Would you like to:

  • Learn how to further reduce variations and improve the consistency and quality of the iron you melt?
  • Gain a more in-depth knowledge and understanding of all things cupola?

Then join us for this two-day seminar with leading experts in the field who will teach you well beyond the basics of your cupola operation.
