In addition to the presentation of new research results regarding high speed forming, the conference intention is to provide a forum for the exchange of experiences and the discussion between industrial operators and researchers on an international stage. The topics covered by the conference will reach from new developments in impulse forming to current industrial applications of these processes to future aims of high speed forming.
The conference will cover the following topics:
Forming and joining technology technologies driven by electromagnetic, electrohydraulic, explosive, hydro punch, vaporizing foil actuator, laser ablation and other novel mechanisms.
Tools and Equipment
Design guidelines and applications of tooling and pulsed power equipment design
Process efficiency, emission, and life cycle analysis
Materials and Measurement Techniques
Material characterization, high speed testing methods, and process monitoring
Modeling and Simulation
Finite and boundary element methods, physical modeling, and analytical techniques
High speed forming applications, Impulse welding and crimping as well as hybrid processes
