Forming Technology Forum 2017 On smart forming processes

The focus of the 10th Forming Technology Forum is on smart forming processes, in which process control is supported by dedicated process models. It is strongly related to concepts as zero-defect manufacturing and first-time-right production.

The conference brings together researchers and practitioners in production technology, modelling and control to share and benefit from each other's experience by high quality presentations and lively discussions.

Forming Technology Forum

Forming Technology Forum is a 2-day conference with a limited number of carefully selected presentations and sufficient time for in-depth discussion. The forum is organized annually and each year a different theme is selected.
