On behalf of the SFSA National Technical & Operating Conference committee, I am pleased to announce the 2018 T&O program (please find attached PDFs for the workshop and conference). Supported by the steel foundry members that make up the Steel Founders’ Society of America, the T&O conference is the premiere steel casting event in the world. 2018 marks the 72nd conference, which will continue the legacy of technical and operating topics of today that will provide value to the industry for many years to come. This year’s workshop will be “Learn from the Legends”; discover tricks of the trade from numerous honorary members of the society. These steel casting subject matter experts (SMEs) will share their experience on topics including quenching, foundry management, casting failure analysis, high strength steel, modulus, and monel. The conference includes a session focused on silica sand, and many more papers covering everything from melting to foundry engineering to molding to finishing to management to quality to technical & featured research. 

Please start making your plans to attend the T&O on December 5-8, 2018 at the Loews Hotel in Chicago.
