SPS Celebrates its 30th Anniversary

When it was launched in 1990, SPS took place in Sindelfingen. It was a trade show and accompanying congress with a total of 63 exhibitors and 3,420 visitors. Five of the companies that exhibited at the very first show are this year also celebrating their 30th anniversary as exhibitors at the event: Beijer Electronics, Hüthig, M&M Software, Pilz and Yaskawa (formerly VIPA).

The move to Nuremberg in 1997 gave the SPS room to grow, all at once expanding from an exhibition hall in Sindelfingen to three halls in Nuremberg. This change of location also attracted some new exhibitors from around the Nuremberg area. 

More than an exhibition

For many exhibitors, SPS has become something of a tradition: “The SPS has always been a trade show of the highest order and, for the past 25 years, the last week before Advent has become a fixed date in my calendar. As an adoptive Nuremberger, I was naturally delighted when the SPS moved here from Sindelfingen, and I started entertaining the Beckhoff booth team at our home on the Monday evening before the Show. Unfortunately, our living room could not keep up with the growth of the show (or that of Beckhoff), so this mini-tradition was pretty short-lived...,” muses Martin Rostan, Head of Technology Marketing at the Beckhoff branch office in Nuremberg.

Nor was it only the move to Nuremberg that prompted a growth spurt; over the years, the trade show has continued to grow and expand. While the exhibition space has increased from 3,500 m² to 136,000 m² since 1990, many exhibitors have themselves seen significant growth: “SEW-Eurodrive has been a regular exhibitor at the SPS since 1996. Originally starting out with a small component booth of around 50 m², SEW-Eurodrive has grown with the trade show. This year, we will be showcasing practical solutions, ranging from smart components and intelligent machine automation through to digital cloud applications, on 1,620 m² of exhibition space. For us, SPS - Smart Product Solutions remains the most important trade show for industrial automation,” sums up Heiko Füller, Head of Market Management at SEW-EURODRIVE.

Recipe for success

Today, SPS is the platform for smart and digital automation. It offers a meeting place for expert visitors and exhibitors with a focus on practical, intelligent solutions for the challenges of today and tomorrow. In Nuremberg, exhibitors will be showcasing their existing product ranges as well as their very latest product innovations, giving the visitors a comprehensive picture of the market. Something that is greatly valued by the exhibitors who have been returning to the SPS for many years:

“I have only good things to say about the SPS—it offers the ideal environment for exhibitors to showcase their products and the perfect opportunity for customers to research products and services.” Matthias Schagginger, Product Line Manager, Bachmann electronic GmbH (exhibitor since 1991):

“For me, SPS is the technology show par excellence; a trade show where innovation comes first and where expert discussions with specialists and customers play a very special role. It takes you right to the heart of the technology—that’s a valuable exchange.” 
Susanne Kunschert, Managing Partner Pilz GmbH & Co. KG (exhibitor since 1990).

“The SPS trade show is an integral part of the annual calendar for Wöhrle Stromversorgungssysteme GmbH and it is great that the show has become such an important event where we can meet and share with our customers and new prospective customers. Like in 2019, we always use the show as the market launch event for our new energy supply innovations. Wöhrle was founded in 1986—and we have been exhibiting at SPS for 27 years now. During this time, we have grown together with the SPS and, like the SPS trade show, have gained a firm foothold in the industry. We look forward to continuing this journey together with the SPS!” Dietmar Ruscher, Technical Director of Wöhrle Stromversorgungssysteme GmbH (exhibitor since 1991).

Metal Bellows Coupling Type EWM

Enemac released the metal bellows coupling type EWM to help the designer in its concept and the assemblyman in its work. The EWM is made of two parts. The first part has a longer side made of an aluminum hub that is connected to stainless steel bellows. A centering collar with tapered groove indicated is located at the free end of the bellows. The shorter side includes the second aluminum hub and a conical lug. The collar guarantees precise alignments of the two hub halves.

Up to 80% of installation time can be saved thanks to type EWM

In case of serial application, the assembly can also be simplified by using a fitted ring. The coupling can be plugged before the installation of the engine on the engine, then it gets “moved together” later. Moreover, in case the hub and the keyway are not immediately consolidated, the hub will not be deformed but the bellows (elastic) will be pressed around several mm. The coupling can be simply extracted. It is available in 9 different sizes from 10 Nm to 600 Nm. It delivers an axial offset compensation between 0.5 and 0.8 mm, and a lateral offset compensation between 0.15 mm and 0.20 mm. The aluminum-anodized all-metal design can be used in a temperature range between -40°C and +300°C.

This facilitates internal communication between operators and machines, increasing efficiency in both production and logistics.

Digitalization at the service of production

The Peakboard-Box is comprised of a single board encased by an aluminum heat-dissipating housing. With an Intel Cherry Trail Z8350 Quad Core Processor, the Peakboard is operated with the Windows 10 IoT Core Microsoft operating systems, further adaptable to fit consumers’ requirements.
