Early Stage Geometrical Deviation Optimization – An Automotive Example for Sheet Metal Parts
The recent emphasis on car styling caused tolerance requirements for sheet metal parts in the automotive industry to increase. In addition, the new materials (steel and alloy) have a different deviation behavior around the springback after the deep-drawing process. In the early design phases a product can be optimized to fulfill tight tolerance specifications. This work shows the simulation background and the resulting optimization methodology.
