Forming Technologies

Innovative solutions for resource- and energy-efficient processing of light metals

The production and processing of metals play a decisive role in modern lightweight design. Our research leads to more efficient, stable, productive and cost-effective forming processes and the optimal use of modern materials.



Our Services

  • Development of new forming processes (at laboratory and semi-industrial scale)
  • Optimization of process chains in sheet and bulk metal forming
  • Extrusion, forging and rolling on semi-industrial scale facilities including manufacturing of precursor material
  • Optimization of heat treatment processes
  • Material characterization
  • Damage evaluation
  • Numerical simulation of forming processes (forging, extrusion, cutting, …)
  • Prediction of simultaneous microstructure evolution and prediction kinetics along a production line
  • In-house validation of models and simulations by using lab-scale and semi-industrial equipment
