AutoForm’s software covers various forming technologies such as line/transfer die stamping, progressive die stamping, aluminum stamping, high-strength steel stamping, hot forming, BiW assembly and tube hydroforming. Our state-of-the-art products that correspond to these technologies enable you to resolve the issue at hand.
Line/Transfer die stamping technology is applied to produce parts that are free from splits or wrinkles and have the required dimensional accuracy and surface quality. At the same time, using this technology tight production deadlines can be met and the overall lead time and costs reduced.
Progressive die stamping technology is used for medium to high-volume production and complex part designs with tight tolerances. This technology ensures fast production and minimal scrap.
Aluminum stamping is carried out in order to meet tough requirements regarding vehicle weight reduction. This technology is effective in addressing the impact on fuel consumption and the harmful greenhouse effects of carbon dioxide emissions.
By replacing traditional steels with high-strength steels, car manufacturers can use thinner-gauge sheets in order to lighten vehicles while at the same time improve crashworthiness. Using a lower amount of steel per vehicle benefits the environment as it reduces both material consumption during production and fuel consumption while driving.
Hot forming has become increasingly important for the automotive industry in meeting specific requirements for lower overall weight and higher crash safety. Parts produced with hot forming are characterized by high strength, complex shapes and reduced springback effects.
The accuracy of the hemming operation is very important since it affects the surface appearance and surface quality of the component. 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.
Tube hydroforming allows for considerable freedom in designing and producing parts with challenging shapes, low weight and increased structural strength. This technology enables a reduced number of parts and joints.
