INCREASING TECHNOLOGICAL CONTENT
APRIL 4TH, 2019
VILLA EVELINA CONGRESS CENTRE
AZIENDA AGRICOLA GUALBERTO RICCI CURBASTRO & SONS
Event organized by GMS MILANO and A&L Alluminio e Leghe supported by METEF and CENTROAL
The participation to the congress is free and offered by GMS that will present HEH (High Efficiency Heater) a new application for extrusion billets heating induction. HEH is an innovative pre-heating system for extrusion billets. The new technique is based up the invention of INOVALAB, a spin-off of the University of Padua, a particular preheating process through rotating permanent magnets.
Aluminium extrusion is a flexible technology, open to innovation in materials, machines and processes. The quest for the utmost competitiveness demands concrete answers to the requests of the global market for state-of-the-art solutions concerning plants, machinery, production technology and the design of semis.
In order to provide adequate answers, GMS and A&L organized a Study Day regarding the extrusion of aluminium, focused on new technologies for the magnetic heating of billets.
The initiative is aimed at the main players of the production chain, extruders, plant manufacturers, designers, quality assurance managers, company technicians, end users, the academic and research world which seems to be increasingly interested in aluminium alloys, metallurgy and the relevant technologies.
The program includes the presentation of an updated picture of extrusion at a regional and global level, the analysis of recent progresses in extrusion techniques with a focus on furnaces for the magnetic pre-heating of billets and on the typical occurrences in the extrusion process connected to the new technology. The most innovative extrusion alloys on the market, from traditional ones to the main variations developed by the producers, right up to the most advanced new compositions, will also be dealt with, providing evidence of the continuous progress from a metallurgical standpoint, to obtain qualitative and quantitative improvements in productivity and optimization of the final properties of extrusions.
The theme of the extrusions market in Italy and in Europe and an accurate analysis of the state of the market updated at the date of the event will be tackled defining the technological limitations needed to direct the project towards the greatest production efficiency, limiting waste and corrections.
