Successful Presentation at the electronica Trade Fair 2012
Many international visitors at the Johnson Matthey booth
Redwitz, December 2012 – „The electronica fair in Munich this year was once again a success for Johnson Matthey Piezoproducts, " as Udo Zipfel, Piezoproducts Sales and Purchasing Director, is pleased to comment. „We were able to greet many international visitors with interesting ideas for products and have already arranged subsequent meetings with a lot of our guests“. Electronica, the world's leading trade fair for the electronics industry, serves Johnson Matthey as an ideal platform for the presentation of the company’s own products but also as a point of contact for present and future customers and suppliers to Johnson Matthey.
The 25th electronica fair took place this year from 13th to 16 th November. 2,669 exhibitors presented their products in Munich to more than 72,000 visitors from 49 countries. For many years Johnson Matthey has been regularly present at the fair exhibiting piezoceramic actuators and sensors, but also systems where piezoceramic actuators are combined with electronic and mechanical components which are used in various applications worldwide.
The Piezoproducts Business Unit presented a selection of Piezoceramics which are used as actuators or in sensor applications. The main focus was on the broad spectrum of bending actuators used in different applications such as in textile machines, in cars, in medical engineering or in industry. "Since we offer customized solutions, both for the ceramic parts themselves, and in the form of complex modules with mechatronic components, we are able to address the needs of our customers in an even more individualized and comprehensive manner'' as Udo Zipfel explains. “This is also reflected in the long-term partnership with our customers.''
The fair is one of the most important for Johnson Matthey Piezoproducts. The next electronica fair will be in Munich again from 11th to 14th November 2014.
