Technical seminar line-up to power SteelFab 2012   

Khaleej Times - 07 January, 2012

The upcoming steel fabrication and metal working trade show — SteelFab 2012 — will be powered by a line-up of technical seminars that take up key topics ranging from welding and cutting to materials handling and dust collection.

SteelFab 2012 will be held at Expo Centre Sharjah from January 9 to 12, with the technical seminars being held on the second the third days of the show. Organised by Expo Centre Sharjah with the support from the Sharjah Chamber of Commerce and Industry, SteelFab 2012 will feature 216 direct exhibitors and more than 600 brands from 26 countries. It will feature machinery and equipment in metal forming, welding and cutting, surface preparation and finishing, grinding and cutting, machining and other allied engineering disciplines.

“Apart from disseminating knowledge, technical seminars offer an opportunity for visitors to check out latest product offerings, their uniqueness and effectiveness, technical innovations, industry developments and listen to people who are professionals in their respective area of expertise,” said Saif Mohammed Al Midfa, director-general of Expo Centre Sharjah.

“This is an added benefit for visitors since they are not only benefiting from an exhibition which is the largest show of its kind in the entire Middle East and North Africa region, but can also make the most of these knowledge-sharing platform held alongside,” he added.

Materials handling is one of the new special focus areas of SteelFab 2012 and two of the technical seminars will be dedicated to ‘modern crane technology’ and ‘magnetic lifting solutions’.

“Increasing industrial activity has led to automating materials handling in various industries, especially in the steel industry, thus bringing in more production efficiency. But the need of the hour is to ensure that the right kind of machinery and equipment are used and worker safety is taken care of,” Midfa said.

These sessions will be handled by executives from Abicor Binzel, HCG Profiling Equipment, Airblast, Idronic PTY, Celada ME, MEC Shotblast, 3M, Tekla ME, ABB Robotics, Merkle Welding, Kone Cranes, Sarda Magnets, Worklogix Middle East, Camfil Farr APC, Lorch ME and NKO Bevelling Machines.

“These seminars will be an invaluable experience for the regional metal-working, metal-manufacturing and steel fabrication industry,” he added.
