Corporate videos and commercials in Italy

Corporate videos and commercials are the best way to introduce your products and services to customers in the Italian market. They are not only able to communicate the value of your products and services in a few seconds, but also quickly and effectively communicate your brand identity and the commitment you put into your business.

However, it is not enough to make a good corporate video, it is also essential to spread your video through the right channels, to ensure that your company and your products are known by a wide audience, interested in what you sell.

For this reason DMA International not only produces high quality corporate videos thanks to technical operators and film-level authors, but has developed a series of media partnerships with national newspapers, chambers of commerce and institutions, in order to spread your videos through the best channels available in Italy.

DMA International is the right partner to develop your video communication for the Italian market.

DMA International produces the video dedicated to the “Innovation and Digital Transition” workshop with the participation of Speakers of Ansaldo Energia, Danieli Telerobot and BU Mechatronics, organized by the Duplomatic Group

DMA International developed the video production dedicated to the debate that took place in Parma, Italy, in May 2022, with prestigious speakers.

During the SPS IPC Drives 2022 show in Parma, Italy, Duplomatic Group organized a panel about Digital Transition and Innovation, featuring speakers from leading companies in the industry, including Ansaldo Energia.

The event “Human in OR out the loop? Governing the complexity of a sustainable digital transition“, organized by the Mechatronics Business Unit of Duplomatic MS, took place during SPS, the Automation and Digital Innovation Exposition in Parma, Italy.

The panel, moderated by the journalist Biagio Simonetta, Finanza e Digitale, Il Sole 24 Ore, was attended by Duplomatic CEO Roberto Maddalon and Ivano Lavina, Business Development Manager of the BU Mechatronics who, together with the guest speakers David Corsini – CEO of Danieli Telerobot, Giuseppe Marino – CEO of Ansaldo Energia, Andrea Ridi – Entrepreneur in the A.I. sector in the USA, have given life to a reflection about the role of technology at the service of the transformation of industry towards sustainability and the enhancement of the human factor.

The speakers emphasized how the widespread adoption of digital technologies and the development of Artificial Intelligence must be placed in a context of enhancement of the human factor in support of a production capable of having a positive impact on consumers and the environment.
The theme of sustainable development, according to the 2030 Agenda guidelines and the opportunities offered by the Italian Recovery and Resilience Plan, was, in fact, the focus from which the discussion began: the speakers highlighted, from different points of view and business experiences, the importance of digital transformation as an enabling factor for production in which integration man-product-environment is strong, positive and constructive. Today, smart solutions, capable of communicating thanks to IoT protocols such as IO-Link, guarantee the availability of all the information necessary to make products more efficient and improve the user experience. “Discussion about these themes is fundamental. In these first 70 years of our history, in Duplomatic we have always focused on technological evolutions, developing solutions to improve industrial production from the point of view of performance, efficiency and certainly sustainability” said Roberto Maddalon, CEO of Duplomatic.

With the onset of Industry 4.0, the transformation of manufacturing implies a broad and structured metamorphosis of the concept of factory” said Giuseppe Marino, CEO of Ansaldo Energia. “This evolution cannot be separated from an enhancement of people and their skills. More and more new professional figures will be required, capable of responding to the needs of a new, digital and sustainable production “.

At SPS show, Duplomatic is also present with its own booth, where it exhibits electric and sustainable products for linear motion, as well as IO-Link Competence Center in Italy, in collaboration with the Profibus Profinet Consortium, for the training and development of a connected and smart manufacturing.

The industry automation and digitalisation fair registered excellent numbers and future prospects. 36,522 visitors, 802 exhibitors.

More than 36,500 visitors made their way through the stands at SPS Italia, amongst an atmosphere charged with the world of industry’s enthusiasm at being united once again in Parma. The fair, which took place from 24 to 26 May, took visitors on a journey into the automation and digitalisation of industry, with stands and District 4.0 showcasing top technologies. Special attention was placed on sustainability, which was a central theme of the new observatory, presented during the opening panel discussion.

Donald Wich, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt Italia, expressed his satisfaction following the closure of the event: “we have taken off once again with the right energy, and it was exciting to see the event get back on track and experience the buzz of the fair. This edition really lived up to expectations.”

Marco Vecchio, Secretary of ANIE Automazione commented: 
“The 10th edition of SPS Italia has been a great success! There was a strong desire to reconnect with each other after having been isolated for so long, and the large number of visitors was further proof of that. It was interesting to see the many technological innovations presented that bear testament to the constant evolution underway in this field, guided by digitalisation and environmental sustainability. Our association was able to present various new initiatives and we hope that the positive figures presented during the fair regarding this sector will also continue in 2022.”

Duplomatic’s Mechatronics Business Unit exhibits the new sustainable solutions for linear motion at the SPS show in Parma, Italy (Hall 5 – Stand H002).

In the field of electrical actuation, the consolidated series of ISO electric cylinders – also in the version with integrated load cell – for industrial automation, produced at the Rosta (Turin, Italy) headquarters and core business of the division, has recently been joined by new product lines: linear modules, both belt, and screw, linear screw tables both for needs that require a Cartesian XYZ or a seventh axis for handling robots or Cobots, servo presses for heavy applications and a wide range of brushless motors create complete solutions for every application.In the field of industrial automation, Duplomatic will exhibit at SPS electrical solutions for the construction of presses for different applications, featuring three significant innovations: in addition to the mechanical and electronic redesign of the ECF series and to the introduction of the new ECP series for heavy applications, the range of linear axes and tables will be presented.

The ISO ECF series of electric cylinders, with integrated load cells, has been completely renewed at the design level to offer the market an increasingly performing and economically competitive product. In addition, the standardization of components allows Duplomatic to offer rapid deliveries, without giving up the choice offered by the breadth of the range.

A new entry is a series of ECP4 servo presses for heavy use, made with a body entirely in steel and which can integrate ground screws with planetary rollers. The ECP series satisfies the needs of applications that go up to workloads of 20-25 tons, guaranteeing a long life expectancy for the mechanics and a 100% Duty Cycle.

The new range of linear axes and tables, with toothed belt or ball screw drive, is proposed to complement the Duplomatic offer in assembly processes in the world of light industrial automation. Duplomatic also offers brushless motors and high-power drivers, equipped with Safe Torque Off functions and the most popular communication protocols.
Duplomatic thus strengthens its position in the industrial automation sector, proposing itself as a partner for both hydraulic and electrical solutions. Duplomatic will also be present at SPS 2022 at the booth of the Profibus Profinet Consortium as IO-Link competence center in Italy.
