IBA defies world crisis with larger show in store

first_imgThe 21st IBA international bakery exhibition, due to take place in Düsseldorf this year, will be larger than in 2006, despite the recession, say the organisers.Bernd Dieckmann, of IBA’s advisory board and MD of ingredients supplier Ireks, said: “The global economic crisis has left its mark on the baking industry, but has also provided opportunities. More exhibitors have registered this year and requested more space than for the previous IBA. There is also a growing number of foreign exhibitors.”Over 990 companies have booked over 123,000sq m for the show, set to run from October 3-9. Machinery and raw ingredients will dominate, but shopfitting refrigeration, sales and energy-saving will all feature strongly.The show is designed to appeal to all sectors of the industry, from the smallest craft baker up to the largest industrial firm. One area in Hall 11 will focus on coffee machines, accessories and coffee-making.As it is 60 years since the first IBA, any baker or confectioner celebrating a 60th birthday this year will be granted free admission for one day.l For details, visit www.iba.de.last_img read more

Teslas Latest Software Update Helps Thaw Charge Port

first_img Watch Tesla Model 3 RWD Get Tested In Snow Without Winter Tires Source: Electric Vehicle News Author Liberty Access TechnologiesPosted on December 29, 2018Categories Electric Vehicle News Tesla Model 3 notes issues in cold weatherThis winter – as there have been well over 100,000 Tesla Model 3 delivered – more reports on issues in cold weather appear.Some concerns are door handles, frameless windows and the charge port.In the case of charge port, it turns out that the latch could freeze shut, so if there was a plug connected, you can’t pull it off to drive away.Winter with Tesla Model 3 Watch Tesla Model 3 AWD Tackle Snowy Snoqualmie Pass: Video Tesla Model 3 Winter Test: Cold Weather Demands A Long-Range Battery Hopefully, the driver can provide some heat, maybe using the flame thrower or at least hair dryer, but this is not the thing you would like to experience.Tesla just released a new software update (2018.50) to unfreeze the charge port using the climate system (just set preconditioning to HI), although it’s not clear how technically the cabin heating can be directed towards charge port.“When you set mobile preconditioning to HI, the climate system will better thaw your charge port in freezing conditions”Electrek explains that it’s the second attempt Tesla is making, as the previous temporary solution simply was to keep it unlatched:“In the previous “cold weather improvements” update, Tesla changed the behavior of the charge port in order for the latch to remain unlatched to allow a charge cable to be inserted, even in the event that the latch is frozen.It wasn’t clear at what temperature that was triggered and of course, it also comes with a caveat since it also means that someone could easily remove the charge cable.”Low temperatures affect various things on all types of cars.
