Master fineblanking trends such as the application of environmentally friendly lubricants or agile process changes on your own. You will understand the interplay of process, tool, press, plant peripherals and tribology. Furthermore, you will be able to identify process anomalies in good time using statistical analysis (Six Sigma) or numerical methods (FEM).
▶ Process technology and basics of metallurgy
▶ FE simulation and modelling, tribology
▶ Practical application on a Feintool XFT2500
▶ Industry 4.0-supported process control in the machine hall
Group of Participants
You are a specialist, manager or lateral entrant with at least one year of relevant professional experience in fineblanking technology, stamping and bending technology or toolmaking.
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.
