Investigation of Temperature Impact on Friction Conditions in Running Production of Automotive Body Components

Abstract During the running production of automotive body components drifts in theprocess window is seen causing problems with non-conforming parts. Up until now, these driftshave been counter-acted based on the knowledge and experience of the press line operators.This experience-based process control will however become more troublesome in the future asrecycled material grades will undoubtedly present […]

New press deflection measuring methods for the creation of substitutive models for efficient die cambering

Abstract Cost and time for die tryout are significant within the car industry, and elastic deflections of dies and presses are most commonly not considered during the virtual die design and forming simulation phase. Because of this, active surfaces of stamping dies are only cambered based on previous experiences of tool types and presses. However, […]
