Safety first

Dear readers,

it’s now official: the BIBM Congress in Copenhagen, co-organized by us, was once again postponed as a consequence of COVID-19. To ensure the safety of all exhibitors, delegates and lecturers, the BIBM Congress has now been postponed to 14 – 16 November 2021. The event location, the Tivoli Congress Center, remains unchanged. We had hoped until the last moment that, after the lockdown was eased, we would at long last be able to meet you once again personally. But we are convinced that the health of all players under the current circumstances is far more important.

The developments of the exceptional corona situation are today still difficult to predict for all of us. Nevertheless – or precisely because of it – we must continue to make the best of the situation. We have learned to improvise and to make possible the exchange of knowledge in an alternative way. Therefore, we are pleased, for example, to offer you an especially exciting webinar on 29 September (in German) and on 14 October 2020 (in English): Max Mandt-Merck, Sales Manager at LAP, explains how to achieve significant increases in efficiency in precast element production with laser projection systems.

A great deal of specialist expertise awaits you, of course, in the current BFT International as well. You should, for example, on no account miss reading the technical paper by Prof. Leutbecher (Part 2), the practice test performed by Syspro to determine the roughness of precast panels or the report on the concrete plant Betonwerk Schuster.

Much enjoyment in reading this issue wishes you


Karla Knitter
