ECCC 2020

10th European Conference on Continuous Casting

Bari - Italy 17/06/2020

The 10th European Continuous Casting Conference – ECCC 2020 – will be organised by AIM, the Italian Association for Metallurgy, in Bari (Italy) on 17-19 June 2020 with focus on the status and future developments in the casting of steel.

The ECCC is a unique forum for the European continuous casting community to exchange views on the status and the future development of the continuous casting process. The Conference program is abreast of the latest developments in control and automation, advanced continuous casting technologies, application of electromagnetic technologies and mechanical devices to improve the core microstructure, the lubrication issues for improving the surface qualities. Steel metallurgical issues will be addressed as well as their physical and numerical simulation. The exchange of experience in operational practice, maintenance and first results from the recently commissioned plants will integrate the program. The Conference aims at promoting the dialogue among the delegates with industrial and academic background and among the participants in former Conferences and new members of the continuous casting community.

• Trends of innovation in casting technologies

• New developments and advanced technologies for the casting of slabs, blooms and billets

• Ladle and tundish recent metallurgical solutions for steel cleanness
• Flow control, refractories and clogging
• Mold lubrication and heat transfer
• Product quality control: Surface quality and internal soundness
• Numerical simulation and modelling (solidification, metallurgy, fluid flow, validation)

• Safety and environmental aspects

• Continuous casting technologies and circular economy

• Operational practice and maintenance
• Measurement, automation and process control

• Post-processing of semi-finished products (Scarfing, machining and heat treatment)

• Modernization and new implementations

• Industry 4.0, machine learning and digitalisation
