AutoForm’s software covers various forming technologies such as line/transfer die stamping, progressive die stamping, hot forming, tube hydroforming and hemming. Our state-of-the-art products that correspond to these technologies enable you to resolve the issue at hand.
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.
