Januar, 25<sup>st</sup> –Excursion to voestalpine Stahl GmbH in Linz





On January 25th a group of 35 students of the metallurgy, materials engineering and mechanical engineering department visited the voestalpine Stahl GmbH in Linz. The program started with a warm welcome by DI Christian Fischer, head of the technical marketing, with an interesting overview of the various fields of competences and new products of voestalpine. The mid morning tour consisted of a visit of the steel mill including BOF, secondary metallurgy and continuous casting machines, followed by a delightful lunch in the cafeteria. At the afternoon session the group visited the heavy plate rolling mill in action. The rest of the day was dedicated to research and development in the field of materials engineering. The students visited the processing- as well as the development-center steel with a small-scale rolling mill. We also received an insight into forming and joining technology. One highlight was certainly the crash-test for automotive parts were the importance and evolution of high strength steels can practically be understood. Special thanks to DI Christian Fischer and all his colleagues for making this day in Linz so attractive and interesting for all participants!
