material forming

Due to the requirements to reduce the part weights in automotive manufacuring significantly, the use of lightweight materials such as aluminium, magnesium and high-strength steels becomes more and more important. Unfortunately, these materials are often connected with a limited cold formability. To extend their application in car manufacturing, it is essential to identify strategies which make an improvement of the forming behavior of these materials possible. The use of elevated temperatures in forming operations represents a potential solution approach.
