Circle Grid Analysis and Thickness Strain Analysis

By |2018-06-27T19:38:33-04:00Jun 26, 2018||0 Comments

Thinning and Circle Grid (Surface) Strain Analyses are Engineering Quality tools that can help determine where trouble spots could develop during the production processing of your parts. The forming limit of a given steel is based on the thickness and the strain hardening exponent (n-value). The forming limit for other alloys must be determined experimentally. Knowing these parameters, and their minimum values likely to be encountered in production, it is [...]

Stamping 101 – Material Selection

By |2018-06-27T19:47:09-04:00May 31, 2018||0 Comments

Abstract Sheet metal production isn't much different than baking a cake. It requires the right ingredients, added at the right time and processed at the right temperature for the right amount of time. Literally hundreds of different types of metals are available, each with it's own blend of physical, chemical, and surface properties and characteristics. Pure metals are relatively soft and malleable. When you move a carpet, it takes alot [...]
