CEMAFON Welcomes Delegates at the World Foundry Congress in Chennai, India


At the opening of the 68th World Foundry Congress on 7th February in Chennai, India, Dr. Habig, Secretary General of CEMAFON, gave a welcome speech to the 1600 delegates of the congress. The World Congress coincides with the 56th Congress of the Institute of Indian Foundrymen which was held together with IFEX, the 4th International Exhibition on Foundry Technology Equipment and Supplies.
In his speech Dr. Habig underlined the importance of sharing information and knowledge on technical as well as market development in order to drive the casting process ahead and to contribute to making markets and the industry more sound and liable. In this context, the World Foundry Congress of WFO and the International Foundry Forum of CEMAFON and CAEF complement each other in an excellent way. With this spirit in mind, CEMAFON would appreciate a closer cooperation between both organisations.

At the WFO Technical Forum energy efficiency was the key topic, an issue that is on the agenda of CEMAFON as well.

At IFEX about 210 exhibitors from 14 countries on a net exhibition space of 7200 sqm presented their products and services. About 50 of the exhibitors were from European Origin. The exhibition has been visited by about 10.000 visitors, 2.000 of them registered for the World Foundry Congress.

The majority of the exhibitors where quite happy with the results of the exhibition particularly as India has ambitions targets to increase the casting output and sees the necessity to increase liability, productivity and quality through investing in modern foundry technologies.
