30 Chennai-based brands – TVS, MRF, Aircel among India’s Most Trusted Brands

Chennai, April , 2017: The most comprehensive study on Brand Trust in the country—India’s Most Trusted Brands—has been released for 2017 by TRA Research, part of the Comniscient Group. Several Chennai-based niche brands have made to the top 1000, showing a distinct favour toward a strong showing, with TVS coming in at rank 34, MRF at rank 139 (also tops the Tyres sub-category), Nissan at 161, Prestige at 221 (leads super-category of Kitchencare), Medimix at 223 (leads the Ayurvedic Bath/Beauty sub-category), Cavinkare at 245, Aachi at rank 289, and Preethi Appliances at rank 357 (frontrunner in the Kitchen Appliances sub-category). Tamil Nadu had a total of 40 brands of which 30 were from Chennai and 19 new brands have appeared in TRA’s top 1000 Most Trusted Brands listings, which scientifically analyses surveyed data from 16 Indian cities on the trust that consumers place on brands.

Samsung has been ranked as India’s Most Trusted Brand of 2017 (climbing 17 ranks from 2016). Sony and LG both retain their 2016 rankings and are at second and third ranks respectively. Apple ranks as India’s 4th Most Trusted Brand and, rising 12 ranks from 2016, makes it to the top 5 for the first time. Holding on to its rank of last year, brand Tata’s trust defies the temporary imbroglio it faced to occupy 5th rank. The 6th position is held by the automobile giant Honda; Maruti Suzuki follows, taking the 7th spot. Dell is at 8th rank and Lenovo, climbing 18 ranks from 2016, features in the 9thposition in the list. Bajaj, a brand which has been in the top 10 in five out of the seven reports, comes in at the 10th rank in India’s Most Trusted Brands list.

  1. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA Research, said on the occasion of the Report’s launch, “Brands from Chennai have been seen to be doing consistently well in the country. In keeping with the committed and determined ethos of the city, niche Chennai-based brands like RMKV, ranked 413; Pothys, ranked 459; Veltech University, ranked 464; Bovonto, ranked 537; and Ramraj Cotton, ranked 563 in the All-India listings have been listed as well. The other brands featuring from the city—Amrutanjan ranked at 627, falling from rank 264 in 2016, and Butterfly Appliances ranked 937, falling from rank 405 in 2016—have dropped immensely in their trust rank this year.”

Brands based out of Bangalore have made an appearance in the overall listings, with category leaders like Sonata (Watches), Kingfisher (Alcoholic Beverages), Infosys (Software Services), and MTR (RTC Foods) holding up the flag for the South Indian megacity.

The Brand Trust Report 2017, the seventh in its series, is the result of a comprehensive primary research conducted on the proprietary 61-Attribute Trust Matrix of TRA. This year’s study involved 15,000 hours of fieldwork, covering 2,505 consumer-influencers across 16 cities in India; it generated 5 million datapoints and 11,000 unique brands, from which the top 1000 brands have been listed in this year’s report.

Statement from TERI | TERI’s Oilzapper technology treats oil contaminated land and sea

New Delhi, 9 February 2017: The massive oil spill in Ennore coast of Chennailast week has affected the livelihoods of fishermen and still continues to posean alarming threat to the aquatic biodiversity along the coast.This is an ecological disaster that needs to be managed most sensitively.

Currently, the oil spill in the collision site at Chennai coast is being treated throughchemical dispersant and through manual cleaning processes. However, this leads to generation of a substantial amount of oily sludge, which also posesa serious threat to the environment and needs to be eradicated completely. The chemical dispersants that are usually used to removeoil spill from sea surface may not be the best solution available because most of chemical dispersants are recalcitrant and toxic and continue to be invisibly present in the water. However, TERI’s ‘Oilzapper’ technology that can significantly assist in the treatment of the oily sludge through an ex-situ operation.

‘Oilzapper’ is a microbial powder that is a cocktail of five different degrading microbes that feed on oil by breaking the different fractions of the complex petroleum hydrocarbon oil. The product is formulated in a manner that allows its effective large-scale implication in different oil contaminated environments – terrestrial as well as aquatic environments. So farOilzapper has been applied in 4 lakh cubic metreof soil in India, including sites in the oil fields of Gujarat and Assam.

The patent for Oilzapper is held by a joint venture between ONGC and TERI Biotech Ltd (OTBL).It was successfully used during the clean-up of the last oil spill in Mumbai in August 2010.

EMO Hannover 2017 once again a trendforum for production technology

 India, 23– 25 January 2017. – 2017 isan EMO year. Following a four-year break, the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector will once again be held in Hanover from 18 to 23 September 2017. “Under the motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”,manufacturers of production technology from all over the world will be showing what solutions exist for generating maximised customer benefits from the digitisation and networking of production operations.”A point emphasised by Christoph Miller, Trade Fair Director at the EMO’s organiser VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), Frankfurt am Main, Germany,speaking at the EMO press conference in Puneon 23 January 2017.At the same time, of course, he added, the aim is also to improve the competitivenessof the machine tool vendors with these new solutions.

