Building and interiors exhibition set to display the latest in technology

Jeddah Mayor Hani Abu Ras will inaugurate the silver jubilee edition of Saudi Building & Interiors Exhibition (SBIE) on Monday (April 11) at Jeddah Center for Forums and Events.
The show, organized by Al-Harithy Company for Exhibitions (ACE) ends on April 14.
Saudi Arabia’s rapid progress in the construction and the real estate sector has witnessed the launch of numerous commercial, residential, hospital, school and education facilities projects, thus creating a demand for interior and outdoor design, and decor and furnishings.
SBIE 2016 is set to host 200 national and international pavilions from China, Egypt, Turkey, and individual companies from Europe, Arab World and Asia.
Major Saudi companies representing a large number of locally manufactured products and representing international brands are also taking part.
“As always the objective of SBIE is to display the latest in technology, usage of materials and innovative approaches to interior design, decor and furniture. SBIE serves to meet the growing demand, by bringing together all the leading companies in the industry under one roof,” said Zahoor Siddique, VP of ACE.
At SBIE, architects, engineers, contractors, designers, interior decorators and government officials will have the opportunity to evaluate and source the best products and services.
In its 25th edition, SBIE is showcasing products related to building materials and hardware, climate control, construction equipment and tools, electricity and lighting, environmental conservation, and marble, granite and stone technology, as well as safety, security and fire Prevention, and water technology and waste management.
Interior designs and products related to hotels and leisure, office environment, outdoors and landscape design, schools and hospitals, shopping malls and restaurants, and residential areas are also exhibited.
The show timings are 4-10 pm daily till April 14.

5G improves production of jet engine components

Ericsson and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology have teamed up to explore the industrial applications of 5G. The first use case for production of jet engine components for MTU Aero Engines is being presented this week at the Hanover Fair in Germany.
The components concerned, so-called blade integrated disks (blisk), are high-tech components where the disk and blades are produced as a single piece and serve the purpose of compressing the air inside jet engines.
Thomas Dautl, director of manufacturing technology, MTU Aero Engines, said: “A blade-integrated disk is a high-value component. The milling process takes 15-20 hours and the total lead time is around 3-4 months, including coating processes and quality checks. The new 5G-based production technology will help make our operations more efficient.”
