Sheet metal forming is currently a fundamental manufacturing process, used to produce components for several industrial sectors. Especially under automotive and aerospace driving force, sheet steels with improved mechanical performances are increasingly demanded to meet lightweight and cost reduction targets.…
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
