Early Registration Discount deadline: 21 August 2017
Vacuumschmelze GmbH & Co KG are pleased to host the UK Magnetics Society in a two day event in Hanau, near Frankfurt, covering magnetic materials, their applications and related technologies.
VAC last hosted this event in 2012, and as promised then, has invited us back this year. As a long term member and supporter of the UK Magnetics Society, they are delighted to present a programme promoting new materials, products and research from across Europe.
The seminar will look at new products for a variety of markets and will include papers on new Permanent Magnets, new Soft Magnetic Alloys, cut core technology for Power Electronics, Magnetic Refrigeration, commercial recycling of rare earth magnets and a look at alternative elements, amongst others. There will be a selection of speakers from academia and industry to talk about their experiences and preferences for different machine topologies to cope with the ever increasing power demands as greater electrification spreads to more and more diverse market sectors.
There will be excellent opportunities to network with other seminar delegates built into the daily programme, as well as during two informal dinners. VAC will also be providing a factory tour of its manufacturing facility in Hanau at the end of the event, which last time included a general description of PM production from raw materials to finished magnets.
This seminar has a limited number of spaces, so we would highly recommend you register early to avoid being disappointed.
