Innovative wear test methodologies for the simulation of in service behaviour of tool steels

Objective

The tool wear amount is essentially due to sharpness of die radii, lubrication, surface finish, galling effects, thickness of the forming sheet and severity of the forming operations.

The present tribological devices are not always reliable in forecasting the wear forming tool life, due to the difficulty in understanding the correct influence of the numerous parameters involved.

This project aims at developing new testing methodologies to predict the wear behaviour of steel tools in the field of cold forming and deep drawing production, by means of correlating experimental data and wear effects from service operations.
