Electro-Static Object Flocking Of Decoys Using Multi-Color Without Masking
Decoys are used by hunters to attract game. For this the decoys should appear as real as possible.
Painted decoys reveal themselves by an unnatural sunlight reflection, while flocked decoys absorb sunlight equal to fur.
Since many game, e.g. the white-tailed deer, have very different fur colors, a flocking in several colors is necessary. By flocking without masking, a natural transition of the flock colors can be achieved.

B2B Success Factors E-commerce and on-line marketing – you have to do that
Does it really need the Internet in the marketing of B2B companies? What is the significance of e-commerce and onlinemarketing in B2B sales? What marketing tools are the right ones to address company buyers? And what do you have to do as a B2B company on the Internet today in order to continue to successfully acquire customers?
To answer these questions, the e-commerce expert Thomas Hörner analyzes in his keynote, who nowadays are actually B2B buyers, how they behave and how the B2B purchasing process actually takes place in times of the Internet.
However, the lecture does not stand for pure analysis. On the contrary, these recommendations lead to nine very concrete recommendations on the activities of e-commerce and on-line marketing for B2B companies.
In this way, sound background knowledge on the developments of B2B e-commerce is combined with practical tips on an illuminating and surely leading day for your future business success.

Flocking in the automobile – examples in and out of practice
In order to correctly implement the customer requirements of a flocked component in an automobile, the flock and component requirements must be clearly defined at an early stage in the development phase.
Large error sources are that the flock was described in advance in the drawing, but not in the 3D data dimensionally considered.
Especially in the case of narrow installation space, function-relevant or kinematic components or small gaps in the vehicle, the measurement of flocking must be taken into account early in the installation and / or tolerance tests. This is the only way to avoid expensive adjustments and tool changes.
The presentation describes two current products of the company Dr. Haubitz GmbH & Co.KG how the information flow between the 3 actors automobile manufacturer – system supplier – flocking company is regulated.

“International FTAs: threat or opportunity for the European textile industry?
The presentation will present and develop arguments to defend both threat and opportunities angles. Large benefits that foreign textile companies profit at home which we consider unfair and better market access for EU exports abroad are only a couple of examples of opinions to argue for risks and positive prospects, respectively, of FTAs. The talk will refer to concrete examples not only on i) already FTAs in place such as the EU-Korea FTA one or ii) already finalized FTAs negotiations but not yet implemented FTAS such as the EU-Vietnam FTA but also on iii) ongoing FTAs negotiations, mainly the EU-US TTIP and the EU-MERCOSUR FTA. The presentation will conclude by suggesting what ideally a FTA has to contain to be considered satisfactory from CIRFS’ point of view.

Innovative Coating/Flocking system for discontinuous sheets even if they have different thickness
The application foresees the use of a slot that is dosing an adhesive film without touching the substrate. This dosing technology is not innovative; coating slots are in the market since many years, but it is the combination between the slot technology with a device that is capable to move up and down the slot at a very precise layer with a relative precision positioning system. The coating position can vary in case there are supports divided in sheets with different thicknesses or when, an endless support has irregular thickness. Another important feature: the system is contact less, so that there is no blade, cylinder of other coating device in contact with the substrate. These characteristics open adhesive application in several supports that have critical behaviour then a coating device is touching their surface. There are several occasions in which interesting flocking processes are not leaving the sample phase just because of difficulties for achieving to a feasible (technically and economically) industrialization.
Before going through the technical characteristics of the slot and of the relative slot positioner, could be interesting to explore the field of this application system.
