Sheet Metal Forming and Stamping

Currently the following R&D projects are being conducted in Sheet Metal Forming group:

  • Properties of Sheet Materials (tensile, bulge, dome tests for biaxial deformation)
  • Evaluation of Lubricants under near-production conditions, using the Cup Draw and Strip Draw Test
  • FE simulation of Sheet Forming Operation and Prediction of Springback
  • Blanking/Shearing of Various Materials (AHSS, copper alloys) 
  • Application of Servo-Drive Presses to (a) form AHSS and Al Alloys and (b) blanking to improve sheared edge quality

 

NEW COURSE on the "FUNDAMENTALS AND APPLICATIONS OF SERVO-DRIVE PRESSES AND CUSHIONS"

  • First Course was held at Hyson Metal Forming Solutions, (Brecksville, Ohio) in cooperation with Hyson and Shiloh Industries, on May 3, 2017.  The first course was attended by 50 people.
