Milan, Italy -- The Cannon Group will be showing its latest developments in equipment for composites, polyurethanes, epoxies and thermoforming on its booth (N° G12 - Hall 1) the JEC 2009 composites show, being held in Paris 24 -26 March 2009.
Cannon said in a 9 Feb announcement that, "In spite of the current general situation, Cannon is still trusting the exhibition as a tool."
It is showing this commitment by opening, in the space of ten days, four major exhibition stands: at Plast '09 in Milan, JEC in Paris, UTECH 2009 in Maastricht and Mosbuild in Moscow.
While acknowledging that this "is quite a commitment, both in terms of financial effort and human resources," Cannon said this is evidence of its continuing policy of direct contact with existing and potential customers.
Cannon said its experts on duty at these four shows will be supported by a new edition of the Cannon News, with the latest information on its many technologies.
At the JEC 2009 show, Cannon will offer a wide number of innovative solutions for the wind generation industry:
• dosing machines for polyurethane inserts to replace the use of balsa wood
• new dosing machines for Epoxy resin infusion in the largest blades
• dosing machines and presses for DCPD (DiCycloPentaDiene) resins to produce large, thin, high-modulus structural parts without glass reinforcement.
Cannon said it will also show co-injection and reinforced spray technologies for polyurethanes, for an increasingly wide number of industrial applications, including SoliStream for dosing fillers and solids directly into polyurethane mixing heads.
The Milan-headquartered group said it will also highlight what it calls "The world's widest network of service centres for polyurethane processors."
