This year’s WFO Technical Forum, held from 18 to 20 September 2019 in Portorož, Slovenia, saw KRÄMER+GREBE participate in the event as an exhibitor for the first time. With more than 400 participants from 27 countries, the Forum achieved a record number and provided an international platform for the company to present its work and its latest technology, as well as network with new and existing contacts.
On the last day of the event, the speaker from KRÄMER+GREBE, Jan Titze, gave a talk with the title “With sensors and actuators to autonomous foundry tools”. He explored casting process optimisation in detail through tooling with additional sensor technology and an integrated data management system, as well as greater casting process control flexibility using actuator technology. Finally, the talk included a brief look at the possibilities for individual and optimised production of cast parts in the future if these two areas of potential, sensor technology and actuator technology in the tool, are combined.
After five eventful trade fair days, GIFA came to a successful conclusion on Saturday 29th June.
A team of experts from KRÄMER+GREBE was also present at the event and was able to hold many interesting discussions and make new contacts.
At the Laempe Mössner Sinto GmbH stand, the K+G team discussed, for example, the advantages of its patented core drying technology using a core box equipped with the technology with trade fair visitors who were interested in finding out about this.
In addition, two speakers from KRÄMER+GREBE gave a presentation on state-of-the-art methods for 3D measurement technology in product development during a break-out session hosted by GOM.
KRÄMER+GREBE would like to thank all its customers and visitors for their interest and the great discussions. We would also like to express our thanks to the team at Laempe Mössner Sinto GmbH for providing active support at the stand and GOM for the cooperation on the topic of process optimisation.
The quality of a cast product is significantly influenced by the corresponding injection moulding tools and core boxes. Due to the direct connection to the subsequent product, an optimal tool design is an essential factor in determining later success. Therefore, state-of-the-art simulation applications and 3D measurement technologies are used nowadays to aid in the engineering and manufacture of tools.
Especially in the development of cast products, it is not uncommon for the tool to be a critical factor when it comes to keeping the time to market as short as possible. At GIFA 2019, KRÄMER+GREBE will be presenting the latest methods for developing and manufacturing tools. The latest CAx tools, analysis methods, manufacturing technologies and digital technologies are used in everything from product idea development to optimisation loops to maintenance and lifetime extension.
Inform yourself at the GIFA on this interesting topic during a previous lecture of our specialists during the break-out session of the company GOM on the 26th and 27th of June – 14 p.m. in Hall 10, room 10.1 A.
During the trade fair, we will also be delighted if you would take the opportunity to visit our company premises in Biedenkopf-Wallau. Arrange an appointment today and come have a look at our revolutionary new development as well as our comprehensive service portfolio.
