Participate in the International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies 2017!

We would like to invite universities and mechanical engineering faculties to act as organizers of the annual International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies and students to participate in the event that will take place in April 2017 around the world.

The competition between students consists of the following parts:

  1. Students get a drawing of an axisymmetric part after machining.
  2. Design the hot forged part and die impression for the final forging.
  3. Determine the necessary technological chain for its manufacturing.
  4. Simulate the proposed forging process in QForm.

Since this year students can choose alternative task for developing technological process of hollow aluminium profile extrusion. Simulation is performed in QForm software for estimation and verification of the developed technology.

The 1st place winners from each country get prizes and move on to the International Committee judgment between countries where three students with the best developed technologies from around the world get special diplomas and prizes. On the results of the Olympiad 2016 Germany and Russia tied the 1st place. Mr. Karl Christoph Grötzinger (University of Stuttgart) and Mr. Dmitry Kormakov (Omsk State Technical University) got laptops ASUS X555LN Core i7 as main prizes.

Additional conditions: All universities taking part in the Olympiad will get a free 3-month network QForm software license for 3 places to practice before the Olympiad by request.
