The world is entering its third year in which COVID-19 is eating up most of our all-interpersonal social contacts, like a black hole eats up matter. Like many other events scheduled for the beginning of 2022, an important event for the steel industry got postponed as well: the 70th Indian Foundry Congress, IFEX, and Cast India Expo, being organized at Helipad Ground Exhibition Center, Gandhinagar, Gujarat, India has been shifted from February to the 17th to 19th of April, 2022.
As winter draws to a close, and the Omicron variant appears to accelerate the transition from pandemic to endemic, the new IFEX date shines as a light of liberation on the event horizon of the COVID black hole. With India being the world's number two in total crude steel production for 2021 , and its promising motto "Business Beyond Boundaries", it is time to ring the bell for IFEX 2022 early.
High-quality steel is a driver of innovation and an indispensable material for numerous sectors. One key success factor for any metal manufacturer and foundry is a complete elemental analysis. Bruker AXS is committed to supporting the metals industry by supplying state-of-the-art analyzers, like spark Optical Emission Spectrometers (OES), combustion/fusion analyzers for special elements, and full line of X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) spectrometers.
Excellent support for the Indian metals industry and foundrymen for OES is ensured by our partner, Dynamic Technology Systems Pvt Ltd. (DTS), which will be introduced in the next issue. Be part of the liberation and visit the DTS booth at IFEX 2022 (hall 1, booth 32) and get to know the latest addition to Bruker's OES product line, the Q4 POLO, a true analytical giant in its first appearance at an event in India.
