Hot Stamping Processing Experiments of Quenchable Boron Steel
The quenchable boron steel is a novel type of ultra high strength steel used for automotive parts so as to reduce the weight of the whole automobile. The hot stamping processing experiments for bending parts were studied. The influence of the hot stamping processing parameters, such as the heating temperature, the heat holding time and the cooling water flow velocity, on the mechanics properties and microstructure of the hot stamping parts is obtained. And then the optimal ranges of these parameters are determined, which provides a basis for the control of the hot stamping process applied in complicated shape parts’ production.
