and this will continue to be the case up until to 2030.” It is probable that the peak in demand for casting will only be reached in 2030, according to the study from the BDG, thus providing optimal conditions for GIFA 2019.

ecoMetals & ecoTrails

With the ecoMetals campaign, the GMTN deals with a current topic that is becoming increasingly more important. Here, the focus lies on the aspects resource and energy efficiency, climate protection as well as innovative procedures and products. Exhibitors presenting products, solutions or process steps that are related to at least one of these topics can register these with the GMTN team. Visitors, on the other hand, can obtain information on this topic in our special brochure or find out more about the ecoMetals exhibitor offer online. In addition, we will be offering guided tours especially for interested visitors, as we did at GMTN 2015.

GIFA: A hotspot for technological highlights

The GIFA has been a hotspot for technological highlights and innovations for the entire value-added chain in casting technology for decades, and will prove itself once more in 2019. Over 900 exhibitors, hailing from all the leading countries, will appear in Halls 10 to 13 and 15 to 17. Among them are world market leaders such as Bühler AG (Switzerland), ASK Chemicals (Germany), FOSECO (Germany), Hüttenes Albertus (Germany), Kuka Deutschland GmbH (Germany), Loramendi S. Coop (Spain), the Sinto Group. A great number of industrial players from China and Italy have also already registered for this trade fair.

METEC 2019: The 10th edition is set for success

In its 10th edition, the International Metallurgical Trade Fair with Congresses will continue to build on its success from 2015: over 500 exhibitors from around the world will present systems for manufacturing iron ore, steel and non-ferrous metals, or for casting or moulding steel and equipment and components for metallurgical plants, rolling mills and steelworks in Halls 3, 4, and 5. The following companies have confirmed that they’ll be exhibiting: Inteco (Austria), Primetals Technologies Ltd. (UK), RHI Magnesita (Austria), SMS Group (Germany), Tenova S.P.A. (Italy) and Sinosteel (China). For the first time, forged parts will also be presented at METEC. Until now, these were part of NEWCAST. However, due to their growing importance they are better suited to the Metallurgical Trade Fair.

Industry greats at THERMPROCESS

With around 50 percent of participants coming from outside Germany and around 300 exhibitors, THERMPROCESS also belongs to the world’s leading trade fairs and is a must-attend event for international suppliers. This also reflects the current registration levels, with many industry greats on the list: Ajax Tocco Magnethermic GmbH (Germany), Andritz März GmbH (Germany), Electrotherm (India), Honeywell Thermal Solutions – Elster GmbH (Germany), Inductotherm Europe Ltd (UK), ITG Induktionsanlagen GmbH (Germany) and Seco/Warwick Europe (Poland) will display technological trends surrounding industrial ovens, industrial heat generation plants and thermal processes for precious metals, carbides, ceramics, steel and iron as well as in the field of components and equipment and processing and auxiliary materials.

NEWCAST: The most international trade fair

Right on time for the fifth edition, NEWCAST has become a significant international trade fair. In Halls 13 and 14, over 400 exhibitors demonstrate just how global the production of cast parts has become. Market leaders use this platform to exhibit, such as the Rexroth AG (Germany), Finoba Automotive GmbH (Germany), GOM GmbH (Germany), Gießerei Heunisch (Germany), Eisenwerk Brühl (Germany), Kimura Foundry Co. Ltd. (Japan), Kutes Metal Inc. (Turkey), Lomopress (Italy) and Waupaca Foundry (USA). Another striking factor in this trade fair are the large numbers of participants hailing from China, India and Turkey.
