ABL at SPS Automation in India
As the second day of India's SPS Automation show is well underway, ABL is enjoying the attention received from potential new customers for the latest addition to our spindle range.  The MM080C is a micro-machining spindle with a difference as it includes an integrated vector control Guboa Sensor/encoder, designed in partnership with Chiarey Enterprises and Guboa Sensors to enhance accuracy of speed and positional control whilst reducing power consumption and ultimately increasing profibility for our customers.
Held in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, the show runs from 7-9 April and attracts exhibitors and visitors from all over the world interested in the latest automation technology.  Being part of the Guboa stand has allowed the joining of knowledge and expertise and is the perfect way for us to demonstrate the capabilities of the spindle.
Below we see the Guboa booth and the ABL spindles on display.

Optimism is high after a couple of very productive days at SEMICON China in Shanghai.  Yesterday saw new interest in our Dicing spindle range from a potential customer currently using another supplier and wishing to broaden their supply chain as well as a customer looking to use our spindle for a new application.

Today too has been positive with meetings and proposed new orders from existing customers looking to increase their production and therefore spindle stock.  Customer visits have also been taking place and future plans made suggest a renewed bouyancy in the market.

Last week ABL held a charity fund raising day to raise money for SPRING, a charity that supports parents and relatives through the loss of a baby, something that tragically happend to a member of the ABL team a couple of weeks ago.  

Rainbow Day was devised by our staff after reading the SPRING chairty idea that 'a new baby is like a rainbow after the storm.......when an rainbow appears, it does not mean the storm never happened, but that it is something beautiful and full of light....'.

To show our support to our colleague and this worthwhile charity we thought we would raise money and have some fun at the same time, so we decided to dress in the colours of the rainbow and charge people for having their face painted.  

As well as creating an increased awareness for the work that SPRING do, a massive £700 was raised for the charity!

We would like to thank everyone who got involved and donated to the cause. The day was a huge success and provided a welcome ray of light for our colleague at this sad time.

Below we see some of the ABL staff who dressed up on the day.  Well done everyone!!

The team have now safely returned form a typhoon swept Shanghai after last weeks C-Touch show.  This was the first time that we had exhibited at this show viewing it as an opportunity to gain further insight into the touchpanel industry, however it turned into much more than that as we found there was a lot of interest in our products coming from machine builders visiting the show.  There was also interest from various end-users who were thinking of moving away from using ball-bearing spindles in favour of the cleaner, more economical and longer lasting air bearing spindles.

Although this was a small show, we came away from it having had many positive meetings and visits from people already well established in this sector of the industry.  We will be exhibiting at November's C-Touch show in Shenzhen which is promised to be significantly bigger.

The CPCA 2015 show in Shanghai is underway and is already shaping up to be better than last year's show with many more people coming through the doors.  Representatives from ABL have been joined by our agents Zhenlong Electric at our booth 7A53 and have reported that not only is there an increase in visitors, but also in general optimism for the year ahead.    We have had enquiries from both existing and new customers, some of which are currently in the process of placing orders.  Despite this being a PCB show, we have also received enquiries for our Dicing range of spindles which is encouraging.  More news to follow at the end of the show.
