Fundamentals of Forging 101 Workshop & Plant Tour
Tuesday, January 28, 2020
Fundamentals of Forging 101 Workshop & Plant Tour will establish the fundamentals of the forging process in language that you can understand, regardless of your experience level. As technology advances, it is becoming more important for forging professionals to understand the science behind the forging process and how it superior to other processes such as castings, weldments or machining from bar. The workshop will also cover how forgings are made and how quality is added through each step of the forging process. A complimentary plant tour will bring the basic forging principles together in an operating open-die forge plant.
Registration for this event is now closed.
