Calderys at GIFA 2011 – July 19, 2011

Visitor records for the launch of the QD (Quick Dry) Technology


The trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST 2011 posted new records with 79,000 visitors from 83 countries compared to 77,000 visitors for their last edition in 2007. The Calderys booth itself welcomed 25% more visitors than in 2007 with more than half of the visitors coming from abroad.

"GIFA is a unique tradeshow for Foundry manufacturers and engineering companies worldwide. It is an excellent opportunity to meet with our customers, distributors and agents. We also succeeded in making new contacts, welcoming a particularly high number of experts from India, Taiwan, China, and South East Asia to our stand”, says Dr.-Ing. Dirk Holland, Technical Director at Calderys.


A global get-together of the metallurgy sectors in 2011, GIFA has proven once again to be an efficient platform for innovation. Current trends were discussed at a very high level and Calderys revolutionary QD (Quick Dry) technology was very well received with 1,400 QD brochures distributed on the booth in three days! A press breakfast organized on the Calderys booth on June 29 in collaboration with Georg Fischer Singen Melting Shop Manager M. Robert Greibig was attended by high profile magazines and the GIFA messedaily newspaper published a focus article on QD the following day, with more articles to come in the following weeks.
