Stamping Tooling Optimization

Stamping Tooling Optimization

Stamping Tooling Optimization addresses the need to fully realize the benefits of AHSS, which depends upon the ability to aggressively form, trim and pierce these steels into complex geometries needed for automotive applications. The goal of this project team is to determine cost-effective and durable die materials, surface treatments, coatings and die designs for stamping AHSS by developing and implementing tests that simulate die tool environments and failure modes.
