Due to the current situation regarding the corona virus, the Aachen Foundry Institute and AGIFA decided to postpone the colloquium “The virtual foundry – status and future developments” by 1 year.

The new date is on March 18th and 19th, 2021.

The Virtual Foundry – Status and Future Developments

The international conference as part of the 46th Aachen Foundry Colloquium will include presentations in both in German and English with simultaneous translation. They will provide an overview of the current state-of-the-art and variety of simulation applications for the foundry industry. Leading experts from industry, software providers and academia from all over the world have already confirmed their participation for the invited keynote talks.

The presenters come from companies such as Nemak, Ford, Martinrea Honsel, Liebherr, Flow Science, ESI, MAGMA, RWP, and research institutions such as TU Braunschweig, The University of Iowa, Jönköping University, ACCESS and the Foundry Institute of RWTH Aachen University, as well as guest speaker Prof. emer. Wilfried Kurz.

The focus of the conference is on the current and future demands on simulation tools from the point of view of the foundry industry and its customers. The event is therefore aimed at foundry engineers, casting buyers, designers and all those who, as beneficiaries of simulation results or as decision-makers for their company, would like to gain a concentrated overview of the latest status and the possibilities of simulation and optimisation in the foundry in two days. The conference will cover all relevant casting processes and cast materials, product development of complex cast components, as well as the linking of different process steps along the entire process sequence of casting production.
