University Stuttgart

Univ.-Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dr. h. c. Mathias Liewald MBA

The Institute for Forming Technology (IFU) at the University of Stuttgart was established in the winter semester 1958/59. Since then, numerous research projects and development work in the fields of sheet metal and massive forming, the development of new forming processes, the design and realisation of new forming equipment and much more have been carried out in the laboratories and premises of the institute.

Every two years, the IFU, in cooperation with the Research Society Forming Technology (FGU), organises the successful international conferences "New Development in Sheet Metal Forming (NEBU)" and "New Developments Hydro Forming (NEHY)" in Fellbach near Stuttgart. At NEBU 2016, we from schwer + kopka were represented with a specialist lecture on the topic "Industry 4.0 in forming technology". We will also be contributing in 2018 with a lecture on "Machine Condition Monitoring 4.0".
