GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS & NEWCAST 2019 - THE HOTSPOT FOR INTERNATIONAL FOUNDRY AND METALLURGY TECHNOLOGY


In June 2019, Düsseldorf turns into the hotspot for international foundry and metallurgy technology: Around 2,000 international exhibitors will take part in the world’s leading trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST from June 25 to 29. The trade fair quartet covers the entire range of foundry technology, casting products, metallurgy and thermal processing technology in an extensive depth and scope. The main players of the industry are present in the capital of the Rhine region, as well as smaller, innovative companies. Around 78,000 visitors from around the world are expected to attend the industry highlight in 2019.


“The USP of this trade fair quartet is its almost complete market coverage, both with regard to offer and demand. The global players and market leaders will be represented at GMTN and present the current megatrends, innovations and state-of-the-art technology in twelve halls,” explains Friedrich Kehrer, Global Portfolio Director Metals and Flow Technology at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. “No other trade fair offers visitors such a comprehensive overview of the industry. In light of the current industry environment and such relevant topics such as Additive Manufacturing, Industry 4.0 or the huge potential of automotive lightweight construction, we are looking forward to a ground breaking GMTN,” says Friedrich Kehrer. The international coverage of the “Bright World of Metals” will be accordingly large in 2019. Experience shows that more than half the visitors come from overseas and Europe.


To make it easier to navigate the trade fairs, the individual halls have been structured thematically and / or have individual focal points. These are the following:


GIFA Hall 11: Pressure die casting and peripheral devices GIFA Hall 12: Gating and risering technology, Foundry chemistry GIFA Hall 13: Special show for “Additive Manufacturing”, Special


show “Casting Technologies”, GIFA Meeting Point, GIFA Forum GIFA Halls 15-17: Foundry machinery and plants, Manufacturing patterns, die and core making METEC Hall 3: Forging technology METEC Halls 4-5: Plant engineering, components and suppliers THERMPROCESS Hall 9: Symposium THERMPROCESS Hall 10: FOGI special show NEWCAST: Halls 13 and 14 including NEWCAST Forum


The second important success factor of “Bright World of Metals” is the expert supporting programme with international congresses and industry meetings such as the GIFA Conference, the European Steel Technology and Application Days/ESTAD, the European Metallurgical Conference/EMC, the THERMPROCESS symposium or the NEWCAST forum. Awards ceremonies play an equally important role, such as the NEWCAST Award and special shows such as the one that the Research Association of Industrial Furnace Manufacturers in the VDMA/FOGI puts on for the various industries.


The Special Show for Additive Manufacturing premiers at the GIFA in Hall 13. Whether you work in pattern and die making, in core making or in direct metal printing, foundries and their suppliers can open up tons of unforeseen potential using additive manufacturing. “We wanted our special show to provide a platform to unlock this potential”, explained Gerrit Nawracala, Deputy Director for Metals and Flow Technology at Messe Düsseldorf GmbH. “GIFA will provide a powerful boost for the industry, particularly in e-mobility and lightweight construction in the automotive industry. This was recently proved in a study on the influence of electromobility on the foundry industry and its products initiated by the Confederation of German Foundry Industry (BDG). According to the study, alternative drive concepts such as hybrid and electric drives require increasingly high casting quantities in comparison to those for single drives on a combustion motor,
