Capital Market Day, which takes place every three years, focuses on new technologies, applications and manufacturing methods that are fully tailored to customers' needs. Many of these projects make an important contribution to a sustainable economy. Today, some 50 analysts and media representatives are expected at the recently opened innovation and production center in Biel/Bienne.
The largest division, GF Piping Systems, will present a unique solution for the sustainable reduction of Legionella in drinking water in public and private buildings. Thanks to easy installation and management via an intelligent control system, operators can significantly reduce energy consumption.
As part of its strategy, GF Casting Solutions is increasingly focusing on lightweight components for the aviation and energy sectors. The division will highlight its latest additive manufactured parts for lighter and more efficient aircraft engines. For the automotive sector, it will present new powertrain components, as well as structural parts made of aluminum and magnesium for electric and hybrid cars.
With several exhibits and applications, GF Machining Solutions will provide an insight into the Additive Manufacturing of complex, lighter solutions. The division will also be presenting smart manufacturing methods that, among other things, enable faster maintenance and full traceability of materials and processes, thereby increasing the customer's production efficiency.
“With the latest technologies from our three divisions, we are responding to the fast-growing needs of our customers for efficient and sustainable solutions,” says GF CEO Andreas Müller. “At this Capital Market Day, we present these innovations, which clearly offer added value to our customers and enable us to achieve the goals of our Strategy 2020.”
