Germany Positive feedback for new trade fair concept of Cast Forge
Messe Stuttgart has presented its concept for the new trade show Cast Forge at a get-together . According to the show organiser, the concept was met with a high level of acceptance. The trade fair is specifically addressed at castings, forgings and their machining.
The trade fair will be held for the first time in Stuttgart from 5 to 7 June 2018. It showcases the entire value-added chain from the cast or forging blank to machining through to the final component and for the first time offers manufacturers an opportunity to present their range of cast iron, grey cast iron and spheroidal graphite iron as well as non-ferrous castings and forgings to a wide audience. According to Messe Stuttgart, the trade show is aimed at visitors from mechanical engineering and plant construction, automotive and drive technology, construction machinery, pumps and hydraulic engineering and also the supply industry.
Andreas Zweifel from Grohmann Aluworks GmbH & Co. KG, Sales & Marketing Department, summarises his decision to participate in Cast Forge: “To date there has been no trade fair for the manufacturing processes aluminium-sand and gravity die casting. But there is a massive buyer market. The Stuttgart trade fair grounds is predestined for this event.”
Timo Richter, Head of Sales & Marketing at Richter Formteile GmbH said after the event: “In our opinion, to date there has not been such a specific trade fair which addresses our products and services precisely – especially not in our catchment area. For us it is a must-attend event in order to be present on the market. We expect to meet a customer base which is specifically looking for our services and wants to establish new contacts in the industry.”
Axel Wollermann, Key Account Manager at the foundry Heunisch GmbH, also sees the need for a trade fair with this portfolio and provides another argument for Cast Forge: “We really can't complain about the current order situation. In order for the situation to remain that way and because the processing of new orders always requires a certain start-up time, we are constantly acquiring new clients. This way we secure orders for the future.”
