Expometals.netThe international online fair of metal manufacturing and processing. Wire, tubes, coils, bars, fasteners, springs and much more. Online since 2001.
The absence on Internet of an international meeting place, a unique, and above all independent portal about the world of metalworking (drawing, rolling, extruding and fasteners), and the need expressed by many of a means of communication and advertising like this one, give rise to the network expometals, the first online exhibition of the field, from raw materials to finished products.
The platform, now in its third release, was made on the basis of an in-depth sector study, after which the project participated in the competition "Vinci" at the University Politecnico of Milan. After 10 years the portal is always in constant expansion, not only in content but also from the structural point of view, thanks to the work of a young and dynamic staff, combined with the suggestions of the exhibiting companies.
