Restart from innovation

Welcome to the 55th Plenary Meeting

The 55th ICFG Plenary Meeting will be held in Milan, Italy, from 11 to 14 September 2022, organized by University of Padova. We are delighted to invite all the ICFG members and their guests in the hearth of cold forging in Italy, which hosts some of the major worldwide industrial players in the field.

After the pandemic that have changed the world in the last two years affecting our societies and economies, the meeting will address the topic  “Restart from innovation” to focus on the answers that cold forging can give to the new needs and societal trends.
