Lecture contents

The development of new high-tensile sheet steel for car body pressing requires an adaptation of the forming process. The lecture shows the background of hot forming and presents the process chain from the feasibility study till the manufacturing process. Amongst others the manufacturing technologies for prototype construction and serial production are represented. As ultimate stage of production treatments against oxidation of the car body and hot formed parts are exemplified. Terminal the prototype and serial production is shown live at an excursion to a supplier of hot formed serial parts.


AutoForm Workshop

An AutoformWorkshop, which is relevant for the exam, is integrated within the lecture. AutoForm is a conventional FEM programme known from sheet metal forming operations which is used in the automotive industry. Within the workhop the fundamental handling of the programme will be teached. Beneath the theoretical content of the workshop the students will simulate on their own.
