Conference objectives

ALUMINIUM and NON-FERROUS METALS 2017 allow the exchange and presentation of knowledge in solving production problems related to the processing of non-ferrous metals and their alloys, acquaint participants with the introduction of new materials and technologies, unconventional non-ferrous materials, powder metallurgy and composite materials etc.

We also bring information on the development and research, methodologies and techniques in the field of metallography and testing of materials, an overview of research and development in the area and allow presentations of companies offering devices, products and preparations related to the production and use of non-ferrous metals.

The main objectives of the conference ALUMINIUM and NON-FERROUS METALS 2017 are to provide a global overview of the current situation in the following areas:

  • • metallography and fractography, properties, testing and structural analysis of non-ferrous metals,
  • aluminium in transport - new trends, new aluminium materials and technologies,
  • melting, casting and crystallization, forming, heat treatment of non-ferrous alloys,
  • cutting and joining of materials of non-ferrous metals,
  • corrosion and surface protection by non-ferrous metals,
  • powder metallurgy of non-ferrous metals, composites, intermetallics,
  • new trends and opportunities in the use of non-ferrous metals,
  • the use of CAx technologies in the production of products of non-ferrous metals and its alloys.
