PAM-STAMP - Hotforming


The training covers all essential aspects of virtual process design from early feasibility through final process validation to cyclic quenching to evaluate tool cooling under production conditions. The most important basics for the physical understanding of process and simulation such as heat transfer, temperature-dependent material behavior and phase transformations in steel are explained. Using practical examples, participants learn how to define the entire process from insertion of the blank into the tool to cooling of the component in air. The manufacturability (thinning, wrinkles), hardening (martensite content, phase fractions, Vickers hardness) and finally the final component distortion are evaluated. In the context of a typical feasibility study, the focus is on the rapid definition and modification of the forming process via the tool editor, as well as on tool kinetics and process control with the aid of process macros. In addition, the possibilities of PAM-STAMP for the simulation of components with tailored properties, such as tailored tempering, partial austenitization, partial air cooling, tailored welded blanks, patchwork blanks, depending on the focus of interest of the participants, are presented.
