As a cooperation project between NürnbergMesse and Vogel Communications Group, SPOTLIGHTMETAL is organizing the German-speaking event "Forum Gießerei-Industrie" in Würzburg (Germany) for the first time on November 4 and 5, 2020. The aim of the event is to give the industry "impetus from the crisis".
Given the conditions we are experiencing due to the global health emergency, and for the sake of all, NürnbergMesse and B&N Exposiciones have decided to postpone the launch of EUROGUSS Mexico to a new date on May 4th to 6th 2021 at Expo Guadalajara, Mexico.
The current developments in the corona crisis leave many questions open, which the international foundry industry is facing. In this part of the webcast series, the effects of the crisis on China, India and Mexico will be discussed.
One way to update the HPDC product portfolio are innovative lightweight components and specific use of material properties. This study describes the potentials of HPDC components with optimized wall thicknesses by using modern simulation tools. A vehicle armrest is new developed as HPDC component with wall thickness of 0.8 mm.
Battery housings play a central role in the electrification of vehicles. In addition to the classic aluminum cast solution for a battery housing, Nemak also offers assembly solutions that require know-how in the field of joining techniques. At EUROGUSS 2020, Nemak highlighted typical problem areas in BEV battery housings and demonstrated approaches to delivering tailor-made solutions.
Release agents are of central significance in die casting technology. They affect the quality of the cast parts, the lifetime of the molds and the length of the casting cycles. Release agents must be matched with the respective casting material and should meet high requirements in terms of economic efficiency and environmental compatibility.
The winners of the EUROGUSS Talent Award have been decided and will be announced on the first day of the fair. The awards ceremony will be held on 14th January 2020 at 1:30 p.m. in Speakers’ Corner in Hall 8 (booth 8-524). This is also where the winners will present their submissions afterwards.
The market for additive manufacturing is growing very fast and strongly worldwide in various different areas and applications. Key markets include the aerospace industry, health care including medical technology and the automotive industry. Thus, additive manufacturing holds great potential also for die casting foundries.
Following its successful premiere, EUROGUSS ASIA PACIFIC goes into its second round as part of the Metal AP metal industry exhibition from 12th-14th December 2019 at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand. Industry experts and local partners will present trends, innovations and information on developments in the Thai foundry market.
2019 is the year in which 3D printing has finally arrived in the production halls. For foundries, this technology has a lot to offer and science is working intensively to advance it. EUROGUSS 2020 will dedicate a pavilion to Additive Manufacturing.
