High-Strength Steel Stamping

By replacing traditional steels with high-strength steels, car manufacturers can use thinner-gauge sheets to lighten vehicles while at the same time improve crashworthiness. Using a lower amount of steel per vehicle reduces both material and fuel costs, thus benefiting the environment.

With AutoForm software, you can realistically simulate the forming processes of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steels. These steels are not significantly lighter than traditional steels, but their strength allows you to manufacture very thin gauges, and thereby reduce the weight of the manufactured parts. The software provides you with all of the necessary information to design the process. Typical applications include the production of body structure parts, panels, doors and closures. AutoForm software allows you to master high-strength and ultra-high-strength parts which meet the most stringent requirements.
