50th anniversary of the Professorship of Metal Forming

On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the professorship, we would like to bring a part of its history closer to all who are interested. In loving detail former members of the department put together stories, facts and figures, curiosities and historical events in the festschrift:

50 years Professorship of Metal Forming
(1956 till 2006)
From the section Forming Technology of the Academy of Mechanical Engineering Karl-Marx-Stadt to the Department of Forming Technology of the Chemnitz University of Technology

The department would like to thank Dr. Siegfried Gorbauch, Dr. Günther Herold, Dr. Jörg Schladitz and Prof. Aribert Schwager, who invested many hours of hard effort, time and personal commitment for the collection and the writing of the festschrift.
