NMIS Insights

The future of forging: helping you take the next steps

NMIS Insights is a monthly series of breakfast seminars from the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS).

Advances in digital technology are helping the forging sector to modernise, enhance efficiency and meet the demands of a progressively environmentally conscious world. 

Whatever your company size and whatever you forge, there has never been a better time to innovate your products or processes but you might not know what support is available to you.

The AFRC  is a specialist technology centre within the National Manufacturing Institute Scotland (NMIS) and we are world leaders in forging research. In 2020 we will add to our established capability with the launch of our FutureForge facility - the world’s most advanced hot forging platform, complete with industry 4.0 digital connectivity.

This highly interactive event will demonstrate the help available to you. It will feature insights from the AFRC’s forging team alongside demonstrations on our industry representative scale forging equipment, real-world examples of how we have helped businesses like yours, and a sneak peek of our new facility using our FutureForge digital simulator.
