Last week, thirty-eight forging professionals came together in Cleveland, Ohio, to participate in FIA's Theory & Applications of Forging & Die Design Workshop.
The workshop, led by Colorado School of Mines Assistant Professor Kester Clarke and a team of industry experts, focused on a wide range of topics that carefully explained the principles and practices of forging and die design. Participants were able to submit a real-life problem from their companies for a special problem-solving session. In addition, there were opportunities to network with industry peers, share best practices and forge new relationships.
Over the past 50 years, FIA's Theory & Applications of Forging & Die Design Workshop has continued to evolve and expand, offering insights into the latest forging technology and metal flow simulation software.
"In its history, more than 2,500 forging professionals have attended this workshop," exclaimed FIA President and CEO Jim Warren, "FIA will continue to produce and deliver high-quality training programs to position members of the forging industry for ongoing growth and success."
