INT-PULS-FORM Résumé de rapport

Project ID: G1RD-CT-2001-00509
Financé au titre de: FP5-GROWTH
Pays: Italy

Sensor equipped tool

Objective/Potential applications
The result is a sensor-equipped tool with special inlays for the drawing of high strength steel.
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
Neff planned to sale 6PBH systems per year. Estimating that for 2-3 applications are running per system 12-18 tools per year could be requested.

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