ASPECT project – Friction in metal forming

ASPECT European Regional Development Fund TriboForm is partner in the INTERREG project ASPECT on friction in metal forming. ASPECT stands for Advanced Simulation and control of tribology in metal forming Processes for the North-West European Consumer goods and Transport sectors.... View Article

Volvo Car Group: Door-inner Volvo XC90

With the accelerating pace of developments in the automotive industry, high impact innovations are required to ensure future growth. To shrink time lines and reduce development costs of new vehicles, software tools are increasingly used at Volvo Cars. TriboForm is... View Article

Daimler AG: Door-outer Mercedes-Benz C-class Coupé

In the stamping of automotive parts, friction and lubrication play a key role. To improve the quality of metal forming simulations, TriboForm is integrated to adequately describe these tribological factors and applied to the door-outer of the all new Mercedes-Benz... View Article

Skoda Auto: Front fender Skoda Fabia

The final quality of sheet metal formed parts like the front fender of the all-new Skoda Fabia is strongly determined by the type of sheet material, tooling material, lubrication type and lubrication amount used in actual production. For Skoda Auto,... View Article

Tata Steel: Replacing friction experiments

Instead of performing many friction experiments, friction and lubrication conditions can now be simulated using the TriboForm software. Fast, easy-to-use and cost effective. This is demonstrated through an comparison between friction experiments and TriboForm simulations. Directly go to the: Technical... View Article

Volvo Car Group: U-bend product

The accuracy of sheet metal forming simulations strongly depends on, amongst others, friction modelling. The industrial standard is to use the Coulomb friction model with a constant coefficient of friction. This reference case shows that friction conditions in stamping production... View Article


  • ''Simulation of temperature effects in the start-up of stamping production is the key topic in the EU ASPECT project. TriboForm delivers part of the required simulation technology''

    Consortium - ASPECT project

  • 'At the CAE & Die Development Department of Volvo Car Group, it is concluded that friction simulation is the way forward for improving metal forming simulations'

    Dr. M. Sigvant, Volvo Car Group (FTF 2015)

  • 'If the quality of metal forming simulations is to be improved, an adequate description of tribological factors is required'

    Prof. K. Roll, Daimler AG (Numisheet 2008)

  • 'Optimizing the process and lubrication conditions in try-out and mass production is the way to make high-quality products at an increasingly competitive way; TriboForm is the enabling software solution. '

    T. Pilvousek & L. Rolecek, Skoda Auto

  • 'Instead of performing many friction experiments, we should truly understand friction and simulate it. TriboForm software is the enabling solution'

    C. Dane, Tata Steel (Triboforum 2013)

  • 'TriboForm enables more accurate sheet metal forming simulations by accounting for the friction and lubrication conditions corresponding to stamping production.'

    Dr. M. Sigvant, Volvo Car Group (FTF 2015)
