Moulding Machines enjoy success with customer workshops in Mexico

Kurtz Ersa has been well-known for many years as a provider of complete foundry systems in Mexico, which is an important market for moulding machines due to the high density of automotive manufacturers there. In order to build on its presence in Mexico and pass on its international experience, gained from numerous projects with partners including FAT, Loramendi, StrikoWestofen and Mössner, to customers and other interested parties, in May the Moulding Machines division held two-day workshops in Querétaro und Monterrey. Aimed primarily at participants from the automotive industry, the workshops also attracted numerous Mexico-based motor firms and their suppliers, with employees from management, research and development, planning and purchasing. The focus of both events was on customer-specific solutions for turnkey projects in the manufacture of gearboxes and parts for the structure and drive systems.


Perfectly prepared for the future

Many participants attended specifically for the opportunity, on the second day of the workshop, to benefit from intensive instruction on efficiency increases in the process of casting more complex parts. “Mexico has a very well-developed foundry industry and is one of the most important markets for Kurtz foundry machinery. The low-pressure die casting process, in particular in combination with sand cores, is becoming ever more important for the manufacture of chassis and engine blocks. The main focus of the workshops was on the question of how the manufacture of chassis parts would look in future, and how Kurtz as a general contractor could give its customers the best possible support and equip them for the future. The workshop clearly had the desired effect, as reflected in specific enquiries for new projects,” said Lothar Hartmann, Profit Center Manager for Foundry Machinery at Kurtz GmbH.
