ICHSF2012  – 5th International Conference on High Speed Forming in Dortmund, Germany

From April 24th – 26th, 2012 the 5th International Conference on High Speed Forming ICHSF2012 was held at Dortmund U-Tower. The event was organized and hosted in cooperation with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering of the Ohio State University. More than 80 participants from 13 nations from industry and academics attended the event. In addition to the presentation of new research results regarding impulse forming, the event provided a forum for the exchange of experience and the discussion between industrial users and researchers on an international stage.

Within the scope the conference an exhibition took place as well. This allowed the vendors of machines and measurement techniques for high speed forming processes the presentation of their latest products. The conference covered the process analysis of high speed forming and joining operations, the material characterization under high strain rates, the tool and machine development, the industrial applications for high speed forming processes as well as modeling and simulation of these processes.
