With around 72,500 visitors from 118 countries at this year's edition, "The Bright World of Metals" trade fair including GIFA & METEC is always an exciting time for Calderys to interact with customers from all over the world. Of course our in-house experts were holding meetings to talk through our ground-breaking technologies, but we found some exciting new ways to exhibit our latest refractory innovations. For example:
- Stealing the show was our Virtual Reality (VR) Experience which made it possible to visit our plant in India and discover a new CIF installation method in Sweden while being at GIFA in Germany.
- A Boron-free SILICA MIX break out piece was showcased: obtaining the same results as the regular SILICA MIX refractory for foundries, but this time boron-free for highest Health & Safety compliance. A very popular attraction!
Good news on the Calderys VR Experience:
If you weren't able to make it to GIFA it's not a problem, we are happy to share this experience with you online! You will just need to ensure you access the following VR video links using a mobile device.
