Hot Sheet Metal Forming Workshop
The Erlangen Hot Sheet Metal Forming Workshop had its 17th iteration on November 15th, 2022. Akin to the previous year, the event was again held in hybrid form with speakers and an audience present on site and joined by digital participants. With increased attendance at similar levels comparable to pre-pandemic numbers, a gradual return to normality could be observed. The opportunity for a lively exchange between science and industry over coffee and cake was provided and enthusiastically received by all participants. In four sessions, 13 speakers from industry and academia presented high-quality lectures on current topics ranging from semi-finished product technology to innovative approaches to process-side challenges, as well as insights into the past, present and future of hot stamping from an industrial perspective.
