Trade Fair Review

Castforge 2022
Siempelkamp as trendsetter and eye-catcher

Krefeld, July 8, 2022

From June 21 to 23 it was finally time again! After Corona kept us from presenting the Siempelkamp foundry to a larger audience for a long time, we finally had the opportunity to get in direct contact with our customers, partners and all other industry enthusiasts again.

Great popularity for stand concept

“Our elegant and puristic booth designed for Digital Excellence and Mission Green was the real eye-catcher at the trade fair. My thanks to our engaged sales team for designing and implementing this booth - chapeau.”, said Dirk Howe Managing Director of SGK.

Under the general conditions with rising energy prices, supply chain bottlenecks and the geopolitical challenges, we are pleased with the reception we received with this design and integrated claims “Digital Excellence”, “Mission Green” and “Casting is our Passion”.

Enthusiasm and affirmation from customers and industry colleagues

A convincing impression was given to all interested parties by our VR glasses and our hologram projectors. We presented our state-of-the-art Smart Moulding Hub, which is still under construction, in which visitors could already freely move and look around through a three-dimensional animation.

“We generated extremely emotional enthusiasm among all visitors and appreciative recognition from all industry colleagues with our trade show appearance. Only the heat of the molten iron was still missing to make this experience seem completely real.”, adds Dirk Howe with a twinkle in his eye.

Among other things, with this expansion of our location, we are adapting our capacity and flexibility to the increased requirements of our innovative customer partners.

Interesting discussions were held over all three days, new contacts were made and existing connections were strengthened. Many international guests confirmed the huge interest in meeting us here, and confirmed that Castforge with its focused offer is exactly what the customers want.

See you again in 2024!