 As the world’s premier trade fair, the EMO Hannover scores highly in terms of sheer size, internationalityand the number of innovations unveiled there. By the registration deadline at the beginning of December 2016, more than 1,700 firms from 40 different countries had signed up, with more than 150,000 square metres of net exhibition area.There are over 400 exhibitors from Asia

Anothercategory in the range of corporate capabilities on show comprises productive multi-purpose and specialised machines for ultra-high-quality requirements in large-series and mass production runs. They integrate numerousautomation solutions, from simple pallet change-oversto fully automated storage and handling systems,and ensure favourable unit costs through complete machining and technology integration while providing maximised reproducibilityand availability.

 The performance features described are linked up to new options of the digital world, in order to optimise the processes at the customers’ plants, and to increase availability or output.

 It is here, for instance, that big data come into play, one of the topics that’s being intensively discussed. Forspecial applications in the production environment, the numerous measured and sensor data acquired on the machine’s status have to be liberated from their “data graves”. Detailed analyses extending over large quantities of data contribute towards ensuring early detection of imminent failures, e.g. of main spindles or feed axes, and to predict the moment when maintenance is going to be neededmore precisely than had previously been possible. The new approaches being used in predictive maintenance, based on teachable algorithms, extend far beyond classical condition monitoring of individual machines. The statuses of all machines in a manufacturing system are acquired, centrally monitored on a continuous basis, and the requisite action initiated in response to real status data.

 Entirely new options are thus also opened up for performing maintenance or service jobs. What is called augmented reality supersedes the traditional.

maintenance manual. A service technician finds out what to do using a smartphone or a tablet. Here, a software system detects the section of the machine in which the technician is currently located. Online communication with the machine’s control system thus makes it easier to find a fault. Superimposedstep-by-step instructions for repair replace elaborate and costly product training courses on the customer’s premises. Even personnel who’ve not been specially trained will then be able to take initialmeasures for remedying the malfunction.

 Intelligent production in a network of possibilities

The EMO’s organisersare confident that the EMO Hannover 2017will generate important impetus for implementing the much-discussed concept of Industry 4.0or the Internet of Things (IoT).“In the machine tool, we have long since implemented digitisation,”saysChristoph Miller. “Digitalimages, for example, for simulationshave likewise been possible for quite a long time now.”Under thekeyword of Industry 4.0, the task now is to network the entire production operation, and indeed the complete added-value chain.

In a consistently networked manufacturing line, flexible production is possible with optimised sequences, so that even rush orders in small batch sizes can be handled. Complete networking of the entire production line with real-time communication and control will create maximised added value for companies when it implements horizontal communicationfrom receipt of the order all the way through to dispatch. Within the added-value chain, moreover, it’s important to network not only the component suppliers, but also the logistical partners and the customers involved, so as to achieve maximised productivity,

EMO Hannoverwill showcase examples of best practice for mid-tier companies

Small and mid-tier firms, in particular, are stillfinding it difficult to implement a completely automated and networked smart factory, since this entails very substantial investment.So it’s more realistic tomove forward toIndustry 4.0 in relatively small steps.Numerous detailed innovations create an added value for machinery users andupgrade the competitiveness of the machinery manufacturer concerned. 

At the EMO Hannover,very many of these ingenious solutions will be on show. To give some examples:

  • New methods for intelligent tool management with direct transfer of tool data to the machine, thus reducing the workload involved in production planning
  • Feedback of offline measured data –for a self-regulating optimal process control system for tool grinding
  • Sensor and software systems for simpler, control-system-independent machine monitoring – from the component level to the entire factory
  • Approaches for mastering data transmission and data security
  • Assistance systems for increasing productivity through cooperative networking of machines and ERP systems
  • Businessplatforms for holistic organising of production operations on the basis of real-time data

Communication environments for transparent,independent, open and simultaneously secure data interchange along the entire added-value

flexibility and efficiency. 

  • chain
  • Apps for individually configurable control systems, designed to ensure improved operator-friendliness and expanded connectivity, and much more

 “The inventiveness being displayed in the production environment is enormous,” says Christoph Miller of the VDW in conclusion. The EMO Hannover 2017 will provide numerous specific stimuli for the practical use of new solutions meeting every need, under widelyvarying preconditions.

