What will the foundry industry of the future look like? Can production be increased by means of intelligent value creation? And how flexible can process management really be guided by Smart Data? All of these questions were answered at this year's symposium "Digitalization in the Foundry Industry" at the beginning of October, organized by Prof. Schlüter of Ansbach University.
FAPS-IPC GmbH, under the direction of Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schlüter of Ansbach University of Applied Sciences, is organizing a symposium on the subject of "Digitization in the Foundry Industry". The German-speaking event will take place from 09 to 10 October 2019 in Nuremberg.
A research consortium consisting of the Fraunhofer IFF, Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, promeos GmbH and Leichtmetallgiesserei Bad Langensalza has developed a new technology that enables light metal foundries to reduce their production-related energy costs by up to 60 % and CO2 emissions by up to 80 %.
