Featured Programming by the Aluminum Association

Adding strength to the technical program for 2002,The Aluminum Association will co-sponsor the following symposium.This programming will add to an important facet of the Light Metals Program –downstream aluminum processing and applications.

Aluminum Sheet and Plate Rolling and Finishing Technology and Application Symposium

Individual sessions will cover topics such as sheet,plate and foil processing, rolling, gauges, surface inspection and finishing operations. It is anticipated that papers will be presented by speakers/companies from around the world. A program for personnel in the fields of metallurgy, engineering, maintenance, production, quality and management from end product manufacturers, as well as aluminum producers and equipment suppliers, cannot afford to miss.
