THE NEW DBS 80 IS HERE
By now, the DBS Series by Mini Motor needs no presentation
Ever since it entered the market, Mini Motor’s family of brushless servomotors with integrated drive has set a new standard of productive excellence in terms of rationalization, integration and performance, distinguishing itself in the world of automation and motion control for its superlative build quality and its unparalleled reliability over time.
And today, the DBS range is ready to impress once again with its newest format, the DBS 80: a brushless servomotor with integrated drive, 80mm switching panel and 48Vdc power supply, capable of producing up to 500 W of power with 1.5 Nm of nominal torque.
The product offers the full set of features that have positioned Mini Motor’s DBS range at the very top of the market. These include:
- the new “open” communication platform, which allows configuration with all the most common primary protocols: EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, Powerlink, Modbus, PROFINET, PROFIBUS, CANopen
- an SSI multi-turn absolute encoder at 4096-PPR, which allows maximum freedom to adjust speed, torque, position and homing
- the compact and seamless integration of all elements – motor, gear and drive -provided together in a single state-of-the-art product
Even more than its predecessors, the new DBS 80 was designed with an eye towards precision automation and motion control, ensuring exceptional precision of movement in any application, with clearlydefined acceleration ramps.
It is therefore perfectly suitable for use in all those sectors that require especially precise and controlled motions, such as the ceramics, packaging and bottling industry.
However, because it is equipped with a single power supply and a single interface module, the entire DBS range represents an ideal solution for automation needs in all areas of industrial production. Its many benefits include:
• easy installation
• fewer cables
• cost reduction
At the launch event for the new DBS 80, the Head of Mini Motor’s Technical Department, Mr. Ferretti, described the framework in which this new product was created and outlined the company’s vision for the future:
“With the expansion of the DBS range, Mini Motor has once again remained faithful to its mantra of motorgear-drive integration, strengthening its position as a cutting-edge
company in the field of mechatronics.
Our partners and customers believe in our work, and like us, they are convinced that the future of automation will be firmly grounded in high-quality design, compactness,
integration and connectivity.”
An important agreement signed with Italgrob, Federazione Italiana Distributori Ho.re.ca., will bring the International Ho.Re.Ca Meeting to Rimini from 16th to 19th February 2019

Beer Attraction is growing and attracting the supply chain’s top events. In fact, from 16th to 19th February, the trade show leader for speciality and craft beers will be taking place alongside Italgrob’s International Ho.Re.Ca. Meeting as well as BB Tech Expo, the professional trade fair for beer and beverage technologies and Food Attraction, food for Horeca and new catering formats. The 5th edition will therefore be full of new ideas and possibilities for insiders and an even more important platform of reference for the entire sector. The new exhibition layout, designed from scratch, is part of the Show’s growth in quantitative and qualitative terms, and will have a new access route: the south entrance, located just 50 metres from the “RiminiFiera” railway station with 16 trains a day at the traders’ disposal. The number of halls will increase from 7 in 2018 to 10 in 2019 with specifically studied itineraries created to guide the various visitor targets.
The planned itineraries between the various events will unwind into two proposals: a tech&beer route, which will start from BBTech Expo in halls C1 and C2 and continue into the heart of craft beer in BEER ATTRACTION in halls C3 and C4 to conclude its brewing and food experience in halls C5 and A5.
The big craft beer events will also be returning, starting from the 14th edition of Birra dell’anno, organized by Unionbirrai, a consolidated partner of BEER ATTRACTION. The best beers combined with great Italian cuisine will be the stars of the FoodAttraction Lab organized by Castalimenti in hall A5.
Internationality will be a significant feature at BEER ATTRACTION, confirmed by a Lounge Area being set aside exclusively for foreign buyers and particularly close attention will be paid to the German, French and Spanish markets.
The modernity of Italgrob’s International Ho.Re.Ca Meeting will also be directed towards opening up more widely to foreign markets. The meeting will bring to Rimini Expo Centre over 1,400 participants from distribution companies ( (850 company owners and collaborators), 320 sellers and 300 goods and service managers for the eating-out market. IHM is, in fact, a one-of-a-kind event, able to attract and unite players from the top league of Ho.Re.Ca.
Collaboration between IHM and BA, while still guaranteeing their respective formats and identities, will offer the market an extremely vast and integral showcase and unique opportunities for Ho.Re.Ca. operators with a parterre of companies, protagonists and specialized content, all in the name of completeness and excellence.
To complete the picture is BBTECH EXPO, the trade show dedicated to technologies, equipment and accessories for the production and packaging of beers and beverages. A show where machinery and system producers can develop business opportunities, not only with beer and beverage companies, but also with professional visitors.
