Together with the colleagues of the materials test engineering and machining technology, the IUL was again extensively involved in this year's Open Day at TU Dortmund University. For a total of five hours, interested visitors were able to explore the IUL's experimental field and gain insights into the basics as well as current research topics during the guided tours. Machines for bulk forming and additive manufacturing, i.e. the production of modern forming tools, were demonstrated live so that the visitors could get a first-hand impression of forming technology. Afterwards, a blacksmith invited visitors to do it themselves. Using their own muscle power, visitors were able to form a nail into its final shape in the traditional manner, in the style of established craftsmanship. In addition, the guests were offered coffee and cake. Young visitors had the opportunity to design magnetic or attachable buttons, which were then pressed into their final shape in a short sheet metal forming process. This laid the foundation for an increased interest in the field of engineering at an early stage.
