Prof. Dr. -Ing. H. Palkowski

The Institute of Metallurgy at Clausthal University of Technology is a merging of the Institutes of General Metallurgy, Ferrous Metallurgy and Foundry, and Metal Forming, done in October 1999. The Chair of Metal Forming and Processing was reoccupied after a time of vacancy in 2000 by the current chair holder Prof. Dr.-Ing. Heinz Palkowski. The main research activities of the chair focus on:

  • Forming of metallic and nonmetallic materials, cladded materials and compounds (rolling, deep drawing, extrusion, wire and tube drawing, plating)
  • Joining by forming
  • Process optimization to customers' specification for wrought products and components
  • Roll casting of MMC reinforced magnesium sheet
  • Numerical simulation of forming processes
  • Process and material identification
  • Material behaviour

The teaching of the department addresses students of metallurgy, metal forming, mechanical engineering, material science and business and industrial engineering. All activities are close to the industry, being the basis for a successful profession in the aforementioned areas of employment.
