In this issue of ISMR, we examine growth patterns, new market analysis and key drivers in global industrial fastener markets (page 18). We also chronicle the FormPlanet project’s aims to drive the sheet metal forming industry towards zero-defects production and optimise sheet material development, production and performance (page 22).

We highlight the results of two AFRC collaborative hydroforming projects and their ramifications for material/design flexibility and weight/cost savings on page 34. You can also evaluate different methods of material marking on page 38. We analyse growth forecasts, industrial trends and machine tool projections for the German economy (page 42) as well as trends and forecasts affecting global medical device markets for sheet metal manufacturers (page 26).

How do manufacturers protect themselves from cyberattacks? Find out how on page 48 as the industry increasingly addresses digitalisation. We also preview the forthcoming Global Industrie event in Paris (page 30) and highlight a selection of the latest global tube and pipe processing innovations (page 52).
