Traditionally, the Stamping Technology Congress takes place in Dortmund's Westfalenhalle, this year for the 13th time. At the annual event, the latest trends in stamping technology are addressed and presented in specialist lectures. A special highlight this time will be two non-specialist impulse lectures with the central theme "New Work - New Working Worlds". A look at the programme:

Students cannot start early enough to make contacts and gain insights into later, relevant fields of work. Since the summer semester of 2022, the utg has therefore had the idea of a mentoring programme that brings together students and industry from the field of foundry technology. Here is an exciting experience report:

The research project is entitled "Avoidance of high slugs by influencing slug friction". The EFB believes that this interesting work deserves a special award. The award will be presented on May 8. 2023 in ceremonial surroundings in Würzburg, in the context of the EFB colloquium. A portrait of the outstanding scientist:

Women in men's jobs? That is no longer something special. And so, as part of the annual "Girls' Day", we present our chair and the Fraunhofer IGCV to interested young ladies. In addition to theoretical information and tours, there are interesting insights into practice. As a special highlight, models formed by the ladies themselves, will be cast.

If you are interested in exciting topics from the fields of mobility of the future, materials technology, forming and casting manufacturing processes or the use of AI in production, you have come to the right place. At the Chair of Forming Technology and Foundry, we offer you a young, friendly and positive environment with team spirit and a start-up feeling in which you can develop your own ideas…

In December, the second workshop in the framework of the TUM-Aalto Cooperation took place in Finland. The motto: "A Joint Workshop on Sustainability in Materials and Manufacturing". The guest article by Junhe Lian, Assistant Professor of Advanced Steels and Applications, Aalto University, provides insight into the successful and fruitful cooperation.

In September 2022, Oliver Zipse, Chairman of the Board of BMW AG, was appointed Honorary Professor at TUM. Now, Professors Wolfram Volk, Rüdiger Daub and Klaus Drechsler were able to present the new colleague with a unique professorial hat at a ceremony.

After a long break, the traditional "Barbara celebration" took place on 1.12.2022 with 100 guests from industry and science. In addition to Gießereitechnik München, with utg and Fraunhofer IGCV, the VDG Bavarian Association participated in the organization. In well-founded and partly industry-political technical lectures and an impressive industrial exhibition, the focus was on red-hot topics. …

This year, the company outing of the representatives of Fraunhofer IGCV and the utg chair went to northern Italy. As part of this, the scientific staff were guests of two companies from the foundry sector. They reported on extremely interesting encounters and a "fruitful" scientific exchange.

Around 40,000 trade visitors came to the 26th International Technology Fair for Sheet Metal Working in Hannover from 24 to 28 October 2022 to find out about the current status and news in their industry. As coordinator of the SPP2013, utg's representatives presented the ongoing projects on the topic " Opportunities of residual stresses in forming technology".
