AutoForm’s state-of-the-art technology covers the BiW assembly process chain, combining all of the critical aspects of assembling parts. Our software products enable you to expand digitalization and address complex issues before they can arise in production.
AutoForm software supports the entire BiW assembly process chain, which covers early feasibility, process engineering and BiW production. By implementing AutoForm software for your BiW assembly process, you can gain deep insight into the car body manufacturing process, quickly evaluate alternative part and assembly process designs, identify the causes of dimensional deviations and undertake effective countermeasures. As a result, you will achieve dimensional accuracy of the entire BiW.
A feasibility analysis enables quick identification of problem areas in the assembly process design and provides the best possible alternative solutions to correct them.
Assembling parts can lead to dimensional deviations due to gravity, tolerance stack-ups and the clamping strategy. Since the parts to be assembled are affected by springback, results may be inaccurate when these parts are joined. Therefore, springback must be managed to determine which parts need to be compensated in order to ensure the assembly within tolerance.
The accuracy of the hemming operation is very important since it affects the surface appearance and surface quality of the assembly. 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.
During production, problems may arise due to process variations. To ensure repeatability and robustness in production, crucial process parameters must be defined already during process validation.
In a production process, whether in early ramp-up or during mass production, accuracy may suddenly decrease for no apparent reason. This may lead to unplanned production downtime, missed production targets or products of insufficient quality.
