The Forming and Machining Laboratory belongs to the Department of Mechanical Engineering. It has several presses for sheet and bulk metal forming, with pressing forces of up to 6.300 kN. A large number of test vehicles and measuring technology are available for practical trials of deep drawing and cutting sheet materials, as well as cold forging.
Practical FEM simulations of sheet metal forging are completed using the system AutoForm.
