Purpose and goal

Sheet metal forming dies are advanced products under massive global competition. The time to develop, produce and run-in the dies also constitutes an important part of the time to market for new vehicles. Therefore, the project aims to reduce the lead time by improving and optimizing the value stream, and introducing new research results, developed partly by industrial PhD work and Master Projects.

Expected results and effects

This work will lead to proposals for amendments in corporate standards and communication, as well as industrial guidelines and education for academic and industrial individuals.

Planned approach and implementation

The lead time will be shortened by improved communication, geometry assurance and new methods tor numerical analysis or the tool design that will drastically reduce the try-out time. Finally, the influence of the machine dynamics on the forming processes will be studied both physically and numerically.
