The presented study applied the state of the art in roller hemming simulation on a car body assembly. Corner areas with changing flange lengths are always challenging in case of reaching the quality demands. Thus, the numerical results like e.g. springback, hem thickness, rollin and hem geometry are compared to experimental results. It is shown that the quality of prediction
depends on the system stiffness of the roller hemming device, the geometrical contour of the car body assembly and the consideration of steps in the process chain like stamping and flanging. Finally, the gained cognitions point out challenges for future research in this topic.
