Innovative methods of sheet metal forming tools surfaces improvement - R&D

Basque Country, Spain Catalonia, Spain Slovakia

The project is focused on developement and verifying a new advanced  technology of sheet-metal forming tools surfaces improvement in order to obtain better performances, lower costs and lower environmental impacts of sheet-metal parts production processes. The attention is paid to issue of stamping and metal spinning tools and its application in metal forming processes of different challenging materials, such as Alalloy, Mg-alloy, Ni-alloy, duplex and super-duplex stainless steels. It aims to demonstrate the technical, economical and environmental feasibility of advanced forming tool surfaces treatment by laser microstructuring (texturing) and hydrostatic ball-burnishing applied to improve the stability of forming processes
