Results of the International Student Olympiad in Hot Bulk Forging and Extrusion Technologies 2022

159 students from 12 countries took part in the Olympiad this year.

In the Hot Forging section, the participants had to design a hot forged part and a stamping tool according to the drawing of the part, determine the manufacturing sequence and simulate the process.

In the Extrusion section, they had to design a die set and select the optimal extrusion parameters for a specified aluminum profile.

Members of the Scientific Committee determined the winners:
