II Day ASAMMET-Metal Hard 2016

Appreciated colleagues,

From ASAMMET we are pleased to announce (the NEW DATE IN BRIEF), at La Universidad de La Rioja (Logroño), we will celebrate the II ASAMMET-Metal Hard Day, which we have designed as a 2nd edition of the successful day that was held in Barcelona two years ago. Once again, this activity aims to consolidate the space in which the main manufacturers, transformers and users of hard metal in our territory can share their experiences, concerns and news. More than 350 companies in the sector have been contacted for this day and a significant participation is expected from manufacturers of raw materials, cutting tool manufacturers, heat treatment specialists and coatings, as well as users of hard metal in all areas.

In this day, based on the sharing of experiences, from the knowledge and research carried out by the companies themselves and by various research groups, we hope to be able to answer the doubts and questions that may arise. The network of contacts, initiated in 2014, is consolidated as one of the main networks of users and applicators of hard metal in our country.

We encourage you to participate / attend, while this day will be, once again, an excellent occasion in which all the fields related to Hard Metal are mentioned today. The provisional agenda, pending the last details, is in the attached file, and registrations can be made on the following form.

The program will be updated regularly, including all the news related to the event.

Reduced membership fees !!

(The capacity of the day is limited and enrollment will be attended by a strict order of registration)
