AutoForm-HemPlannerplus R7 Hands-On Workshop
October 24, 2018 – Troy, Michigan USA

You’re exclusively invited to attend our AutoForm-HemPlannerplus R7 Hands-On Workshop on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. Doors open for registration at 7:30 AM and workshop will begin at 8:00 AM until 1:00 PM.

The workshop introduces fundamentals of planning and simulation of hemming operation with AutoForm-HemPlannerplus. Using this product it is possible to create a concept of a hemming process, whether conventional die hemming or roller hemming, and simulate it. Early evaluation of hemming geometry, process planning, choice of appropriate hemming technology, design of active tool surfaces and tool’s kinematics can be done based on the CAD surfaces. The main goal of this phase is to make sure that a problem-free production will be achieved and quality of the hemmed part will be within specification requirements.

Items covered during the workshop will include the following:

  • Fundamentals of hemming in AutoForm
  • Simulation of roller hemming, including tool generation and set-up
  • Simulation of conventional (table/die) hemming, including tool generation and set-up
  • Use of a rigid (nominal) inner panel
  • Use of a flexible inner panel, including import of simulated results in .asm format
  • Holding/fixturing of parts, including suction cups and pilots
  • Evaluation of hemming simulations, including material wrinkles and splits, springback, tool forces and material roll-in

Participants of the workshop will be guided step-by-step through the application workflow by way of practical examples.
