Top-level research in the field of metal forming – this is done by the IMF of the TU Bergakademie Freiberg. It is possible to realize projects from laboratory to industrial scale due to the excellent research infrastructure of the institute.
The focus of the research is on new lightweight concept, especially with magnesium alloys and on the development of technologies for the production of long and sheet metal products. In addition, the characterization and modelling of the properties and the deformation processes are also important topics.
For this purpose, the Institute of Metal Forming has various specialist groups of scientists and technicians at its disposal, as well as a very extensive and sometimes unique range of machinery and equipment.
