ALUCAST Focus 2012

ALUCAST Focus is a national level conference where technical papers are presented on subjects/topics focusing on a particular selected aspect of casting manufacture. Pune Centre of the Aluminium Casters' Association hosted this year's "Focus" Conference in Radisson Hotel, Kharadi Pune on September 15 & 16, 2012. The focus was decided as "Role of Consumables in Die Casting". Based on this theme the entire conference was conducted under the chairmanship of Mr S.G. Pawar and convened by Dilip Panjikar ably supported by a team of organising committee members of Pune Centre. The occasion coincided with National Engineers' Day. The two-day program was thus dedicated to Sir Viswesvariah and Shri S.L.Kirloskar. The Association remembered the greatness of these two Sons of India.

Response from the members was overwhelming.
