Hydroforming of Tailored Welded Blanks

Project Status: finished


The employment of Tailor Welded blank in car bodies makes possible both weight and cost savings. The aim of this project is to use the advantages of hydroforming, like for instance the homogeneous hardening and the high accuracy and surface quality also in the case of Tailor Welded Blanks. In particular new process strategies were developed, in order to compensate the uneven forming behaviour of the different materials.
