Overview of the departments and research groups at the IUL

The research activities of the Institute of Forming Technology and Lightweight Components comprise the development of new forming processes and process chains as well as the extension of existing production processes. The objectives are physically sound process descriptions, the configuration and improvement of component properties, and a holistic approach of the process efficiency. Methodological key aspects are material characterization and simulation methods. The fundamental research results are transferred to industrial practice. This process is often accompanied by industrial partners.
