The 32nd Forging Industry Technical Conference - A Great Success!

Last month, more than 150 forging industry professionals gathered in Long Beach, California for the 32nd Forging Industry Technical Conference.


Conference participants heard from customers, industry thought leaders and researchers on timely topics and forecasts designed to prepare their organizations for the changing technologies that will affect the forging supply chain. Participants also had the exclusive opportunity to visit Weber Metals for an unprecedented, up-close and personal tour of the new 60,000 ton press.


A special thank you to Weber Metals, Ellwood Quality Steels, Forging Equipment Solutions, GLAMA USA, PRESSTRADE, Rexroth- A Bosch Company, SMS Group, Uddeholm, and the conference exhibitors for making this a great event.
