6th Forming Technology Forum – Modelling of process chains and interfaces for sheet metal forming – Program now online

The strategic focus of the 6th Forming Technology Forum lies in the Modelling of process chains and interfaces for sheet metal forming. Industrial processes get more and more complex, especially in the field of sheet metal forming. Many steps have to be performed until the requests concerning design, part properties and manufacturing strategies are achieved. Within that framework the global treament and consideration of process chains for sheet metal forming is mandatory in order to be able to utilize synergy effects. Interfaces between the different process steps and models of these sophisticated process chains enable more efficient strategies both for the design and the manufacturing processes. This gives rise to reduction of development time, simultaneously effort, but also an increase in quality, what is essentially for competitive sheet metal forming in future. Hence the strategic topic of the conference is promising for industry as well as for researchers acting in the thematic area of sheet metal forming. 

The conference will take place at the Haus der bayerischen Landwirtschaft in Herrsching (near Munich), Germany. The location is situated in a remote place near the Ammersee. Beside the participation in the conference Herrsching also offers the chance of resting in an arcadian atmosphere.

The conference will be accompanied by an exhibition. Are you interested in supporting  the conference and in presenting your company? Please feel free to contact the Conference Office, Alexia Ploetz (INVENTUM GmbH, Phone: +49 (0) 151 2122 7448,  e-mail: for any questions or proposals regarding your company’s presentation.

While having a get-together-dinner at the famous Andechs Monastery, there will not only be the possibility for further discussion and to engross the impressions of the presentations and talks, but also for networking in a cozy and chummily circle.
