Conference profile

The areas of application for manufacturing simulation are diverse: forging, cold metal forming, rolling, sheet metal forming, mechanical joining, welding, and metal-based additive manufacturing ensure an informative series of presentations at the annual RoundTable. Every year, users from various branches of industry and science exchange their experiences and ideas on optimizing their manufacturing processes by the help of simulation software.

In an accompanying trade exhibition, service providers, suppliers and academic partners as well as media partners from the fields of forming, welding, and additive manufacturing present their services and products.

At least the Technical Session of the RoundTable on Thursday afternoon is traditionally reserved for information on upcoming product releases. In separate sessions, our product managers will present the roadmaps of the Simufact Forming, Simufact Welding and Simufact Additive product lines and give an initial insight into what innovations our next product versions are offering. Here you will have the opportunity to discuss developments and their directions as well as general industry trends with the experts of the software house.

Participant Feedback

„The RoundTable from Simufact is always a very informative and sociable event. I'd love to come back."
Mareike Kollmer, Schomäcker Federnwerk GmbH, Melle.


„The RoundTable always brings new impulses and ideas to use forming simulation with Simufact Forming even more effectively.“ Hinrich Lührs, Volkswagen AG, Baunatal.


„With the RoundTable Simulating Manufacturing, Simufact offers participants from the fields of forming, welding and additive manufacturing a multifaceted conference that enables a close professional exchange with experts from manufacturing technology in a friendly atmosphere. On the one hand, the conference considers application-specific examples where every user can find himself and, on the other hand, the RoundTable with its program provides insights into future trends in process simulation".
Alexander Chugreev, Leibniz Universität Hannover.
