Rehm Hungary is investing strongly in the future and is now offering processing and maintenance services for used machines

Rehm Hungary has begun to offer processing and maintenance services for used machines in the Hungarian, Romanian and Bulgarian markets. This allows Rehm Hungary to be even better equipped to meet the challenging needs of its customers: „We want to offer our customers optimised advice on our product portfolio at all times,“ says Josef Virsinger, Managing Director at Rehm Hungary.

These additional services mean more space is required. So the company site was expanded through the addition of 700 further square metres for a production hall, offering even more space for individual services. Used machines, mainly V8 reflow soldering units, are worked on here on the production floor and returned to a near-new condition. „Major clients in the automotive industry are keen to use our services and can rely on the immediate presence of a consistent and qualified point of contact at all times,“ according to Josef Virsinger.

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Experience suggests planning for business succession early on

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Experience suggests planning for business succession early on

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte - Experience suggests planning for business succession early on

Business succession is an issue that preys on the minds of many small and medium-sized enterprises and family-run businesses. Yet finding a suitable successor can prove challenging.

In the coming years, business succession will be on the agenda of a lot of small and medium-sized companies and family-owned businesses. While searching for a suitable successor to manage the company at the highest level is of utmost importance for the survival of the business, our experience at the commercial law firm GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte suggests there is a tendency to kick the matter into the long grass. There are several reasons for this: One the one hand, the uncertainty resulting from tax reforms is increasingly playing a role, and on the other hand, emotional reasons can make it difficult for those in charge of companies to entrust others with the fate of their business.

Demographic trends are also making it harder to find a suitable successor. More and more bosses are set to retire. At the same time, there are fewer and fewer young people available to take up the reigns. It is therefore all the more important to make plans for business succession and implement these in good time.

In the case of family-run businesses, the expectation is often for the baton to be passed on to the next generation. In doing so, it is important to consider the implications both from a tax perspective as well as with respect to succession law. One also needs to address the issue of whether, for instance, one“s own children are even interested in continuing the business, or whether they have the necessary qualifications.

Another option is to sell the business. Preparations ought to be made well in advance of the sale. In addition to searching for a potential buyer, priority should also be given to valuating the business in order to determine an appropriate selling price. It is equally important to account for existing employment contracts and inheritance claims. Depending on its corporate form, the business could also potentially be sold to a fellow partner or shareholder.

Business succession is a complex subject in relation to which a number of legal aspects need to be considered. Long-term and forward-looking planning is therefore essential. Lawyers who are experienced in the field of company law can offer advice when searching for a suitable successor and ensure a smooth transition.

Spot-Premiere: Jochen Schweizer launcht mitreißende Kampagne

Raus aus der Routine – Jochen Schweizer startet am Sonntag mit einem neuen TV-Konzept, um die Marke zu repositionieren

Spot-Premiere: Jochen Schweizer launcht mitreißende Kampagne

Die ultimative Wildwasseraction: Eine Rafting Tour von Jochen Schweizer

München, 16. September 2018. Am heutigen Sonntag launcht die neue Kampagne des ErlebnisSpezialisten Jochen Schweizer. Ziel ist es, die Marke in ihrem Kern zu bestätigen aber gleichermaßen deutlich zu erweitern, um neue Zielgruppen erschließen zu können.

„Jochen Schweizer steht schon lange für das Erlebnis an sich und ist in den Köpfen der Konsumenten klar verankert. Jedoch ist es Aufgabe der Marke, sich kontinuierlich neu zu erfinden und weiterzuentwickeln“, so Katja Leßmeister, CMO bei Jochen Schweizer.

In umfassenden Relevanz- und Brandanalysen (in Zusammenarbeit mit pilot Hamburg) zeigte sich, dass die Marke noch unerschlossenes Potential hat, das es nun auszuschöpfen gilt. Mit Hilfe des neuen TV Konzepts sollen bewusst neue Assoziationen gesetzt und Impulse gegeben werden, um die Marke in der Wahrnehmung zu erweitern und so auch neuen Zielgruppen zugänglich zu machen.