Drink Cup is an Italian leading company in the bottling of water in PET bottles, representing one of the most innovative and dynamic companies in the industry, thanks to its patents. Among the many innovations that Drink Cup has introduced lately, one exemplifies the advantages that the company constantly look for not only for its customers, but also for the environment. This is the brand new SQUARE WATER BOTTLE that allows 30% extra storage and transportation of bottles for the same size. This means a reduction in the storage space for customers and a reduction in pollution to deliver the same amount of water.
The owner of the company, Marco Antonio Ferrero, explains that his factory is located in the fascinating Furlo Pass in the province of Pesaro and Urbino. The factory bottles the water that springs from the heart of Furlo Pass Natural Reserve. The environmental awareness is also testified by the recent 400 megawatt photovoltaic system that has been installed on the roof of the production factory, which guarantees self-power generation for the factory, allowing the plant to be self-sufficient: each bottle is thus produced using solar energy. Moreover, in the factory the lighting is generated by low-impact
LED lights or energy-efficient fluorescent neon lights, and the heating is obtained by recovering the heat produced during the production processes.
Before the bottling phase, during the cleaning and sanitising process of PET containers, Drink Cup has banned the use of detergents and polluting chemical agents, employing only self-produced ozone. Similarly, the objective of ‘zero environmental impact’ is pursued through the use of PET, an easily recyclable plastic material. The company collects from their customers the empty bottles which are then shredded and reused to produce new non-food containers or synthetic fibers for the clothing or the automotive industry.
The factory has a production capacity of over 4,000,000 bottles per year, with production lines and a high-tech warehouse featuring:
- 6.000 sqm indoor;
- storage capacity of over 300,000 bottles;
- more than 2.000.000 sqm of area of appurtenance ensuring production quality;
- an internal lab accredited by ACCREDIA, the National Accreditation Body, where two expert biologists constantly analyse the water so that all production lots are monitored in real time, continuously updating a complex system of HACCP and ISO 9000:2008 for the management of the entire production cycle.
And there’s more in terms of innovation. Drink Cup has also designed and licensed an innovative system for the construction of wells for drinking water, which was developed by a startup called Water Wells. This startup was created to promote the commercial development of a simple and clever idea that revolutionizes the way in which wells for drinking water are designed and built, with the following advantages over traditional technologies:
- energy consumption is reduced by 10% – 60%, thanks to the decrease in pressure drop;;
- installation time and costs are reduced as well as ordinary and extraordinary maintenance, thanks to the chain installation;
- no need for sanitizing treatments since the proliferation of bacteria is prevented inside the well;
- the wells are safe from aquifer pollution or attempts to sabotage (since they are isolated from the external environment and under pressure);
- this technology can be used both on new wells and on wells already in use;
- without feed pipe.
In order to upgrade its production line according to the growing production, such an innovation-oriented company could only work with an innovative supplier.
Drink Cup partnered with Atlas Copco Italia, a company that has made innovation one of its core values, and chose their high pressure compressor P 180-50. Introducing this new compressor has helped to reduce the plant energy consumption from 0.6 kWh/bottle to 0.4 kWh/bottle. In the production of PET bottles, the total absence of oil or polluting substances in the pressurized air is essential. Atlas Copco P compressors not only provide high quality air, they also offer a high level of energy efficiency and productivity, helping to reduce unit costs.
Starting immediately, visitors can register for upkovka 2019 free of cost under www.upakovka-tradefair.com. The most important Russian trade fair of the packaging industry and the related processing industry takes place at the AO Expocentre Krasnaja Presnja exhibition centre in Moscow from 29 January to 1 February, 2019.
After a positive trend with a corresponding increase in visitors to last year’s fair was already noted at the beginning of this year, early signs for 2019 are promising once more: After cautious consumption during the years of recession, Russian consumers are now increasingly reaching for high-quality packaged foods again. The sale of soft drinks is also rising. At the same time, Russia is resolutely continuing its policy of import substitution. Thanks to state support and subsidies, the percentage of locally produced products has increased. For the further processing of these products, Russian and international companies are unabatedly investing in the development and expansion of their local production capacities, boosting the demand for packaging, processing and bottling/ filling technology in the process.
