The conference series Umformtechnisches Kolloquium (Sheet Metal Forming Conference in) Darmstadt is held every three years jointly by the Institut für Fertigungsforschung e. V. (Institution for Research in Manufacturing) and the PtU (Institute for Production Engineering and Forming Machines). This year we were able to welcome numerous guests from industry and science.
During the presentations, the participants were informed about current trends in forming technology and the potential of digital solutions for this industry. The lecture program was supplemented by a tour across the institute's own test facilities as well as exhibition stands of industrial partners. The event was rounded off by a cozy finale during which the new 3D-servo-press was presented.