Das neue Spotkonzept greift ein gesellschaftsrelevantes Thema auf: Obwohl die Deutschen laut Studien eine Erlebnisgesellschaft sind, sind sie in der Routine des Alltags gefangen. Die Marke Jochen Schweizer hilft beim Ausbrechen aus dieser Routine und bietet für jedes Kundenbedürfnis das entsprechende Erlebnis. Gewohnheit wird gegen Ungewohntes getauscht, dabei fordert die Marke Jochen Schweizer dazu auf, sich selbst wieder zu spüren. Der Claim „Du bist, was du erlebst“ kann somit erweitert aufgeladen werden.

Die TV-Spots, die mit der Produktion Beech, Rosenheim, realisiert wurden, zeigen Protagonisten in ihrem Alltag, die vom Partner oder von Freunden angespornt werden, Neues zu entdecken. Mit Hilfe der Match Cut Technik wird der Protagonist aus dem Alltag in das Erlebnis gesaugt. Dabei arbeitet der Match Cut immer über ein „Utensil“, das man direkt auch im Erlebnis benötigt. Mit einer eindrucksvollen Bildwelt und ausdrucksstarken Soundeffekten wird das Erleben für Zuschauer spürbar gemacht.

„Über diese filmische Besonderheit können wir die Marke erlebbarer machen und genau zeigen, wie einfach das Ausbrechen eigentlich ist. Die spürbare Inszenierung schafft Relevanz und Begehrlichkeit. Genau das, was die Marke jetzt benötigt“, bestätigt Katja Leßmeister.

Inhaltlich wird der Zuschauer in zwei Erlebniswelten entführt: Man erlebt die mitreißende Wirkung einer Erlebnisreise nach Amsterdam und Wildwasseraction beim Rafting.

Die ersten beiden Spots werden bis Ende des Jahres auf den Sendern der ProsiebenSat.1-Gruppe in Deutschland und Österreich ausgestrahlt und mit einer 360°-Kampagne auf allen Online- und Social Media-Kanälen begleitet. Ergänzt werden diese beiden Motive dann im November mit Ice-Drift Training und Schneemobil fahren. Alle Motive werden in den Spotlängen 30 Sekunden, 20 Sekunden und 10 Sekunden gezeigt.

Über die Jochen Schweizer GmbH

Die Jochen Schweizer GmbH, gegründet 1987 von Jochen Schweizer selbst, hat es sich zur Aufgabe gemacht, mit ihren Erlebnissen ein echter Wegbegleiter für die Menschen zu sein, der immer da ist, wenn sich das Leben in der Routine verliert. Dafür vermittelt das Unternehmen tausende unterschiedliche Erlebnisse, Erlebnisreisen und Erlebnisgeschenke in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz für jeden Geschmack, jeden Anlass und jedes Alter. Erhältlich sind sämtliche Erlebnisangebote online auf www.jochen-schweizer.com, in 45 eigenen Jochen Schweizer Shops sowie im Einzelhandel. Im Oktober 2017 wurden Jochen Schweizer und mydays, die beiden führenden Brands auf diesem Markt, unter dem Dach der JSMD Group vereint. Die Gruppe, zu der auch die Tochterunternehmen Jochen Schweizer Technology Solutions GmbH, Spontacts GmbH und Hip Trips GmbH zählen, ist seitdem Mitglied der ProSiebenSat.1 Media SE. Du bist, was du erlebst – um diesen Leitsatz mit Leben zu füllen, geben 250 Mitarbeiter am Unternehmenssitz München jeden Tag alles.

ATN“s self-propelled aerial platforms become part of the Fassi Group

FASSI GRU AT IAA 2018

ATN"s self-propelled aerial platforms become part of the Fassi Group

The Fassi Group, through its French holding company that already owns Fassi France and Marrel, has acquired control of ATN, a leading manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms on rubber or tracks with electric or diesel engines.

ATN, the French manufacturer of self-propelled aerial platforms, has developed a range of products designed primarily to meet the needs of rental companies, a market that is particularly prosperous in France. The quality and robustness of the manufacturing materials guarantee the machines a long life cycle, even when exposed to harsh operating conditions. In terms of design, the products continue to improve and constantly increase in range, without compromising their ability to facilitate and simplify maintenance operations, maximising the profitability of its customers.