EMO Hannover 2017 – the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector

From 18 to 23 September 2017, international manufacturers of production technology will be spotlighting “Connecting systems for intelligent production” at the EMO Hannover 2017. The world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking industry will be showcasing the entire bandwidth of today’s most sophisticated metalworking technology, which is the heart of every industrial production process. The fair will be presenting the latest machines, plus efficient technical solutions, product-supportive services, sustainability in the production process, and much, much more. The principal focus of the EMO Hannover is on metal-cutting and forming machine tools, production systems, high-precision tools, automated material flows, computer technology, industrial electronics and accessories. The trade visitors to the EMO come from all major sectors of industry, such as machinery and plant manufacturers, the automotive industry and its component suppliers, the aerospace sector, precision mechanics and optics, shipbuilding, medical technology, tool and die manufacture, steel and lightweight construction. The EMO Hannover is the world’s most important international meeting point for production technology specialists from all over the planet. In 2013, the fair attracted more than 2,130 exhibitors, and around 143,000 trade visitors from more than 100 different countries. EMO is a registered trademark of the European Committee for Cooperation of the Machine Tool Industry CECIMO.

Global machine tool business set to gather momentum in the EMO year

The EMO Hannover 2017 is a good information platform for capital investment decisions among India’s industrial customers 

India, 23– 25 January 2017. The next EMO Hannover will be held from 18 to 23 September 2017. As the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector, it’s the most important indicator for technical trends and innovations in the field of production technology. And it thus also boosts investments in machine tools, production solutions and production-related services. Under the motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the EMO’s organiser, the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), Frankfurt am Main, Germany, will be focusing on digitisation and networking for exhibitors and visitors. “Experts expect networking to trigger a quantum leap forward in terms of improving productivity and competitiveness among users in all sectors,” reports Christoph Miller, Trade Fair Director at the VDW, speaking at the EMO’s press conference in Pune on 23 January 2017. This could also trigger an upturn in capital investment, says Christoph Miller.

International machine tool consumption to pick up again in 2017

Adversely affected by numerous international crises, however, the global

economy is currently in a relatively cautious phase. This applies to GDP, industrial production output, capital investment in the major user sectors for machine tools, and thus international machine tool consumption as well.. According to the VDW’s relevant statistics, the global market in 2015 totalled 68.3 billion euros. For 2016, the British research institute Oxford Economics, the VDW’s forecasting partner, is predicting a fall of 1.7 per cent. The market in Europe stands out as the best performer, driven primarily by the Southern Europeans, Turkey, Spain and Italy. The UK’s industrial sector was in 2016 severely affected by Brexit.Machine tool consumption is predicted to fall by almost a third. Russia’s industrial sector, too, is still a long way awayfrom a meaningful recovery. Here, once again, a decrease in machine tool consumption is predicted, this time by one-fifth. Asia is likewise downsizing its consumption. Only Japan and India are showing a plus. Bringing up the rear in 2016 were the Americas. This is primarily attributable to what continues to be a very difficult situation in Brazil, which cannot be offset even by the good performance of Mexico.

The EMO year of 2017 will see improved macro-economic situational conditions

For the EMO year of 2017, economic pundits are anticipating an improved situation, with investments rising by 1.5 per cent and machine tool consumption by 2.1 per cent. Europe is expected to top the rankings again,

with an increase of 4.1 per cent. The principal drivers continue to be the southern European nations Italy and Spain but France as well, all three of them major machine tool markets in Europe. Some markets of Eastern Europe, too, are boosting this trend. Asia and America can achieve only an underproportional rise in their machine tool consumption during 2017, of 1.7 and 0.9 per cent respectively, but will at least be turning a minus into a plus.

 India’seconomy is targeting growth

India’s economy is currently growing faster than those of most other newly industrialising countries. The nation is benefitingfrom the low raw material prices, a comparatively low inflation rate, and booming direct investments from abroad. Consumer confidence has shown a corresponding improvement. The reduction in the base rate will put consumers in a spending mood for the future as well. Oxford Economics is predicting a rise of 7.2 per cent for Indian GDP in the ongoing year. There are, however, also possible risks for progress here, if, for example, the government’s commitment to reformswere to decline, or positive effects from the reforms were taking too long to arrive.

India’s manufacturing sector contributes only 15 per cent to the nation’s GDP. So it possesses an enormous potential for development, since other nations feature a significantly higher quota of industry. The Indian government aims to upsize the reserves with its “Make in India” campaign, and with the aid of

A renewed upturn in bilateral machine tool business is being signalled by orders from India. These almost doubled in the first nine months of 2016, thanks primarily to large-scale orders in the field of forging technology.

India, however, also produces its own machine tools. With 622 million euros in 2015, the country ranks 12th among the most important manufacturing nations. To Germany, for instance, the third-most-important market for Indian manufacturers, machine tools, plus parts and accessories, worth 19 million euros were delivered. Here, the country aims to diversify much more widely in the future, not least in textile machines and energy engineering as well. 25 Indian exhibitors have already registered for the EMO Hannover 2017, keen to showcase their range of machinery for high-ranking international production experts from the global elite.Companies participating include Jyoti, ACE Designers, Forbes & Company,and many more.

