The aim of the conference is to present the latest developments in the research of tribological aspects in manufacturing processes. Therefore, subjects like lubrication, surface treatment, simulation or wear phenomena are in the scope of interest. Furthermore, the conference will focus on the integration of joining techniques into forming processes. The combination of joining and forming operations offers a favorable material utilization along with a high productivity. Since many researchers contributed to that field of research, the conference aims at summarizing recent developments. In addition to insights into current research in the field of tribology, the presentations include practical guidelines for solving tribological questions in an industrial environment.

Keynote speeches of Prof. Nils Bay and Prof. Mori will introduce the conference topic. Three parallel sessions on two days, offer the possibility to gain a comprehensive look at a variety of current research results. Altogether, the “6th International Conference on Tribology in Manufacturing Processes & Joining by Plastic Deformation” provides an international forum for scientists and practicing engineers from different disciplines to exchange their ideas and experiences.

On June 22, we invite all participants to a welcome reception. During the welcome reception and the evening event, you will have the opportunity to actively contribute to discussions with your colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere.

I am looking forward to welcoming you on June 22–24, 2014 in Darmstadt.

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Dipl.-Wirtsch.-Ing. Peter Groche
