Metal forming

Basic Information

Name: Metal forming
Facility: Metal Physics
Partner: Leibniz Institute for Solid State and Materials Research (IFW Dresden)


We provide a large variety of techniques that make metal forming at different stress states and conditions feasible. The tables below provide an overview about our machines, including the largest and smallest dimensions of the samples that can be formed.
