Through the years, the HTDC Conference has grown and become a key-event for scientists and researchers from the foundry field of Aluminium, Magnesium and other non-ferrous alloys as well as experts from the industry.
The HTDC Conference series has been steadily growing in quality, impact and participation in the following conferences, organised in 2004, 2006, 2008, 2012 and 2016.
The HTDC Conference is the meeting point for experts involved in the research activities and development of foundry technologies, processes or materials, as well as those employed by the foundry companies of light and non-ferrous alloys, and who are prepared to share some of their current experiences.
Today, Die Casting production is facing new challenges: from eco-sustainability and efficient energy usage to optimisation of product properties and finishing, from tailored alloys? properties to design of lightweight larger structural components. Only an "open-minded" approach, resulting in a high capability of being innovation-driven, integration-oriented and implementation-ready, will make Die Casting foundries successful in an international market dominated by strong competition.
HTDC 2020 will be held once again in Vicenza, where the 1st HTDC Conference took place in 2002.
