FIA Orders & Shipments Survey (by MTInsight)

FIA’s Orders & Shipments Survey program was re-launched in 2019 as a web-based high-end survey product. The survey’s scope is confidentially tracking FIA member North American shipments and bookings for forged products inclusive of the Impression Die, Open-Die and Rolled Ring processes.

About the FIA O&S Survey:

  • FIA partnered with MTInsight, the statistical tracking division of The Association for Manufacturing Technology (AMT), to build a custom analytics program to serve the forging industry
  • FIA members enter their monthly orders & shipments data into AMT's custom-built, confidential software system
  • Categories tracked include Open-Die, Closed-Die and Rolled Ring forging as well as markets served, and material used.
  • Survey takes 30-minutes or less to complete each month
  • Members complete their full 2022 sales (in Excel), then gain access to the program for monthly data loading
  • This is a members-only benefit

Questions? If you would like more information or a Zoom demonstration to walk through the process of working with the software and loading monthly numbers please contact Tricia Abruzzino at