In order to modernise the above-mentioned sectors, high-tech machines are essential. “This is why Indian manufacturers need comprehensive information on new solutions for their production operations,” says Christoph Miller of the VDW. Exhibitors at the EMO Hannover 2017 will include representatives from all important vendor nations for India’s industrial sector. Machine tool manufacturers from more than 40 different countries, including over 400 from Asia, will there be spotlighting their production technology, ranging from simple, sturdy and affordable to high-priced high-tech. Both stand-alone machines and concatenated systems will be on show,plus transfer lines and large machines, featuring a high degree of automation. “There will be plenty to see at the EMO Hannover on the topics of Industry 4.0 and automation in particular,” saysChristoph Miller. “The EMO Hannover is the ideal platform not only for big investors,” is his explicit message to Indian trade visitors. “We are especially keen to encourage mid-tier users of machine tools to find out in detail what the world of metalworking has to offer.”

 There is quite a lot more, however, that the world deserves to know about India. This is why the VDW has included an India Day in the EMO Hannover’s supporting programme. On 20 September 2017, Indian experts will be

reporting on technical and commercial trends in their homeland, and mapping out the resultant challenges for production technology.

EMO Hannover 2017 once again a trend forum for production technology

Chennai 23 January 2017– 2017 is an EMO year. The world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector will be held in Hanover from 18th to 23rd September 2017,announced key speakers Mr. Christoph Miller, Managing Director EMO Hannover at VDW, Frankfurt, and Dr. Andreas Gruchow, Member of the Board, Deutsche Messe AG, at apress conference in Pune on Monday. The trade fair showcases the trends and innovations in the field of production technology.

EMO Hannoveris being organised by the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), Frankfurt am Main, Germany, on behalf of the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries (CECIMO) from Brussels, Belgium, and in conjunction with the trade fair hosting company Deutsche Messe AG, Hanover, Germany. VDW is one of the few sectoral organisations that holds international trade fairs on its own account for the segment it represents.

EMO Hannover scores highly in terms of the sheer size, internationality and the number of innovations. Over 1,700 firms from 40 different countries have signed up for this year’s trade fair, with more than 150,000 square metres of net exhibition area. There are over 400 exhibitors from Asia alone. “The current registration status is significantly above the comparable figure for the previous event,”says Miller, Trade Fair Director, VDW.

The trade fair aims to engage in the discourse of manufacturing production technology from all over the world, showing what solutions exist for generating maximised customer benefits from the digitisation and networking of production operations. It also aims to improve the competitiveness of machine tool vendors with new solutions.

“The EMO Hannover is not only the most important meeting point for all players in the metalworking sector, both manufacturers and users. It is traditionally seen as an innovation forum and a trend-setter as it addresses important issues in the world of metalworking, and drives them forward,” Miller says. A wide and varied supporting programme will take place this year, addressing technical and commercial issues.

The paramount topics of discussion in the international world of production technology are digitisation and networkingas the EMO’s motto communicates. Mechanical sturdiness, dependable components, reliable machinery control systems, plus intelligent process design and control—these are the foundations for quality, productivity and cost-efficient manufacturing. A broad spectrum of different machines for this purpose will be showcased at the EMO Hannover as well as classical performance features to approaches for new capabilities.

‘India Day’ at the EMO Hannover 2017

Currently, India is the only BRIC nation to report significant growth in industrial production output and capital investment. In the machine tool industry, the country ranks 8th among the world’s largest markets, with a volume of most recently 1.6 billion euros in 2015, which corresponds to a growth rate of 7 per centwhen calculated in euros.

The EMO Hannover 2017 will focus on this attractive, high-potential market.The “India Day” on 20th September 2017 will feature reports exclusively from Indian experts, including representatives of the machine tool federation IATMA. Representatives from Indian user sectors will be addressing technical and commercial trends from the automotive and aviation industries.

India’s economy is targeting growth

India’s economy is currently growing faster than other industrial countries. The manufacturing sector contributes only 15 per cent to the nation’s GDP and hence there is enormous potential for growth. The Union government aims to upsize the reserves with its “Make in India” campaign, and with the aid of capital investment from abroad.

India also produces its own machine tools. With 622 million euros in 2015, the country ranks 12th among the most important manufacturing nations.Indian exhibitors have already registered for the EMO Hannover 2017, keen to showcase their range of machinery for high-ranking international production experts from the global elite. Companies participating include Jyoti, ACE Designers, Forbes & Company, and many more.

“Indian manufacturers need comprehensive information on new solutions for their production operations. Exhibitors at the EMO Hannover 2017 will include representatives from all important vendor nations for India’s industrial sector,” says Christoph Miller of the VDW. On 20th September 2017, experts will be reporting on technical and commercial trends in India and mapping out the resultant challenges for production technology.The EMO Hannover 2017 will provide numerous specific stimuli for the practical use of new solutions meeting every need, under widely varying preconditions.

