Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) – MetalForming LIVE: How Newer Materials (Advanced Steels, Aluminum Grades etc.) Impact Metal Formers
July 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
3-Part Online Event | July 13, 20 and 27
This summer, the pages of MetalForming magazine come to life via a three-part online event: MetalForming LIVE. Tune in for free to hear MetalForming’s three expert columnists, Pete Ulintz, Danny Schaeffler, Ph.D., and Eren Billur, Ph.D, host 90-min. roundtable discussions on three topics of critical importance to metal formers. The topics: newer materials, progressive-die simulation and press-stroke optimization. They’ll be joined on the online stage by metal formers dispensing their expertise gleaned from extensive experience with the chosen topics. And, attendees can participate in lively Q&A discussions.
Part 1 of 3: July 13
Danny Schaeffler provides an overview of this roundtable discussion, focusing on how new sheet materials (i.e., aluminum alloys and advanced high strength steels, etc.) impact die maintenance, die design and die processing. Following, our expert panel will go in-depth on challenges and solutions, with attendees learning:
- How to better approach the stamping process (cold forming vs. warm forming) of newer materials
- How to plan for and execute new die-maintenance strategies and techniques
- How to alter your die designs to accommodate these new materials.
