(Registration forms will be posted when scheduling will be complete.)
Registration fee is $1,500 for a single registrant.
Two or more registrants entitle an organization to a $150 discount for each
person registered ($1,350/ea).
This cost includes attendance, luncheons, dinner banquet on the second
day, and a copy of the text manuscript.
Attendance is limited, therefore to ensure pre-registration, a deposit
of $200/ea. should be received no later than two weeks before the date
of the workshop. Full payment at least two weeks before the seminar date
will ensure registration.
Cancellation and Refund Policy:
If participation is cancelled and notice served properly, no less than
two weeks prior to the seminar date, fees paid will be returned, less a
non-refundable charge of $100.
Fees will be fully refunded if the seminar is cancelled by Metalforming
Inc., in which case a notice of cancellation will be mailed to the individual
participants, and posted on the website.
A block of rooms will be secured for participants at the following hotel:

Participants must make their own room reservation and payment arrangments.
The "Handbook of Metal Forming Processes" by Prof. Avitzur,
and a version of a software package, are available through Metalforming
An updated detailed agenda will be mailed to each registrant two
weeks prior to the course.

This seminar is designed for engineers, advanced technicians and technical
managers who deal with manufacturing or processing. Past seminars were
found to be most effective as a training tool for new plant engineers,
or transferees from other departments. It provides the needed background
training in the fundemental concepts of tube making.
The faculty of the workshop will provide a working knowledge of these
processes. This course will convey to the participants a basic understanding
of the mechanics of these processes and methods for process optimization
and product improvement. The use of computer modeling will be presented
for tube sinking, and as an aid to the understanding of the parameters
of the floating plugs. A computer software packages will be demonstrated.
Emphasis will be placed on computer modeling and control. Demonstration
and "hands-on" experience in the use of PCs in a user-friendly,
interactive method of modeling will be provided.
There will be time set aside for open discussions, as well as question
and answer sessions.
For more information, see the pages describing alternative
tube making processes.
