What began as a trade exhibition with 93 exhibitors in 1996 has developed into a successful trade fair for die casting technology. The 10th EUROGUSS trade fair for die casting technology, processes and products, will be bigger and more international when it takes place in Nürnberg, Germany, January 14-16, 2014.
The products on display cover the full spectrum of die casting. “We are fully booked,” said Heike Slotta, director of exhibitions for NürnbergMesse. “This will be the biggest EUROGUSS we have ever had.” She expects more than 430 exhibitors by the time the show starts. Every second exhibitor comes from abroad, and more than 8,000 die casting experts are expected to visit from all over Europe.
The International German Die Casting Congress focuses on dialogue between research and application. Experts meet during the three days of the exhibition to discuss innovative research findings and the advantages of their technological application. At a special show, “Research for Knowledge,” national and international research institutes, universities and colleges present their training courses, services and research specializations.
The tenth anniversary will feature an exhibit on everyday objects made in die casting processes in bygone times and a “Big Baby” truck gearbox housing known as the world’s heaviest die casting to date.
