Seminar on Advanced Metal Forming

Date: 26 Sep 2013 - 26 Sep 2013

Venue: SIMTech Auditorium, Tower Block, Level 3

The objective of this seminar is to update participants with recent trends in advanced metal forming. An overview in the following areas will be presented in this seminar. Key trends, new developments as well as established capabilities will be presented and discussed in the Seminar. The participants will also gain more knowledge on process development process and productivity improvement through CAE design but also deeper insights into precision metal forming. SIMTech Technologies in Combined Stamping and Forging technologies for near net shape forming of high value added components and Spin Forming of high strength materials will also be highlighted in the seminar.

Focus areas will be:

  • Key trends in advance  high precision metal forming processes
  • Advances in metal forming simulation
  • Combined stamping and forging to produce multi thickness, high value added components.
  • Spin forming of high strength materials.

SIMTech is undertaking various initiatives to help local industry in the area of metal forming.  These include a series of training courses (funded and certified by WDA) as well as planned Collaborative Industry Projects on in high value and low cost metal forming processes to be launched in 2013. The Seminar will provide the opportunity to hear from participants and collect invaluable feedback for SIMTech when the upcoming project scopes are being defined.
