“The Bright World of Metals” will be taking place in Düsseldorf again from 25 to 29. June 2019


GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST are separate trade fairs that stand in each case for themselves and their markets, but only present a complete picture of the “Bright World of Metals” together. The range presented at GIFA covers the entire market for foundry plants and equipment, die-casting machines and melting operations. The major plant manufacturers are a key feature of METEC. Exhibitors there are in particular suppliers of plant and equipment for iron making, steel making and non-ferrous metal production and for casting and pouring molten steel as well as rolling and steel mills. Industrial furnaces, industrial heat treatment plants and thermal processes are the main emphases of the exhibits at THERMPROCESS. NEWCAST concentrates on the presentation of castings
