European Die Casting Award 2022

New award for European die castings: For the first time, the German Die Casting Association (Verband Deutscher Druckgießereien e.V. - VDD) and the trade fair EUROGUSS organize the European Die Casting Competition. The competition is also supported by the Federal Association of the German Foundry Industry e.V. (Bundesverband der Deutschen Gießerei-Industrie e.V. - BDG), the General Association of the Aluminum Industry (Gesamtverband der Aluminiumindustrie e.V. - GDA) and the European Magnesium Research Association e.V. (Europäischen Forschungsgemeinschaft Magnesium e.V. - EFM). This competition is intended to demonstrate to the public and customers in particular the diversity of applications, the innovative strength, the high level of quality and the performance of the die-casting process in the materials aluminium, magnesium and zinc.

The competition entries will be assessed individually in the materials and evaluated in terms of innovation, quality, cost-effectiveness, resource-efficient design and level of difficulty. Subsequently, the three best parts for each material will be awarded.

Nearly 30 die casting products reached the VDD office in Düsseldorf by September 30th, 2021. In the following week, the competent jury from research and practice reviewed the submission. From December 2021 the ten winners (one place was awarded twice due to a points tie) will be presented here on our website . However, it remains a secret which place from one to three the winners actually won in their respective categories.
