Aachen was a lot of fun!

flucon’s trip to the 27th Aachen Colloquium in retrospect.

Last week our team went to Aachen to present our latest systems at the annual exhibition. From automobile makers to powertrain companies and research facilities, visitors had a lot of innovative products and concepts to look at. For three exciting days filled with profound discussions over groundbreaking technologies Aachen appeared once again as the capital of German engineering. Being a small part of that, flucon was proud to participate and show what their knowhow is all about.

For this year flucon put their focus on fluid aeration especially. So, in addition to our inline aeration sensor CGS, we also displayed our newly developed FOAM oil aeration test rig.

Another exhibit that we proudly presented was our latest innovation: the EPSILON+ dielectricity meter for impedance measurement of fluids and greases.

With 68 other companies there was a huge variety of technical aspects to be observed. Ranging from electric and hybrid drive engineering to high efficiency injection technologies, technical lectures gave insight into recent developments as well as into futuristic perspectives of mobility.

Our booth No. 43 was open to everyone interested in various topics like fluid measurement, dielectric properties or of course oil aeration. Offering them Schaumküsse (German “foamy kisses” candy) and bubble baths we had a little give-away for everyone to hopefully keep us in mind.

Besides staying at our booth and having a chat with our visitors, there were also other great things to do in Aachen: We had the opportunity to listen to many of the technical lectures, visited the beautiful historic downtown and took a trip to the test track nearby, which sure was one of the highlights.

Getting the chance to sit behind the wheels of some of the recent vehicle models with alternative drivetrains we drove a few laps and test some of the displayed cars such as the Tesla X and the fuel cell-powered Toyota Mirai.

On Wednesday evening it was eventually time to pack our things and go back home to Osterode. Having met so many interesting people and having seen various topics from today and tomorrow, Aachen sure was an inspiring and fun experience!
