With her contribution "The Proof" Mifa wins the Materialica Design + Technology Award. Materialica is one of the world’s largest trade fairs for lightweight design for new mobility.
Every ounce counts!
Approximately 1 on 15 people in Europe need mobility tools to help them move around. The weight and convenience of these tools play a crucial role in their daily basic activities. The breakthrough in magnesium technology leads to a new generation of lightweight mobility products that are more comfortable and reduced in weight at least 35%. This also provides short-term possibilities for sport bikes, cars, aircraft and portable electronics.
Magnesium has the future
Magnesium is a very light material with good material properties for construction. Mifa joined forces with three other companies and tackeled the three major challenges for magnesium construction – corrosion, fire risks and distortion. Together they developed and produced a magnesium wheelchair - 35% lighter than a traditional aluminium wheelchair - for gold medalist wheelchair tennis Sharon Walraven, called “The Proof". This season Sharon Walraven already reached several finals - and even won a few- with this wheelchair.

8th November 2013, Mifa organizes the second Mifa Masterclass about aluminium precision extrusion in their new premises in Venlo. During this Masterclass we will discuss how to use the capabilities of precision extrusion with a group of engineers:
• dimensional tolerances from 0.02 mm;
• design freedom;
• extrusion as an alternative to other technologies.
On several leading international fairs Mifa will be presenting itself with its precision aluminum products. We would be delighted to welcome you at the Mifa stand and let you experience our aluminum products. Our experts with knowledge of extrusion and aluminum in general will be at your disposal.
June 8, the official opening took place of the beautiful renovated building of Mifa Aluminium. Together with its sister company AHC Benelux, Mifa opened the doors for all employees and their families.
All guests were personally guided by (one of) the employees of Mifa Aluminium or AHC Benelux and received information about the machines, processes and precision extrusion. Especially the impressive fleet of machinery, including Hermle machines, the KTM cell, and the robots of the department saw and brush, received considerable interest. Visitors also showed great interest for the heat- and treatment of profiles at AHC Benelux.
Mifa and AHC Benelux are proud that employees and their families attended the open day so massively. View a short impression of this successful day!
