Practical Steelmaking and Casting
October 16 - October 17
Manufacturing process in steel industry undergoing changes for making steel better and better in terms of quality, cost & efficiency. Advance melting techniques like Ladle Metallurgy play an important role in this direction. The focus is to get steel of higher strength/weight ratio along with longer life. This has enabled designer to make product with less section thickness for higher efficiency and less environmental pollution. This workshop has been designed to give insight of various steel making and casting processes from industry point of view. It covers evolution of various steel making processes, their operation and limitation and latest development on making clean steel through various secondary refining treatments. Continuous casting process is covered for making bloom and billet which are used in rolling mills for long and flat products. Steel Casting plays an important role and cast products are integral part in all industries. Manufacturing of steel castings, particularly resin bonded sand casting process is covered to get insight of casting processes. For better understanding of steelmaking and casting process, some important fundamental metallurgical concepts are also covered along with examples.
