High-Tech Competence in the Field of Industrial Furnaces.

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">The Thermo Processing Sector flourishes from the Close Partnership existing between Customers and Suppliers</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">From mobile telephone manufacturing and light diode production through to automobile construction – heat treatment now plays a central role in countless production processes. The innovative drive of the thermo processing sector means plants are now becoming ever better performing, ever more efficient and ever more environment-friendly. The high-tech features of industrial furnaces and the complex services offered by suppliers will be on show&nbsp; at THERMPROCESS 2007 next year from 12 to 16 June. Already for the seventh time now suppliers from throughout the world will be showcasing their broad-based industrial furnace know-how for the most varied of business sectors in the halls of Messe Düsseldorf.</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">Over 270 exhibitors from 25 countries are expected at this the sector’s most important event of the year – this time THERMPROCESS will again be appearing in its familiar trade fair quartet alongside GIFA, METEC and NEWCAST. The mood of suppliers in the run-up to this leading fair is extremely upbeat: both this and last year most firms did good business and the sector is also optimistic about 2007. One reason for the growth: thermo processing technology has become of interest for numerous new applications – partly also because it has been possible to further improve the quality of the process engineering in many plants. Working temperatures inside industrial furnaces can now be set and monitored precisely down to a few degrees Celsius thanks to use of sensitive heat sensors. Secondly, long-existing heat treatment or hardening processes are now gaining importance again thanks to new materials and new requirements.</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">Industrial furnace construction and its associated services have long since required extensive high-tech know-how – in close cooperation with customers highly specialised manufacturers produce tailor-made one-off units perfect for performing the tasks required by the customer. THERMPROCESS 2007 features the entire breadth of this varied sector – suppliers primarily serve the iron and steel industry, the automobile business, mechanical engineering, heat generation firms, the glass industry, the ceramic and cement industry as well as the chemicals and petrochemicals sector.</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">As diverse as these target sectors may be there is one thing most suppliers in the thermo processing sector have in common: these largely small and medium sized businesses have long since branched out beyond straightforward plant construction. Customers define their requirements and the plant construction firm finally comes up with possible solutions. Once delivered the supplier integrates the industrial furnace into the customer’s existing process chain, trains staff and obviously performs maintenance on the plant. Modern industrial furnaces are today perfectly integrated into the operator’s production chain thereby reducing hardening distortion to a minimum. Even the inclusion of robots and storage systems runs smoothly – thermo processing has considerably contributed to increasing performance and flexibility in industrial production processes.</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">Care is also taken to integrate the unit into the customer’s IT systems: innovative quality assurance systems document heating process data and feed them into the company’s data processing systems. The energy efficiency of modern thermo processes is also impressive. For decades now companies have successfully worked towards curbing the energy consumption of industrial furnaces even more – and increasing energy prices are keeping this topic firmly on the agenda.&nbsp; Over the past few years a series of energy-reducing processes have been perfected that were previously not feasible in commercial terms. The increase in energy prices is now heralding a new trend here.&nbsp;</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">At THERMPROCESS 2007 the efficient use of energy will be just one core topic – the fair will present the sector’s full potential across the board. And this is a claim the THERMPROCESS SYMPOSIUM also aims to fulfil. The Symposium will be held in a separate section of the exhibition hall giving visitors the opportunity to easily fit relevant events into their visit to the fair. The programme runs from Wednesday 13 June 2007 to Friday, 15 June 2007 each day from 10.00 am to 4.00 pm – attendance is free to all visitors to THERMPROCESS, GIFA, METEC and NEWCAST.</font>

<font face="Arial,sans-serif" size="2">The importance those in research and development attach to the industrial furnace sector is also documented by another event: the Special Show of the members and research institutes of the industrial furnace research group “Forschungsgemeinschaft Industrieofenbau e.V.” (FOGI) is on display in the joint research hall of all four fairs. This area is sure to generate avid interest – because, like in other fields, in thermo processing gaining international competitive edge also hinges on the successful implementation of innovations.</font>
