The current situation on the market as well as the forecasts for 2016 concerning the demand for industrial metals and the development of the overall world economy require an adjustment of the metal premiums.
For deliveries as of 1 January 2016, we will therefore change the premiums as follows:
Copper - 18 US dollars per ton Nickel unchanged Tin unchanged Zinc unchanged Lead + 10 US dollars per ton Aluminum - 125 US dollars per ton
The Wieland Group will continue to guarantee the physical supplies of metals with long-term contracts.

2.5 million euro investment: Wieland-Werke AG develops an energy-efficient casting line – funded by the Free State of Bavaria
Lost-foam casting enables more efficient production of complex copper components.
How can complex-shaped copper components be manufactured economically and energy-efficiently? And how can energy be saved along the entire process chain and particularly during casting? These questions are addressed by Wieland with the EnerGuss project. Based on lost-foam casting, Wieland, as a manufacturer of copper semi-finished products located at Vöhringen/Bavaria, has commissioned a new research facility in order to produce test components and small-series quantities.
Blechexpo 2015 - International trade fair for sheet metal working
From 3 to 6 November 2015, Blechexpo together with the partner trade fair Schweisstec will take place at the Stuttgart Exhibition Centre. Approx. 1200 exhibitors from 36 countries will present the possibilities of sheet, tube and section processing, including thermal and mechanical joining technology.
Visit the Wieland stand No. 7416 in hall 7 and learn more about the capability of copper and copper-alloy strip.
In addition to high-performance alloys and plated surfaces for the electrical and automotive industries, Wieland will present a comprehensive range of rolled products in suitable alloys, surfaces and delivery formats.
New heat exchanger technology for air-cooled liquefied natural gas facilities (LNG): DIESTA
GEA Batignolles Technologies Thermiques, Wieland Thermal Solutions, and Technip have developed a new technology to boost efficiency for air-cooled liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities: DIESTA, short for “dual internally and externally structured tube for air-coolers,” typically allows to increase the LNG production by 2 to 3 %, the reduction of footprint by up to 20 % and the reduction of CO2 emissions.
The consortium has chosen the World Gas Conference from June 2 to 5, 2015 in Paris to formally launch its new technology. A presentation will take place during the Gas Processing Interactive Session on June 4, and specialists from these three companies will be available at their respective booths (J36B for GEA BTT and I18 for Technip) to welcome and inform LNG specialists about their innovation.
