Metal working industry is bracing for new challenges and new technologies in view of increasing competition vis-a-vis performance, quality, efficiency and environmental sustainability. There are difficult parts, intricate parts and difficult materials to be managed through metal working equipment and expertise from new technology horizons Viz. Additive Manufacturing, Industry 4.0, increasing use of robots, Micro machining and super finishing, and so on.

With a view to highlight the evolving trends in metal working technologies, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising the 'International Seminar on Metal Working Technologies’, on 25 February 2022 (Virtual Seminar). This seminar will dwell extensively on new manufacturing strategies, review and address the emerging trends, as well as expose users and manufacturers to a range of innovative solutions.
