In the workshop or on a plant floor, forgers may remain focused on individual processes or parameters — optimizing press strokes for example, or controlling die temperature. In the office or board room, the focus is wider — how can we coordinate all these process steps, integrate them more effectively and more productively? The latter inclination prevails on the trade show floor too, so that new ideas for forging may be found seeded among technologies for thermal processing or
Big Ideas for Now, Possibilities for the Future
From preforming machinery to simulating die behavior, new applications of technology for forging find a place in the wider scope of manufacturing technology.
