The CeBIT, (in Deutsch) Centrum für Büroautomation, Informationstechnologie und Telekommunikation, is the international exhibition for digital business and ICT which took place in Hanover (Germany) from March 20th to 24th.
Every year, 3000 companies meet about 200 000 visitors. With Japan as country organizing partner, the main idea was to promote the concept of a “5.0 Japanese society” and the priority to “bring production and technology together”.
Among the innovations, Epson announced its next generation of inkjet printing systems for ultra-fast professionals.
Furthermore, according to Robert Clark, Vice President of Epson Europe, their PaperLab is “the world’s first dry paper production system capable of producing a new paper out of the old and thousands of recycled sheets paper per day.”
As for Yamaha, its innovation is a drone helicopter (FAZER-R), designed for the agricultural sector. The machine can carry a 32-liter load.
The FAZER-R will be able to spray chemicals on four hectares without recharging, which allows a significant increase in efficiency and labour saving in the sector.
