Green Makes Business Sense


An interactive meet between Industry leaders from both Buyers' and sellers' side is planned. This will give an opportunity to understand each other with regard to Buyers' requirements & expectations and have an open discussion on the challenges currently faced by the sellers in meeting the requirements.



For the first time in the history of the IFC, two separate competitions viz. All India Cast Quiz and Kaizen competitions are being organised. This will inspire Foundrymen to actualise their potential and will also nurture creativity and originality among foundry professionals.

Each IIF region will conduct Kaizen and Cast Quiz competitions in their respective regions and nominate the teams to compete in the National finals. The Winning team and Runners up team will be judged by a distinguished expert jury.

Pattimandram, a Tamil word meaning "debate", would also be a first time feature in this IFC. Two teams shall debate on a given foundry topic. Each team shall speak either 'for' or 'against' the topic. After a lively debate, the moderator shall finally put forth his point of view before declaring the name of the winning team.


In line with our theme of Paradigm Shift, IFC 2020 aims to connect international companies to showcase their products and services to the developing market. This Technical symposium will provide wide opportunities to International and Indian enterprises to showcase their distinctive products and explore the current requirements of the Indian market.

Foundry equipment manufacturers and suppliers will make presentations, on topics related to digitalisation, automation and artificial intelligence.
