From 25th to 29th June 2019, on the "Bright World of Metals” in Düsseldorf which comprises the GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST trade fairs, everything revolved about thermoprocessing technology, cast products, metallurgy and foundry technology.
In a total of 12 exhibition halls trade visitors were able to obtain information from a large number of companies, from the manufacturing process to the finished casting. As an international trade fair for cast products the NEWCAST with its NEWCAST Forum offers the ideal platform within the trade fair quartet for exchanging ideas in the casting industry and also for generating new, interesting business contacts. Among the exhibitors was also the BLANK-Group, consisting of FEINGUSS and FORMENBAU BLANK GmbH, with a four-member exhibition team.
"NEWCAST is a special event for us, precisely because it only takes place every four years," reports Alfred Brückner, Sales Manager at BLANK. Beside the many specialist presentations and interesting discussions, the BLANK-Group was also delighted to receive the coveted NEWCAST Award in the category "Best lightweight solution". Managing Director Hubert Deutsch and Lionel Genesi, Head of Industrial Sales at BLANK, accepted the award at the ceremony. "We have earned this award as a team effort," stresses Hubert Deutsch. "Together we must break new ground in order to remain a modern, economically successful, international company in the future."
Many new contacts were made during the fair which will also be pursued in the follow-up of the fair. In addition, there is the presentation of the award for the wheel carrier of a racing car whose weight could be reduced by more than 35 percent with the help of simulations: All in all, it was an all-round successful fair.
