With more than 100 participants the TEAM DAY 2015 was a high-profile industry event of scientists and users from the technical ceramics field, it was very well attended and a great success. TEAM BY SACMI, consisting of ALPHA Ceramics, LAEIS, RIEDHAMMER, SAMA, GAIOTTO and SACMI Imola, had organized the event for the third time following on from 2008 and 2012.This took place as usual the day before the CERAMITEC in Munich at the Paulaner am Nockherberg. Customers from the technical ceramics and advanced materials branch were invited to TEAM DAY 2015 to discuss in the context of user- meetings their own discipline and moreover to talk about trends, applications and new technologies. The international platform offered by TEAM was also heavily used for Networking:

Chairman Jon Binner (University of Birmingham, UK) directed, professionally and confidently, with British humor throughout the lectures and also presented in addition new technologies for the production of technical ceramics. Chuck Compson (Almatis Inc.; USA) reported on the effect of ppm-impurities on the sintering process and the grain growth of special- reactive-alumina-powders. Stephan Blöß (Heubach GmbH, D) gave an overview about the world of pigments and then explained the peculiarities of fired pigments. Johannes Homa (Lithoz GmbH, A) informed about the latest state of technology in the lithography-based production of dense ceramic components. Frank Sommer (FerroTec GmbH, D) illustrated the possibilities in terms of design, achievable physical properties and Rapid Manufacturing of Fineceramics and Machinable Ceramics. Toralf Rensch (Ibu-Tec advanced materials AG, D) reported on unusual process applications of rotary kilns, especially when used as a chemical reactor. Giuseppe Marletta (Rotfil S.r.l, I) presented the development of highly-sintered electric heating plates for household use and the related challenges in gaining approval in accordance with the guidelines of the EU. Arjen Steiner (Schaumglas Global, D) explained in his presentation the process technology in the production of foam glass from recycled glass waste, and their use as high quality insulation and construction material.

The event organizers received a very positive feedback from the participants, which was confirmed by the fact that during the TEAM DAY 2015 lectures for the TEAM DAY 2018 were registered by customers. The final, dinner at Paulaner in Munich offered the guests and speakers the opportunity to end the day with interesting conversation.