ATN was founded in 2000 in Tonneins, in the South-West of France between Bordeaux and Toulouse and today its production and administrative plant is located a few kilometres away in the town of Fauillet in a factory of 20,000 square metres (covering six hectares of land), which opened in 2013. The initial idea was to develop aerial platforms with a vertical column installed on a track called PIAF. The founders could boast of long previous experience, having been the creators of this solution. Since the beginning, the company’s mission has been to design and manufacture machines for rental companies, developing a complete range of different heights (now up to 9.92 m with a load capacity of 200 kg), on wheels or on tracks, first with electric motors and then also with diesel engines. More recently, the selection of products has increased with the addition of models with articulated arms and pantographs with heights up to 22.85 metres and capacities up to 230 kg.

With the acquisition of ATN, the Fassi Group continues its expansion into all areas of lifting, particularly in the segment of stand-alone machines, i.e. not installed on a truck. In this regard, ATN will become the natural partner of the Italian brand Jekko, already associated with the Fassi Group, to produce a complete range of solutions in a market that boasts increasingly important numbers.

The acquisition of ATN was completed at the end of July 2018 by the French holding company CTELM, which is controlled completely by the Fassi Group and chaired by Roger Boutonnet and already holds full control of Fassi France and Marrel.

Fassi Gru ist unter allen italienischen Herstellern der Marktführer. Mit seinem Produktsortiment und der Anzahl verkaufter Krane gehört das Unternehmen zu den weltweit führenden Herstellern von Hydraulikkranen.
Die Produktionskapazität erreicht etwa 12.000 Kräne pro Jahr. Das Produktüprogramm in die gesamte Welt exportiert, von Kanada bis Frankreich, von England bis nach Australien.

MainConcept Enables Canon XF-HEVC Workflows

Industry-leading MainConcept® SDKs allow ingest of HEVC/MXF recordings from Canon“s brand-new XF 705 Camera Model

MainConcept Enables Canon XF-HEVC Workflows

Aachen, Germany – September 14, 2018 – MainConcept, a leading provider of video codec technology, today announced that they have added support for ingesting HEVC 4:2:2 files generated by the brand-new Canon XF 705 camera to their HEVC/H.265 Decoder SDK.
With the XF 705 camera, introduced at today’s IBC in Amsterdam, Canon is first to leverage the higher compression efficiency of HEVC/H.265 to store data more efficiently and allow simultaneous recording of HDR and SDR without doubling storage space requirements. Canon“s decision to package 4:2:2 10-bit HEVC/H.265 into an MXF container allows existing workflows to support the same metadata as with current, AVC/H.264-based broadcast formats.
MainConcept has worked closely with Canon to ensure interoperability and reliable ingest of files recorded by Canon XF-HEVC capable cameras. Editing and Media Asset Management applications can easily ingest or playback the new format natively by integrating MainConcept HEVC/H.265 Decoder SDK version 10 which is being released at IBC 2018. The SDK includes components for video and audio decoding as well as MXF demultiplexing.
„MainConcept has a long history of successful collaboration with professional camera manufacturers ,“ said Thomas Kramer, VP Product Management for MainConcept. „Being the select partner for Canon“s release of their XF camera line is yet another important milestone in enabling native ingest workflows in our customers“ applications. Canon“s appreciation for HEVC/H.265 as a recording and production format underlines the importance of this most efficient codec in the professional production space.“
„We are proud to work with MainConcept as our software partner,“ said Edakubo Hiroo, Deputy Chief Executive at Canon“s Image Solutions Business Operations. „They provide the most reliable codecs and great interoperability that companies require when ingesting recorded content. Many of the broadcast software vendors in the market rely on MainConcept SDKs and can now enable their workflow applications with ingest and playback support when we launch our new camera at IBC.“

The MainConcept HEVC/H.265 SDK and other codec packages are available for immediate testing now. Please fill out our online ENDA to request a free evaluation trial.

MainConcept Announces Multi-Platform ProRes Decoding SDK

Brand new MainConcept® SDK enabling Ingest of ProRes material from MOV and MXF sources

