KITE provides industrial technology solutions for KZN

The KwaZulu-Natal Industrial Technology Exhibition (KITE), to be held at the Durban Exhibition Centre from 18 to 20 July 2023, will provide the KwaZulu-Natal market with access to a wide and comprehensive line-up of industrial technology products and services. 

“As companies move to embrace the benefits of Industry 4.0 (I4.0), finding providers of the technology and services necessary to maximise their adoption of Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) trends becomes a priority,” says Charlene Hefer, portfolio director at Specialised Exhibitions — a division of Montgomery Group. “Fortunately, we have made this process simpler and more efficient by bringing together the designers and providers of solutions focused on assisting organisations to implement changes that will, through automation, improve productivity, increase occupational health and safety, maximise profitability and operational uptime, and create sustainability of operations.” 

Over 60 exhibitors are lining up a diverse range of products and services geared towards optimising productivity and uptime, and assisting with future-proofing businesses for continued sustainability.

Perfect for police enforcement, the SAF’IR Evolution from 360 Degrees Safety (Stand E6a) is the industry’s first handheld infrared breath alcohol tester. Able to withstand harsh conditions, this rugged evidential analyser is a reliable partner for any law enforcement official.

Integrated Air Solutions (Stand C12a) will be showcasing the ELGi LD Series. Ranging from 2.2 to 11 kW, the ELGi LD Series is an innovation in piston air compressor technology that caters to all industries looking for compact air compressors with high performance, low noise, and easy maintenance.

United Scientific’s (Stand F22) X-MET8000 range of handheld x-ray fluorescence analysers delivers the performance needed for rapid alloy grade identification and accurate chemistry of a wide variety of materials (solid and powder metals, ores, minerals, etc). The X-MET handheld XRF analyser (HHXRF) is practical, robust, and easy to use, delivering results you can trust.

Established in 2004, Black Eagle General Engineering (Stand E13) specialises in conventional and CNC milling and turning, as well as light fabrication. The company prides itself on its quality of work, relationships with clients, and ability to take on both smaller (prototype) jobs and mass production type jobs.

Aberlink, meanwhile, has launched Horizon, a new range of computer numerical control (CNC) bridge-type coordinate measuring machines (CMMs). Utilising linear motors, the Horizon breaks new ground in CMM design. With an 800 mm and 1 000 mm travel in the x-axis, the Horizon completes Aberlink’s range of bridge CMMs and will further extend its offering into the high-end CMM marketplace. Attendees will be able to view the Horizon at the Caldeaz Manufacturing Technologies stand (D3) at KITE.

With over 48 years of experience in the protective clothing industry, Charnaud (Stand E8) continues to grow, with the cornerstones of its development being brand consistency and product quality. The Charnaud SURVIVE-ARC range of specialised products protects electrical workers against the life-threatening thermal hazards of an electric arc flash.

Omron Industrial Automation is dedicated to providing unrivalled automation products and customised expert solutions for any industry. Its product portfolio includes factory automation, sensors and safety, mechatronics and drives, industrial components, and vision systems.

“Not only will visitors be exposed to the latest technology and trends in the exhibitor offerings, but they will also be able to increase their industry knowledge base by attending the SAIMechE free-to-attend seminar theatre,” says Hefer.

“Topics are presented by experienced industry professionals and thought leaders, addressing the latest trends and changes to regulations in the industry which could impact on decision making and business plans for automation of facilities,” she continues.

“Similarly, if you are involved in the lifting industry, registration for the Lifting Equipment Engineering Association of South Africa (LEEASA) conference is a priority.”
