WMM 2018


The series of International Conferences, Magnetism and Metallurgy was established in 2004 by the Institute of Metal Forming at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. The conferences 2006, 2008, 2010, and 2012 took place in Freiberg, respectively Ghent. The following conferences took place in Cardiff, 2014 and Rome, 2016. The 8th International Conference Magnetism and Metallurgy WMM’18 will take place from June 12th to 14th, 2018 in Dresden, Germany at Hotel Art (art´otel). It will be organized by Acatrain e.V. and the Institute of Metal Forming at the Technische Universität Bergakademie Freiberg. The WMM18 will be supported by UK Magnetic Society.
Traditional the aim of this series of International Conferences on Magnetism and Metallurgy is to bring together scientists from universities and research groups working on the development of magnetic materials, experts from the producer of magnetic materials as well as electrical engineers from universities and industry, who are engaged in applications of magnetic materials. The WMM18 will be again a forum for the exchange of ideas on the status and further trends between experts from the industry and research institutes.
The organizers of the WMM’18 hope that the 8th International Conference WMM’18 in Dresden, June 2018 will cover like the previous conferences the latest developments and demonstrate the progress in the field of Magnetism and Magnetic Materials and their Application. The program will comprise invited papers and posters. All the contributions will be published in a conference proceeding. All the participants will receive the proceedings at the conference.
All detailed information you will find in the pdf files below.

Topics of the WMM’18

  • Advances in process techniques: metallurgical routes,
  • Progresses in electrical steel grades and other soft magnetic materials as well as hard magnetic materials,
  • Status of application of thin strip technology for nonoriented electrical steels,
  • Tendencies at the fabrication of grain oriented electrical steels,
  • Present status of application of electrical steels for cars and trucks
  • Alternative materials for electrical steels and their application,
  • Progress in modelling the evolution of microstructure and texture along the metallurgical processing route for electrical steels
  • Improved material characterization and progress on modelling the effects of magnetic materials in electrical machines
  • Optimum selection of electrical steels for given applications.
