Laser Stripping Becomes a Reference in the Field of Cabling

PRESS - 06-déc.-2016 23:57:21

  Laser Stripping Becomes a Reference in the Field of Cabling Over the last two decades the aerospace industrial landscape has seen a tremendous surge in laser processing solutions (cutting, welding, marking, etc.). Electrical harness manufacturing is a booming sector driven by the strong growth of aircraft production and the race for autonomous cars (multiplication of sensors and multimedia systems, complexity of the harnesses). The use of high-precision laser solutions for marking or stripping of a lighter, technical and sensitive electric cable is constantly increasing. In recent years, cable laser stripping machines have followed a trend of sophistication, increased power, size and capacity to try to penetrate new markets in the industry. Laselec has chosen to work against the flow by relying on innovation, miniaturization, ergonomics and ease of use. Laselec has developed Sylade, a patented technology for contactless cable stripping based on laser diodes. Sylade technology is integrated in the field of aerospace cabling and offers a level of precision, quality and consistency far superior than that of traditional tools. Laser stripping is establishing itself as the best solution for the stripping of shielded, twisted and multi-filament cables and meets the new requirements of the aerospace standards ASD EN2812, SAE AIR6894 updated and published in recent months. The Sylade products - available as a stand-alone or integrated in an automated harness manufacturing solution- perfectly meets the need for stripping aluminum cables used in the transport sectors as well. Their use guarantess not to damage the ultra-sensitive strands of these new families of technical cables.

Smoove becomes the first operator to provide an African city with bike-sharing program

PRESS RELEASE - 07-nov.-2016 16:43:48

  Smoove to provide Marrakesh with self-service bike-sharing scheme   Smoove becomes the first operator to provide an African city with bike-sharing program     Marrakech will be the first city in Africa to implement a  bike-sharing scheme Launch of 300 self-service bikes for COP22 in Marrakesh (7 th -18 th November) Having already implemented self-service bike schemes in Moscow, Vancouver, Helsinki and Slough, Smoove aims to increase its international presence further and hopes to offer bike-sharing solutions in other parts of the UK. They are currently working on a ‘call for tender’ for a bike-sharing scheme in Brighton    Smoove won the tender organised by the United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO) to roll out a fleet of self-service bikes for COP22, the UN Climate Change Conference, which is taking place from 7 th -18 th November 2016 in Marrakesh. Medina Bike , set up in partnership with local organisation ‘Estates Vision’, will be the equivalent of Boris Bikes in Marrakesh and the first city in Africa to benefit from such a scheme. The fleet, of 300 bikes and around 10 stations, will be installed in the most emblematic locations of the city, such as Koutoubia or Majorelle Garden. The service will be inaugurated for COP22 and will be maintained over time with a renewable contract for an initial term of five years. Similar to Moscow, Helsinki and Vancouver, the low-cost Medina Bike model will include the contribution of a sponsor, which has not yet been selected. Medina Bike is one of the ways to meet King Mohammed VI’s and the Moroccan Government’s goals on practical initiatives for sustainable development for COP 22. The project, which is an initiative of the Moroccan Ministry of the Environment, organised by UNIDO and funded by the Global Environmental Facility (GEF), confirms Morocco’s commitment to the fight against the negative impact of climate change. The twenty-second session of the Conference of Parties (COP22) will bring together 197 states and, according to the organisers, will be the COP of action. “ Bikes were once one of the main means of transport in Marrakesh, but have gradually lost ground. We hope that Medina Bike will bring about a cycling revolution. We are very proud to have won this prestigious tender. It marks our commitment to promote self-service bike-sharing schemes for more pleasant, greener cities. Thank you Marrakesh! The so-called ‘red city’ has made Smoove the first  bike-share provider in Africa! " explains Laurent Mercat, CEO of Smoove. Smoove is one of the leading bike-share providers in the world thanks to its innovative solutions: robust, smart bikes with embedded communication technology (‘Smoove Box’) and light, free-standing stations powered by solar energy with no major or civil works required for installation. Smoove’s technological know-how has enabled it to offer an ‘overflow’ feature so that a bike can be returned even if the station is full. Thanks to these competitive advantages, Smoove has experienced accelerated international growth this year. “ This project in Marrakesh is the perfect way to end a very busy and successful year for Smoove. In spring, we installed a fleet of 1,500 bikes in Helsinki, the capital of Finland, followed by fleets in Vancouver, Canada, in July and in Shymkent and Almaty in Kazakhstan later in the summer. We also carried out the second phase of roll-out in Moscow where there are now more than 3,450 bikes !" comments Hélène Papa, Marketing and Communication Manager. Well positioned to renew fleets in major cities “ Our facilities in major cities across the world theoretically make us a strong contender for the renewal of all the first generation contracts, such as Vélib in Paris ," adds Laurent Mercat, CEO of Smoove. Competing for the tender alongside Indigo, Moventia and their new shareholder Mobivia, all experts in the field, Smoove has been selected in the competitive dialogue procedure to renew the “Vélib” fleet in Paris. Their bid is in progress and the operator will be chosen in April 2017. Smoove generated €8 million (around £7.2million) in revenue in 2016. This revenue, like the number of employees, has doubled every two years since the company was formed. Their 2017 objectives are even more ambitious. Fifteen per cent of the revenue is reinvested in R&D to meet the demands of the city of the future (E Bike, bluetooth connection, mobile application, IoT, etc.) to better ‘facilitate sustainable mobility’.

LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016

PRESS RELEASE - 17-oct.-2016 18:06:52

  Press release October 2016   LASELEC CELEBRATES 15 YEAR ANNIVERSARY WITH ELECTRICAL HARNESS AUTOMATION AT NBAA 2016 Founded in 2001, LASELEC designs and manufactures cutting-edge electrical wire processing equipment: UV laser wire markers, laser wire strippers, interactive harness assembly boards, harness braiding machines. This wide range of products demonstrates the company’s willingness for continuous innovation and leadership in the latest trends in aircraft electrical harness manufacturing – And that latest trend is AUTOMATION ! LASELEC will present its automatic solutions in a special presentation at the NBAA 2016 show:   The RAPIDSHARE Automated Wire Processing Line Prior to RapidShare being launched, the first step in the manufacturing process of an aerospace electrical harness started with the marking and cutting of wires. Next the operator had to manually group the batch of wires. Then the operator would label and sort those batches for production processing before sending them to the shop floor for assembly on a form board. Laselec has initiated the new trend in the harness manufacturing with GE Aviation being the first customer to experience an unprecedented level of automation. RapidShare is a solution designed to automate wire processing production.   The RapidShare robot arm, attached to the ULYS Modena laser wire marker, is able to perform automatic tasks such as:   labelling, stripping, crimping, bundling and kitting processes.   The operator is now free to handle multiple tasks/machines instead of operating a single marking machine for an entire shift. RapidShare’s compatibility with the ULYS Modena line of laser wire markers has allowed companies, such as Airbus Group which owns several Laselec’s markers, to   upgrade to the automated production system that has increased their competitiveness. Also on display during NBAA 2016, is the ALL NEW Sylade 7 laser wire stripper . The Laselec patented laser cutting technology is a safe solution for jacket stripping of MIL-SPEC cables. This all new version features a trigger sensor, auto-select strip lengths and a faster cutting process. With SYLADE, jacket stripping becomes SAFE, QUICK and FUN! The EasyWiring interactive harness form board will be on display at NBAA 2016 as well.   This digital wiring harness board replaces the traditional wooden boards. The embedded software provides a step by step guided assembly processes to increase manufacturing productivity and reduce cabling errors. In addition to Rapidshare, LASELEC has also launched its new over-braiding machine. The BRAIDO series provides complete automation for the production of overbraiding. The software, developed by LASELEC, offers many functions allowing a significant increase in productivity. BRAIDO customers especially appreciate the simplicity of the braiding operation as well as the machine’s impressive speed and low noise reduction. By networking different BRAIDO machines the operator can begin the work on one machine and transfer the job to another machine and still maintain the continuity of the traceability data.

TK’Blue, rating transport to improve its economic and societal performance

PRESS RELEASE - 23-sept.-2016 22:09:36

  Founded in 2011, TK’Blue is an accreditation and rating agency specializing in goods transport. It takes the form of a service platform for the sector’s various players – carriers, shippers and freight forwarders – covering all modes of transport: road, rail, sea, river and air. In line with EU directives, it allows organizations to evaluate and manage the societal and environmental impact of their transport operations, taking into account all the negative externalities engendered (greenhouse gases/CO 2 , particles, pollution, noise, congestion, accidents, etc.). TK’Blue accredits carriers based on an online questionnaire, awarding them a TK’T score in the process. The score is directly proportional to the quality of their equipment, their facilities and the training they offer their drivers. This accreditation is free of charge for road haulage firms. The analytical criteria used are tailored to the specificities of each mode of transport and were selected and validated by experts, scientists and European transport professionals. The TK’T score is the first to offer shippers an objective assessment of the performance they can expect from the transport fleets of their service providers, allowing them to identify any improvement areas to work on with the latter. Shippers can also take advantage of detailed and constantly updated environmental and societal information regarding their transport operations. This allows them to perfectly meet the latest reporting requirements in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and their CSR commitment. TK’Blue’s current clients are major shippers (Carrefour, Procter&Gamble, Sanofi, Castorama, METRO, Adisseo, BIC, Bekaert, Schneider Electric, Séphora, etc.) and thousands of carriers in Europe Philippe Mangeard, President and Founder of the agency, underlined its ambition to “Improve the economic and environmental performance of the transport services provided to shippers by raising the profile of carriers that offer the best equipment and personnel, thereby going beyond a rationale that focuses solely on the price of transport and boosting the reliability, security and punctuality of operations”. Bolstered by its success in France, the TK’Blue agency is now keen to place its innovative service platform at the disposal of international clients, particularly in Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States. It is currently seeking partners and customers who will act as early adopters in these countries.     About TK’Blue: TK’Blue is a non-financial transport rating agency that takes the form of a service platform. It evaluates, rates and values the environmental performance of every stakeholder in the chain – be they carriers, freight forwarders or shippers – in accordance with the legal and regulatory requirements relating to CO 2 emissions and CSR, at both national and European level. Its cross-European governance, which includes more than 60 individuals representing the logistics chain’s various stakeholders, experts and operators, enhances its legitimacy, as well as its credibility, evolution, fitness for purpose and independence in the long term.   TK’Blue and environmental analysis specialists Vigeo Eiris signed a methodological partnership in 2016.
