CastForge gets off to a good start: More than 100 exhibitors registered

Messe Stuttgart acquired the 100th exhibitor for CastForge with Rosswag GmbH. The trade fair for castings and forgings with machining takes place from 5 to 7 June 2018 at the Stuttgart trade fair centre. The participation of numerous companies and associations from abroad highlights the international importance of the event.

“We were very excited over the last few days to see which company we would be announcing as the 100th exhibitor”, states Gunar Mey, Department Director for Industrial Solutions at Messe Stuttgart. “We are very pleased to report Rosswag GmbH, one of the leading companies in the area of forging technology. It also highlights that we struck the right chord in the industry with the trade fair concept.”

For Thomas Keller, Sales Manager at Rosswag GmbH, there is another strong argument for exhibiting at CastForge besides the specific alignment of the trade fair in Stuttgart: “For us, with our head office in Pfinztal the trade fair is a home game so to speak, which addresses our target group exactly. As a market leader in the area of forging technology, with CastForge we see a massive opportunity to address new customers and establish contact.” 

Shortly before the registration of Rosswag GmbH, Messe Stuttgart received confirmation of participation from Odlewnia Żeliwa Śrem. The PGO Group, the largest manufacturer of castings and forgings in Poland, will exhibit here. Their Vice Chair Andrzej Bulanowski explains: “CastForge is the first trade fair for castings and forgings with machining. For us it is therefore a promising platform for the presentation of our products. In addition, the DACH (Germany, Austria and Switzerland) region is a very important sales market for our company. The attractive venue in Stuttgart, capital of the state of Baden-Württemberg, also plays a key role here. The trade fair gives us an excellent opportunity to establish business contacts and acquire new customers.”

The Foundry Association of the Czech Republic is also convinced of the trade fair and decided straight away to take part. In just 14 days eight members were already acquired for a joint stand. For the association’s President, Josef Hlavinka, the positive response was not surprising. He adds: “This trade fair is the only one to specialise in cast iron parts and forgings. There is currently no shortage of orders. However, our member companies are looking to the future and as a result want to showcase themselves at this trade fair. It is an exciting platform for us, in order to come into contact with a range of distinguished companies for whom the Foundry Association of the Czech Republic has a lot to offer. We are confident that this trade fair will open up new opportunities and possibilities.” Germany is an important market for the Foundry Association of the Czech Republic. “Our industry also depends primarily on exports. Around 80 percent of overall production is exported, of which around 70 percent goes to Germany”, reports Josef Hlavinka.

Messe Stuttgart is an attractive location for CastForge. South-west Germany is one of the largest hubs of manufacturing industries in Europe. Furthermore, the trade fair grounds has good transport connections, meaning visitors from Germany and abroad can conveniently travel to the trade fair by car, public transport or plane. Lastly, Messe Stuttgart bundles high industrial and organisational competence in its team and with its industrial fairs alone addresses more than 3,200 exhibitors and over 125,000 visitors. Exhibitors and visitors of CastForge reap these benefits.

About CastForge
As a trade fair, CastForge places its focus on castings and forgings and their machining. The industry will meet for the first time in Stuttgart from 5 to 7 June 2018 to present its unique range of products and services. International exhibitors will present their products to a wide range of visitors from mechanical engineering and plant construction, automotive and drive technology, construction machinery, pumps and hydraulic engineering and also the supply industry. The information provided to CastForge visitors is rounded off by other concurrent industry trade fairs: Global Automotive Components and Suppliers Expo, Engine Expo, Automotive Interiors Expo, Automotive Testing Expo, Surface Technology Germany and LASYS, the international trade fair for laser material processing. Messe Stuttgart is located right next to the international Stuttgart Airport and has a direct junction onto the A8 motorway.

Arburg at the PIAE Europe 2018

Arburg will for the first time take part in the PIAE (Plastics In Automotive Engineering) Europe 2018 congress. Some 1,500 participants and more than 110 exhibitors are expected attend this prestigious event hosted by the German Association of Engineers (VDI) at the Congress Center Rosengarten in Mannheim on 14 and 15 March 2018. During around 80 specialist presentations by automotive manufacturers and suppliers, plastics experts from the automotive industry will provide comprehensive information on many new developments and processes within the sector.

