Global Casting Magazine - November 2021 Issue
 

All over the world, companies are busy with the year-end rally, a year that does not meet expectations everywhere and sometimes only partially.

Disrupted supply chains, chip and raw material shortages and many other inconsistencies have plagued our foundry industry.

Nevertheless, the industry is strong and resilient and the order books are well filled.

So, the signs for 2022 are quite good and, if we remove Covid and the other obstacles worldwide, it could be really positive.

Always optimistic and on the side of foundries and suppliers!

Congratulation on the 10th Anniversary of Global Casting Magazine

Hello, readers of the Global Casting Magazine (GCM). The first issue of 2021 is published. This year marks the 10th anniversary of GCM. As the world’s only Chinese-English bilingual journal dedicated to the foundry industry, it has gone through 10 years, and it will continue to grow with the time. Through the cooperation and continuous innovation by China Foundry Association, American Foundry Society and Foundry Planet, GCM has provided the latest and excellent news to the global foundrymen, and is serving the sustainable development of the global foundry industry.

In this year, three publishers will jointly hold a series of activities to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the magazine with dear readers and friends, to retrospect and look into the future! In the past 2020, the sudden Covid-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the lives and production activities of people all over the world, and it has also had a huge impact on the global foundry industry. However, it has been proved that our foundry industry is an industry with strong resilience. At present, the global foundry industry is recovering and stabilizing; moreover, with the test of the pandemic, more and more companies are paying more attention to transformation and upgrading, environmental protection and sustainable development, providing a guarantee for the safety and stability of the industrial chain and supply chain of the manufacturing industry.

As one of the vanes of the global foundry industry, the 19th China International Foundry Expo (METAL CHINA) and the 15th China International Die Casting Industry Exhibition (DIECASTING CHINA) will be held at the National Exhibition and Convention Center (Shanghai) from May 26 to 28, 2021, which will display the latest development, show the resilience of the global foundry industry and explore the development direction of the foundry industry in the post-pandemic era.

Global Casting Magazine - December 2020 Issue
 

Looking forward to a better 2021 for the foundry industry

2020 is an unusual year as the COVID-19 pandemic is spreading around the world; even now there is no sign of alleviation. Normal work and life has been influenced significantly so that the established plans have been forced to be postponed or canceled.

The development of foundry industry is also affected, and the industrial chain and supply chain are also in uncertainty.

Now, it is time to think about how the global foundry industry will develop in the post-pandemic era. Whether you accept it or not, the pandemic has profoundly changed the way people socialize. In the case of restricted international travel, virtual negotiations and exhibitions have become the main ways to promote international communications.

As a Chinese-English bilingual e-magazine with worldwide readers, Global Casting Magazine is undoubtedly the best carrier for global foundrymen to understand industry trends and grasp development opportunities.

At the end of 2020, all of us are expecting a better new year. I wish the foundry industry will develop healthier and sustainable methods, and wish all our foundrymen keep safe, healthy and happy! ■

It‘s good that 2020 is coming to an end, and that relief is emerging on the horizon. Alongside COVID-19 and other upheavals and crises in the industry, this was anything but a normal financial year.

The foundry industry, always an early indicator of the overall economic development, has not been spared and it is painful that we have to do without a traditional trade fair event like the Ankiros in Istanbul.

Nevertheless, production continues worldwide and most companies are holding on.

Global Casting Magazine - March 2020 Issue


If COVID-19 were a new alloy, a new molding system, or an ingenious measuring technology, we would enthusiastically accept the topic and discuss the possible applications in practice.

When COVID-19 started on its gruesome path, first in Wuhan and then in the rest of the world, we felt that COVID-19, also called the coronavirus, is an “enemy” that attacks our people, our societies, industry, and economy. 

Nobody is immune and the antidote is still a long time coming. In the meantime, politics drive public life and with it also our foundry industry, its suppliers and most of the cast buyers markets to zero. It’s a nightmare with science fiction quality that also bind us together, the consequences affect us all!

Now that production is shut down and many people are now working from home and only able to accomplish the most necessary tasks, we are given time that we might otherwise not have used. 
It is the time to think ahead to prepare for what comes after COVID, in life and also in our industry. Politics provides enormous financial support worldwide. This capital has to be used in a targeted manner, for example in new technology, processes, and digitalization. 

While the first signs of a return to normal life are already visible in China, the rest of the world is still fighting bravely and decisively, because there is life after COVID and the joy that we can meet and exchange personally again. In the meantime, we provide you with the most important information from the world of metal casting in the media at all levels. ■

Stay healthy and hopeful!

EUROGUSS 2020
 

A Euroguss year has the great advantage that it shows the trend for the light metal, die-casting and gravity die casting industry in January and still opens up options throughout the year.

EUROGUSS 2020 is the right choice for the top representatives of industry and participants from the entire value chain!

In Nuremberg, exhibitors and visitors meet in an environment conducive to development, where they can face the ambitious challenges brought on by the winds of change, and present their own skills and strengths. „If you don‘t want to change anything, you will lose everything“ (Gustav Heinemann) Yes, there are likely to be some changes in the casting industry, regardless of whether we like e EU‘s “Green Deal” or any of the other current developments.

Our industry seems to be well advised to face the changing challenges with intelligence, experience, courage and foresight. New mobility concepts, open technology drives, communication technology, artificial intelligence, medical technology, aerospace and environmental technology – they will continue to offer a wide range of opportunities for light metal casting in addition to automotive production.

The fact that the industry is capable of this and has a significant share in the implementation of highly complex products in networked processes, is demonstrated by the development of the giant die casting cells for structural castings or the increasing use of additive manufacturing. The foundry industry and its suppliers will accept changes and at the same time may request the support of politicians, OEMs, associations and unions.

Foundrypeople, show your competence, creativity and competitiveness. European process technology, engineering skills, experience and training are still world leaders.

EUROGUSS 2020 is the start of the new 20s, and we are happy to be your media companion - good luck and good luck!
