Celebrating 50 Years of Forming Technology in Dortmund: On September 8 and 9, 2022, the anniversary celebration of the Institute of Forming Technology and Lightweight Components (IUL) took place in Dortmund. Numerous companions of the institute from Germany and abroad accepted the invitation and used the festivities for a professional and personal exchange. While the first day of the festivities took a look into the future with the international technical symposium "Impulses and Innovations in Metal Forming" and considered innovations and the latest processes in forming technology, the second day of the event celebrated half a century of the institute's history with all its facets. Distinguished guests addressed the history of the institution in their greetings, while alumni presented a comprehensive report of the evolution of the Chair for Forming Processes (Lehrstuhl für Umformende Fertigungsverfahren), founded in 1972, to today's Institute of Forming Technology and Lightweight Components. The institute is now one of the most internationally renowned and largest in its field and is characterized by excellent research with a wide scope and a high level of education for students and young scientists.
