Process Combination of Combined Deep Drawing and Cold Forging

Funding: German Research Foundation (DFG)
Project: TE 508/61-1
Contact: Johannes Gebhard M. Sc.
Status: Completed

In order to adjust the local mechanical properties of a component, the combination of different materials is a common approach.

Prevention of Longitudinal Weld Streak Defects on Anodized Aluminum Profiles

Funding: AiF/Stifterverband Metalle
Project: 18756 N
Contact: Johannes Gebhard M. Sc.
Status: Completed

A frequently occurring process error of hot extruded aluminum profiles are longitudinal weld seam defects, which only appear after anodization and can lead to rejection.

Composite Cold Forging of Cold Forged Semi-Finished Parts

Funding: German Research Foundation (DFG)
Project: TE 508/54-2
Contact: Robin Gitschel M. Sc.

Up to now, composite shafts were successfully manufactured from an aluminum- steel composite.

Influencing the Evolution of Damage in Cold Extrusion

Funding: German Research Foundation (DFG)
Project: CRC/TRR188 • Subproject A02
Contact: Dr.-Ing. Oliver Hering

In addition to the influence of residual stresses and strain hardening, damage in the form of pores affects the product performance of cold forged components.

Manufacture by Forming and Characterization of Actuator Profiles Based on Shape-Memory-Alloys

Funding German Research Foundation (DFG)
Project TE 508/45-2
Contact Dr.-Ing. Oliver Hering
Status Completed

In cooperation with the IAM-WK of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) the manufacturing of shape memory alloy metal matrix composites by means of composite extrusion was investigated.
