The conference was focused on recent successes and difficulties of surface treatment, finishing and coatings on Aluminum.
The conference was attended by 60 representatives of companies from Russia, Ingland, Germany, France, Canada, Italy.
Among the participants of the conference were representatives of scientific research institutes like IPCE RAS (Russia), Bauman's State University (Russia).
The following papers were considered the most interesting ones by the Conference delegates:
1.QForm VX Extrusion Application of Numerical Simulations for Aluminium Profiles Quality Forecasting - Ivan Knyazkin, ÎÎÎ QuantorForm, (Russia)
2.The Böhler-Uddeholm Company's Offer for Quality Assurance and Performance Improvement for Profile Extrusion - Anfrey Antoshin, ÎÎÎ Böhler-Uddeholm (Russia)
3.New Materials and Intelligent Design on Extrusion Tooling - Werner Hähnel, Kind & Co., Edelstahlwerk, GmbH & Co. KG (Germany)
4.Smart Container - Optimal Temperature Distribution in Extrusion Containers for a Better Service Life and Quality Improvements - Christian Eckenbach, Marx GmbH & Co.KG (Germany)
5.Container and Dummy Block Designed for Extruded Profiles of High Quality & Profitability - Nalalya Pieri, Castool Tooling Systems (Canada)
6.Temporary Corrosion Protection of Aluminium Alloys by Organic Inhibitors - Yuriy Kuznetsov, Frumkin Institute of Physical Chemistry and Electrochemistry of Russian Academy of Science (Russia)
7.Flash Anodizing Process Integrated in a Vertical Coating Line and Quality Implications for the Coated Aluminium Extrusions - Alessandro Corrà, SAT SpA (Italy)
Discussion of the Draft National standard "Terms and Definitions of aluminum profile surface defects of aluminum-magnesium-silicon systems for building structures" and RAEA General Meeting were held during the Conference.The Conference was supplemented by the exhibition where the leading foreign and Russian companies such as “SAT” (Italy), ÎÎÎ “Chemetall” (Russia), BWF (Germany), Reed Exhibition (Russia), introduced their state-of-the-art equipment, technologies for Aluminium surface quality to the Conference participants.
The increased use of aluminum in various fields requires an objective assessment of the quality. The conference discussed the state of and solutions to quality problems in relation to the aluminum profiles considering a number of factors, including technology and equipment.
The Conference was the first in the series devoted to quality issues. Therefore, it focused on the most difficult section of the profiles’s quality - surface quality of extruded profiles and finished profiles with modified coatings.
