IREFCON 2014: Indian Refractory Industry bets on innovation

Sacmi Group was present in Kolkata from 15th to 18th January.

More than 500 participants from roughly 100 local industries as well as international exhibitors and speakers: these are in short the figures of the 10th India International Refractories Congress. A really impressive attendance indeed, considering the extremely tough economic scenario of the Indian industry. But Refractory Industry in particular is everything but new to challenges and has always been able to overcome technological and economic difficulties, also thanks to its central role in the steel making process.

The mood of the four days’ gathering was perfectly summarized in the headline of the inaugural address of Dr. A.K. Chattopadhyay, Managing Director of TRL Krosaki Refractories Ltd. and long-time customer of Sacmi: “to hope when there is no hope”.

There is hope because, through process innovation, the Refractory Industry can exploit the opportunities still present and somehow missed till today: steel pro-capita consumption is still low in India and is expected to grow significantly in the next five years, the import of refractory products is still double then the exports, quality of products can be improved through introduction of worldwide recognized best practices and state of art equipment.

On this regard Sacmi Imola, along with its sister companies Laeis and Riedhammer, has been confirmed as a leading technology supplier in India. Sacmi, in fact, with 30-years’ experience in the refractory field,  hundreds of projects successfully completed all over the world and an array of equipment ranging from body preparation, to pressing, robotized automation down to firing, proposes to the industry state-of-art solutions in terms of product quality, consistency and productivity.

Dr. Chattopadhyay remarked that 2014 is the Chinese year of the horse and urged the audience that it is time now to gallop not trot.
And Sacmi is the perfect partner to ride along.
