Process combination for manufacturing of teethed, thin-walled functional components out of tailored blanks (DFG SFB/TR73 - A1/2)



Project Status: Active

Members


The second focus of the project is the fundamental scientific investigation of manufacturing functional components out of sheet metal by combined sheet and bulk forming processes. Therefore a single-stage combination of a deep drawing and upsetting operation is set up to manufacture a cup and to upset its wall with ongoing ram stroke. Beside the realization of gear teeth the calibration of pre-forms of features like the open carrier after the deep drawing operation is possible by upsetting. After the use of mild deep drawing steels in the first project phase, high strength dual phase steels were successfully qualified for their application in sheet-bulk metal forming processes.