MainConcept Announces Multi-Platform ProRes Decoding SDK

Aachen, Germany – September 14, 2018 – MainConcept, a leading provider of video codec technology, today announced the release of a multi-platform SDK enabling application developers to ingest Apple ProRes video from MOV and MXF containers in any workflow.
Apple ProRes has become one of the most frequently used intermediate formats in media production. The ProRes bitstream syntax was published as SMPTE RDD-36 in 2015. MainConcept is the first company to introduce a professional SDK for licensing, that allows ingest and real-time playback of ProRes content on all major platforms.
While ProRes video is originally stored in QuickTime (MOV) containers, SMPTE recently published RDD-44 which allows ProRes to be carried in MXF, making it perfectly suited for professional production workflows. The MainConcept ProRes Decoder SDK supports ingesting from both container formats for use in transcoding, editing and playback applications. The SDK is available for Windows, macOS and Linux platforms.
„MainConcept is always striving to be on the forefront of new codec standards,“ said Deacon Johnson, SVP Global Sales – Technology Licensing for MainConcept. „We“re very happy to be implementing ProRes decoding in our SDK. MainConcept SDKs provide the perfect framework to add new Codecs, and ProRes was frequently requested by our customers. Now we are able to offer native ingest of ProRes. The fact that ProRes can also be included in MXF underlines the significance of this format in the professional production space.“

Science Research Technology

Innovative mass finishing process increases the efficiency of turbines

Specially selected grinding media improve the airflow characteristics of blades.

Innovative mass finishing process increases the efficiency of turbines

The MV multivibrators are equipped with high-speed imbalance motors.

At the ALUMINIUM 2018 exhibition Walther Trowal presents its new process for the gentle surface finishing of guide vanes used in turbines and compressors. It creates very smooth surface readings and, thus, optimizes the airflow through the guide vanes.

After they have been milled from a cast block of aluminium, guide vanes for turbines or compressors require a very smooth surface to insure optimum airflow around every single blade. To date this required a complex and costly mechanical process.

Walther Trowal has recently developed a method that allows the gentle smoothing of the guide vanes after milling without rounding the leading edges beyond the acceptable tolerances – an important factor for increasing the efficiency of jet engines.

Basis for the new process are the rotary multi vibrators of the model range MV allowing the processing of guide vanes with diameters of up to 800 mm. The company utilizes special, extremely small ceramic grinding media, which provide not only optimum surface coverage on the work pieces but also smoothens the surface at the root of the vanes.

The guide vanes, but also blisks, are mounted to a fixture that is magnetically attached to the base of the processing bowl. This ensures that the overlapping, high-frequency vibrations from the multi vibrator are transferred to the work piece, causing intensive contact between the media and the vane surface areas.

The result of the fully automatic finishing process: The milling lines from the preceding machining step have been ground out creating a very smooth surface. With the new process Walther Trowal reduces the Ra surface readings from 4.0 down to 1.0 µm with only minimal rounding of the leading edges. This innovative mass finishing process creates ideal conditions for an optimum airflow through the guide vanes.

At the ALUMINIUM 2018 Walther Trowal also presents rotary vibrators used for the surface finishing of aluminium castings including the removal of burrs.

Facts about Walther Trowal

For 85 years Walther Trowal has been a pioneer and market leader in various surface treatment technologies. The company offers modular and custom engineered solutions for a wide range of surface treatment problems.

Initially only making vibratory finishing equipment, over the years Walther Trowal has continuously broadened its product range and today offers a wide portfolio of equipment and services for improving all kinds of surfaces, e.g. mass finishing, part cleaning, shot blasting and drying of a wide spectrum of work pieces, last but not least, the coating of mass produced small parts.

Walther Trowal offers not only various types of equipment but complete surface treatment systems: By linking the various equipment modules and automating the complete process, we are able to precisely adapt our process technologies to the technical requirements of our customers. This also includes various types of peripheral equipment and process water cleaning and recycling systems. Of course, we also offer comprehensive pre- and after-sale service like sample processing in one of our demonstration labs and global repair and maintenance service.

Walther Trowal serves many customers in many industries around the world. For example, in the automotive and aerospace industry, medical engineering and wind power generation.

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Assessment of authorized dealers“ right to claim compensation

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte – Assessment of authorized dealers“ right to claim compensation

GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte - Assessment of authorized dealers" right to claim compensation

Not unlike in the case of commercial agents, authorized dealers may also be entitled to claim compensation after their contract has been terminated. That being said, certain conditions need to be fulfilled in order for this to happen.

There are no regulations that specifically address an authorized dealer“s right to claim compensation. However, the provisions pertaining to a commercial agent“s right to claim compensation can sometimes be applied by analogy. We at the commercial law firm GRP Rainer Rechtsanwälte note that to this end it first needs to be assessed whether the relevant requirements have been met.

