Gemtec - The new technology show in Germany
Gemtec 2010 - May 28th to 30th
Gaining technology knowledge at the fair
With the GEMTEC, the organisers from Idar-Oberstein, try a completely
new fair concept for the gem & jewellery branch. This workshop fair
is not only meant to present technology to touch it is also meant to
impart technology knowledge at its best. The use of modern technology
has by now become an essential question for the survival in the
jewellery and gemstone trade. Who wants to stay competitively viable
cannot avoid computer aided design, CNC workstations or laser tools
Many goldsmiths, jewellers and jewellery producers have understood
this indeed and are looking for acceptable application concepts for
innovative technologies. This is no easy venture since the
communication problems between the ones who offer technology and
their potential customers from the jewellery trade are huge and the
fear of contact is quite big.
Therefore, modern technology for the jewellery and gemstone trade
must not be just presented", says Kai-Uwe Hille, managing director of
Intergem Messe GmbH, which will organize the GEMTEC 2010 as well. The
professionals do rather need the chance to give these new
technologies a try and gain technological orientation interactively.
With the exhibiting concept of the GEMTEC, the organiser wants to
meet the specific need for and testing of the operators
of modern jewellery and gemstone technology. For example, there will
be workshop spaces directly at the exhibitors’ booths. Since after
all, to experience a workstation for the turning of rings live, the
trade show visitor needs enough space.
The workshop-like concept is welcomed by the exhibitors, since the
have a better chance to meet the needs and hardships of their
customers. For years, the providers of technologies for prototyping
and the software programmers of computer aided design only poorly
catered for the needs of jewellery producers and goldsmiths.
Respectively high were the barriers for the branch to implement these
new technologies to their processing. This way, Ed Powell, of the
British specialist for computer aided production found out, that
jewellery designers do not like wire frame models. They want to work
with more detailed options of rendering.
So, for the producers of design software the necessity of introducing
the work with their programs step by step emerged. Hands on is the
order of the day", says the expert for computer aided production,
Peter de Cloedt.
This counts for all other technologies in the jewellery trade as
well. If it’s prototyping, moulding technologies, smart workshops or
intelligent offices and shops. The conveyance of the necessary
knowledge can only be successful in the interactive process at the
machines and systems.
