Influence of the Cut Edge on the Formability of Steel
|Contact:||Dr.-Ing. Christian Löbbe|
The sensitivity of sheared Advanced High-Strength Steels (AHSS) to fail at the sheared edge is a critical problem for the automotive industry.
Development of a Profile Bending Process with Compressive Stress Superposition by Rolling
|Contact:||Juri Martschin M.Sc.|
As part of this NRW patent validation, a process is developed that enables profile bending with compressive stress superposition.
Freeform Bending of Aviation-Relevant Tubular Parts
|Contact:||Stefan Gallus M. Sc.|
In cooperation with PFW Aerospace GmbH, Incremental Tube Forming (ITF) is qualified for the production of aviation-compatible tube structures made of titanium and titanium alloys.
Development of a Technology for Bending U-Profiles
|Contact:||Johannes Gebhard M. Sc.|
Bending of metal profiles is currently restricted to high bending radii and, therefore, bent products are limited to spacious constructions.
Damage in Sheet Metal Bending of Lightweight Profiles
|Funding:||German Research Foundation (DFG)|
|Project:||SFB/TRR188 • Subproject A05|
|Contact:||Rickmer Meya M. Sc.|
Profiles made of high-strength and ultra-high-strength steel materials are often produced by classic bending processes such as air and die bending.
Granular Media-Based Tube Press Hardening
|Funding||German Research Foundation (DFG)|
|Contact||Mike Kamaliev M. Sc.|
Together with DLR (German Aerospace Center), the suitability of granular media as a forming medium for tube expansion at elevated temperatures is investigated in this project.
