Attractive Support Program With Special Shows
(Surface Technology) Pavilion
The post-treatment and coating of functional and highly durable die-cast parts is a key theme for die-cast foundries. Corresponding machinery and process technology ensure a high-quality finish for die-cast product surfaces. Deburring, grinding, polishing, coating or finishing are the corresponding processing cycles. For the first time, a separate exhibition area and pavilion at EUROGUSS will be dedicated to this special topic. Here, suppliers in the areas light metals-processing and finishing will be presented.
Internationaler Deutscher Druckgusstag
(International German Die Casting Congress) in Hall 6
The specialist presentations delivered by the International German Die Casting Congress on all three days of the fair are very popular with the trade fair visitors. The forum, which is positioned at the heart of the fair action in Hall 6, provides a good opportunity to enter into an exchange with colleagues and experts on current sector themes and developments. The "Innovative tempering concepts for die-casting mould design" and "Industry 4.0 - Influence of digitization on future production in foundries" are just two examples of the exciting presentation themes at the next Die Casting Congress. The full programme will be available from November on the Internet at www.euroguss.de. The organisers of the specialist Congress are Verband Deutscher Druckgießereien (VDD, Association of German Pressure Die-Casters) and Bundesverband der Gießerei-Industrie (BDG, Federal Association of the German Foundry Industry).

Zinkdruckguss-Wettbewerb (Zinc Die-Casting Competition)
Especially outstanding zinc die-cast parts are to be honoured by the Initiative Zink in the Zinc Die-casting Competition. These parts fulfil either special requirements placed on construction, design, mould design, die-casting technology, processing, surface treatment and/or decorative characteristics, or distinguish themselves through an innovation and/or by switching from other materials or production processes to zinc die-casting. The aim of the competition is to present the diversity of applications, the outstanding characteristics of zinc die-casting and not least the efficiency of the participating foundry companies. The award presentation will also be held within the framework of the official opening ceremony on the evening of the fair. Further information on the award winners and their products is available from the Initiative Zink at EUROGUSS in Hall 6, Stand 6-420.
