Ceratizit Italia plans to take part in the 32nd annual meeting of cold forming specialists which takes place from 22-23 February 2016 in Düsseldorf. At the event Ceratizit engineers will share their technical knowledge and expertise with a talk on carbide tools for cold forming.

Key themes of the Ceratizit lecture include:

  • Carbide grade selection for metal forming tools
  • Design principles of hard metal tools for stamping, drawing, forging and
  • other cold forming processes
  • Tools analysis and optimisation based on finite element method (FEM) simulation
  • Hardmetal: powder metallurgy material based on tungsten carbide.

The meeting also covers trends and results from the fields of tools, materials and component development, coating technology, lubricants, forming machines and process optimisation in development and production, as well as on matters connected with Industry 4.0.
