Incorporating interviews with leading international industry, government figures, academic and association figures, International Sheet Metal Review offers a strategic insight into the latest news, company and product developments, technological and technical advances, market trends, innovations and new business opportunities. It has a targeted global readership of over 35,000 per month.
Today, industrial robots are an essential part of many manufacturing processes across a broad range of market sectors. Robots, as part of a modern manufacturing strategy, bring a host of benefits including process consistency; improvements in productivity quality and yield; high levels of flexibility and the ability to free humans from dirty, tiring or hazardous working environments.
A new digital meeting place for the international sheet metal working community, the EuroBLECH Digital Innovation Series 2021, kicked off with an event focused on forming technology (including sheet metal parts and materials, as well as tool technology) from 27-28 April 2021.
