TUBEHYDRO 2017 is the 8th in a series of international conference on tube hydroforming and aims for “Sustainable Manufacturing via Tube hydroforming and Relevant Forming Technology”.

TUBEHYDRO 2017 was organized by King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT), The National Metal and Materials Technology Center (MTEC), Thai Tribology Association (TTA) and Company Research and Development Center (CRDC) during November 14-17, 2017 in Eastin Grand Hotel SathornBangkok, Thailand: GPS (13.7188015,100.5222591). Additionally, China Society for Technology of Plasticity, Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity, Korean Society for Technology of Plasticity, and Taiwan Society for Technology of Plasticity are co-organizers.

We would like to extend our thanks to all delegates who attended TUBEHYDRO 2017 in Bangkok.

We would like to congratulate all recipients of Outstanding Paper Awards; namely,

- Analysis of Fracture Defect in the Tube-Hydroforming of a Trailing Arm (Sin-Liang Lin, Zih-Wei Chen and Fuh-Kuo Chen)

- Application of Tube Hydroforming and Rotary Draw Bending to Fabricate Faucet (Huiwen Hu, Tingyu Chen and Sheng-Yuan Wang)

- Modeling and analysis on wrinkling of curved surface shell during sheet hydroforming process (Wei Liu, Yizhe Chen, Yongchao Xu and Shijian Yuan)

- Development of Rotary Laser Dieless Forming Apparatus for Micro Metal Bellows (Tsuyoshi Furushima)

- Hot gas forming of Ti-22Al-24Nb-0.5Mo square cross-sectional tube (Xueyan Jiao, Gang Liu, and Zhiqiang Liu)

- Development of Press Bending Method with Cross-Sectional Deformation of High Strength Steel Tubes (Shohei Tamura, Keinosuke Iguchi and Masaaki Mizumura)

- High Speed Impact Cutting in Tubular Applications (Dirk Landgrebe, Tom Barthel and Frank Schieck)
