Laborama 2019

Following on from the successful participation in the trade fair for laboratory technology in 2018, our dedicated partner Macben will once again be exhibiting at the Laborama fair in Brussels this year. Among other things, the TCA 300 basic thermal conductivity measuring device for determining the thermal conductivity of insulating materials and building materials as well as the oxygen index analyzer LOI for determining the burning behavior of plastics through the oxygen index at ambient temperature can be marvelled as representing the entire product portfolio of TAURUS Instruments AG. Our test systems are used in laboratories of materials testing and research institutes or also directly by manufacturers as part of research to increase energy efficiency and regarding preventive fire testing.

Are you also a manufacturer and would like to check your materials in the future in your own laboratory or would you like to bring the technology in your testing facility up to date? Contact us, we will advise you.

Macben will be supported at the Laborama Expo 2019 by specialist staff from TAURUS Instruments AG on site. We look forward to meeting you from 14.-15. March 2019 at the Macben booth.

Lambda, U-value and DIN EN 13501-1 – What is it? Youth development at TAURUS

October 2018

As part of a 2-week student internship from 17th to 28th of September, an ambitious ninth grader had the chance to take a look behind the scenes at TAURUS Instruments AG. He was not only theoretically involved in the development and manufacture of Thermal Conductivity Measuring Devices, Fire Testing Systems and Hotbox Test Chambers, but was also able to provide practical assistance in our production hall and actively support our team.
He was particularly fascinated by the extensive activity of our technical purchasing, whose structured and well-organized work makes a decisive contribution to how our projects succeed. However, in the production our trainee also learned that drilling is not just about drilling and that it also poses a complex process due to the pre- and post-work to be done. He said he felt comfortable with every task assigned to him, as he received helpful advice and tips from each and every employee.
In addition, our trainee praised the family atmosphere at TAURUS and we are very proud of this. We wish him all the very best for the future and success in his further career.

One year, four trade fairs, four countries

June 2018
IEX Köln 2018

The LABORAMA Expo in Brussels – a trade fair for laboratory personnel, analytical equipment and accessories, laboratory equipment and software – was a successful start on 15th and 16th of March 2018. With the support of our specialist staff on site, our partner Macben from Belgium was able to acquire promising contacts.

The subsequent TURKEYBUILT fair in Istanbul, where TAURUS Instruments AG was represented from 8th to 12th of May 2018 by our strong partner IMASAN from Turkey, was also a great success. As the biggest construction fair in the region for the Balkan, Russian and CIS States, the Middle East and North Africa, the IMASAN staff and our experts had the opportunity to make many interesting new customer contacts, which will now be further supported and expanded by IMASAN and TAURUS in cooperation. Especially in the field of fire testing, Turkey offers an attractive market for future business relationships.

From 16th to 17th of May 2018, TARUS Instruments AG exhibited at the IEX – Insulation Expo Europe itself. The leading trade fair for industrial insulation and insulation technology is of particular interest to TAURUS with regard to the field of thermal conductivity measurement, but at the same time the area of fire testing is becoming increasingly important in this sector. Despite a manageable number of visitors, our specialist staff succeeded in laying the foundation for one or the other promising project at IEX as well as deepening existing business relationships and cooperation.

Afterwards one of the most important trade fairs of the plastics and rubber industry took place in Milan from May 29th to June 1st. Represented by our distributor DGTS from Italy as well as by our specialized staff, the PLAST formed a successful conclusion of our trade fair marathon this year. Since TAURUS manufactures special devices for the determination of the burning behavior and the risk to fire of plastics in the field of fire testing, the interest of visitors at the trade fair was primarily to our LOI – the Oxygen Index Analyzer. In this context, our extremely ambitious partner DGTS was able to make some new contacts for potential customers.

Finally, we would like to thank our partners, who have successfully and committedly represented our company at three of these fairs, and we look forward to such good, long-term cooperation.
