State of the Art in Sheet and Bulk Metal Forming Techniques
The forming production of sheet metal and bulk components is a highly specialized and automated process today. Science and industry work closely together to constantly establish new processes to be more productive and economic. The change in forming technology due to the new challenges of globalization, sustainability, and the change in mobility can be addressed in this Special Issue. The worldwide challenges for production and forming technology in particular, due to the reasons mentioned above, are constantly driving researchers and industry to improve existing processes. State-of-the-art approaches for modern forming technology as well as new solutions in forming technology are of interest to this Special Issue. Topics from sheet and bulk metal forming to material characterization and numerical investigations for forming processes can be addressed in this issue.
