Results of the International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies 2017

The International Students Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging Technologies was arranged by 17 Organizers in 13 countries. Students from 39 metal forming departments participated in the event on 22 - 28 April, 2017.

The competition between students consisted of the following steps: students got a drawing of an axisymmetric part after machining and designed the hot forged part and die impression for the final forging, determined the necessary technological chain for its manufacturing and then simulated the proposed forging process. Simulation was performed in QForm software for estimation and verification of the developed technology.

We have collected all Olympiad results from International Committee members.
