June 2015: The quartet of international metallurgy trade shows in Dusseldorf also offered plenty of opportunities to make contacts and obtain information on new developments for the special cable company Alfred Michels from Mülheim. Head of Sales, Andreas Mettner (photo), used the 4-day industry expo for intensive sales meetings. “Just the right people in one location”, is how Andreas Mettner described the Dusseldorf trade fair expo.
ALMI’s comprehensive range of temperature-resistant cables with top temperature values up to +1,565°C is particularly ideal for use in the steel industry, in foundries, in smelting works and steel mills. HIGHFLAME special cables offer a much longer lifecycle than standard temperature-resistant cables. But it’s not just with cables that the company boasts high scores: with the help of ALMI protective equipment such as caps, cuffs etc., even motors and control equipment can withstand extreme conditions during production, e.g. radiation heat or flying sparks. Cables and protective equipment are complemented by a comprehensive range of thermal measuring technology. All of this makes for a total package that is hotly contested in the industry: cable quality for good operational safety, lots of innovation and almost a century of process experience are all bundled into the ALMI cable program, helping to significantly increase machinery and equipment lifecycles.
Almost half of the 2,214 exhibitors at METEC, GIFA, Thermprocess and Newcast, for example, are international companies presenting themselves on the market. A development that ALMI can understand even at the place of application for tailor-made cables. An important criterium is therefore the national and international standards based upon which ALMI cables are produced. The meetings at the trade fair provided ALMI with impetus to further develop its product program for challenging industrial processes by the next industry meet-up.
