Additionally, industry experts from North America and Europe, the GK SYSTEMS group, and CYRUS will be available to answer questions and discuss projects.

This year we are particularly excited to showcase our solutions for a sustainable future of the foundry technology and discuss how our systems can help every customer take a step towards carbon neutrality.”

Our in-booth experts will represent everything from full turnkey systems and capital equipment to parts and fabrications.
