When Saveway President Dr. Manfred Hopf invites you to a conference, you can expect a very interesting program and to meet a whole lot of experts.

The moderator, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Egbert Baake, began by welcoming renowned speakers and gave participants a clear picture of the current state of the industry. Heiko Lickfett (BDG) reported positive tendencies in German cast iron in 2017, and Prof. Dr.-Ing. Gotthard Wolf (TU Freiberg) promoted participation in the Materials Competition and reported excellent future prospects for highly motivated students and doctoral students in the field of iron casting.

As a supplier for measuring technology, Saveway is very close to the field, so the main part of the two-day event focused on the practitioners, who presented the necessities and trends for the delivery of ovens in melting plants in various case studies.

„Go and See,“ is what President of Sachsen Guss and Franken Guss, Josef Ramthun, names his credo. The director of the melting plant is also tasked with looking inside and under its melting devices. Ramthun, a passionate specialist, knows what he is talking about when he says, „The safety of production in the melting process is vital.“ He therefore advocates the safety of metrology, through the product of companies like Saveway, before an oven burns through.
