1. International Conference in Krefeld / Germany
Two days in November 2012 for the new interdisciplinary industry gathering in Krefeld.
Whether automotive, shipbuilding, wind power or nuclear technology – cast iron cannot be unthought from our daily routine any longer.
Near-net-shape and economic solutions require innovative answers in design and material.
This is the new forum for foundries, constructing engineers and users
Sponsored by ASK Chemicals and Siempelkamp Giesserei, the organizers presented an exciting lecture programme with accompanying
informative exhibition, an attractive evening event, a visit in Siempelkamp Foundry and the opportunity for interexchange with colleagues.
The next CastTec will be held in 2014.
