Up, up and away at the EUROGUSS 2016

Kurtz GmbH started the 2016 business year impressively at the EUROGUSS with the motto “PROefficiency. Expect more! – Get more!“. For the 11th time, the international pressure-casting branch met in Nuremberg in January in order to inform themselves about the latest technologies, processes and products and to exchange information.

The Kurtz casting machines business area was also represented in the city and presented one of the highest systems at the event with the new KPS 2000/25-12 SKT trimming press – from top to toe, the Kurtz power trimming press in the sliding tilting table version measures eight metres.

Efficient technology, impressive performance

The new Kurtz machine is even more impressive thanks to efficient technology and remarkable output data: 2,000 kN pressing force, a clamping surface which has grown to 2,500 mm x 1,800 mm, on which trimming tools weighing up to 16 t can be clamped and cast parts can be de-burred process-safely – with 40% less cycle time! With a perfectly balanced trade fair mix, the Kurtz foundry machines were presented on a 65 m² stand, which became a real magnet for the visitors in the course of time.

Europe´s most important pressure casting trade fair

With just under 600 exhibitors, more than half of them from abroad, and around 11,000 knowledgeable visitors, this year’s EUROGUSS underlines its status as Europe’s most important trade fair in the area of pressure casting. The Kurtz trade fair team with Managing Director Uwe Rothaug and Lothar Hartmann, Head of the Foundry Machines Profit Centre, was very satisfied with the three days at the fair, in which there were numerous qualified contacts with existing customers and potential new customers.


“With an enlarged clamping surface revised controls and intelligent software, our new trimming press is a genuine power-pack, ensuring maximum process efficiency and plant availability in the implementation of pressure-casting cells for process-safe production of aluminium pressure-cast parts. We successfully informed customers and also interested parties about this in a number of exciting 1:1 discussions. This will certainly result in numerous projects in the 2016 business year”, Lothar Hartmann said after the fair. Alongside the Kurtz trimming presses, the Kurtz low-pressure technology for aluminium and magnesium ingot casting and the Kurtz gravity and tilting casting machines became the focus of customer discussions – where there was consultancy on individual machines, but also on turnkey, fully automated complete solutions. Conclusion on the EUROGUSS: three good trade fair days, many qualified contacts to existing customers and potential new customers, a lot of work for the current business year!
