The personal presentation will be supported by slides and overhead projection, synchronized tape and slide projection, videos, and computerized slide projection. User friendly software packages, as listed in the page on Tutorials will be demonstrated and hands-on sessions to practice their use will be provided.

An abstract of previous seminars include:

  • Wire Drawing
  • Deep Drawing
  • Ironing
  • Tube Making
  • Can Making
  • Bi-Metal Drawing and Extrusion
  • Modeling for the Friction Phenomena
