Aluminium International Today Nov/Dec 2016

The most wonderful time of the year...

I’m sure I am not the only one wondering where this year has disappeared to!

While festive displays begin to fill the shops, the aluminium industry is also gearing up for the season; events season. 

You will probably be seeing a lot of me or the team over the coming months, whether we are manning an exhibition booth or quickly jotting down important points in the conference. Don’t hesitate to stop us in passing or visit the Aluminium International Today booth.

We are always happy to discuss how you could promote your company in the right way or add you to our long list of satisfied subscribers.

Back to this issue and it is also that time of the year when we publish the Furnaces Buyers’ Guide. This provides a classified listing of furnace plant equipment, materials and services. The guide also includes a selection of technical articles, which this time round, look at insulating castable refractories and drop quench furnaces.

As well as the regional market updates, the now regular ‘Products & Projects’ feature and ‘2 Minutes with...Gerd Götz’, I was also lucky enough to catch up with Sapa’s very busy CEO Egil Hogna to find out about his first year at the company.

There is also a dedicated ‘Extrusion’ feature with an article on  accurate temperature measurement and a look at ‘Health & Safety’, with a focus on the mining industry. 

Enjoy!
