46. Aachener Foundry Colloquium

Save the Date: Web-Conference “The Virtual Foundry” in connection with the Aachen Foundry Colloquium 17. to 19.03.2021

Over the last 40 years, the virtualization of casting processes has become a success factor for the foundry industry. Today, software comprehensively predicts the process flow for the production of castings in a virtual environment in many areas of the foundry. Whether for identifying optimization potentials, designing entire process chains or setting up an efficient product design – simulation programs support foundrymen and their customers every day to make important decisions with a high degree of certainty.

However, the variety and complexity of physics, materials, metallurgy and processes in the foundry still offer new challenges 40 years after the first applications of simulation programs. Therefore, the event is held under the slogan:

The virtual foundry – status and future developments

The international conference within the 46th Aachen Foundry Colloquium will take place digitally due to the current corona situation and will give an overview of the current state and variety of simulation applications for the foundry industry.

Leading experts from industry and science from all over the world have already agreed to give overview presentations.

The focus of the conference is on the current and future requirements for simulation tools from the perspective of the foundry industry and its customers. The colloquium is therefore aimed at foundry engineers, casting buyers, designers and all those in positions of responsibility who, as beneficiaries of simulation results or as decision-makers for their company, would like to gain a concentrated overview of the latest state of the art and the possibilities of simulation and optimization in the foundry in three days. This concerns all relevant casting processes and casting materials, the product development of complex castings as well as the linking of different process steps along the entire process chain.

We look forward to welcoming you from 17 to 19 March 2021 for exciting presentations and interactive exchange.
