Canadian technology and know-how will be showcased at the Canadian Pavilion during the upcoming K Show, Oct. 24 to 31 in Dusseldorf, Germany. Organized by the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, the pavilion will feature the exhibits of 19 companies and organizations, as well as a 60-foot representation of the Canadarm2, the homegrown technology used on Space Shuttle missions to manipulate payloads in space. The Canadarm2 fits the theme of this year’s K show: Plastics in Outer SpaceSolutions for Earth.
Among the Canadian companies exhibiting at the show, two, Acrolab (Windsor, ON) and Weber Manufacturing (Midland, ON), have particular relevance to the space theme. Acrolab technology was used in a NASA space shuttle experiment to produce a spectrometric examination of the space craft’s surfaces to evaluate craft glow during re-entry into the atmosphere. Weber Manufacturing has designed and produced autoclave tools for airplanes and helicopters; as well has built master models for many large fuselage components for several aerospace programs.
More information on all of the companies participating at the pavilion can be obtained by contacting Sally Damstra, CPIA director international trade & shows, at 905-678-7415, ext. 280.
"We think we’ve really put together one of our best pavilions at this year’s K," says Damstra. "We’re looking forward to a good response at the show."
