Ferrous Melting Operators, Suppliers Gather for Conference

Some of the biggest advancements in ferrous melting technology and methods were the forefront of the 5th International Ferrous Melting Conference, Oct. 30-Nov. 1 in Nashville, Tennessee.

Organized by the AFS Melting Methods and Materials Division, the conference featured expert speakers from the foundry and related melting industries who focused on coreless melting, channel furnace melting and holding, pressure pouring, cupola melting, metallurgy, and charge materials. Keynotes were scheduled each day to provide insight on foundry management, human resources and training issues, governmental affairs, and future demands for castings.
