The Stamping System

A recurring theme on this blog, so far, has been sources of variation in production that might not be apparent to engineers when defining, running, and evaluating a single simulation on any specific product/process design. Comments on the blog and…

Springback in sheet metal stamped parts is an often discussed topic. However, springback of closed-section tube-hydroformed parts is addressed less often. One possible reason for the delayed focus closed-section parts may be that tube-hydroformed parts achieve desirable strength-to-weight performance when…
