CAEF — The European Foundry Association
Umbrella organisation of the European foundry industry, established in 1953. CAEF deals with economic, technical, legal, and social issues. Its membership includes the national foundry associations from 22 European countries.
During a two-day workshop finalising the questionnaire for data collection in the context of the revision of the Best Available Techniques (BREF document) for foundries and smitheries, CAEF´s focus was to provide technical input as well as to avoid unnecessary enhancement of the survey.
The EUROGUSS 2020 trade fair from 14–16 January 2020 in Nuremberg, Germany, was very successful. Every two years the fair offers a platform to discuss trends as well as perspectives for the international light metal, die-casting and gravity die-casting industry. Most of the CAEF foundry member associations had a booth or visited the trade fair and took the opportunity for in-person meetings.
