power generation industries," said Alison Jackson, managing director for CWIEME.

The CWIEME Americas 2019 launch event will also add value to participants through the opportunity to network and a series of short industry talks and panel discussions, providing expert guidance on the latest technology trends, business analysis and market developments. The insight and connections the agenda promotes aim to spark new opportunities for growth, development and collaboration.

Industry gamechangers
Speakers will include Daniel Saban, chief engineer at electric aviation pioneer Zunum Aero, on opportunities for electric motor designers, manufacturers and component suppliers in the aerospace sector; Anderson Pacheco, staff manufacturing engineer at Tesla, on meeting cost and lead time pressures in e-mobility; and Saqib Saeed, principal analyst at Power Technology Research, on the market drivers boosting the North American power generation and transformer industries.

The CWIEME Americas 2019 launch event is free to attend but places are strictly limited to 60 people with a maximum of three participants per company. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

"Were not simply content for CWIEME to be the leading exhibition and tradeshow for electric motors, generators and transformers in the Americas; we want to put CWIEME Americas 2019 on the global stage and deliver a truly outstanding event that is key to doing business in this industry," Jackson said. "We look forward to welcoming friends and colleagues to the CWIEME Americas launch event next month as we kick off our transformation journey."

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
