The 13
World Conference on Investment Casting (WCIC) will be the first conference held in
Asian district to be hosted by Japan Foundry Society Inc. (JFS) and also to be co-hosted by
three organizations, European Investment Casters` Federation Society (EICF), Cast Metals
Federation (cmf), and Investment Casting Institute (ICI) on Sunday !5
through Wednesday
in April, 20!2.
The WCICs from !

WCIC in Poland, and will be served and held by JFS with a subject.
We hope that this conference will be useful for many participants who are investment casters,
suppliers, end users all over the world having concern on the investment casting technology
and business. And it is scheduled to lectures, technical information exchange, and plant tours.
The main theme of this conference is that the change as a concept of ¨Revolution from Asia¨ is
shown. Then a lot of related societies and organizations in Japan including the Ministry of
Economy-Trade-and-Industry, Japanese Engineering Society, the Materials Process Technology
Center and others are backed up. In addition, ¨The Global Investment Casting Exhibition¨ will
be held in ANNEX HALL in parallel to the !3

2. Outline of the!3
a) Concept
¨InnovnfIon from AsIn¨
Now, Asia that had come to produce about 60 percent of the world production of investment
castings came to form the third pole of the world with North America and Europe.
So, it is a big meaning for investment castings industry in Japan and an Asian region to
hold the first World Conference on Investment Casting (WCIC) in Japan that is the country
of information center of the investment casting industry in Asia, and to show the progress
and revolution of the Asian investment casting technology in the world.