Wide range from technology to packaging
The upakovka trade fair exhibits promising products and solutions from the entire value chain for the target groups of food, beverages, confectionery products and baked goods, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, 2 non-food consumer goods and industrial goods with a focus on processing and packaging technology, whereby the packaging part of the upcoming event is once again considerably expanding in scope. The increased alignment towards the pharmaceutical sector due to the partnership with the Association of Pharmaceutical Packaging Manufacturers (APFU) is also new in 2019. APFU represents the interests of leading Russian manufacturers of pharmaceutical packaging. At upakovka, pharmaceutical companies not only find solutions for solid products, but also for liquid medications. In addition to beverage bottling technology, filling technology for cosmetics and chemicals is part of the offerings of exhibitors such as KHS, Krones, Sidel and SMI. Companies that are taking part within the scope of the official German delegation also include global players such as Fawema, KBA, Theegarten-Pactec, Sollich and Thyssenkrupp Rasselstein. Added to this group are individual exhibitors such as Rovema, AUER Packaging, OMAG Srl, SIPA, CFT Group and OMAS Tecnosistemi. Various companies of the “Processing & Packaging – The High Tech Italian Way” network and members of the Italian mechanical engineering association UCIMA will also be represented at upakovka 2019. The Russian exhibitors include Danaflex-Nano, Zolotoy Shar Group, Russkaya Trapeza and Robotek Production Company.
“Innovationparc” special topic considerably expanded
Since upakovka has been organised under the aegis of the interpack alliance, the “innovationparc” special topic adapted by interpack in Düsseldorf will play an important role in Moscow. After the lively interest of the last two years, the forum programme of innovationparc will take placein parallel on two stages at upakovka 2019. In this way, visitors can obtain even more information on the trending topics of the industry throughout the duration of the trade fair. Focuses will include “Digital Innovation for Packaging & Labelling,” “Packaging Design,” “Recycling and Packaging Waste” and, for the first time, “Pharmaceutical Packaging and Labelling.” The latter is of particular interest to affected companies 3 due to new legal regulations. In addition, a block will once again be provided on the topic of SAVE FOOD in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). The partners of innovationparc are the National Packaging Confederation (NCPack), the Verband Deutscher Maschinen und Anlagenbau (VDMA), the Global Association for Marketing at Retail (POPAI), the Russian Branding Companies Association (RBCA) and the Russian trade journal Tara i Upakovka.
In total, about 850 companies will have exhibits at upakovka and the parallel trade fair interplastica – International Trade Fair Plastics and Rubber. upakovka will once again take place in the Forum hall, one of the largest on the trade fair grounds.
The 16th edition of DJAZAGRO, the Trade Fair for Agri-Food production, lowered its curtain on 12 April 2018. Over the space of four days, the exhibition welcomed 740 exhibiting companies from 34 countries and recorded 20,500 entries, including 8% from outside Algeria. Once again, the show was a crossroads for exchange and meetings between the suppliers of machines, equipment and solutions on the one hand and Algerian manufacturers and investors on the other.
An Algerian exhibitor contingent up by 10%
The number of Algerian firms exhibiting at the show rose by 10% this year, confirming the event’s crucial role in supporting and developing Algerian production. Visitor numbers also increased by 2%. All of our exhibitors emphasised the quality of these visitors, with strong representation from all profiles from bakery and pastry professionals to manufacturers of machines, equipment and food products, importers, exporters and distributors of these products. This increased attendance also reflects the wealth, diversity and quality of the exhibition’s offering, across all sectors of the food industry.
An exhibition supported by many institutional bodies
On Monday 9 April 2017, DJAZAGRO was officially inaugurated by Mr. Abdelkader BOUAZGHI, Ministry of Agriculture, Rural Development and Fisheries and by Mr. Djellab SAID, Minister of Trade. This inauguration was followed by an official tour of the show by the two ministers.
With more than 500 foreign exhibitors from 34 different countries, DJAZAGRO is a truly international event. Accordingly, Tuesday 10 April saw a visit from Mr. Xavier Driencourt, the French Ambassador in Algeria, who came to meet his country’s exhibitors. Similar visits were made by the Dutch and Tunisian ambassadors. The CEIMI (Mitidja Entrepreneurs and Manufacturers Club), which had signed a partnership agreement with Adepta at DJAZAGRO 2017, returned to visit the show in 2018 with the objective of setting up new partnerships between French and Algerian firms.
A trade show designed for exchange, networking and knowledge transfer
For the second time at DJAZAGRO, the Algerian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CACI) organised six workshops for exhibitors and visitors dedicated to investment and export in Algeria.
Their aim was to offer tangible solutions and answer the questions of manufacturers and investors, to encourage them to study the perspectives for productive investment in the agri-food sector. Chaired by speakers from CACI and other bodies such as ANDI and the Algerian Customs, these workshops once again attracted more than 150 attendees from among visitors and exhibitors alike. The Bakery of the Future area, an actual operational industrial bakery, set up using the equipment of French exhibitors, was run by a French baker on every day of the show. The exhibition audience drew inspiration from the demonstration of know-how and the production of recipes using local ingredients.
The Algerian-French Chamber of Commerce and Industry also took advantage of the show to organise a networking reception for French visitors and exhibitors to discuss investment options in order to approach the Algerian market with the benefit of the best experience sharing. This networking event, focussing clearly on the future and highly appreciated by all attendees, brought together more than 80 people.
