KRÄMER+GREBE was an exhibitor at the WFO Technical Forum in Portorož, Slovenia
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.
