The series of successes is showing no signs of stopping: From June 12 to 14, 270 participants and 17 exhibitors from 27 countries used the 10th International "Aluminium Brazing 2018" Congress with an Exhibition in Düsseldorf in order to exchange experience. Together with DVS Media GmbH, the German Welding Society (DVS) successfully staged this international event for the fourth time already.
The organisers and the exhibitors were pleased to establish the constantly growing number of participants in the congress. At the same time, they were also able to register an increase in guests from the Asian region, such as Korea or China.
Dr. Hans-Walter Swidersky, Mentor of Aluminium Brazing, greeted the numerous participants and Dr.-Ing. Hartmut Schmoor, Chairman of the "Brazing/Soldering" Specialist Society in DVS, delivered the welcoming address on the occasion of the opening ceremony. Subsequently, the speakers from all over the world of aluminium brazing provided information. In this respect, the selection of the lectures about the subject areas of materials, testing, applications, equipment, quality management, process control as well as research and development met with great approval amongst the listeners. "Highly interesting, relevant to practice and exciting" was the tenor.
The accompanying exhibition was also received positively and thus well-visited. Here, there were a lot of intensive expert discussions about all aspects of the subject of aluminium brazing. Because all the participants and exhibitors concentrated on "networking" this time too.
With regard to technical relevance, establishing contacts as well as framework conditions, the vast majority of the participants rated the event as good to very good. Thus, two thirds now already know that they definitely want to come again. The next Aluminium Brazing will again take place in Düsseldorf at the end of April 2020.
