FAIRS 2018



Lately BFE was part of the TESTING EXPO in Stuttgart. Because of the big demand the last years we increased our stuff at the booth this year to 4 people: 

Stefan Riebl (CEO), Thomas Laubenstein (Project & Sales Manager), Daniela Bejarano (Service & Project Manager) and Daniel Breuer (Marketing Manager). 

As BFE was becoming the worldmarket leader for solar simulation over the past few years many new customers from all over the world were coming to Stuttgart to talk to us. 

We feel honored that some visitors only came to Germany for visiting our booth and talking to us in person.

The year 2017 was a very successful year for the BF Group and also for BF Engineering GmbH.

Due to the global demand - especially in the Asian region - it is necessary to maintain an extensive network in the specific area of ​​the testing industry. The fair "Testing Expo" offers the perfect platform to meet old and new customers. The relaxed atmosphere outside of offices promotes partnerships and meanwhile also friendships. At the same time it is also a crucial opportunity to present the latest developments to the industry, as there are many decision makers around. The response during and after the fair was very good with the exception of Korea. While we have good existing business relationships in Korea, it has been difficult to engage with new customers, because unfortunately people did not like to speak English here. Therefore, next year we will not participate in Korea, but will only be represented by our Korean partner company. Instead we are planning for 2018 (January) for the first time a fair appearance in India (Chennai).

Our highlight this year was a 3D simulation of a solar simulation system with the HoloLens from Microsoft. State-of-the-art MR technology (Mixed Reality) projects holograms into the viewer's field of vision through glasses. Within a climate chamber, you can visualize the planned system from the CAD design and determine whether any space problems arise long before the system is actually built. The goggles represent the plant with millimeter accuracy and thus allow very realistic problem analysis. At the fair it was useful to reduce the solar simulation systems by voice to 35% of the original size. The arc movement was animated and represented fluent sunrise to sunset and astonished so many viewers. Our partner for this trend-setting technology is the MVI-Group in Munich. 

In addition BFE introduced a new CI this year to avoid confusion within the BF Group. We are currently working on the new homepage, but you can already see the new design in the following pictures of recent booths:

FAIRS 2016

This year the Testing Expo fair in Shanghai took place for the first time at the large World Exhibition Center in Pudong to comply with the growing demand of the past years. It was the largest testing fair ever held in China and a total of around 5,000 visitors attended this year's exhibition. The 220 exhibitors presented their latest testing equipment on the highest technological level for three days in an international atmosphere. Similar to the Testing Expo fair in Stuttgart, we had a lot of interesting conversations and create new exciting business contacts. Our Chinese subsidiary BF China will look after the development of the new (primarily Asian) projects. Our sales manager of BF China Mr. Ju Xiaofan (3rd from left) was a great help to avoid language barriers with Chinese prospects. On the left is Ben Kwon, our Korean partner of Atics Engineering Inc., a wind tunnel specialist with whom we have already realized several major projects. He supported us in communicating with Korean prospective customers and exhibited his latest development - the hybrid wind tunnel - at our booth. A hand-made electrified model (far left in the glass box) of the hybrid wind tunnel caused a lot of attention and attracted many visitors. The special feature of this development is the simple modular system of the wind tunnel, combined with our solar simulation system for simulating solar radiation from sunrise to sunset. This combination brings the test facility very close to reality and allows any weather conditions to be replicated indoors. On the right of the picture you can see the CEO Stefan Riebl in conversation with Mr. Jenter and Mr. Jehs from our partner CTS-Umweltsimulation, who are specialists for the construction of climate chambers. 

We are very satisfied with the fair and will be exhibiting again in Shanghai next year.

From 25th to 27th of October we will have a booth for the first time at the Testing Expo fair in Detroit. We will be pleased to send you a free entry ticket.