EMO Hannover 2017 – supporting events address trends for production technology

India, 23 – 25 January 2017. – From 18 to 23 September 2017, the EMO Hannover, the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector, will once again be opening its doors. It’s the biggest internationalmeeting point themed around metal. Manufacturers from all over the world will, under the motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”,be showcasing their products, solutions and services for mastering the challenges involved in industrial production operations duringthe ongoing decade.

“The EMO Hannover is not only the most important meetingpoint for all players in the metalworking sector, both manufacturers and users. It’s traditionally also an innovation forum and a trend-setter,” says Christoph Miller, Trade Fair Director at the EMO’s organiser, the VDW (German Machine Tool Builders’ Association), Frankfurt am Main, Germany, speaking at the EMO’s press conference in Pune on 23 January 2017. And headds: “This is why it addresses the important issues in the world of metalworking, and drives them forward.” Awide andvaried supporting programme will in 2017 once again be addressing both technical and commercial issues.
Special show on Industry 4.0
The megatrend of networking is the major focus at the EMO Hannover 2017, not least in a special show called the “Industry 4.0 Area”, organised by the German Konradin Media Group. The Industry4.0 Area sees itself as a platform for mutual professional feedback between expertswithin the international community, and builds bridges between the academic world and the people on the shop floor. University and Fraunhofer institutesspecialising in production technology will be presenting the status of their researches, while representatives of the industrial sector will be showing solutions for how to implement these in practice.

The programme includes bothinitiativesof the German states and international activities, such as the German Industry 4.0 Platform, the Industrial Internet Consortium from the USA, the Alliance Industrie du Futur from France, Made in China 2025, the Industrial-Value-Chain-Initiative from Japan and others. The initiatives are currently putting together their work programmes, and are looking for cooperation partners.The German Industry 4.0 Platform, for instance, has already got together with the Americans, the French, the Chinese and the Japanese. The special show is rounded off by a lecture forum, in which eminent academics can present their latest findings and firms can showcase their corporate capabilities.

Increasing presence of additive processes in production operations
Not only Industry 4.0, but also additive manufacturing (AM) is meanwhile on everyone’s lips among international production specialists. A recent study commissioned by the VDW shows that 3D printing is admittedly still a niche phenomenon in production operations at present, but the sector is nonetheless growing exponentially. Experts expect this to continue in the years ahead. In the mechanical engineering and automotive industries, particularly, in medical technology, and in the aerospace industry, this technology is alreadybeing used. In these sectors, there are meanwhile some initial standard products that are being manufactured using additive processes.

The EMO Hannover 2017 will be showcasing the very latest developments in additive manufacturingfor the metalworking sector, and will be a source of ideas for visitors as to which applications can be utilisedwith particular cost-efficiency using additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing as aproduction process intermeshes with other major elements in the value-added chain, principally CAD and simulation, reworking, production metrologyand quality assurance. Besides additive manufacturing systems pure and simple, hybrid machines are also being created. Many classical machinery manufacturers are already involved in this field, and are integrating the process intotheir machines. “This is for some user sectors a very interesting solutional approach,”says Christoph Miller.

Because of the limited surface quality, support structures and functional surface areas, which are removed, most additively manufactured components have to be reworked if they are to satisfy stringent expectations. A study commissioned by the VDW predicts a corresponding rise in demand forprecision machining equipment.

Together with the EuropeanAssociation of the Machine Tool Industries(CECIMO) and the Additive ManufacturingWorking Group in the VDMA (German Engineering Federation), a conference on this subject is planned at the EMO Hannover.

Trends in metal-cutting – WGP Symposium “Production for tomorrow”
The German Academic Society for Production Engineering (WGP) will on 21 September 2017 at the EMO Hannover be hosting a symposium entitled “Production for tomorrow”. The WGP’s members comprise 35 institutes for production technology at German universities and Fraunhofer institutes,which means the entire spectrum of academic expertise in production technology can be tapped here.

“The symposium at the EMO Hannover will render this knowledge accessible to the fair’s visitors as well,” says Christoph Miller. Six path-breaking innovation projects featuring topics relating to production technology will be presented.

For example, academics at the Institute for Production Management, Technology and Machine Tools atDarmstadt University of Applied Science have developed a hybridprocess for handling difficult-to-machine materials. In the aerospace industry, manufacturers are increasing their use of alloys based on titanium and nickel, because they exhibit higher mechanical strengthand are resistant to corrosion. This, however, leads to rapid wear and tear on the tools involved. In the hybrid high-performance process developed in Darmstadt, the component concerned is heated up by induction in the process at defined points, and thus becomes less mechanically strong. Simultaneously, the tool is cooled by a cryogenic medium, and then becomes more robust. Wear-and-tear studies have established that the tool life for tangential millingmachines is extended by more than 100 per cent compared to conventional machining.

