GF Casting Solutions is focusing on sustainable mobility, especially with lightweight castings for electric vehicles, which are a prerequisite to reach zero emission targets. Its showcase will highlight Big Castings, the latest trend in producing body and structure components to further support the transformation in the automotive business.

GF Machining Solutions will provide insights into precision machinery and digital manufacturing, presenting its latest innovations for the factory of the future, in which the highest accuracy, low energy consumption and automation will be key for efficient manufacturing processes.
