Project: Sheet-metal forming tools surfaces improvement - research and development

The project is focused on developement and verifying a new advanced technology of sheet-metal forming tools surfaces improvement in order to obtain better performances, lower costs and lower environmental impacts of sheet-metal parts production processes. The attention is paid to issue of stamping and metal spinning tools and its application in metal forming processes of different challenging materials, such as Al-alloy, Mg-alloy, Ni-alloy, duplex and super-duplex stainless steels. It aims to demonstrate the technical, economical and environmental feasibility of advanced forming tool surfaces treatment by laser micro-structuring (texturing) and hydrostatic ball-burnishing applied to improve the stability of forming processes.
