Manufacturing with steel had its origin around 2000 BC in India and China. In less than 1000 years, in 1200 BC, the iron age started and with it the popularity of designing metals started spreading through the whole world. Since then, the technology used for manufacturing steel has developed exponentially and it continues to develop. This is exemplified by all the latest advancements in CNC processing and punching tools. By reading our Geka news page, you can follow the latest trends and developments in steel processing, designing and manufacturing.
