Sheet Metal Forming Basics And Analysis

sheet metal forming refers to an new domain of study of material behaviour while underging an forming and shape changing stamping operation. This rquries a pre requiresite understanding of sheet metal design priciples of basic and advanced stamping operation. This also requries a thru understanding of thestamping presses i.e. signle action, double action or tripple actions presses, mechanical and hydraulic presses, etc. thhough it is an extremely exciting domain to make a career it should however be accompanied by main domain of sheet metal design and BIW design. Having the understanding the forming in a classical way and a simulation suite way, greatly enhances the career opportunities of BIW designers Coreautotechniks is presenting an never before contents to prepare engineers to foray into sheet metal forming domain.
