Project ID: G1RD-CT-2001-00509
Finanziato nell'ambito di: FP5-GROWTH
Paese: Germany

PBH system

Objective/Potential applications
The result of the work is novel system providing minimised average blank holder force, optimised frequency and amplitude. Application in automotive, aircraft and consumers articles industry.

End-user
Manufacturer of metal sheet parts of above mentioned industries.

Main Innovations
The system shows clear advantageous compared with a conventional process when drawing stainless steel and high strength steel on the drawing of an oil pan. In the special case this resulted in: material reduction: the material thickness in oil pan production could reduced by 30%; productivity: the drawing deep could be increased by 25%, so deep drawing steps could be saved; product quality: the part strength was increased by increasing the strength of the weakest edge by 4,5%.

Analysis of market
Estimated market for NEFF from 2006:
Installation size 2000kN, ca. 370t€/press (each 2 per year)
Installation size 4000kN, ca. 500t€/press (each 2 per year)
Installation size 6000kN, ca. 800t€/press (each 2 per year)

Potential barriers
When reaching the project targets no barriers should limit the exploitation.
