Towards Improving Process Control in Sheet Metal Forming: A Hybrid Data- and Model-Based Approach

Abstract Ability to predict and control involved parameters and hence the outcome of sheet metal forming processes demand holistic knowledge of the product/-process parameter influences and their contribution in shaping the output product quality. Recent improvements in the ability to harvest inline production data and the capability to understand complex process behaviour through computer simulations […]

PREDICT | 2020-

The purpose of PREDICT is to achieve increased accuracy in failure predictions by developing advanced material models, calibration techniques and effective finite element simulations, which can enable unambiguous and reliable formability predictions. Specially, simulation failure predictions of phenomena such as non-linear strain paths, effect of strain rate, anisotropy and presence of edge cracks will be […]

Data-driven modelling in the era of Industry 4.0: A case study of friction modelling in sheet metal forming simulations

ABSTRACT With growing demands on quality of produced parts, concepts like zero-defect manufacturing are gaining increasing importance. As one of the means to achieve this, industries strive to attain the ability to control product/process parameters through connected manufacturing technologies and model-based control systems that utilize process/machine data for predicting optimum system conditions without human intervention. […]

Introductory study of sheet metal forming simulations to evaluate process robustness

ABSTRACT The ability to control quality of a part is gaining increased importance with desires to achieve zero-defect manufacturing. Two significant factors affecting process robustness in production of deep drawn automotive parts are variations in material properties of the blanks and the tribology conditions of the process. It is imperative to understand how these factors […]

Experiments and FE-simulations of stretch flanging of DP-steels with different shear cut edge quality

ABSTRACT Dual-Phase (DP) steels are today used in the automotive industry due to its large strength to weight ratio. However, the high strength of DP-steel does have a negative impact on the general formability in sheet metal forming. Unfavourable process conditions in the press shop will, on top of this, reduce the formability of DP-steels […]
