Material stamping and forming laboratory
Tasks and areas of activity
One of the tasks to develop new steel grades and advanced coatings is assessment of formability by mapping the real shape of metal.
Behavior of metal with a sample restricted within the die can be different from that when slow strain rate tensile tests are performed.
Additionally, surface condition and antifriction coating properties are of significant consequence since they can relieve or obstruct sliding capacity within the die.
Formability of new and standardized types of products is measured by the laboratory team for:
Evaluation of stampability
Unique systems for determining behavior of formed metal
Rolling Process Simulators
State-of-the-art cold and hot running simulators
Testing of materials
Unique material testing systems
