Symposium Mechanical Surface Treatment 2019


The wbk Institute of Production Science at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology is hosting the 8th Workshop of Machine Hammer Peening within the scope of the symposium on Mechanical Surface Treatment. The conference is intended to provide researchers and participants from industry a joint communication platform and give information on current topics relating to mechanical surface treatment. With the support of experts from industry and research the conference program includes contributions on innovations in process development in industry and science and gives an insight into innovative application examples.

Symposium on Mechanical Surface Treatment:

8th Workshop Machine Hammer Peening


Hands-on workshop „Digitalised production and megatrend industry 4.0“ and networking including dinner


Call For Presentations:

The conference relies on your active support both as a participant and as a speaker. Take the opportunity to present your latest research results, technology developments or application successes to a selected audience of experts. Contributions from industry and universities are equally welcome. Please register your presentation until 15.08.2019 using the registration form.


Presentation language:

With regard to our participants: We hereby kindly ask all speakers to prepare their slides in English. The community in mechanical surface treatment is growing around the globe. However, as our main audience comes from Germany and Austria, the presentations can be held in either German or English.


Participation and registration:

Participation at the event is only possible after a binding registration. After reception of your registration you will receive an email confirmation. The number of participants is limited and registrations will be handled in the order in which they are received. The participation fee is € 125,- per person and includes drinks during breaks, lunch and the evening event on 22 October 2019



The Workshop is addressed to manufacturers, developers, users and researchers in relation to the respective technology of university or industrial institutions.



Speakers will be scientists of the relevant university institutions and experts from industry in the area of incremental surface hardening, tool and mould production or forming technology.



The duration of the presentation will be 30 minutes (25 min presentation + 5 min discussion). The language of presentation is German. The presentation slides should be written in English.

How to find the conference:

Arrival by car:

Take the A5 motorway exit "Karlsruhe-Durlach (44)" in the direction of Karlsruhe onto the Durlacher Allee in the direction of KA-Zentrum. After about 2.4 km turn right north at the "Durlacher Tor" crossroad and follow the sign "KIT-Campus Süd (do not drive through the main gate of the KIT). Drive straight for about 700 m and turn right at the traffic light before a pedestrian bridge onto the street “Am Fasangarten”. After 100 m turn left into car park “Fasanengarten”. Signs will you lead to event location.
