Innovation by forming technology: Motivation for research

Publikation: Beiträge in ZeitschriftenZeitschriftenaufsätzeForschungbegutachtet


This paper focuses on new forming techniques for the improvement of product quality, the reduction of process chains and the saving of our available resources. The presented and discussed technologies cover extrusion of reinforced profiles, bending of profiles, single point incremental forming of polymers, and tool systems made of polymers coated by hard metal as well as re-manufacturing strategies. Beside the process principles and advantages several results from numerical and experimental investigations will be given in order to show the motivation for fundamental and application oriented research in the field of forming technology.
