UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOS

Manufacturing process optimization method for metallic components in the industry.

Posted by UNIVERSIDAD DE BURGOSResponsive · Innovative Products and Technologies · Spain

Summary of the technology

The vast majority of metal products in the industrial level are obtained from sheet metal forming, which are used in a diversity of applications, from car bodies, appliances and planes, together with beverage packaging.
In order to define the final design and structure of a stamped component there are two fundamental steps: the manufacturing process to perform the part and the structural simulation to overcome the requirements for performance specifications.
The University of Burgos has patented procedure for the design and manufacturing of cold stamped metal part components that establishes an interconnection between the process simulation and the structural simulation during the development of the stamped components, so the mechanical properties of the material are modified in function of the predefined level got in each zone of the component.

New and innovative aspects

The methodology developed improve the correlations numerical-experimental obtained by structural simulation programs currently used:

  1. Reducing the difference between the simulation data and manufactured elements.
  2. Optimizing - at start-up time - the process manufacturing for a new components and in materials used for the manufacture of parts.

Main advantages of its use

All the programs currently used in the market do not take into account the mechanical properties in function of the level of predeformation attained during the component stamping.

The main advantage is that this procedure controls and defines the optimal method of transferring the deformation results (produced during the simulation of the stamping process) to the structural simulation programs.

It is also defined a working methodology, applicable at the industry, to estimate by simulation the structural rigidity of the stamped components.

Specifications

The product is a methodology that incorporates data processing software mainly applied to the development of metallic products obtained by cold stamping.

Applications

The users for: car bodies, household appliances; aircraft, beverage containers

Intellectual property status

Protected by patent P201630414

Current development status

In use, test results are available.

Desired business relationship

Commercial agreement; License agreement; Technical cooperation: further development; Technical cooperation: testing new applications; Technical cooperation: adaptation to specific needs
