Global players, specialists and young innovative companies will be showing the material’s range of products and services and the whole spectrum of the industry - from aluminium production to machinery and plant for processing and the end products to recycling. Above all, however, the fair and its exhibitors will make visible the enormous added value of aluminium in the most important applications - in car manufacturing, the transport sector, the building and construction sector, mechanical engineering or the packaging industry. Other topics will include the networking of machines and the potential of 3-D printing from aluminium.
