Milos is celebrating a successful and comprehensive Technical Workshop event at their facility near Prague, Czech Republic. Attended by individuals representing rental and staging companies from all industry sectors as well as Milos users from across Europe, the two-day event was designed to highlight new and key products in the Milos range of trussing, staging and roofing systems. It also focused on the services and support offered by the company.
Jeff Broitman from Milos America kicked offered a tour around Milos’ extensive manufacturing facility. This enabled attendees to see firsthand all the elements involved in the manufacturing process, including cutting and automatic welding, all types of trusses, the production of circles and other shapes and special projects, control, packing and final products. It also included the Milos Design Centre, which is at the core of all their worldwide operations.
Detailed presentations included an evaluation of the MR3 large roof system by Milos’ Milan Kolousek. The flagship MR3 product covers areas of up to 3014ft² (280m²) with a full height of 49.2 feet (15m) and is suitable for big concerts and festivals. Kolousek also explained all the benefits of one of Milos’ newest products, a free-standing LED Screen Support system, with an impressive weight loading of 2.5 tons, offering a maximum 23’ (7m) span and heights of up to 23’ (7m).
Michal Zykan gave an overview of the highly flexible Milos S4 staging system - an option for use on major events due to its fast assembly using scaffolding methodology, with unique adjustability from 3.82’ (1m) up to 8.2’ (2.5m) off the floor.
Norbert Tripp, Expo Engineering from Germany, presented the Static section on the second day. This covered many topics including material quality vs. truss loading capacity, truss elements and pre-installation inspections, connection options and their respective loading capabilities, wind protection for ground support and roofs, plus other elements of relevant structural engineering and construction. This session also generated much lively discussion and idea exchanges.
Milos Technical Workshops have a great track record. Says Ji?í Br?a, “It is always good for us to meet the people out there who are using our products hands-on in so many different situations, and hear what they have to say. Once again, we have experienced lots of positive feedback and all our visitors went away with a greater knowledge and understanding of the products, the company’s philosophies and services and the people who make it all rock!”
