Feedback on part feasibility which is delivered in a timely, reliable and comprehensible manner is important in order to ensure an optimal part design. The feasibility analysis enables you to quickly identify problem areas in the part such as splits, improper thinning and possible wrinkles.
Efficient Planning & Bidding enables the rapid and transparent cost estimations for the production of automotive body parts. As a designer or cost analyst, you can use this information to make reasonable estimations for the selected stamping process.
During process engineering, the simulation and evaluation of the entire forming process is carried out. It allows you to setup the entire stamping process, make process modifications and also evaluate different process layouts before choosing the most suitable one.
A systematic tryout process based on simulation results gathered in the engineering phase can greatly improve the efficiency of tryout. Through an efficient tool tryout, your tool shop can effectively deal with complex part geometry, high-strength steel materials and high quality demands.
In a production process, even after stamping thousands of parts that meet quality specifications, the part reject rate may suddenly rise for no apparent reason. With AutoForm software, you can address such issues and achieve smooth part production with a lower reject rate.
Line/Transfer die stamping technology is applied to produce parts that are free form splits or wrinkles and have the required dimensional accuracy and surface quality. At the same time, using this technology tight production deadlines can be met and the overall lead time and costs reduced.
Progressive die stamping technology is used for medium to high-volume production and complex part designs with tight tolerances. This technology ensures fast production and minimal scrap.
Aluminum stamping is carried out in order to meet tough requirements regarding vehicle weight reduction. This technology is effective in addressing the impact on fuel consumption and the harmful greenhouse effects of carbon dioxide emissions.
By replacing traditional steels with high-strength steels, car manufacturers can use thinner-gauge sheets in order to lighten vehicles while at the same time improve crashworthiness. Using a lower amount of steel per vehicle benefits the environment as it reduces both material consumption during production and fuel consumption while driving.
Hot forming has become increasingly important for the automotive industry in meeting specific requirements for lower overall weight and higher crash safety. Parts produced with hot forming are characterized by high strength, complex shapes and reduced springback effects.
As one of the last operations carried out on automotive body panels, hemming can have a significant effect on a vehicle’s performance and overall quality. The accuracy of the operation significantly affects the appearance of the car’s outer surfaces and is therefore critical in achieving the desired quality of a finished vehicle.
Tube hydroforming allows for considerable freedom in designing and producing parts with challenging shapes, low weight and increased structural strength. This technology enables a reduced number of parts and joints.
