4th International Ingot Casting Rolling Forging (ICRF) Conference
21–23 June 2022 • Sheraton Pittsburgh Hotel at Station Square • Pittsburgh, Pa., USA
The purpose of ICRF 2022 is to provide a forum for presentations on metallurgical and technological developments for ingot casting and processing, with areas of interest ranging from vacuum and remelt processing, through casting and refractories, forging and rolling, to heat treating and quality evaluation. Additional topics include modeling, which has seen widespread application to all areas of development and production, as well as the rise of Digitalization/Industry 4.0, which has started to transform the industry.
