Automotive AHSS Training
Affecting the application of Advanced High-Strength Steels to part of a vehicle are considerations for Steel Chemistry, Effects of Galvanized Coating, Effects of Process Parameters, Carbon Equivalent, and Liquid Metal Embrittlement (LME). This course will discuss how to address these topics.
A/SP has developed a series of OEM weld repair procedures for common stamping die materials. Each procedure is specific to the stamping process and repair issue. Procedures were created from OEM auto manufacturer input are intended to help in repair and restoration of stamping dies.
Die Weld Repair Procedures
The Auto/Steel Partnership (A/SP) Stamping Tooling Optimization (STO) Team developed a series of OEM weld repair procedures for common stamping die materials. Each procedure is specific to the stamping process (i.e. trim, forming, etc.) and repair issue (i.e. crack repair, edge repair, etc.). The procedures cover the filler material, recommended weld equipment, heat treatment (pre- and post), and applicable process notes. The procedures were created from OEM auto manufacturer input and are intended to help in repair and restoration of stamping dies. A/SP assumes no responsibility for the use of the information.
The AHSS Guidelines provide global best practices for forming and joining AHSS and 3rd Gen Steels. The guidelines enable those who are making automotive structures to master the fundamentals and get up to speed on specific application knowledge. Automotive designers, engineers and press shop personnel can all benefit from the Guidelines as they apply these steels to vehicle manufacturing.
