Newcast 2015 will off er trade visitors and exhibitors from all over the world important synergies. Only one ticket is necessary to attend all four events.


Newcast Newcast 2015, the fourth International Trade Fair for Pre-


cision Castings, is the youngest of the four metallurgy trade fairs (launched in 2003) and is becoming increasingly popular. “T e production of castings has developed into a very


international business over the last decade and this is re- fl ected at Newcast,” said Project Manager Janike Rotthoff . In 2015, about 370 exhibitors from 31 diff erent countries will present their products and services on 71,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space in Halls 13 and 14. T e booking status corre- sponds almost precisely to the world market: 148 Chinese suppliers of castings will exhibit at Newcast 2015, demon- strating that they are now some of the biggest players on the world market. T e second largest international contin- gent comes from Turkey (42 companies), while Japan is in third place with 30 exhibitors. International market leaders such as Georg Fischer Auto-


motive, Class Guss, KSM Castings, Gießerei Heinisch and Finoba Automotive will be exhibiting. In addition to the castings presentations in the exhibi-


tion halls, Newcast will also off er information about research fi ndings. T e Newcast Forum will provide insights into the technical and scientifi c progress in metalcasting technology. T e Newcast Award will honor the most innovative and creative castings from the industry.
