As a research company, we offer three models of cooperation with different focuses. During bilateral projects, we work together in a special way in order to find solutions to individual questions. The working groups and research cooperations we offer concentrate on developments between companies in different areas of metal forming technology. With an extensively equipped test field, a great variety of simulation software as well as measuring and analysis technique that corresponds to the state of the art, the FGU represents a central role as coordinator and researching partner. With the support of the Institute of Metal Forming Technology (IFU) of the University of Stuttgart, we deal with current issues together with our cooperation partners and current research goals on the highest technical and scientific level.
