The Metal Forming Center of Excellence (MFCE) was established in 2010, funded by the Turkish Ministry of Development and Atilim University. The Centre aims to support the Turkish and European metal forming industry through research in four main areas; developing innovative, knowledge-based manufacturing technologies; manufacturing high value-added components; manufacturing using new and advanced materials; and, exploring options for energy-efficient manufacturing.The research is conducted in close collaboration with both academia and industry. Since 2010, the Centre has worked on a significant number of national and international, small and medium-sized projects, developing an extensive database of contacts throughout the metal forming community and a considerable experience in disseminating knowledge through organising seminars, workshops and training courses.To support research, a range of facilities are available at the Centre, including metal forming machinery, equipment for forming-related measurement, material and microstructure characterisation as well as software and hardware for numerical analysis.
