The 31st International Conference on Metallurgy and Materials METAL 2022 took place in Brno on May 18 - 19, 2022. 200 participants from 20 countries listened to 77 lectures and viewed 83 posters. After a two-year break caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the conference could take place this year in the traditional format again.

The conference was opened by Professor Ping. Xiao, who holds the Rolls-Royce/Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Advanced Coating Technology. He dedicated his lecture to the topic of surface engineering and coatings for aero-engine applications. The second plenary lecture was given by Assoc. Prof. Mariola Saternus from the Silesian University of Technology in Kawovice. The lecture dealt with the synergistic effect of the optimal of AlNi addition to the zinc bath as an alternative to the baths containing Pb, Bi and Sn.

However, the thematic scope of the conference lectures was traditionally much broader. Researchers presented innovations not only in the fields of advanced iron, cast iron, steelmaking, non-ferrous metals and alloys, metal forming and surface engineering, but also in the economics and management of metallurgical production.

The program also included a commercial presentation by TestForce Ltd. which presented the steps to an optimized and automated lab.

The prize for the best poster has been awarded to Dušan Majtás from the Institute of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. In his work, he showed the corrosion of lead and copper coupons and comparison of ageing simulation and real exposure.

The next 32nd METAL conference will take place on May 16 - 19, 2023.

Abstract: The paper deals with the design of the technology for the production of the cover stamping to achieve the minimum cost of one piece of the produced component. By calculation, the minimum values of the radius of curvature of the edge of the draw die and the edge of the draw punch were determined to eliminate the calibration operation. [..] Read more

Abstract: Using the sophisticated MAXStrain II unit, part of the HDS-20 simulator, the effect of intensive cumulative hot deformation on the final structural properties of non-alloyed low carbon steel was investigated. In the case of the MAXStrain II unit, the specimens are deformed by compression in two axes, which allows to achieve large cumulative strains. [..] Read more

Abstract: The DRECE method is a very promising method for forming sheet metal sheet using the severe plastic deformations (SPD) principle. The DRECE method is characterized by the continuous extrusion of the sheet metal strip by the forming die, which creates a forming angle of 108 ° in the deformation zone. [..] Read more

Abstract: The presence of primary Nb-particles and their morphology affected by changes in nickel concentration in the as-cast microstructure of stainless steels with 18 wt% Cr were analysed. The formation of primary particles is due to the decreasing solubility during cooling and solidification of the steel melt, and additionally, segregation of alloying elements occurs during solidification, which contributes to the formation of particles.
