Wagstaff Participates in Metef and Aluminium 2000

Wagstaff exhibited at Metef 2017, the event that succeeds at bringing aluminum industry professionals together from Europe and around the world in Verona, Italy.  The 4-day event in June was the center of the Italian foundry and casting sectors of the aluminum industry, and was accompanied by the concurrent conference, Aluminium 2000, for the first time. 

Aluminium 2000 is a technical conference that has become a critical component to aluminum producers in the region and around the world that included full breadth of content for all perspectives of the aluminum value chain.  Topics in extrusion, metallurgy, recycling, logistics, and foundry made up a full schedule that did not disappoint delegates from commercial to manufacturing technology viewpoints. Adam Anderson, Research Metallugist for Wagstaff, Inc., presented the in-depth overview of Wagstaff's billet casting offerings in his paper, "The Latest in Direct Chill Capabilities from Wagstaff". 

Metef captured impressions of the biennial event from Wagstaff Area Manager, Dr. Manfred Lück:
