EUROGUSS will take place at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 16 to 18 January 2018. With around 600 exhibitors and more than 12,000 visitors expected, it’s the leading trade fair for the entire die casting supply chain, from raw materials through technologies and processes to finished products. An attractive supporting programme featuring the International German Die Casting Congress, a finishing technology pavilion, practical workshops and awards ceremonies for die-casting competitions for aluminium, zinc, and for the first time, magnesium, make EUROGUSS the No. 1 gathering for the European die casting industry. The Nuremberg trade fair experts are also involved in other die casting events worldwide in 2018: at CHINA DIECASTING from 18 to 20 July in in Shanghai (China), at Fundiexpo in Guadalajara, Mexico for the first time from 24 to 26 October, and at ALUCAST in Delhi, India from 6 to 8 December.
“The preparations for EUROGUSS are going really well,” says a delighted Christopher Boss, Exhibition Director at NürnbergMesse.” More than 600 exhibitors – more than ever before – have registered for the event. Many exhibitors have chosen to have larger stands than they did at the last event. Naturally, all the market leaders will be out in force again, but we also have new exhibitors on board. Every last square metre of the three exhibition halls has been booked, so we are absolutely full. This shows just how important die casting is for lightweight construction.”
Products on display cover the entire die casting supply chain. More than half of EUROGUSS exhibitors are international. After Germany, the biggest exhibiting nation is Italy, followed by Turkey, Switzerland, Austria and Spain. Around 38 percent of the exhibitors are diecasting foundries. The remaining exhibitors will be showcasing die casting technology like machines, peripheral equipment, furnaces, moulds, metals, alloys, release agents and operating materials. There will also be displays covering the after-treatment of castings, hardening and surface technology, quality management, control and drive technology, rapid prototyping and software.
International German Die Casting Congress in NCC Ost for first time
In 2018, the International German Die Casting Congress, which is very popular with trade fair visitors, will take place in the directly adjacent and easily accessible NCC Ost Congress Center. Presentations on the latest industry issues and developments will be the focus at the established three day event. The presentations will be simultaneously translated into English for the benefit of all international visitors. As of November, the congress programme can be downloaded from: www.euroguss.de/programme. The congress is hosted by the Association of German Die Casting Foundries (VDD) within the German Foundry Association (BDG). Participation in the congress is included in the trade fair admission price.
Finishing technology pavilion in Hall 6
The separate pavilion for the key topic of finishing technology, which successfully premiered two years ago, will be featured once again in 2018. The after-treatment and coating of functional and heavy duty castings is an important issue for casting foundries. Appropriate machines and processing technologies help give the surfaces of cast products a high-quality appearance and may involve treatments like deburring, grinding, polishing, coating or finishing. The finishing pavilion in Hall 6, Stand 6-333 will showcase companies that offer machining and surface finishing of lightweight metals.
First-hand experience of die casting events worldwide
NürnbergMesse Group is reinforcing the position of its successful events at its home location of Nuremberg by developing worldwide product families. The company sees itself as paving the way for German and other European die casting foundries aiming to break into the international market or wanting to strengthen their global business relationships. The next event in the EUROGUSS product family is CHINA DIECASTING in Shanghai from 18 to 20 July 2018, which expects to welcome around 350 exhibitors and 15,000 trade visitors. For the first time, NürnbergMesse Group will have a pavilion at the leading foundry exhibition Fundiexpo in Guadalajara, Mexico from 24 to 26 October 2018. Around 170 exhibitors and 5,000 trade visitors are expected to attend. The next event after that will be from 6 to 8 December 2018, when ALUCAST in Greater Noida, Delhi/NCR, India, will open its doors to around 150 exhibitors and more than 3,500 trade visitors.
