Willingness to invest is still there

TEKA finally at the EuroBlech again 
Trade fair EuroBlech in Hanover is one of the fixed dates in the trade fair calendar of TEKA Absaug- und Entsorgungstechnologie GmbH. It is not only regarded as the leading international technology trade fair for sheet metal working, but also as an industry barometer for the mood in this important branch of industry. 

Over the four days of the fair, around 38,000 trade visitors came to marvel at innovations from the world of sheet metal working at 1,300 stands. But there was more than just amazement. Many visitors to the stand of the Münsterland-based filter system manufacturer came with concrete investment plans: "We noticed that many companies want to invest. But then in technologically mature systems that are particularly energy-efficient and resource-saving," explains TEKA Managing Director Simon Telöken. 

The air cleaners again had a whole range of these in their luggage. These were both newly developed systems and bestsellers that are available in various versions and are classics in the range. "We score in the market as an all-rounder for innovative and individual solutions with high service and quality standards," said Telöken. 

As trade fair highlights, the internationally active manufacturer presented its AirCube, which sets new standards in the digitalisation of filter technology, the ExCube for separating explosive dusts and the VarioCube, which ensures clean air in large-scale machine and container construction. TEKA thus also demonstrated innovative strength in the megatrends of sustainability and digitalisation. 

Systems represented at two stands 
The systems of the family-owned company from Coesfeld could not only be seen in action at its own 140 square metre stand, but also at the presentation of the Industry FusionFoundation, which wants to implement Industry 4.0 with concrete added value, especially for companies in the SME sector. There, the AirCube in particular attracted the interest of a large international audience. "It is more efficient, more sustainable and, above all, smarter than all filter systems on the market to date. Digitalisation in extraction and filter technology is thus receiving new impetus and is reaching small and medium-sized companies in particular," Telöken states. 

Significantly improving the energy balance 
The energy-efficient modernisation of existing technology was also a topic of discussion for many visitors. Here, the user can achieve a lot with relatively simple means. "For example, the warm hall air in the industrial plant can be cleaned and fed back into the hall instead of being discharged to the outside. This effective and sustainable principle of recirculating air helps to save energy and thus money in these difficult months." Further increases in efficiency could be achieved by using frequency converters and modern motor technology. "Users can already turn relatively small screws to significantly improve their energy balance," Simon Telöken points out. 

He looks back positively on the trade fair. "We received many orders from an international clientele that are currently being processed. After a two-year break due to Corona and in view of the overall uncertain economic situation, we are very satisfied with the response."
