New FIA Forging Automation 101 Workshop Coming to Chicagoland

FIA is pleased to present a new program specifically developed to give forgers a first-hand look into how robotics and automation can help forging companies increase productivity, lower costs and improve workplace safety. The first FIA Forging Automation 101 Workshop and Plant Tours will take place on August 22-23 at the Chicago Marriott Midway.

Workshop participants will interact with automation equipment experts who have installed multiple systems across the forging industries and learn from plant tour representatives on how automation is working for their companies. There will also be opportunities to network with industry peers at a special group dinner.

If you are interested in exploring future trends in automation and robotics for your shop, this is the program for you. Registration for the FIA Forging Automation 101 Workshop and Plant Tours will be opening later this week.
