2017 Research Review

Reminder to make your plans to attend the annual SFSA Research Review June 13-15. We will cover steel casting R&D on Tuesday and Wednesday, and we’ll discuss and develop plans for our DID program on design/manufacturability/reliability Thursday morning. The Review covers the latest steel casting research, and is your opportunity to interact with the researchers and provide industry steering. The event features both Carbon & Low Alloy and High Alloy topics; it is the R&D featured at the National T&O. There is no cast to attend the meeting (travel, hotel, meals, etc. are the attendees’ responsibility). For questions or to RSVP (include if you will join any dinners), please contact David Poweleit at poweleit@sfsa.org.
