Other topics covered during the one-day seminar included failure analysis in sheet forming, improved steels through alloy and processing design, high pressure die-castings steels, laser welding and “green” steelmaking. This year METALEX will again be held at BITEC from 19-22nd November under the theme “The Pride of ASEAN – Shifting Metalworking Paradigm”. The trade shows will cover around 46,000 m2 of exhibition space to include all forms of metal working including foundry & die-casting, mould & die, welding and machine tools (www.metalex.co.th). Earlier in 2014 two important automotive events will also run at BITEC. The Thailand Auto-parts Fair will be held during 28th April to 1st May (www. thailandautopartsfair.com) and then Automotive Manufacturing 2014 will run from 19-22nd June (www.automanexpo. com). The latter event also incorporates specialist shows such as InterMold, Surface & Coatings and Industrial Components & Sub-contracting. The countdown to GIFA - The bright world of Metals Registration has begun for the four trade fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST which will be held in Düsseldorf, Germany from 16-20 June 2015. The target group for the 13th International Foundry Trade Fair GIFA 2015 are companies from around the world interested in foundry and melting plants, refractories technology, machines and equipment for moulding and core making, moulding sands and moulding auxiliaries, sand preparation and reclamation, gating and feeding, casting machines, knock-out, fettling, finishing, pattern and die-making, control systems and automation, environmental protection and waste removal as well as information technologies. One of the four trade fairs since 1979, METEC focusses on equipment for iron, steel and non-ferrous metal production, for casting and forming steel, for environmental protection, waste removal and gas purification, for electrical engineering and process technology, for measurement and test technology, for information technology, for metallurgical plants, rolling mills and steel mills. THERMPROCESS fair has been the place to find innovative thermo process technology since 1974. Presentation of the latest trends for solutions relating to the production and operation of industrial furnaces and heat treatment plants enables visitors to obtain information that keeps them up-to-date with industry developments. The range includes industrial furnaces, industrial heat treatment plants and thermal processes, equipment for special uses, components, equipment and other supplies, occupational safety and ergonomics. NEWCAST is the most important trade fair in the world for precision castings. bright world of Metals, Messe duesseldorf 2011 Trade Fair. The sectors covered by the castings range from car manufacturing and the aerospace industry to machine and plant manufacturing and medical engineering. The start of the countdown to The Bright World of Metals with the opening of the registration process and marks the beginning of the intensive preparatory phase for the trade fair staff in the exhibitor department. The registration process officially ends on 30 April 2014.
