Metal forming is one of the most widely used manufacturing processes in the world. This age old process has undergone numerous technological developments in recent years, yet still faces a number of key challenges, particularly when it comes to hot forming.
What are the current industry challenges for hot forming, specifically in superplastic forming (SPF)? What technology and expertise is available to help confront these challenges? Why choose SPF over other metal forming processes?
Join us for part one of a series of webinars on metal forming that will get you thinking about the current superplastic forming challenges facing industry and gain valuable insights into the specialist metal forming technology and expertise available at the globally renowned Advanced Forming Research Centre, one of the specialist technology centres in the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) Group.
Hear from experts who are focused on addressing the typical challenges SPF brings, including long process cycle times, energy efficiency and process understanding. They will share unique vision and expertise on this rapidly evolving area of manufacturing. You will have the opportunity to ask the experts how the AFRC addresses real industry challenges by using its unique set of skills to improve quality and overall efficiency of the SPF process with a focus on process optimisation to maximise cost saving and time.
This webinar will be of interest to anyone working in the metal forming industry, whether you are an expert or a novice. It will appeal to a wide range of sectors, particularly aerospace, defence, nuclear and automotive.