Lightweight construction processes such as Profoam offer great potential for the automotive sector.

Arburg will in fact be taking part in this important VDI congress, the largest in the world for the automotive industry, in two guises: as an exhibitor, and in the context of the specialist presentations.

The ProLemo project: lightweight motors for electric vehicles
On 14 March 2018, Dr. Thomas Walther, Head of Application Technology at Arburg, will give a presentation on the topic of “ProLemo – Production technology for lightweight motor concepts”. In the ProLemo project, a number of partners work on production techniques relating to efficient lightweight motors for electric vehicles. It focuses on the mass production of parts made from metal-filled polymer materials. Rotor discs for electric drives are produced using the two-component injection moulding process. In a first step, the internal contour for connection to the shaft is produced from fibreglass-reinforced PA6. To produce the moulded-on rotor segments, a so-called Soft Magnetic Composite (SMC) was chosen, which consists of the matrix material PA6 highly filled with an Fe8Ni92 permalloy. This project has been so successful for all parties involved that patents have already been applied for.

Arburg to present extensive automotive-industry offerings
At the Arburg stand in the foyer of the congress centre, videos will show the use of special Allrounder injection moulding machines and turnkey systems as well as the Freeformer industrial additive manufacturing system. Furthermore, numerous product samples will illustrate the wide range of options offered by Arburg’s technology solutions for the automotive sector. These include multi-component injection moulding, overmoulding of inserts and lightweight construction processes such as Fibre Direct Compounding (FDC), Particle-foam Composite Injection Moulding (PCIM), the physical foaming techniques Profoam and Mucell, as well as the integration of thermoplastic composites.

The stand will be staffed by experts, who will present the Arburg portfolio to the visitors as well providing individual consulting.

The Zenith of precision for leading pumping technologies manufacturer

Netzsch, one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of pumping technologies and their systems, has purchased a ‘special version’ Zenith 400 helical profile grinding machine from Precision Technologies Group (PTG) company, Holroyd Precision.

The Zenith 400 will be installed and commissioned at Netzsch’s manufacturing facility in Brazil during early 2018. Netzsch will use the Zenith 400 to produce a range of pump screws. These will then be used in a number of the company’s innovative pumping technologies, which include cavity, multi-screw and rotary lobe pumps.

“We are delighted that Netzsch has recognised the high-precision capabilities offered by the Zenith 400,” comments Holroyd Regional Sales Director, Steven Benn. “The immense flexibility that Zenith 400 machines bring to production strategies was also a major factor in Netzsch deciding to place this high value order with us.”

The Zenith 400 helical profile grinder
Representing the very pinnacle of Holroyd’s helical profile grinding technologies, Zenith 400 models provide high stock removal rates and aggressive semi finishing, with production rates and accuracies tailored to the most demanding of manufacturing requirements. Encompassing advanced innovations and a new control system that incorporates development and production software, Zenith 400 machines have been designed to suit all user needs, in either research and development or mass production.

Three grinding capabilities, one machine
In standard form, the Zenith 400 is the first machine of its kind to offer all three grinding technologies: aluminium oxide, ultra hard plated CBN and vitrified, dressable CBN – effectively providing roughing and finishing capabilities on one machine. Holroyd Precision has also developed a process whereby ultra hard plated CBN can be used for rough grinding, after which a vitrified CBN finishing wheel can be used on the same arbor. “This newly developed technique means we can use high-efficiency plated CBN for rough grinding and the versatility of the vitrified CBN process for finish grinding,” adds Steven Benn. “The vitrified CBN enables us to change the shape of the wheel and also re-dress the wheel in light of any wear.”

Holroyd 3D CMM component scanning
In choosing the Zenith 400, NETZSCH has also been able to benefit from the unique Holroyd 3D CMM component-scanning probe with fully automatic compensation feedback. Offering class-leading accuracy and improved production rates, the scanning technology removes any need for off-machine component inspection. Instead, parts can be accurately ground then measured, with any deviations being automatically corrected before completion of the manufacturing cycle.

