Hot Stamping Die Development and Process Simulation
Mike Austin, Director--Manufacturing Engineering, Diversified Tooling Group, Inc.
Mondragon Unibertsitatea, Fagor Arrasate, and Batz teamed up to perform trials on hot stamping of an aluminum bumper, by reengineering a die used for hot stamping of boron steels. They simulated and generated new die surfaces (in AutoForm), performed a tryout thermography study to help optimize the surface geometry to increase quenching efficacy, re-machined the die surfaces and adapted all die features, and performed forming trials on a Batz hot-stamping line.