A second project from Bremen University shows how an efficient feed of liquid during metal-cuttingimproves chip removal. Thermodynamic stresses on the component can thus be reduced and productivity increased. Optimised nozzle systems ensure a minimised flow of liquid, so that energy consumption is downsized,with concomitant gains in the cost-efficiency of the process.

Special stand for aerospace technology showcases the process chain used in metal-cutting
The MachiningInnovations Network is an alliance of companies and research institutes that have created a shared integration and partner platform in the technological field of metal-cutting. At theEMO Hannover 2017, the network will be organisinga special stand showcasing a process chain for manufacturing a component from the aerospace industry.The idea is to show all the steps involved, from initial planning all the way through to follow-up processing. This will include the aspects of simulation, tools, process monitoring, machine control systems, and much more.

“The special show is, of course, directed particularly at customers from the aerospace industry,” explains Christoph Miller of the VDW. The individual solutions, however, can also be transferred to other process chains, and are thus of equal interest to trade visitors from other branches of industry.

Seminar on machine safety at the EMO Hannover
The safety of machine tools isalways a prioritised concern inthe sector. The avoidance of accidents and protection of staff are the principal focuses here. Despite the substantially greater complexity of the machine technology involved, the absolute accident figures have exhibited a significant decline over recent years. This shows that the machinery manufacturers are embracing their responsibilities. Machines designed in conformity with contemporary standards are safe – that is unquestioned. A further improvement can be achieved only in a dialogue with machine owners and the occupational safety authorities.

International experts from all three fields will at the “EMO Safety Day for Machine Tools” be spotlighting the current status of development work, and reporting on the most recent changes, in terms of standardisation, for example, which is currently being revised. Another important aspect is the skills and knowledge of the staff at market regulatory agencies. They have to be able to recognise machines that do not conform to the present-day state of the art, and to take these out of circulation for everyone’s benefit. This is why the European Associationof the Machine Tool Industries(CECIMO) is issuing another new volume from a series of CE Guides, this time on the safety of milling machines. It describes in simple terms the most important safety features involved, so as to provide practical assistance not only to the market regulators but also to prospective purchasers. Because only those machine tools are really safe that are in conformity with the relevant standards andare being used for their intended purpose.

India Day at the EMO Hannover 2017
At the EMO Hannover, it is not only technical trends that are showcased, but particularly interesting markets as well. India, for example,is currently the only BRIC nation to again be reporting significant growth in industrial production output and capital investment. In the machine tool industry, the country ranks 8th among the world’s largest markets, with a volume of most recently 1.6 billion euros in 2015, which corresponds to a growth rate of seven per cent when calculated in euros. India imports almost all of its machine tools, with deliveries in 2015 worth a total of around 1.1 billion euros. Which is why the EMO Hannover 2017 will be focusing once again on this attractive, high-potential market.

The “India Day” on 20 September 2017 will feature reports exclusively from Indian experts, including representatives of the machine tool federation IATMA. Representativesfrom Indian user sectors will be addressing technical and commercial trends from the automotive and aviation industries. The resultant requirements in India for production technology will also be covered. Anyone interested in setting up a sales or even a production subsidiary in India will also find information on staff training and strategies for recruiting and bonding suitable employees.

Recruitment: “Do something with a future! Your opportunities in mechanical engineering”
Employees in the machine tool industry and the relevant user sectors are facing radical transformations. New technologies and changes to existing processes in the production operations involved are altering the role of the skilled worker. A challenge that first of all needs to be met and mastered by instructors and teachers. It is theywho have to be methodically and expertly skilled, so that they can pass on their knowledge to the newly recruited staff, and assure fit-for-purpose training.

In line with a long-standing tradition, the VDW’s Youth Foundation, renamed as the “Mechanical Engineering Youth Foundation” at the beginning of 2017,is organising the special stand for young people at the EMO Hannover 2017. Under the motto of “Do something with a future! Your opportunities in mechanical engineering”, it is aimed at instructors, teachers and schoolchildren alike. The goal is to heighten awareness among these groupings that they will have to keep pace with the increasing speed of innovation in the field of production technology,by means of individualised advice and specific assistance. Future specialists need to be properly prepared both at school and in the companies involved to cope with the new requirements concerned. For this purpose, all those participating in the training process, including ministries, schools, teachers andsectoral associations, should work fruitfully together.

“Recruitment initiatives are a traditional element at the EMO Hannover,”reports Christoph Miller. They concentrate on awakening interest amongfuture skilled recruits. Since 2001, schoolchildren seeking to choose a career have been invited to the EMO Hannover. At the special stand for young people, they can learn everything they need to know about metal-related professions, training contents, and opportunities for advanced training, career-building and earnings. Since then, more than 40,000 young people have gained the information they wanted at the EMO Hannover.

