Best in class performance at GIFA 2019

Kurtz Foundry Machines stand out in Düsseldorf

After months of preparation, the Kurtz Foundry Machines made a phenomenal appearance in the Rhine metropolis: with two impressive machine exhibits, a top presentation of reference parts and a new IIoT solution in the stand’s centre, Kurtz took part in the 14th edition of the world’s leading foundry trade fair.

Under the motto SOLUTIONS FOR THE BEST – BEST IN CLASS PERFORMANCE BY KURTZ, the trade visitors could expect more – and that for many good reasons. GIFA has always been a trade fair for the foundry industry with focus on process technologies. It is not surprising that the Kurtz Foundry Machines came up with one of their most innovative models for the low-pressure casting process. Although not connected, The visitors were amazed by the extremely powerful hydraulics and the high clamping force of 54 t with a simultaneous high opening force of 100 t. Thanks to an inviting stand construction concept with a spacious balcony, the Kurtz AL 28-18-18 FSC could also be assessed from the first floor. The machine impressed the trade visitor with features such as a quick-change and quick clamping system for permanent moulds and a new vacuum system for venting and core gas extraction.

Extremely fast and unbelievable quiet

The second highlight of the Kurtz stand was Kurtz´s fast, quiet giant: a new trimming press with sliding-tilting table. The Kurtz KPS 3000/25-12 SKT – under positive pressure and power – impressed the trade visitors with its high speed, which results in a remarkable 20% reduction in cycle time, and with its extremely reduced noise level. Press and machine noise is reduced to below 72/75 dB(A). After five excellently mastered days at the fair, the press did embark on its journey to its new owner.

With an international sales team consisting of employees from the headquarters in Kreuzwertheim and China as well as sales representatives from North America, Spain and Turkey, GIFA could only be successful. The numerous reference parts, which were suspended and generously illuminated in a frame, were an excellent way of getting discussions started. The parts were used to explain and discuss the needs of the international customers. The stand team has been particularly pleased by the visit of a delegation from Asia, who visited Kurtz as part of the VDMA tour. Lothar Hartmann, General Manager Business Unit Foundry Machines, was extremely satisfied with Kurtz´s appearance at the trade fair: “Our technologies are the right ones for current and new applications such as engine blocks, chassis and structural parts in lightweight construction and for e-mobility. Numerous discussions with customers operating worldwide proved it. GIFA, the most important trade fair for Kurtz Foundry Machines, confirms that we are undoubtedly on the right track. We are proud of our products, our customers and our team.”
