Why are you exhibiting at DTU High Tech Summit 2019?“DTU is an internationally respected and acknowledged university. From our perspective, DTU stands for high quality and is a reliable source of technical knowledge – the same set of values we highly appreciate at ACTEC in our daily work with batteries. Moreover, the summit focuses on some very interesting technologies and market segments. Plus, it has proven significant results over the past few years, since it first got established. We have noticed these results – we noticed the ability to attract great stakeholders, and we see a continued increase in the number of visitors. So, for ACTEC we see a perfect match – we get a huge opportunity to develop our business, and at the same time contributing with relevant technical knowledge within the battery field.”
Jan Hegnsgaard, Key Account Manager
Which main themes interest you the most?
“From a general point of view we have a great interest in most themes of modern and future technologies. Nowadays, you find gradually more and more technical products becoming wireless. It obviously calls for a wireless power solution which could easily be a battery! As a distributor, manufacturer, and specialist in batteries, we do therefore have a very open mind towards the different technologies being exposed at the upcoming summit.”
What role do digitalization and robotic technology play in your company?
“Along with all other companies we get influenced by the world and trends around us. Some of these movements require more attention than others. But first and foremost, we are very aware of sub-trends and technologies emerging from global digitalization, including robots, AI, IoT, etc. We pay great attention to the future markets and try to take a proactive approach in the way we shape our strategy and the way we invest and allocate our resources. To be more specific, our sales department regularly participates in various technology-oriented exhibitions all over Scandinavia. Latest, we had a stand at the IoT Week in Aarhus in June. And the next event will take place at DTU High Tech Summit 2019.
Digitalization also plays a vital part in the daily operations of other departments. Our production plant located in Randers, do for instance rely on semiautomatic machinery when manufacturing custom-made battery packs in different shapes, sizes, and chemistries.
Our test center handles large amounts of data collected both for internal use, but mainly for more external purposes, helping customers to get to know their batteries better, as well as providing quality data before deciding which battery solutions are most suitable for a specific application.
So, digitalization is unavoidable for ACTEC, and will most likely play an even bigger key role for us in the future.”
What holds the most value for you at the summit?
“It is a very rare opportunity to get in touch with potentially more than 6,000 visitors in only two days here in Denmark. So, we are looking very much forward to meeting and having a close dialogue with different technological companies, both start-ups, and more established ones, as well as other stakeholders.”
What can we expect from ACTEC A/S at DTU High Tech Summit 2019?
“When visiting ACTEC at the summit, you can expect to meet a dedicated and well-prepared team of passionate battery experts. As the official distributor of Panasonic batteries in Scandinavia, we will bring the latest news and inventions from Panasonic with us – together with nearly 30 years of experience within battery technology!
So don’t hesitate! Come by booth 26 and let us tell you more about Panasonic’s latest innovative li-ion pin-type cells – suitable for smaller applications and devices, or the more mature and verified Ni-MH cells which Panasonic for years has been incrementally evolving on – resulting in a more solid and stable chemistry, even when used in high demanding applications.
At ACTEC we look forward to two amazing days sharing our knowledge about batteries. So, don’t miss the chance to have an informal, but professional talk with our staff.”
“It’s no use closing your eyes to the changes. We need to constantly keep up and try to influence the process.”
