Overview of Quick Plastic Forming Technology

Abstract:

Article Preview

General Motors has developed Quick Plastic Forming (QPF) as a hot blow forming process capable of producing aluminum closure panels at high volumes. This technology has been successfully implemented for automotive liftgates and decklids with complex shapes. This talk will review key elements of the QPF process, describe some of the technical achievements realized in this process, and identify areas for future research in process, material, and lubricant development.
