On behalf of the SFSA National Technical & Operating Conference committee, I am pleased to announce the 2019 T&O program (please find links below to 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. 2019 marks the 73rd 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 feature two fundamental pouring & gating presentations by University of Iowa and University of Northern Iowa; one on filling effects based on rigging changes, and one on applying naturally pressurized gating practices.  In addition, University of Alabama at Birmingham will provide a hands-on casting analysis activity that will help foundries perform their own lab assessment, and Tom Stevens will review the fundamentals of understanding manganese steel. The conference includes sessions related to Next Generation Manufacturing, pouring & gating, and lessons learned in ceramic sand, and many more papers covering everything from melting to foundry engineering to molding to finishing to management to EHS to quality to technical & featured research. 

Please start making your plans to attend the T&O on December 11-14, 2019 at the Loews Hotel in Chicago.
