Graepel-InForm was launched in 2004 in order to present the latest trends in sheet metal processing to our customers and partners. With contributions from research and science, combined with practical application, we want to support our customers in making future process decisions.
Workshops, a factory tour and an entertaining program complement the Graepel-InForm and offer many opportunities for communication.
Review of 2014:
About 100 participants were welcomed by Friedrich Graepel AG in Loeningen to the 5th edition of the technical innovation forum Graepel-InForm on 17 and 18 March 2014. The two days focused on the surfaces of sheet metal components. Aspects like coloring and corrosion protection were discussed as well as burrfree punching, plane smoothness and scratch-free forming. The second day concentrated on factory tours. The newly founded “Oberflächentechnik Löningen GmbH & Co. KG” was presented in detail before the technical possibilities of “Graepel Löningen GmbH & Co. KG” were explained.
