European Continuous Casting Conference
07. bis 11. October 2024
European Continuous Casting Conference

The European Continuous Casting Conference has become an established event in the conferences of the iron and steel producing industry. First held in Florence in 1991, it is still held regularly every 3 or 4 years. In 1994 in Düsseldorf, 1998 in Madrid, 2002 Birmingham, 2005 Nice, 2008 Riccione, 2011 again Düsseldorf, 2014 in Graz, 2017 in Vienna and for the last time 2021 in Bari, Italy. The upcoming 11th European Continuous Casting Conference from 7 to 11 October 2024 in Essen will be organized by the Steel Institute VDEh.

Regardless of the production route and resources, more than 95% of the crude steel melted is currently continuously cast. The metal solidifies in the form of slabs, blooms or billets. During casting, the quality of the later product is determined, the product properties and the surface appearance are determined.

The ECCC will cover the main topics of continuous casting. This conference is the forum of the European continuous casting community. Experts meet here to exchange views on the status and future development of the continuous casting process. The conference program provides information on the latest developments in control and automation, advanced continuous casting technologies and continuous improvement of product quality. Steel metallurgical issues will be addressed as well as their physical and numerical simulation. Presentations on newest developments also in operating practice and maintenance will complement the program. The conference aims to promote the technical and scientific dialogue between delegates with industrial and academic backgrounds, as well as between participants of previous conferences and new members of the continuous casting community.

Key Topics: Plant Operational Practices, Results and Maintenance | Plant construction and Design, new CC Plants | Metallurgy and Flow Control in Tundish | Fluid Flow in the Mould, Lubrication and Solidification | Product Quality Control and Detection of Surface Defects | Electromagnetic Stirring in the Mould and in the partly solidified strand | Soft Reduction | Cooling Technologies | Near net Shape Casting | Controlling Systems / Modelling and Simulation / Industry 4.0

Materials and components on the test bench: Testing technology - determination of characteristic values - damage prevention
42nd lecture and discussion conference

With the hydrogen-based transformation of the steel industry towards CO2-neutral processes, the time has come for materials testing - namely in the upcoming comprehensive investigations of the existing natural gas infrastructure for the conversion to hydrogen transportation. The steel pipelines installed in the gas network are basically suitable. However, the interfaces in particular need to be tested: Valves, flanges, compressors, fittings, weld seams. With over 400 distribution network operators, this is an enormous challenge that brings materials testing into the public eye. We should seize the opportunity - especially when it comes to recruiting skilled workers and young talent! This challenge, which also offers opportunities, will of course be the topic of our "Materials Testing 2024 Conference".

In addition, we will once again cover the tried-and-tested topics of fracture mechanics, wear, fatigue and damage analysis, characteristic value determination, standardization and quality assurance, as well as the various measurement and testing techniques. Exciting fields are currently opening up in the field of technology, which should also not be missed at the conference: AI-supported testing methods and testing techniques on a microstructure scale.

With this combination of proven and new topics, inspiring plenary and evening lectures, the Galileo Award for Materials and Components on the Test Bench: Testing Technology - Characteristic Value Determination - Damage Prevention, 42nd Lecture and Discussion Conference and the accompanying trade exhibition and poster show, we will put together a conference program that will certainly not disappoint visitors. Join us and become part of this program with your presentation!


2025

SCT 2025 - International Conference on Steels in Cars and Trucks
SCT 2025 - International Conference on Steels in Cars and Trucks

Save the Date: 7th SCT 2025!
 

SCT 2025 - the most important international Conference on Steels in Cars and Trucks takes place June 2025!

More than 500 participants from all over the world will come to join more than 160 presentations from industry and research.

‘Bringing the automotive, supplier and steel industries together’ is one of the two goals behind SCT 2025. This motto reinforces what the modern steel industry is all about: partnerships across value chains being made up of industry, research and development professionals.

The second motto of SCT 2025 is: ‘Future trends in steel development, processing technologies and applications’. The ability to steadily innovate one of the traditional and most innovative materials for industrial use is reflected in the increasing amount of steel being consumed across the world. Steel delivers a lot of solutions for solving such future global challenges as living and mobility in megacities or the preservation of material resources due to steel’s excellent possibilities for recycling.

More Details will be avaiable soon.
