At its 6th Capital Markets Day held today in Schaffhausen (Switzerland), GF is offering a deep dive into its most promising innovations across its three divisions, driven by the latest sustainability and digitalization trends.

Capital Markets Day, which takes place every three years, focuses on new technologies, applications and manufacturing methods that address customers' needs and bring them sustainability benefits, in line with GF's Strategy 2025. Highlights include new solutions for efficient water treatment, the latest developments for sustainable mobility as well as machines and components for intelligent manufacturing.

GF Piping Systems will present solutions to mitigate global water loss, at a time where water scarcity is rapidly becoming prevalent in many world regions. In particular, the division will among other focus on its technological contribution to a new Water-as-a-Service business model, which enables access to alternative water sources for sustainable, high-quality purification of any process water.

GF Casting Solutions is focusing on sustainable mobility, especially with lightweight castings for electric vehicles, which are a prerequisite to reach zero emission targets. Its showcase will highlight Big Castings, the latest trend in producing body and structure components to further support the transformation in the automotive business.

GF Machining Solutions will provide insights into precision machinery and digital manufacturing, presenting its latest innovations for the factory of the future, in which the highest accuracy, low energy consumption and automation will be key for efficient manufacturing processes.

“As part of its Strategy 2025, GF has increased its innovation efforts to address customer needs for sustainable solutions, in line with the most important trends of our times", says GF CEO Andreas Müller. “Some of these projects discussed today in our Capital Markets Day are important elements for the further positive development of GF."
