Curso de Laminación 2019 - Hot Rolling Course 2019


This is the third edition of this course that tries to offer training and new technical and market points of view to professionals in the steel sector especially. In these three years we have learned that training is not only of interest for new professionals, but that it is mostly of the interest of senior professionals, who find an opportunity to acquire new points of view on technical issues and new methods and ideas on how to analyze their particular case

The course is structured in four parts,

Market vision

It consists of an initial presentation on how we see the sector from ATEC+ID, in terms of growth and other relevant factors.


An exhibition of the characteristics and decisive steps of the rolling process is made, widely considered (including continuous casting), to assess the influence of different aspects, and qualities of steel to be obtained.

Roll Pass Design

This section is very important and we take care of it, since it is the content that can allow to roll new products by shape and quality, together with certain metallurgical aspects. In rolling, nothing is separated watertight, passes and metallurgy are important for obtaining different qualities.

Aplicación de ATEC+ID's Roll Pass Design and Management Application


This year we introduce as a novelty, the application of theoretical principles to reality, we will describe and show what the ATEC+ID design system is, at a detailed level.

Productivity and Efficiency

At this section we make a revision of all the steps from rolling to final product condition, making enphasis at the steps and bottle necks at the finishing mill in order to get a maximum productivity and efficiency, and in terms of quality.

Cours: Bonnes pratiques de distribution des médicaments (GDP)

The Good Practices for the Distribution of Medicines for Human Use (GDP Good Distribution Practices) have a fundamental role in the quality of medicines and thermolabile that reach the European distribution network, Spanish, and finally the patient, customer or consumer. This quality has to be guaranteed, and for this, quality management systems are implemented following the guidelines of the European Commission, which depending on the role of each company or organization in the distribution chain, have a generic nature of their activities , or more specific and key, as is the case of Transportation. Whether the activity is properly drug distribution, subject to authorization, such as the case of companies or freelancers who provide transport services, or subcontracted services of another type, is very important, and in some cases mandatory to know and train in the GDP of medicines..

At ATEC+ID we have been working with both the Farma sector and the Transport sector for both consulting and training services, and we now offer this course to provide training support to both sectors and bring the different experiences that have come developing in the course of these first years of entry into force of the Guidelines.

Attached below is the link to the registration document, which you can send us by filling in directly by e-mail or by sending an e-mail to to make the reservation of the place or for us to expand the information, or you can Contact us through the form of contact of this web or through the telephone numbers (+34) 91 710 50 88 (+34) 665 608 533, we will be happy to extend the information.

TWI et In-Company Training


Training is key for a company to develop its activity without compromising quality, both internal and external, as well as efficiency in its operations and processes. When new requirements or opportunities appear, you need to make an effort to identify what internal needs, and what training needs or general training are revealed, because failure to do so would be assuming an unknown learning curve slope, as well as the occurrence of errors and inefficiencies. Do we really realize that we assume this?, and are we taking it for good? Do we know the cost is for both our personal and company reputation?

It is possible to identify real clear cases that have appeared and are appearing about training needs, for example the upgrade to ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015, the GDPs by pharmaceutical companies, and especially transportation companies, as new additions to LEAN Six Sigma and Lean, and we could indentify countless cases.

TWI (Training Within Industry) is associated with LEAN, and especially Lean Manufacturing in their approach to the need for middle managers with LEAN management capabilities, as these capabilities are different from the usual or traditional management plant. However, today there is a tendency to merge what is called In Company Training, or training in company with the concept or goal of TWI, to extend this idea to any middle management and even recently installed department directors, and provide training and assistance in adaptation to management styles, styles which can be LEAN, ISO 9001:2015, or others.

Ask us for In-Company training programmes, are certainly very interesting.

Assessment of this first course

This first training course or meeting of "Hot Rolling of Long Products" has contributed many things, in different areas, both the attendees, with whom we have exchanged many interesting views, as well as ourselves, to improve and focus the content of the future 2018 call, since it is our intention to hold this meeting annually. There were representatives or members of the main steel groups, and a certain foreign representation, European and Asian, which fills us with satisfaction.

In this first edition have been exposed the metallurgical technical bases, the forming in rolling and roll pass design, and the aspects to obtain good productivities and efficiencies, as well as a brief exposure of the market. These are very broad to deal with in great detail and two intense days, but they serve as a technical basis and starting point. In the future we hope to address more detailed and specific issues of each product, and types of mills, boxes, temperatures, grades, etc.

This type of meeting, in addition to the contents themselves, is interesting for the exchange of opinions and views among professionals in the sector, in a professional and relaxed environment, away from the usual daily activity that provides and tries to facilitate a few hours to gain perspective and be able to contemplate and analyze aspects of rolling, from a certain distance from the daily pressure of the mill.

We thank those institutions, companies and individuals who have facilitated the access and use of their material, and that remains in the knowledge of the attendees, and we take the opportunity to communicate to suppliers, engineers, researchers, and anyone in the sector, who from now on we have the possibility of collaborating in next year's edition, to analyze presentations that are of interest to the sector, that we will study with pleasure.
