Research Areas

The research activities of the Institute of Forming Technology and Lightweight Components (IUL) include the development of innovative forming processes and process chains as well as the extension of existing forming  processes. The goals are physically-based process descriptions, the adjustment and improvement of component properties, and the holistic consideration of process efficiency. Methodological focal points are material characterization and simulation methods. Fundamental research results are transferred to industrial practice, often together with partners from industry, through applied research.
