Cold-forming with efficient material processing

, cordially welcomes you with current news from the tube branch!

Reshaping metals is something completely different to shaping them – that is as clear as day to the expert but not to the lay person, of course. It is very simple, since shaping mostly happens without intention. For example, after an accidental collision, a car looks dented and sad.

Reshaping, on the other hand, takes place with complete intention and the metal is made into the desired shape in an elegant, targeted manner and now in a way that protects resources. And a special way of effectuating this is spoken of in the topic for the month of March: Cold-forming with efficient material processing.

Topic of the Month

Cold-forming with efficient material processing

Photos topic of the month

Cold-forming is a high-speed metal-forming process where coiled wire at ambient temperature is precisely sheared to length, and then passed through a succession of tool and die cavities to displace the working metal.

Historically, cold-forming has been an experience-based technology, but this is changing as new computer-aided analytical tools are constantly being developed to facilitate efficient material processing.

Alberto Burri. The Trauma of Painting

© Kunstsammlung NRW
Despite being less known in Germany, the Italian artist Alberto Burri (1915 – 1995) – who created works consisting of industrial materials such as iron, jute, and plastic – was one of the most influential postwar European artists. Alberto Burri studied medicine before enlisting as a military doctor during World War II. His unit was captured in Tunisia in 1943, and Burri was sent to a prisoner of war camp in Hereford, Texas, where he began painting. After his return to Italy in 1946, Burri gave up medicine to devote himself exclusively to art – a decision that was directly influenced by his immediate impressions of the war and the defeat of Italy. Burri translated his experiences into a powerful visual language that annihilates the substance of traditional panel painting, redefining it in essential ways.
