Metal Stamping and Tool & Die Conference

The Metal Stamping and Tool & Die Conference

2018 Highlights

The Metal Stamping and Tool & Die Conference was a hit in Nashville! With nearly 200 attendees and more than 25 exhibitors the event was very successful. All attendees enjoyed presentations in both stamping and tool & die tracks from top-industry leaders on new and evolving technologies. Day one started off with a bang with keynote speaker Adam Argullin, who spoke on the harmful effects of drugs and how to spot an impaired employee. Adam also wowed the crowd with his drumming abilities. During the two-day conference, topics covered ranged from “In-Die Welding of Assemblies” to “Planning and Realization of Material Savings.” We are looking forward to next year!
