DECITEX intelligent textiles to supply NHS Supply Chain in UK

Aurore Bernard - 22-avr.-2014 18:29:34
DECITEX of France, which specializes in the development of intelligent and innovative textiles for use in professional cleaning, has announced a new contract with NHS Supply Chain. Following numerous introductions and tests in some of the largest NHS hospitals across Britain, it was DECITEX’s precise knowledge of this market that helped the company to secure the contract for the UK’s National Health Service (NHS).   DECITEX, a French-based manufacturer at the heart of innovation for microfibre cleaning textiles, has announced a new contract with NHS Supply Chain, following a call to tender for cleaning products for floors and surfaces, to have its products available for purchase by the NHS in England and Wales.   A total of 26 DECITEX products will be listed by NHS Supply Chain, including single- as well as short-and-long-term usage solutions adapted to hazardous areas, such as operating theatres and isolation rooms.   DECITEX’s textiles have proven efficiency and its single- and short-usage cloths have been approved in accordance with the EN13697 standard. These products allow all hospitals, including state-of-the-art ones, to choose to clean floors with water, whilst ensuring the demands of ATP tests are met. Created in 2000, DECITEX is part of the 3E sustainable-energy concept. The company’s main aim is to improve the quality of cleaning and ergonomics whilst considering the associated constraints and working on the reduction in usage costs of the products.   DECITEX’s textile engineers are encouraged to think about the efficiency of the textile for cleaning purposes before considering the addition of a chemical component. The material has also been developed to improve user comfort, not just in terms of autonomy and hygiene, but also in terms of design — a notion often overlooked in this field.      From their design and manufacture in France up to their final use in situ, DECITEX products offer unique and innovative sustainable-development solutions in the field of cleaning textiles. In effect, using DECITEX products makes it possible to save considerable amounts of water, chemicals and energy used in laundry. The specialist company also offers to recycle its products at the end of their use.   DECITEX products are sold in countries around the world including Australia, Canada, France, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the UK. DECITEX products, so as to better meet the needs of today’s users, are manufactured up to the highest standards. Over six million units of DECITEX products are sold each year to the pharmaceutical and aerospace industries, as well to numerous operating theatres within hospitals, in many countries.   About DECITEX DECITEX is a French-based company specializing in microfibre wiping textile for professional use. The company was founded in July 2000 by Guillaume Leymonerie, CEO of the 3E Concept Group.   As a manufacturer, DECITEX’s role is to design and produce high-performance textiles — i.e. mops and wipes made from microfibre — that are easy to use. DECITEX listens to what its customers have to say and innovates as per their needs.   The company complements its textile-technology expertise (focused on issues such as cleaning time, ease of use, cost per use, and impact on the environment) with a lightweight, ergonomically designed range of handles and frames.   For further information, please go to:   http://www.decitex.com/index.php   For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3928 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 kate.riley@ubifrance.fr View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Immersion to unveil Meetiiim solution at CeBIT 2014

Aurore Bernard - 04-mars-2014 11:21:43
Immersion, a market leader in Europe and a major international player in the field of innovative, immersive and collaborative 3D technologies for industry and research, has unveiled Meetiiim, an advanced multi-touch and interactive conference table. The company will be presenting Meetiiim at CeBIT, the world’s leading IT trade show, which will be held in Hannover (Germany) from 10 to 14 March 2014.   Christophe Chartier, CEO of Immersion, says: “Meetiiim takes interactive collaboration one step further. We are sure that this genuine technological masterpiece will revolutionize the codes and practices of business meetings and improve decision-making processes. Our aim is to build on the widely accepted technological developments that have now become commonplace, such as touch technology, in order to promote interactivity, optimize communication, and identify and capitalize on important information.”   Meetiiim is the product of five years of industrial collaboration and research and epitomizes Immersion’s expertise, innovation and know-how. The company will be presenting its cutting-edge technological tool at the CeBIT trade show (Hall 6, Stand L.15), which will take place in Hannover (Northern Germany) from 10 to 14 March of this year.   With Meetiiim, Immersion explores the difficulties generated by passive meetings – where one or more individuals speak to a listening audience – which are quite often unproductive. Immersion’s concept is suited to the industrial sector (aerospace, automotive, etc.) as well as to other areas of activity, such as construction and public works, architectural or design firms, training centres, etc.   Christophe Chartier, CEO, adds: “This collaborative technology not only helps to develop interactivity during meetings, it also improves group decision-making and, therefore, reduces the product-design time.”   Meetiiim’s elegant design and interface help to enhance projects through dynamic presentations. At each stage of a project, multi-disciplinary teams gather around the Meetiiim table in order to accelerate developments, reduce errors, and improve strategic decision-making.   Once the user is connected to Meetiiim via Wi-Fi, the range of possibilities is virtually endless, with the added advantage of saving considerable time.   Access to the Cloud is one of the many features of the solution developed by Immersion: this enables the user to share inter-disciplinary data in real time (3D models, videos, PDF files, images, screen shots, etc.) by simply dragging and dropping. The user can also control remotely various connected devices, as well as send memos directly to Meetiiim, and even use the clipboard tool in order to capture work in progress on Meetiiim.   In addition, the CLONE feature allows the person leading the meeting to generate a copy of his (or her) document and to send it to each attendee. In this way, all participants are able to see any alterations made to the document and visualize its processing, thanks to the annotations and Post-it tools integrated into Meetiiim’s features. Accordingly, participants can follow updates to the project at a glance.   Once the consultation-and-revision stage is over, Meetiiim’s handler feature can be used to keep track of the project. It is then possible to recover the data at the end of the meeting thanks to the automatic backup, which means that the participants do not have to wait to receive the final report.   About Immersion   Immersion, which is headquartered in Bordeaux (South-Western France), is a European leader in the field of innovative, immersive and collaborative 3D technologies for industry and research. The company was founded in 1994 by CEO Christophe Chartier and also has offices in Paris and in Nantes (Western France). Immersion will be showcasing its new Meetiiim solution at CeBIT, the world’s leading IT trade show, which will be held in Hannover (Germany) from 10 to 14 March 2014. The company will be in Hall 6, on Stand L.15.   For further information about the trade show, please go to: www.cebit.com   For further information about Meetiiim, please go to: www.meetiiim.com   For further information about Immersion, please go to: www.immersion.fr    For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3921   Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer   UBIFRANCE Press Office in London   Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640   kate.riley@ubifrance.fr    View other press releases at :   http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/

