The new consortium NF WIRE FORUM (NON-FERROUS WIRE FORUM), consisting of your well-known suppliers AURUBIS, BALLOFFET, BECHEM, and NIEHOFF as well as the association DEUTSCHES KUPFERINSTITUT, is pleased to invite you to an online event on October 20 from 12:30 CET to 14:00 CET. This event serves as an online forerunner for a physical meeting scheduled to take place in 2021.

Over 20 years ago, BECHEM initiated and has since then regularly conducted a metal forming forum in Germany, which has brought the German-speaking non-ferrous wire industry, their suppliers, and their partners together. Utilizing this experience and broadening its reach, the five consortium partners launched the new NF WIRE FORUM last year in Germany.

In 2020, we felt a strong push to conduct the NF WIRE FORUM in English for our customers in the EMEA region at a nice spot in Europe for the first time. The coronavirus pandemic has unfortunately interfered with our plans, so we are pleased to start with an online event to interact with our customers and to provide a first glimpse at a topic that will be presented in detail at the NF WIRE FORUM follow-up meeting in 2021: it will be all about fine wire drawing and the interacting disciplines of copper wire rod, machinery, dies, and lubrication to successfully produce the thinnest wire diameters at a high process level.

Please save the date for this important online event and feel free to forward this invitation to any interested colleagues.