Key features of Zenith 400 helical profile grinding machines include:

  • Vitrified Al2O3, vitrified CBN and plated CBN grinding wheel options
  • Accelerated set-up, with fully automated grinding wheel balancing system
  • Powerful, menu-driven touch screen programming
  • High stock removal rates, aggressive semi-finishing and precision fine finishing
  • Holroyd’s unique on-board 3D CMM component scanning probe with full automatic compensation feedback
  • High speed spindles and advanced in-process dressing systems to maintain profile accuracy and keep the grinding wheel in optimum condition
  • Complete integration with automated parts handling systems

PTG. The first name in precision

AM Expo: Markt der additiven Fertigung wächst rasant

Am 6. und 7. März 2018 findet bei der Messe Luzern die 2. AM Expo statt. Anhand von sogenannten Showcases zeigt die einzige Schweizer Fachmesse für professionellen 3-D-Druck konkretund anwendungsorientiert, wie im stark wachsenden Markt der additiven Fertigung die Post abgeht.

Es klingt wie Science Fiction: Ein hochkomplexes Steuerungselement für die Luft-und Raumfahrt, bisher aus 71 Einzelteilen in zeitaufwendigen und störungsanfälligen Verfahren zusammengesetzt, wird neu in wenigen Prozessschrittenschnell und kostengünstig additiv gefertigt. Dieses und zahlreiche weitere sehr erfolgreich umgesetzte Anwendungsbeispiele nationaler und internationaler Unternehmen werden an der AM Expo präsentiert. Diese Showcases der rund 100 Aussteller aus den Bereichen Auftragsfertigung, Engineering, Software, Maschinen und Materialien zeigen das ganze Potenzial des Additive Manufacturing (AM) auf. Und dieses ist zurzeit enorm: nicht nur bezüglich Innovationen in verschiedensten Anwendungsfeldern, sondern auch bezüglich der Marktzuwächse –diese werden sich laut Branchenkennern künftig bei 40 bis 50 Prozent pro Jahr bewegen.

Treffpunkt für bestehende und zukünftige Innovationspartner
An der AM Expo sind alle wichtigen nationalen und internationalen Player entlang der gesamten Wertschöpfungskette unter einem Dach versammelt –sie bietet deshalb die perfekte Gelegenheit, sich mit der rasch wachsenden AM-Community zu vernetzen. Dank einer neu konzipierten Website ist dies auch bereits vor der Messe möglich: Aussteller und Besucher können sich online optimal auf die AM Expo vorbereiten, indem sie Gesprächstermine mit potenziellen Projektpartnern vor Ort vereinbaren. Zudem bieten die unzähligen auf die Website hochgeladenen und während der Messe physisch erlebbaren Showcases Inspirationen für eigene AM-Projekte, die an den Messetagen zusammen mit den passenden Partnern konkretisiert werden können. «Die Showcases bewirken einen Aha-Effekt und zeigen dem Unternehmer, dass vielleicht gerade dieses oder jenes in 3-D-Druck realisierte Bauteil– adaptiert auf seine individuelle Anwendung –die Lösung ist für ihn», so René Ziswiler, Leiter der Industriemessen bei der Messe Luzern.

Innovation Symposiumund AMX Night
Die AM-Technologie bietet grossartigeInnovationschancen. So stellenam Innovation Symposium Experten in 42 Referaten bereits erfolgreich in die Praxis umgesetzte Beispiele aus sämtlichenAnwendungsfeldern der additiven Fertigungvor. An der AM Expo dabei zu sein, bedeutet aber nicht nur zu entdecken, was bereits heute alles möglich ist mit 3-D-Druck, sondern auch mitzudiskutieren und im Austausch mit der Industrie, Wissenschaft und Forschung herauszufinden, wohin die Reise geht. Die AMX Night ist schliesslich der Networking-Anlass der Fachmesse – hier wird auch der zweite AM Report präsentiert: Darin sinddie zehn innovativsten an der AM Expo gezeigtenProjekte detailliert festgehalten und bieten auch nach der Messe Inspiration und Anregung für eigene 3-D-Ideen.
