IMOLA, Italy -- The seventh edition of Cefla Live, which took place at Cefla Finishing headquarters in Imola, drew 1,200 registered visitors from around the world, representing about 300 companies in the finishing and surface enhancement sector, from wood and plastics, through glass, fiber cement and metallic surfaces.
Cefla Live is organized each year by Cefla Finishing in its large laboratory. Professionals from this business sector saw advanced technologies and witnessed the results obtained through their implementation, including a preview of as yet unreleased products.
The event follows a format in which partner companies (inks, paints, spraying equipment, components and software) are invited. They have an area to exhibit and establish a relationship with customers. The three days turned out to be an opportunity to network. The presence of Cefla Plant Solutions showed case studies with regard to energy production and recovery.
Also present was the new company belonging to Cefla, C-LED, which showed technology for industrial plants and lighting components for furniture. Jet-Set also participated in Cefla Live following its recent acquisition by Cefla Finishing.
“This year’s event has lived up to our expectations, in line with previous editions,” said Alberto Maestri, Cefla Finishing’s managing director. “Cefla Live is true-to-life laboratory where we openly share our solutions with our customers and the companies working in collaboration with us. It therefore represents a vital opportunity to put the finishing touches to our innovations, which we will subsequently launch on the market during the coming tradeshows.”
Cefla Live took place in the large R&D laboratory belonging to Cefla Finishing, to which a temporary hospitality pavilion was added. About 3,000 square feet of technology and information included Smartclean 4.0, the new development in panel brushing; Flow Coating presenting the new system for window impregnation; iGiottoApp X2: the latest generation version of the iGiotto App anthropomorphic coating robot with six axes; cTracker: the new software suite to support companies.
