31.08.2017 - 5th International Sales Meeting on PVD Coating Materials
The International Sales Meeting on PVD Coating Materials
hosted by GfE’s business unit Coating Materials has now been held for the fifth time. An international round-table of external guests and GfE distribution partners met for the occasion in Dresden in August. Over four days of information sharing, workshops and discussions, the latest developments and experiences about the PVD coating industry
were shared. Particularly in an increasingly digitalised world, personal meetings and direct exchange have proven to be indispensable for operating successfully together across the markets.
We warmly thank all external and internal participants who attended this successful event. The next one is already in planning.
01.07.2017 - Research Project: Strips Made from Special Materials for Application in the High-tech Sector
Special semi-finished products have become increasingly significant in the rapidly developing technology sectors of electronics and medical technology over the last few years. Alongside a wide range of technical challenges, these include improving the superconductivity of foils and strips for nuclear spin topographers, as well as the manufacture of extremely thin-walled titanium cases for pacemaker casings.
Whatever the application, the demands on structure, which can only be adjusted by special forming steps, play a significant role in all application areas for special semi-finished products, whereby surface quality and dimensional accuracy are required.
The research project has succeeded in reproducibly produce a large number of special materials with high material and design requirements, including those made from titanium, niobium, tantalum and nickel and their alloys. These results are primarily attributable to the last and decisive processing step: cold rolling. The further development of existing plant technology was an important prerequisite for this.
On June 30, 2017, the project “Strips Made from Special Materials for Application in the High-tech Sector” was successfully completed. The findings that have resulted from this have allowed GfE Fremat GmbH to expand its portfolio in semi-finished products manufacturing significantly.Project number: 100189149
Project dates: 1/7/2014 to 30/6/2017
This project was funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) and the Free State of Saxony.
05.05.2017 - Inauguration of the New Production Hall for the Production of Titanium Aluminides
AMG TITANIUM ALLOYS & COATINGS – GfE Gesellschaft für Elektrometallurgie GmbH – officially inaugurated its second production hall for the production of titanium aluminides
in April 2017. The whole of the GfE workforce as well as all participating trades were invited to the inauguration ceremony in the new hall at Höfener Straße.
The new production hall is a further important investment in the future of GfE and in the Nuremberg location. Just as the first production hall, newly erected on the GfE premises in 2015, the second hall covers approx. 1,100 square meters. Using state-of-the-art melting and casting plants, semi-finished products are being cast for turbine blades for modern aircraft engines. Made of titanium aluminide, a material considerably lighter than the one previously used, GfE products make a considerable contribution to fuel savings and, thus, to reducing CO2 emissions.
Up to 30 new jobs are created as a result of expanding our production capacities in the two new production halls.
04.04.2017 - Research Project OptiPerm: Optimized Coatings for Permeation Barriers on Functional Films
Polymer films are needed in many industries: beneficial are their low weight, an efficient industrial manufacturing process and the fact that they can be easily processed using a roll-to-roll production method. The properties of the polymer foil are adjustable with surface coatings to the respective applications. Different technologies are used in combination to achieve the desired needs. From a technological and applicative perspective, so far their interplay was only roughly taken into account.
GfE is examining with further partners in the research project OptiPerm the interaction of such surface coatings. The aim is to optimize permeation barrier layer systems for functional films consisting of electron-beam crosslinked lacquer layers combined with layers applied using physical vapor deposition (PVD)
Within this project GfE develops sputter targets with special compositions as material source for the permeation barrier layer with the desired properties.The project is funded by “Europäischer Fonds für regionale Entwicklung” (EFRE) and the Free State of Saxony.
Project funding reference number: 100237958/3160
Project duration: 15.09.2015 - 14.09.2018
04.10.2016 - Successful Participation of GfE at glasstec 2016
As a long-time exhibitor at glasstec, GfE took part in the world's leading exhibition for the glass industry in Düsseldorf also in 2016. An active stream of visitors was registered at GfE's booth over the four days of the trade fair, who were informed about the various opportunities of our PVD coating materials
Characterised by a very positive mood and an industry that is taking an optimistic view of the future, once again promising contacts were established and constructive discussions took place.
Thanks a lot to all our visitors for an interesting event - we are already looking forward to welcome you again at our glasstec booth in 2018. ORG
25.01.2016 - Certification according to DIN EN ISO 50001 (Energy management)
In December 2015, GfE received the DIN EN ISO 50001 certification for the energy management system at its sites in Nuremberg and Freiberg
As an internationally recognized standard, ISO 50001 defines the requirements for establishing a systematic and structured energy management system.
Certified companies work to continually improve their energy-related performance – by increasing their energy efficiency and reducing the environmental impact of their energy usage.
17.12.2015 - Donation to Médecins Sans Frontières
In accordance with the key message of Christmas, GfE supports the humanitarian organization Médecins Sans Frontières with a generous donation
this year to help people in need.
Since 1971 Médecins Sans Frontières has been delivering medical emergency aid to people all over the world affected by armed conflicts, epidemics and natural disasters. The international organization offers immediate, efficient, unbureaucratic and impartial assistance to those in need.
It’s a particular concern of GfE and its employees to support this engagement besides various additional social projects.
03.10.2015 - Intermetallics 2015 - Intermetallics Award
Alloys based on intermetallic phases offer promising prospects—both with regard to the steadily growing demand for new materials with improved properties and as structural and functional materials.
Intermetallics is the only scientific conference that covers the entire range of intermetallic structural materials. Other important topics, next to the pivotal focus of titanium aluminides, were NiTi shape memory alloys, ultra-high-temperature materials on the basis of silicides as well as iron aluminides. This year's event at Kloster Banz, a Baroque monastery, was attended by approximately 130 scientists, engineers and managers from 15 countries.On the occasion of the international Intermetallics Conference, the Intermetallics Award is presented to an individual with outstanding merits in the field of intermetallic structural materials. This year, the prize was awarded to Dr. Volker Güther.
The picture shows the Head of the Scientific Organisation Committee, Professor Dr. Martin Hellmaier (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology), presenting the award to Dr. Volker Güther.
Intermetallics Conference will probably take place at Kloster Banz in 2019. Dr. Volker Güther is himself a member of the programme committee. ORG