Finding the right personnel at the recruiting platform of the EMO Hannover 2017
Companies are looking not only for newcomers, but also for well-trained young professionals, if possible multilingual and with international experience. This applies to staff in both technical and commercial departments. A recruiting platform at the EMO Hannover matches up the requirement profiles of the companies concerned and the qualifications of the applicants involved.

“Start-ups for intelligent production”at the EMO Hannover 2017
The rapid pace of technical change means that new firms are being set up. Young entrepreneurs, for example, are developing software for networking machines and processes, or are building 3D printers for metal components. They base their start-ups on research projects at the universities, or open a company on a greenfield site.

It is these firms, with a turnover of up to 10 million euros, that the EMO Hannover 2017 aims to offer a platform under the motto of “Start-ups for intelligent production”. The aim is to assist young companies in marketing their innovations. With fresh ideas and new products or services, they are much-sought-after business associates for many established vendors. “The special stand devoted to “Start-ups for intelligent production”is designed to assist newly founded companies who want to showcase their capabilities in an innovative business environment and penetrate the international market,”explains Christoph Miller of the VDW. It picks up on the EMO’s motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production” and provides a live demonstration, as it were, of the opportunities offered by networking, and how it is generating new ideas and business models.

Inside the special stand, an area is reserved for the “Innovations made in Germany” project. This is aimed at German firms that have been recently founded, and is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.

Enterprise Europe Network
Once again, the Enterprise Europe Network will be organising meetings for entrepreneurs at the EMO Hannover 2017. During the run-up to the fair, the online platform will already be brokering suitable discussion partnersfor defined topics. Thanks to the mutual interests involved, these meetings are fruitful and efficient. This, at least, was the verdict of the participants in the entrepreneur meetings held in 2013. Back then, 315 participants from 287 firms and 28 different countries attended more than 600meetings brokered by the Enterprise Europe Network. They anticipated numerous alliances and orders as a result.

Trendsetter for international production technology
“For the EMO Hannover, there will once again be an interesting and comprehensive programme of supporting events,”Christoph Miller promises. “It will offer many visitors and exhibitors relevant tie-ins with the ongoing topics and discussions in their own companies,”he adds. The EMO sets the trends for production technology in the years ahead, he continues.This applies both for machine tool technology and for developments in terms of strategies and markets. Topics and trends initiated at the EMO Hannover will still be subjects for detailed discussion many weeks and months after the event’s conclusion.

Nobel Hygiene & Lions Clubs to help more than 50,000 Elderly Population every year
 Nobel Hygiene, a market leader in adult diapers, in association with Lions Clubs International (India), the world’s leading humanitarian organisation, have signed a MoU to supply adult diapers to elderly people in old age homes across the country, at a 50% concessional rate, every year.

This initiative is focussed on the frequent problem of adult incontinence or the involuntary release of urine, commonly faced by the elderly population. Through a network of 6,400 Lions Clubs in India, Nobel Hygiene is planning to provide a benefit of more than Rs. 30 crores to at least 1,000 old age homes, annually.

Speaking on the occasion of signing the MOU with Lions Clubs, India, Mr. Kamal Johari, Managing Director of Nobel Hygiene, said, “In India, around 9 crore people are above 60 years of age and this figure is expected to touch 30 crores by 2050. Nobel Hygiene has always believed that each and every senior citizen ought to live a dignified life. Living with urinary incontinence restricts movements and impacts the confidence of the elderly. Our aim is to enable them overcome this problem and lead an active life.”

Old age is often referred to as the return of one’s childhood. Aging brings with it the onset of various biological problems. One of the most common problems is urinary incontinence which causes severe distress and adversely affects the quality of life for persons suffering from it as well as their families.

Several adult diaper brands are available in the market today which gives confidence to elders facing the problem of incontinence to move around without the fear of social stigma. However, the elderly population residing in old age homes, and who suffer from this problem, are often times unable to afford adult diapers.

It is normally seen that elders suffering from incontinence may need around 2 to 3 diapers daily, costing about Rs.3,500 per month, which is often not affordable for the elderly who reside in old age homes. This partnership aims to address this issue.
Dr. Neville A. Mehta, International Secretary of Lions Clubs – India, South Asia & East Africa, said, “We are happy to be associated with an Indian leader for such a cause. Adult incontinence is not a disease and there is no need for the elderly to suffer the humiliation that comes with it. With this association we look forward to improving the day-to-day lives of people living with incontinence. Over the past decade, to the credit of many, there has been more visibility and education around urinary incontinence. Yet a great deal more remains to be done to raise the level of understanding.”

