Cast Source & B2B Meet

The Institute of Indian Foundrymen (llF) is organizing 67th Indian Foundry Congress concurrently with Foundry exhibition IFEX 2019 (largest of its kind in India) at India Expo Centre, Greater Noida, Delhi NCR in India. Please visit which is being periodically updated for details.

During the Indian Foundry Congress, besides several other important events, we will also organize Cast Source Meet which is equally important to producers and users of castings. Cast Source Meet is one of the star attractions forcasting producers and users alike as it provides a unique platform for extremely useful interaction and to understand and address issues of the casting producers and users. The event is of special interest to casting producers as they get exposure to new markets and challenges and to explore and prepare themselves for new markets and their needs.

IIF is inviting speakers from India and overseas to the Cast Source Meet from across various sectors using metal castings viz, auto sector, power, machinery manufacturers, railways, pumps, compressors, valves etc. to interact with casting producers (Foundry units) in India.

This will provide unique forum for the casting producers and users to understand various issues of common interests. It will provide casting producers to understand how to overcome the projected gaps from the users point of view and to meet the future demanding requirements of castings. This forum will also give direction to foundries for where to invest and create resources to meet the new challenges and demands of the market.

There will be two sessions during 18th & 19th January, 2019 (Total 15 speakers). Each speaker will be allotted 30 minutes (5 minutes for company introduction; 20 minutes for main presentation and 5 minutes for Question Answers) and will be expected to cover the following points:

  • Forecasts for the castings requirements for their sector
  • The future challenges and requirements for cast components for their sector
  • Their experience in out sourcing from different countries as importer of castings, if, any and present barriers in outsourcing from India, if, any
