GF Piping Systems presents a new, corrosion-free, pre-insulated system to transport the cooling media of air-conditioning networks as well as data centers. It can be installed in half the time required for conventional metal-based systems and increases energy efficiency by 30%.
GF Automotive is being awarded a growing number of contracts for electric vehicles, including its first major global assignment for a battery casing. GF Automotive’s expertise in lightweight construction especially comes into play in the debate surrounding the range of electrically powered vehicles. Based on various exhibits and vehicles, GF Automotive illustrates how weight can be significantly reduced by re-designing components and integrating several functions.
GF Machining Solutions shows the potential of novel laser technologies to create or enter new markets. Applications include the generation of water-repellent surfaces for the aviation industry as well as the burr-free machining of micro-surgery components.
