Dear Members and Friends of the Forging Family,

The future of forging – being the motto of our 1st EUROFORGE conFAIR – strongly depends on two factors: on the one hand we need a powerful and innovative supplier base to ensure reliable processes and state-of-the-art solutions along the whole supply chain. On the other hand intense research & development efforts have to be taken by forging companies as well as the scientific community. The main aim is to defend and extend the advantages of the forging technology against other competing technologies and provide answers to the future challenges of the industry and the global environment.

The EUROFORGE conFAIR 2018 addresses both these factors. By providing the opportunity for all kinds of suppliers to present their latest products and solutions contributing to the effectiveness and efficiency of the forging companies in an extensive fair and exhibition. And by organizing a conference that will cover the latest technological developments by world-leading institutes and innovation leaders from the industry.

I cordially invite all members of the forging family to join in this event and use the opportunity to meet and exchange on common challenges and on innovative technical solutions. I will be very happy to welcome you in Berlin in 2018!

Tobias Hain
EUROFORGE Secretary General
