Sheet metal forming is one of the most important manufacturing processes to obtain metal parts for almost every industrial production sector: transport, machinery, home appliances, food, cosmetics, energy, chemical, etc. The automotive and aerospace industries are driving the growth of the…
FormPlanet project aims to develop and demonstrate and integrated ecosystem (open innovation test bed) offering novel testing methodologies to characterise sheet metal properties, predict part performance and prevent production loses to the sheet metal forming industries, tackling the upcoming challenges in formability and part quality assessment.
The project will promote a wide usage of high strength sheet materials while reducing production costs and time-to-market for sheet products in different industrial end-use sectors.
Start:January 2019 – End: December 2021 – 36 months
