- Planning data from the press shop
(press line, automation, batch size)
- Classification of part geometry
(outer skin/field of vision, lay-on surface, sealing surface)
- Die face design:
- effect of tip angle and blankholder design
- addendum (trim, punch opening line, drawbars, take-up beads)
- Process layout:
- number of dies required
- development of flanges
- trim operations/scrap disposal
- restrike and flanging operations
- Integration of forming simulation
This two-day course is intended for process, stamping and manufacturing engineers, for tool designers (prototype and series production tools), and for press shop planners.
