Deadline extension for submissions to the Aluminium Pressure Die Casting Competition 2017/2018
The submission deadline for the Aluminium Pressure Die Casting Competition 2018 has been extended to 25 October 2017. For years the competition has been a proven platform for showing off the high standard of quality in aluminium pressure die casting. The goal of the competition is to bolster interest in aluminium as a versatile working material, and to identify new areas of application.
The cast pieces submitted to the Aluminium Pressure Die Casting Competition 2018 will be evaluated according to the suitability of the construction for pressure die casting and the construction's efficient use of resources. Foundries can submit any number of die cast pieces. At the beginning of December 2017, an expert jury will evaluate the submissions and select the three best pieces. The award ceremonies for the best submissions will take place on the occasion of EUROGUSS 2018, which takes place on 16 – 18 January 2018 in Nuremberg. The winning pieces will be exhibited there and at other trade fairs.
The GDA (Gesamtverband der Aluminiumindustrie e.V.) in Düsseldorf is organising the competition. The BDG (Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießereiindustrie) is collaborating in the organisation as partner. The competition is also supported by the Austrian Economic Chamber (WKO) and the Swiss Aluminium Association (alu.ch).
