National Machinery LLC, in cooperation with its Representation for Italy, Austria, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Croatia and Slovenia, – Agenzia CORVETTA in Bolzano, Italy – organized in October the 32nd Italian edition of a training seminar for cold forming industry operators and tooling designers. The “Basic Tooling Seminar” and “Advanced Tooling Seminar” courses represent a unique offering in the Italian cold forming market and fill a gap in our industry’s training system. In fact, no other industry, association and/or institute in Italy offers specialized courses to train operators, toolmakers and designers of cold forming equipment. It is therefore not surprising that the courses held annually are always attended to capacity and that in recent years hundreds of specialized industry operators representing all the major Italian fasteners and tooling manufacturing companies have attended.
Some of the topics covered include: basic rules for forming, materials and their characteristics, cold forming machinery, die desing, press fit calculation, calculation of load and energy, and much, much more. The courses are taught in two languages: Italian and English with the added benefit for participants to hear all the relevant Anglo-Saxon terminology.
National Machinery offers these courses worldwide in the following languages: English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, Korean and Portuguese. See https://www.nationalmachinery.com/cold-forming-principals?lang=it
The Advanced course in October 2023, which was held in the beautiful setting of Tramin (a renowned wine resort in South Tyrol), was attended by 21 designers and toolmakers representing nine Italian companies, many of them UPIVEB members.
As a side program, participants were offered a guided tour of a renowned local distillery with accompanying tasting. Photographs are attached.
