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 reliable part production with a lower reject rate.
Line/Transfer die stamping technology allows manufacturers or suppliers to successfully deal with complex part geometries, modern materials, tight deadline requirements and quality demands. With this technology, you can reduce overall lead time and costs, while ensuring high part quality.
Faced with high-volume production, complex part designs, tight tolerances and increasing cost reduction demands, manufacturers and suppliers rely on progressive die stamping technology. This technology enables you to increase productivity and reduce costs.
With the automotive industry’s increasing cost reduction and environmental priorities, the production of lightweight cars has risen significantly. By substituting steel components with aluminum alloys, you can achieve a reduction in car weight without compromising on size.
Today, those involved in automotive part production face tough requirements regarding vehicle weight reduction and its impact on fuel consumption, carbon dioxide (CO2) emission limits and manufacturing costs. By applying high-strength steels, you can reduce the weight of stamped parts without compromising on strength.
Hot forming has become increasingly important for the automotive industry in meeting specific requirements for lower overall weight and higher crash safety. Parts produced by hot forming are characterized by high strength, complex shapes and reduced springback effects.
Accurate hemming is very important since it affects surface appearance and surface quality. Material deformations, which occur during the hemming process, can lead to dimensional deviations and other typical hemming defects, including splits and wrinkles in the flange, material overlaps in the corner areas and material roll-in.
Tubular parts with complex shapes and contours, high resistance, low weight and high-quality surfaces pose challenges in the automotive industry. In comparison to classical stamping technology, tube hydroforming allows you greater freedom in designing such parts and ensure for cost savings in terms of tooling, set-up time and material.
