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

Renault: the Talisman Trunk Lid Inner Story

We have been saying it for some time. More and more automotive companies are demanding a more accurate description of tribology conditions in forming simulations to prevent production issues and increase overall production stability for higher quality parts. In this... View Article

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


  • 'A case study for a problematic aluminum hood-outer whereby splits were observed along the part during try-out. See how TriboForm rescued the part by integrating the true tribological behavior.'

    Chanho Lee - AutoForm Engineering Korea Ltd

  • 'Volvo Cars, like most OEMs, is looking for the next step to improve simulation accuracy and reduce tryout corrections. This is why they invest in TriboForm it is the next step forward.'

    Marc Lambriks - AutoForm Engineering

  • 'Accounting for the actual tribology system and it’s variations is critical for use in stamping simulations and brings simulations closer to press-shop reality. '

    Julie Lacues, Groupe Renault

  • '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

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

    Prof. K. Roll, Daimler AG

  • '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'