Commercial agents are entitled to claim compensation after their contract has been terminated if they have established new business contacts for the company that the latter continues to be able to benefit from. Authorized dealers may also be entitled to claim compensation pursuant to these provisions. In a ruling from February 5, 2015, the Bundesgerichtshof (BGH), Germany“s Federal Supreme Court, clearly set out the conditions that need to be met for this to happen (Az.: VII ZR 315/13). The right to claim compensation only arises if the authorized dealer is integrated into the company“s sales force and obligated to make their client data available to the company. In other words, not unlike in the case of commercial agents, the company must be able to make continued use of the business contacts for its own purposes.

In the instant case, the authorized dealer did not have a right to claim compensation because the company had not been entitled to use customers“ data; the company had contractually undertaken upon termination of the contract to block any customer data it had been provided with, not to use said data and to delete it if so requested by the authorized dealer. For this reason, the BGH concluded that the company had not been able to readily exploit the customer data, and the authorized dealer was therefore not entitled to claim compensation.

The Bundesgerichtshof“s ruling raises a number of practical issues. In particular, it needs to be clarified whether the transfer of customer data has to be explicitly regulated in the authorized dealership agreement or whether this obligation can indirectly arise from the contractual provisions. Furthermore, the BGH left open the question of whether it is possible for the obligation to transfer customer data to be regulated in a separate agreement.

The right to claim compensation is a controversial topic in the case of authorized dealers. Lawyers who are experienced in the field of commercial law can advise both business and authorized dealers on drafting agreements as well as in the context of legal disputes.

Price tip: XZENT’s new 2-DIN infotainers X-422 and X-222

„Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the German Car & HiFi magazine (issue 05/2018) about XZENT’s multimedia systems, awarding it the ‚Price tip‘ accolade.

Price tip: XZENT

Price tip: XZENT X-422 and X-222

Launched in early summer, the two 2-DIN DAB+ infotainers X-422 and X-222 from multimedia specialist XZENT have now been thoroughly tested by the German Car & HiFi magazine in issue 05/2018. After an in-depth check out in a major test, both these systems were able to put up an all-round convincing performance. „Superb entertainment package at a sensational price“, is the verdict of the critical tech journalists on these new multimedia systems, awarding them the ‚Price tip‘ accolade to account for the outstanding price/performance.

WITH OR WITHOUT SAT NAV
With the X-422 and X-222 there are two moniceivers on the test bench that are identical as far as features and design are concerned. The only difference is: With its integrated GPS receiver the X-422 can easily be upgraded to become a fully-fledged naviceiver. For 99 euros you get the navigation package for cars with Europe-wide 3D navigation on a microSD card. And for just under 200 euros there is the motorhome variant, which allows vehicle parameters such as vehicle height and weight to be entered as well as providing an additional camping POI database. „Together with the optional navigation software the XZENT X-422 forms a completely equipped infotainment system at a very attractive price“ say the Car & Hifi testers.

SUPERB SMARTPHONE INTEGRATION
But even without the sat nav package comfortable navigation is still possible with either of these XZENT systems – with the aid of a compatible Android smartphone: „This is because the X-222 as well as the X-422 has Easy Connect“, the journalists explain. „With a suitable phone connected to one of the two USB ports at the rear you can mirror smartphone apps on the monitor of the car radio and control them via its touchscreen. This works just as well with the music player or Spotify as with Google Maps or other apps.“

SUPERB ENTERTAINMENT PACKAGE
The journalists are also convinced by the versatile media section of the two XZENT infotainers. Beside an FM tuner to receive classic radio programs, the systems are equipped with a DAB+ tuner that scored with the testers for „comfortable station search, Service Following and MOT Slideshow“.
With two USB ports the moniceivers are well equipped for audio and video playback. Then there is the option for comfortable use of the mobile phone in the vehicle: „The devices also work together brilliantly with smartphones using a Bluetooth wireless connection to telephone and hear music.“ There is an HDMI interface for the connection of multimedia devices or mobile phones with an HDMI output.

COMFORTABLE OPERATION
Car & HiFi particularly praise the ease of use of both systems, that have a large capacitive 6.5″/16.5 cm touchscreen together with a practical rotary volume control and sensor buttons: „The menus are clearly laid out, the touchscreen reacts promptly, and as a result overall control is smooth and intuitive“, according to the well-respected tech journalists.
