The next generation of Metalforming

The theme of the ICOSPA congress 2020 is one that looks to the future of metalforming. We will explore the new innovative technologies that are transforming the way the industry operates, as well as tackling the economic challenges of retaining profits with the ever-increasing demands on sustainable performance in the manufacturing world. There will also be an important look at what we can do to attract the next generation of engineers to the industry so that the future of metalforming is in safe hands.

The 4 days will involve 2 days of conferencing, with chances to hear from keynote speakers in their areas of expertise and discuss the papers that have been submitted on topics tying in with the congress theme. The last day will also give attendees a chance to visit some factories of the leading manufacturers in the west midlands to see how their businesses are adapting to changes in the market.
