The NF WIRE Forum is a unique professional event for the non-ferrous wire industry that offers a wide range of specialist information about the processing of wire

The NF Wire Forum is a consortium of 5 partners – Aurubis, Balloffet, Bechem, Niehoff and the Kupferverband – who all supply the NF wire processing industry and maintain close contacts and exchange with their customers. The consortium sees itself as a platform for all questions and requirements along the NF wire value chain for various applications such as e-mobility, renewable energies and others.

The event in Antwerp will be combined with a visit to the Aurubis plant in Olen on the first day with a limited number of visitors. After a joint evening event, the next day’s forum will address sustainability with extremely interesting speakers from business, associations and the NF Wire Forum.

Please find the agenda below.

The following link will guide you to the registration page. For organizational reasons we kindly ask you to register latest June 19th, 2023.
Please note that the conference language will be English, and that the event will only take place if the minimum number of registrations is received.

We are already looking forward to your participation in the NF Wire Forum and the plant tour at Aurubis Olen. Please feel free to forward this invitation to colleagues who might also be interested in attending.
