Assembly Hemming

The training introduces fundamentals of planning and simulation of sub-assembly joining and hemming operations with AutoForm Assembly. Using this product it is possible to create a concept of a joining and hemming process and to simulate it. Various types of hemming technology are supported, i.e.: conventional die or table-top hemming and robotic roller hemming.

The following main topics are covered in detail:

  • Basics: Development of concept of hemming operation
  • Definition and simulation of robotic roller hemming. Generation of roller tools and their trajectories
  • Definition and simulation of conventional die hemming. Generation of active faces of pre- and final hemming tools and their kinematics
  • Evaluation of a hemming simulation: Determination of tool forces, material roll-in, geometry of the hem, material wrinkles and splits


This two-day course provides an introduction to AutoForm Assembly and is intended for die designers, tooling engineers, and process planners who are involved in the tooling and process development for hemming.
