Absolvententreffen 2017

An annual fixed point in the pre-Christmas period - graduate meeting 2017

Thuesday, 23th November: like every year, on the day before the traditional “Ledersprung”, the annual graduate meeting took place. At the premises of the Montanuniversität Leoben and organised by the Alumni Club Leoben there was the chance to meet with former fellow students and colleagues but also to make new contacts in a pleasant ambience.

The excellent organisation made this event to a successful and joyful evening, that’s why more than 250 guest participated, amongst them many of professors and graduates with matriculation numbers from 1948 to 2012.

We would like to thank the organising committee for this wonderful tradition and are looking forward to participating next year.

ILTEC license contract signing

SMS group receives exclusive license for ILTEC Technology.

Together creating new pathways 

In summer this year, Mettop and SMS group agreed to jointly market the water-free cooling technology ILTEC, also integrating the product in the joint-venture company PolyMet Solutions. The picture shows the contracting parties (from left to right): Dr. Guido Kleinschmidt (SMS group), Dr. Andreas Filzwieser (Mettop GmbH) und Dr. Rolf Degel (SMS group).

Since the technology has great potential not only in the non-ferrous industry but also in the entire range of iron and steel production, ILTEC perfectly fits the product portfolio of the SMS group. This was a major reason for SMS group to invest and - together with Mettop - to create new pathways towards new and revolutionary cooling solutions for our customers.

“We all are convinced that together we can make the metals producing industry more safe " was the unanimous comment of all participating parties.
