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.
Successful tool production is based on reliable simulation results and an accurate evaluation, leading to reduced number of correction loops. Through an efficient tool tryout, your tool shop can 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 stamping simulation, you can address these issues and determine appropriate correction measures for successful part production.
In transfer die stamping, a strip of metal is fed into the first station of a mechanical transport system, where the blank for the component is cut from the strip. The blank is then transferred mechanically through various forming stations until a finished part is produced.
In progressive die stamping, a steel strip is formed into a finished part through a series of stamping stations, which perform simultaneous operations. The part is carried from station to station by the stock strip and is cut out of the strip in the final operation.
Aluminum usage in the sheet metal stamping industry has increased over the last few years. Aluminum’s unique metallurgical properties make it highly suitable for multiple applications.
High-strength steel has been the most commonly used material for stamped parts over the last several decades. The stamped parts produced from this material are characterized by high strength.
Using hot forming technology, parts are formed in their soft state at elevated temperatures and then quenched in the tool. Parts produced by hot forming are characterized by high strength, complex shapes and reduced springback effects.
In car part production, hemming is used in assembly after the deep drawing, trimming and flanging operations to join two sheet metal parts together. Accurate hemming is very important since it affects surface appearance and surface quality.
Tube hydroforming is used in the production of various tubular parts, which are highly resistant and light. With this technology, tubes are formed into different shapes using internal fluid pressure to form a tubular blank.
