Kees van Willenswaard visits trade fairs

Kees van Willenswaard, Senior Account Manager Weighing, visits many trade fairs on behalf of NMi, keeping abreast of the latest developments in the market for weighing instruments. In January, he visited the Verpackung Innovation 2014 fair in Hamburg, where he met various manufacturers of mainly industrial weighing machines. These included the MID-regulated automatic weighing machines such as multi-heads (OIML R61) and check weighers (OIML R51).

In February, Kees will be in Düsseldorf for the EuroShop Trade Fair, an exhibition geared to the retail market. The weighing scales on display at this trade fair are used in over-the-counter sales to consumers. These types of weighing instruments are also undergoing a strict modernisation process within which software is playing an increasingly more important role. The latest POS (Point of Sale) systems will be on show here, i.e. cash desk systems that interface with weighing machines. NMi is to the fore in the testing of such devices.

If you are attending this trade fair and would like to talk to Kees about what NMi has to offer in areas such as certification for European and global market access, please send him an email at
