The AIKW is a registered professional organization for roll pass designers and rolling mill engineers with a main emphasis in the field of hot rolled long products. The aim of the Association is to maintain and to deepen the members' skills acquired during theit basic training and subsequent practical work and to promote the exchange of experience between members.
In this respect, regular scientific conferences with presentations on specific topical subjects and plant visits make an important contribution. International speakers are invited to these conferences to give presentations on specific subjects of rolling mill technology and adjacent areas of production engineering, plant engineering and organization.
In addition to members, any interested individual working in the steel industry or in the field of mechanical engineering, plant engineering or in the supplying industry, as well as university and polytechnic students and students from technical and master craftspeople schools may participate in the conferences and visits offered.
The Association is a non-profit organisation and does not pursue own financial interests.
Only natural persons working as roll pass designers, engineers, technicians or masters in rolling mills or adjacent fields, regardless of their nationality or affiliation to parties or other associations, may become members of the AIKW. For detailed information please refer to our statutes, which are available for download.
