Defects prediction

Our users, DMM International Ltd., have used QForm to solve their forging problems.

The company had used a non-standard billet with a hole in it that was very difficult to position correctly. As a result of bad positioning a lap would occur on the inner surface of part and only 60% of forged parts were of sufficient quality to be used. The video below shows they also had a very high rate of die wear.

In the second half of video is an example of how they solved their technological problems by means of QForm V8.

  • Now they use a standard billet with no punching operation required and the billet position is not critical
  • Now the lap does not occur even if the workpiece is positioned incorrectly
  • Tool wear is also decreased and distributed evenly along the die impression
