Aluminium Forming Meets Friction and Lubrication

In this blog post we reveal a case study for a problematic aluminium hood-outer whereby splits were observed along the part during try-out. Those splits were however not detected in the initial forming simulations, which allowed TriboForm to rescue the... View Article

Recently, issues occurred in tryout and production, in which they could not predict wrinkles in their initial sheet metal forming simulations. See how AutoForm plus TriboForm’s Plug-In results in improved predictability of wrinkling issues seen in reality.'

  • 'Cold stamped part suppliers are facing a new challenging era of ultra-high strength steel (UHSS) applications, with pressure to increase passive safety and decrease energy consumption. The challenges associated with UHSS are the result of relatively high frictional forces and a sensitivity to substantially high tool forces during the forming process. Moreover, springback effects can be significant, manifesting through wall warping, twisting, and longitudinal warping. To achieve high quality part production along with a robust process chain, process engineers need to identify the origin of springback and design the forming simulation as precisely as possible. One important contributor to securing the forming simulation quality is the digitalization of tribological conditions (such as friction conditions) based on real process conditions. In this blog post, I detail the results of a recent project by a major Tier 1 part supplier based in Japan — adopting an advanced TriboForm friction model in the forming simulation of a UHSS B-pillar.'
