Ladies and Gentlemen, Dear Readers!
With undisguised satisfaction, we present to you another issue of the Foundry Review, created during the pandemic.
Issue 5–6/2021 was prepared with the intention of replacing what would normally have happened at that time if the pandemic had not limited us. After all, May – June is usually the time of international trade fairs as well as numerous conferences and foundry meetings.
The main element of this issue is the Catalog of Polish Foundries and Suppliers for Foundry Industry – edition 2021, containing a total of over 700 positions, including 374 foundries and over 300 companies supplying materials as well as machinery and equipment for the foundry industry. The catalog unveils the potential of the foundry industry, helping to connect with new customers, but above all promoting Polish enterprises on foreign markets.
In addition to the catalog, we publish many interesting articles in the field of digitization, automation, production and technology, as well as management. Among these articles, we especially recommend:
On the pages of this issue we also publish the history of Odlewnia Zawiercie SA, which this year celebrates its very honorable Jubilee – the Company’s 135th anniversary. Congratulations!
Traditionally, in the issue you will find current information about the activities of the Association, domestic and foreign industry information and a calendar of the most important foundry events.
We have started preparations for the upcoming ITM Industry Europe Fair, where, traditionally, the Polish Foundrymen’s Association is organizing a joint exhibition stand – Foundry Theme Park. We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the Association’s offer, which you will find on our website. We also encourage you to publish advertising information in the next issue of the Review, which is going to be dedicated to this event.
Dear Readers, once again we would like to invite you to read the content of the issue, hoping that in the near future we will be able to meet at scientific and technical conferences and industry events.
Tadeusz Franaszek – Editor-in-Chief
