Energy Symposium of Bühler Die Casting
01/06/2010 In cooperation with the local sales force, the Bühler Die Casting business unit organized a special Energy Symposium in June, which was held in the EU Congress Center in Brdo in Slovenia.
The continuing discussions about climate protection and rising energy costs gave the symposium a high significance. The papers and discussions revolved around existing possibilies to cut energy costs and how to achieve optimal casting with a reduced capacity utilization. The roughly 40 attendees (figure) were Bühler foundry customers plus foundry association members from Slovenia. Ueli Jordi, head of Consulting Services, drew the seminar participants’ attention to unnecessary cost generators and gave them a few tricks and tips for conserving energy. In group assignments, solutions were proposed for enhancing profitability. Identical seminars were later held in Harzgerode (Germany) and in Korea. The Die Casting business unit supports customers’ efforts to save energy and trim costs with its consulting and after-sales services.
