    Workshop A: Tribology in Sheet Metal Forming Processes
    Coordinator: Dr. Javad Hazrati

    Co-Organizers: Dr. Lander Galdos, Dr. Dirk Drees

    Description: Sheet metal forming (SMF) is one of the most important technologies in manufacturing industry in particular; automotive, aerospace and packaging. In sheet metal forming, relative motion of the tool and workpiece during production makes tribology (friction, wear and lubrication) of the utmost importance. The tribological performance in SMF is influenced by several parameters at the micro- and macro levels (local contact conditions: surface texture, contact pressure, temperature and lubrication). For optimum process design, improving formability of sheet metal and finally control of tribology, a better understanding of tribology and an accurate prediction of friction in sheet metal forming is necessary. In the current workshop, different aspects of tribology in cold/hot stamping processes are included such as tribological effects on process modeling and applied plasticity, modeling friction and wear, tribological characterization methods, surface engineering and control of tribology in SMF.

    The current workshop will be also organized as the final event of the ASPECT project, financed from the INTERREG North-West Europe programme – and will showcase the developed technology during the project. The aim of ASPECT was to develop advanced simulations technology to account for temperature increase and adaptive control systems to adjust the machine settings during the start-up of the production line.
