ICRF 2012 - Major interest in the new ingot casting conference
The Steel Institute VDEh invites you to the 1st International Conference on Ingot Casting, Forging and Rolling 2012 (ICRF 2012)
In its 12 sessions the conference will examine the central themes of ingot casting, rolling and forging technology. The focus will especially be on technological innovations, metallurgical procedures, new measurement techniques, additives and refractories as well as measures to improve product quality. The great interest in developments in such remelting processes as electro-slag remelting (ESR/DESU), vacuum arc furnaces and vacuum induction furnaces is noteworthy since they make up a special emphasis with approximately 20% of the registered papers. Another special focus of the conference will be laid on process simulation.
Clarifying trends and requirements
Ingot casting and its products are important vehicles for technological progress. They account for a share of 8% of global steel production. Preferentially this concerns with specialty steels for the innovative sectors of power engineering, the aerospace, shipbuilding and automobile industries, the oil and gas industry, tool manufacture and machinery construction, as well as medical engineering. The 1st International Conference on Ingot Casting, Rolling and Forging brings steel producers, forming technology specialists and research institutions together with the steel users. Technological trends and requirements will become visible.
The direct exchange of ideas among participants takes place not only in the presentation program, but also especially in the accompanying exhibition. In addition to Firma Dobos as Gold Sponsor and ALD Vacuum Technologies as Silver Sponsor, many more suppliers from the ingot casting, forging and rolling mill industry will be represented as exhibitors and sponsors.
