Darmstadt University of Technology, Germany

Winner of the Academic Relationship Award in 2014 (named “Scientific Award” until 2014)

The prize was awarded for cooperation on the pioneering project “Process optimization through oscillating tool movements in bulk metal forming.”

Project Description

Scientific paper about the project

Chemnitz University of Technology, Germany

Winner of the Academic Relationship Award in 2012 (named “Scientific Award” until 2014)

The prize was awarded to the professorship for “virtual manufacturing technology” at the institute for tool machines and manufacturing processes at the TU of Chemnitz for the long-standing, close and trusting cooperation on a number of funding projects of the DFG, ZiM as well as within a SFB (Special research project). Of all the special forming methods investigated in the projects, such as pretension pressing, joining or incremental forming processes as e.g. spin extrusion, many were first developed at TU Chemnitz and have been successfully applied in the industry. It is a noteworthy scientific achievement that the numeric simulation of the methods was always completed in parallel – several methods were solely developed based on the simulated pre-optimization using Simufact’s software. The ZiM-Project “Hybrid Mesh” represents a milestone in meshing technology for Simufact.


Additional information about collaboration projects:

  • Special research project (SFB)  "HALS" Project manager: Kai Kittner, virtual analysis of microscopic force and form closure in the boundary area of hydrostatically extruded components
  • DFG-Project: numeric-based development of a flat-clinch-connection
  • DFG-Project: numeric-based development of a metal-plastic composite via flat-clinching
  • DFG-Project: numeric-based optimization of non-round pressing processes (Sebastian Härtel)
  • ZIM-Project: Hybrid mesh (Thoralf Gerstmann) ... joint exhibition booth at the BMWi Summer festival in Berlin 2010
  • DFG-Project: on numeric optimization of the shaft-hub-connection (Stefan Kleditzsch)


Furthermore, our simulation and manufacturing specialists are involved in an advisory role on over 20 project committees.