Joanna Routaboul - 29-janv.-2013 18:30:02
PLASTIFORM has a range of environmentally friendly solutions that use polymer compounds to carry out non-destructive testing (NDT), surface protection and fixing in place, which can be carried out on most objects. The polymerization process used by the specialist company also allows these actions to take place in underwater projects. PLASTIFORM is a world leader in dimensional print moulding for NDT, and its solutions are readily available in the UK through the company’s Leicester office.   Specialising in polymer compounds that have unique technical features, PLASTIFORM produces environmentally friendly products that are clean and safe for the user. The materials that PLASTIFORM uses are made up of two components that solidify upon contact. This polymerization, which lasts for approximately six minutes, does not lead to any loss of mass and results in a minimal loss of volume.   This unique feature allows the material made with PLASTIFORM technology to imitate all details of a surface, including its dimensions, form and texture, to a precision better than 1µm. PLASTIFORM’s products create perfect 3D replicas for various uses, including metrology control. The company’s technology has applications across all areas of activity, from aerospace and the automotive industry to cosmetics and the medical sector.   As the polymerization is anaerobic, the PLASTIFORM material can be used to take imprints under water and can, therefore, be used for testing on offshore platforms, on hydraulic dams, or in nuclear plants.   The PLASTIFORM material can be applied on every kind of surface, including metals, alloys, PVC, wood and plaster panels. The product does not stick to the surfaces it is applied to, other than silicon-based materials.   The material also features shape-retention memory. When solid, the PLASTIFORM shape will return to its form, even if temporarily distorted. This enables the imitation of very complex geometrical forms, as the replica can be misshaped during its retrieval from the model, and it will nevertheless invariably return to its original shape.   PLASTIFORM products have various applications, including dimensional control. The user can create casts of both the internal and external features of an object, which makes it possible to measure hard-to-access components (such as a thread root or a bearing distance) without affecting the object.   The company’s products can also be used for roughness control — also known as surface profile Ra — that is up to 0.4 µm faithful to the original. The roughness of a surface can then be measured directly on some casts using a surface meter, or by comparison with a standard.   Similarly, a number of PLASTIFORM compounds enable the user to create a replica, allowing for the measurement of a surface’s finish, including flatness and curvatures, or even fractures, striations and mechanical damages.   Additionally, the PLASTIFORM range facilitates the production of exact duplicates. A silicone-based compound is used to produce the negative mould of a part, which is used to create a resin-based positive mould. More particularly, this method is used to generate checking gauges.   Furthermore, PLASTIFORM products can be used to protect certain areas of a part during surface treatment, including sandblasting, painting and chemical treatment. PLASTIFORM’s custom-made seals are resistant to chemicals, water and oil.   Finally, positioning and clamping a part are two basic operations in most manufacturing industries. PLASTIFORM products enable these to be achieved easily and efficiently, by providing new solutions that fix, clamp and add strength to parts: this is achieved through the use of infinitely re-usable Re-Form crystals.   About PLASTIFORM   PLASTIFORM is manufactured by RIVELEC, a family-owned company specialising in industrial supplies. PLASTIFORM is a world leader in dimensional print moulding for non-destructive testing (NDT).   The company is headquartered in Aubergenville, near Paris (France). RIVELEC has a representative in the UK, who is based  in Leicester (in England).   For further information, please go to: http://www.plastiform.info/en/                                               For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3805 Ms Katherine WOODS - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 katherine.woods@ubifrance.fr   View other press releases at : http://www.ubifrance.com/uk/
