About The Workshop

Processing of AHSS steels is still challenging. Process variability is very large and the real source is not well known. Therefore, TIER1s and OEMs need to understand how upstream processes (precuts production) influence the final forming and cutting operations.
The objective of FLATBEND has been to boost the productivity of the AHSS stamping processes by developing disruptive roll levelling techniques and new model based control strategies for forming facilities, taking into account material fluctuations and initial residual stresses of the precuts.
In the webinar, project partners will present the main results and products developped during the last 3 years and you will have the opportunity to interact with experts of blanking and stamping facilities that are used for the processing of AHSS.
This project has received funding from the European Union's under the European Union's Research Fund for Coal and Steel research programme, funding scheme RFCS-RPJ (Research project 800730)
