7 Bulgarian companies participated at WIN Automation
with the support of BSME (Bulgarian Small and Medium Enterprises Promotion Agency). "Each stand could generate from 5 to 40 business connections, most of the companies expect more than one business contract for their participation. Some of the participants from Bulgarian pavilion have distributors they are dealing with the expect to contact new distributors on the market. The satisfaction level of the Bulgarian national pavilion was very high", stated Mirella Tasseva from BSME International Cooperation Department.

ELMOT JSC participated at WIN 2014 in Istanbul, Turkey at the stand of Bulgaria. "At the exhibition we presented the following types of products of ELMOT JSC:

• The electric wire rope hoists produced by our company are with capacity up to 32 tones. We presented a new type of explosion proof execution hoist with capacity Qн=3.2t and lifting speed V=2.6/8m/min. This hoist has lower dimensions and weight. The price of the hoist is lower but the operating parameters remain the same.

• Geared motors for traveling mechanisms of cranes, hoists and other lifting systems with large number of gear ratios and output torque M=120 to 755Nm. were presented by the smallest type of the range designed with new motor. We produce explosion proof geared motors as well.

• The electric motors with conical rotor and power from 0.12 to 45 kW for main lifting and travelling mechanism of electric wire rope hoists, winches and other lifting machines were presented by: new series of electric motors with built in load limiter. We presented our motor КГС1608-4; new type of double speed explosion proof motor AKK1305-12/4 Ex.

•We presented our biggest wire rope load limiter BOT1250 for load Qн=12.5tones.

Our visitors were most interested in our electric wire rope hoist and the electric motor with built-in clutch against overload. WIN2014 is one of the world’s largest exhibitions. We had the opportunity to see different products, produced from countries all over the world. Unfortunately, we had some problems with the information provided for the stands of the companies.

A problem for us was the location of hall 9 - visitors could not find our stand because of the isolated location of the hall. The whole organization of the stand was perfect according to the Bulgarian staff. We were able to make video presentation of our company, which is strong point in advertising. We are very impressed by the exhibition and looking forward for new customers for our production as well as new suppliers for cooperation", commented Dipl. Eng. Elisaveta Nikolova, Executive director of ELMOT JSC.

The Hannover Messe 2014 in Germany and WIN Automation in Turkey formed the ideal stage for NearSoft to unveil its strategy for the next steps towards the future of integrated manufacturing ( Industry 4.0 ), stated Vladimir Filipov, manager of NearSoft.

"On the basis of its extensively integrated product portfolio for Manufacturing Operations Management (MOM/MES) industrial applications, the company plans to focus its future development work on expanding its offerings, as well as consistently driving forward development of its Digital Enterprise Platform product - MOM4.

New components have been designed to allow simpler integration into web based Enterprise Content Management Solution for Manufacturing in line with the "plug ’n’ produce" philosophy.

NearSoft offerings are aimed at equipping managers with the necessary tools for implementing ISO and Good Manufacturing Practices standards as well as implementing a true Just-In-Time and Lean Six Sigma in order to achieve Operational Excellence and better ROCE.

A manufacturing operations management system like MOM4 addresses all issues and not only coordinates the processes but drills into detail in all four categories: Production, Maintenance, Quality and Inventory. MOM4 is a universal platform that improves operations across any industry. MOM4 brings all operational data into a single system that can deliver it to users at all levels of an organization - from the plant floor to the enterprise executive level. It keeps business-critical data always online and available", commeted Mr. Filipov.

"The NearSoft presentation at the fairs demonstrated the new MOM4 products, to include the latest standardized by ISO 62240 (ISA95) solutions in Production Scheduling, Capacity Management, Production Execution and Monitoring, Reporting and KPIs, including workflow processing software and Content Management System (CMS) features for highest customer satisfaction in MES/MOM projects.

MOM4 Intranet Solution is a ready-to-use intranet site you can easily install, configure and start using within a few days. It’s a perfect tool for those who need an out-of-the-box MOM/MES intranet solution or who want to have some starting point they can build on. MOM4 is also a great web development platform with many ready-to-use modules.

If you need a custom MOM/MES portal solution, NearSoft provides you with a wide range of features you can use instead of developing everything from scratch or integrating multiple products. The huge interest from our visitors is a clear indication to us of the growing demand for an affordable and configurable Manufacturing Operation Management (MOM)", stated Vladimir Filipov, manager of NearSoft.
