Process Robustness

Ideally, every blank and coil is stamped to produce identical parts that are within tolerance. Since material properties vary from coil to coil and from blank to blank, even when cut from the same coil, and even within a single blank itself, there can be inconsistency in part production.

AutoForm’s software allows you to address stamping robustness issues. Since the software takes into account the variability that is inherent in the forming process, a more realistic manufacturing environment is presented and the effect of the variability on the stamping process robustness is quantifiable and predictable. With this information, you can now develop the best product and tool designs for a robust stamping process. Potential stamping problems can be solved earlier in the vehicle development cycle, saving you time and resources, which means shorter ramp-up and higher productivity.