About Nobel Hygiene
Nobel Hygiene is one of the leading disposable hygiene products manufacturers in the country with an ISO 9001:2015and CE Certification, headquartered in Mumbai. Nobel Hygiene is the undisputed leader in adult diaper category with their offering- ‘Friends’. Established in 2000, Nobel Hygiene is India’s only diaper manufacturing company with an expertise to manufacture both adult and baby diapers.

SCC, NIUA and Western Digital come together for securing cities in India

  • Surveillance to act as a catalyst for secure cities in India
  • Role of IT especially surveillance is vital for safer and smarter cities 

Chennai, 18 January, 2017: Smart Cities Council (SCC) along with National Institute of Urban Affairs (NIUA) today organized a round table in New Delhi to discuss the role of surveillance for a safe and secure India.

The event also witnessed the launch of the report on “Role of Surveillance in Securing Cities” in the presence of senior government representatives,Mr. G. K. Pillai Chairman, Data Security Council of India & Former Home Secretary and Prof Santosh Kumar, Executive Director, National Institute of Disaster Management, Ministry of Home Affairs. The report has been supported by Western Digital, an industry-leading developer and manufacturer of data storage solutions.

The report aims to highlight the need for surveillance and the role it plays in making our cities secure and smarter. It also provides an analysis on opportunities, challenges and the current scenario for video surveillance in India. The study is a platform to analyse and implement the recommendations for creating safer and securer environment.

Focus Areas:

Ø Surveillance to act as a catalyst for secure cities in India

Ø Role of data and IT, especially surveillance is vital for safer and smarter cities

Ø Urgent need for better storage capacities

India today is on its way to develop its first 100 smart cities. With Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s vision of ‘Smart Cities’, the role of data and IT,  especially video surveillance in enhancing security will become vital. Under the flagship “Safe City” project, the Union Ministry proposes US$333 million to make seven big cities (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Bangalore and Hyderabad) focus on technological advancement.

Speaking at the launch, KhwajaSaifuddin, Senior Sales Director – South Asia, Middle East and Africa, Western Digital,said-;

“With growth of public infrastructure on a constant rise, accompanied with increasing IT and security spending, the surveillance sector is expected to witness a robust growth in India. All these factors pertaining to video surveillance create a lot of data, which needs to be stored for future analysis and monitoring. Therefore, it is imperative to set the video surveillance standards in place to ensure high quality and sustainability.”

The round table delivered an interesting outcome focusing on the real-time, dynamic and world class video surveillance system forming an important key to achieve the vision for secure cities. Video surveillance adaptation rate and increasing demand for high-tech technologies also emerged as an important driver of the outstanding growth of the surveillance market.

The event also delivered a consensus on the government focusing on context specific needs and investing in the latest video surveillance technology with highest-resolution cameras, best quality analytical tools and highest capacity storage 

Mr. Jagan Shah, Director, NIUA stated that, “Video surveillance has emerged as a key component of the safety and security apparatus used by various organisations, both public and private. All state governments need to ensure the security of citizens through a vigilant attitude and zero tolerance toward violators of public safety. Use of ICT and advanced instrumentation is necessary for effective response, along with the appropriate urban planning that reduces dark spots in the city and promotes greater round-the-clock activity on city streets. The powers of planning and technology need to be used in an integrated manner to achieve safe, secure and liveable cities.”

According to Mr.PratapPadode, Executive Director & Founder, Smart Cities Council India“There is a positive correlation between urbanisation and crime. Therefore with affirmative evidence that surveillance does control crime and given the Smart Cities Mission drive, city administrations need to focus on installing and upgrading defined specification of cameras, storage systems and allied technologies. Our research and survey findings have highlighted that the current storage capacity is poor; while the overall surveillance system was rated higher on effectiveness and adaptability. There is need for cameras that can assist in ‘Crime detection’ and ‘Community watch’; while crime prevention, traffic management and women safety are other objectives that are deemed important.”

One of the key survey findings was that ‘large storage capacity’ came up as the number one priority. As hard drive technology continues to advance, it is important to utilise open standards to ensure that storage is scalable and future proof to enable longer retention cycles and broader analytical capabilities.

In addition, advances in IP-surveillance – such as intelligent video algorithms – will make it even more critical to select open storage devices that can handle combinations of data from different sources.

Today in India, video surveillance is not just restricted to Tier-I cities, but many Tier-II and Tier-III cities. An interesting observation which the report highlights is the sharp reduction in violence or crime in the cities owing to video surveillance systems which indicated that it is indeed proving effective in the public domain in India.

In times to come, multiple stakeholders will need to work in tandem with each other and derive impactful measures to achieve a safer and more secure smart cities for the citizens. A dependable collaboration between the public and private users as well as vendors/ installers and policy makers is also of utmost importance. These are the priorities that at the end will help us achieve securer cities through smart surveillance.
