Abstract [en]

During the past years, large efforts have been made at Volvo Cars to establish a scientific and systematic approach to selection of die materials, hardening methods and surface treatments/coatings. These efforts were initiated, since both new higher strength sheet materials and new die materials with better performance were introduced. Both these higher strength sheet materials and higher performance die materials needed to be industrialized. At the same time, the die manufacturing and maintenance costs must be reduced. A relationship must also be established between the die materials, hardening methods and surface treatments/coatings selected on one side and the targeted volume sizes on the other. In this paper, some of the industrial cases studied at Volvo Cars will be presented. This study is, however, not completed yet The dies described in this paper (along with other dies) have been and will be monitored continuously. The authors have chosen to focus on the technology rather than the economy, particularly since the primary purpose of this paper is to share information with other technicians and discuss the feasibility of different technical solutions. Six blanking/trimming dies and seven stamping (forming) dies are presented in this paper.
