Master trends of precision cutting such as e.g. the use of environmentally friendly lubricants or independent agile process changes. You will understand the interaction between process, tool, press, plant periphery as well as tribology and you will be able to identify process anomalies in time with statistical analysis (Six Sigma) or numerical methods (FEM).
▶ Process technology and metallurgic basics
▶ FE simulation and modeling, tribology
▶ Practical application with a Feintool XFT2500
▶ Industry 4.0-supported process control in the machine shop
Group of Participants
Experts, executives, lateral entrants with at least one year of relevant professional experience in the areas of precision cutting technology, stamping or bending technology or tool construction
Fine blanking, due to the high quality of the cutting edge and the according energy and resource efficiency, is of great importance for production technology. Economy and precision are the two primary characteristics of this technology. To further extend the advantage over alternative technologies, precision cutting enterprises have to service current trends: These include ultra-high strength sheet material as well as the digitalization of the value chain.
In four days of attendance, basic lectures will build up basic knowledge, which will be deepened through case studies, exercises in small groups as well as the practical application in the machine hall.
