During this study, the manufacturing technology "partial press-hardening with heated forming tools" was investigated in detail. The central goal was to develop a fundamental understanding of the manufacturing process window, and to illustrate approaches for simulation-based tool and process design. In addition to investigating the process on the basis of simplified experiments, the focus always lay on the knowledge-transfer to the real manufacturing process.
