The trend away from steel to aluminium continues. Aluminium cast plates and aluminium components are becoming increasingly important as a basis for semi-finished products. There are solid arguments for both developments, not only with regard to costs. Further innovations will reinforce this trend around the world.
Companies around the world, regardless of the industry, are under enormous cost and time pressure. The preference for ever higher material requirements and more innovative material solutions, which are required by designers, users and end consumers, plays a decisive role here.
For materials, aluminium is the driving force that satisfies many of these preferences. To name just one industry, automotive today contain three times more aluminium than those built 20 years ago. The demand for aluminium is on the rise throughout the world, because there is an increasing number of areas of application in which the benefits can be maximized.
As a leading innovator in cast plate processing for many years now, we have been able to secure a significant share in this develop-ment. This makes us quite proud. Even more importantly, we can now turn our attention to the future: our innovations, which we have developed out of our practical experience with our customers, and our great efforts in research and testing have shown that the wide-spread success enjoyed by aluminium has no means come to an end. On the contrary: the market is only just beginning to take off.
