tec.News - Issue 12



The twelfth issue of tec.News, our technology magazine, reports on the ways in which innovations are utilized in actual, real world customer applications. Consequently our current title is “Innovations build new markets”. We are covering application fields ranging from steel mills and water treatment plants, to factory automation solutions and the evolution of Ethernet from the office world to the manufacturing area and on to the fields of railway technology and telecommunications. In addition, our present issue is showcasing topics such as wind energy, new microtechnology techniques and the design and production of printed circuit boards. In addition to looking into the pros and cons of switch technology in Industrial Ethernet solutions, the latest issue of our magazine is rounded off by a presentation of our expertise in the manufacture of tools and special purpose machines.

We are especially pleased to be featuring Professor Hans-Jörg Bullinger, the President of the Fraunhofer Gesellschaft, whose article “Taking the lead with innovations” calls for a new innovation culture. As dialogue partners of German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder, Professor Bullinger and Dietmar Harting, together with many other policy makers, members of the business community and major associations have, since the beginning of 2004, been discussing the issues of creating the basic conditions and an environment that will enable and promote the continuous creation of innovations.

The vital issues of innovation – our cover story – hold more critical significance than ever before.

W. Padecken, Chief Editor
