This first training course or meeting of "Hot Rolling of Long Products" has contributed many things, in different areas, both the attendees, with whom we have exchanged many interesting views, as well as ourselves, to improve and focus the content of the future 2018 call, since it is our intention to hold this meeting annually. There were representatives or members of the main steel groups, and a certain foreign representation, European and Asian, which fills us with satisfaction.
In this first edition have been exposed the metallurgical technical bases, the forming in rolling and roll pass design, and the aspects to obtain good productivities and efficiencies, as well as a brief exposure of the market. These are very broad to deal with in great detail and two intense days, but they serve as a technical basis and starting point. In the future we hope to address more detailed and specific issues of each product, and types of mills, boxes, temperatures, grades, etc.
This type of meeting, in addition to the contents themselves, is interesting for the exchange of opinions and views among professionals in the sector, in a professional and relaxed environment, away from the usual daily activity that provides and tries to facilitate a few hours to gain perspective and be able to contemplate and analyze aspects of rolling, from a certain distance from the daily pressure of the mill.
We thank those institutions, companies and individuals who have facilitated the access and use of their material, and that remains in the knowledge of the attendees, and we take the opportunity to communicate to suppliers, engineers, researchers, and anyone in the sector, who from now on we have the possibility of collaborating in next year's edition, to analyze presentations that are of interest to the sector, that we will study with pleasure.
Although not all attendees could stay till the end, we took good pictures for our memories
We enjoyed good facilities
