The Institute for Production Engineering and Forming Machines is one of the departments of the faculty of mechanical engineering at Technische Universität Darmstadt. Today forming technology is one of the important industrial basic technologies and of enormous importance to our modern industrialized society. In research and teaching we thoroughly examine questions with regard to new processes and technologies as well as microscopic phenomena. We act within research areas such as new press technologies and production processes but at the same time link with fundamental research issues. I assume that we can offer you an attractive and comprehensive scope of information and hope you enjoy discovering the fascinating possibilities of forming technology.

You may, of course, contact us for any questions and suggestions. We are looking forward to getting in touch with you.
