Metal Casting Technologies : September 2008
EVENTS will enrich Metalriciclo, the only exhibition that is exclusively dedicated to technologies for the recovery and recycling of ferrous and non ferrous metals. This edition, which will start with the central topic of metal recovery and recycling, shall be a showcase for sustainable metallurgy. Thanks to its high level of specialisation, Metalricilo is known as the event of reference for the scrap recovery and recycling chain and benefits from the support and collaboration of the main institutions and associations that work in the industry, which consider it to be a preferred exposition opportunity and meeting point. The 2007 edition finished with 148 exhibitors on 3,650 square meters and more than 4000 specialised visitors.

Responding to the latest developments in the market and the requests of many exhibitors for a more frequent show, the next NEWCAST has now been scheduled. New features at NEWCAST include the NEWPART Innovation Park for forged and sintered parts and the Metals Plaza, a forum for the raw material and metal trade. Other new areas will be logistics and prefabrication which have moved from METEC to NEWCAST. Also, a range of new casting methods will be shown, using permanent and sand moulds. The popular and informative program of additional events will take the form of the 4th NEWCAST Forum, with seminars and conferences supplementing the show itself. Web: www.newcast.de LMT2009 – The Fourth International Light Metals Technology Conference When: 28 June – 1 July 2009 Where: Q1 Resort and Spa, Gold Coast – Queensland, Australia The Brisbane-based CAST Cooperative Research Centre is organising the Fourth International Light Metals Technology conference. The conference focus is on leading edge technologies that are being developed by researchers in cooperation with industry partners. The conference will feature invited presentations from high profile industry representatives and international researchers in the field. We expect approximately 150 delegates at the conference, which will be accompanied by the publication of all invited papers in the form of a professional, hard-cover, peer-reviewed conference proceedings. The conference provides an opportunity for researchers and industry to learn of new developments in light metals technology and to facilitate collaboration between domestic and international specialists in the field. It is a great opportunity for those involved in the light metals industry in Australia to learn about the latest developments in light metals research conducted worldwide. Web: www.lightmetals.org The 69th World Foundry Congress (WFC2010) When: October 2010 Where: Hangzhou, China With the trust and support by WFO and its members, Foundry Institution of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (FICMES) will be the host of the 69th World Foundry Congress (WFC2010). The theme chosen for the Congress is Green Foundry. The reason behind this choice is that our world is facing the pressures of energy, resources and environment. Therefore, how to explore new casting technologies and methods for energy conservation and environmental protection is, indeed, a crucial problem that needs to be solved for the sake of harmonious and sustainable development between human society and the nature. The 69th World Foundry Congress (WFC2010) is sponsored by World FoundyMen Organization(WFO), Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society(CMES) and Foundry Institution of Chinese Mechanical Engineering Society (FICMES). Web: www.wfc2010.com GIFA – The Bright World of Metals When: 28 June – 2 July 2011 Where: Exhibition Halls at Messe Düsseldorf – Germany The four international technology fairs GIFA (International Foundry Trade Fair), METEC (International Metallurgical Technology Trade Fair), THERMPROCESS (International Trade Fair for Thermo Process Technology) and NEWCAST (International Castings Trade Fair) will once again present themselves on a joint platform. Building on the previous event’s successful duration in June 2007 where over 1,700 exhibitors presented the latest developments from the areas of foundry technology, castings, metallurgy and thermo-process technology. Over 77,000 trade visitors from all over the world had travelled to the event and seized the unique opportunity to obtain comprehensive information. The result: satisfied exhibitors, impressed visitors, a business-like mood in the exhibition halls and good post-fair business. An additional visitor attraction was the top-ranking support programme, which was held in parallel with the four technology fairs and offered a mix of international congresses, symposia and seminars. Once again in 2011, concurrently with the four technology fairs GIFA, METEC, THERMPROCESS and NEWCAST, there will be a similar, comprehensive support programme with numerous congresses, trade symposia, seminars, conferences, special shows and technology forums.
