(FTI), the world’s leading developer of software solutions for the design, simulation, and costing of sheet metal components, will be hosting training courses at Hexagon’s annual conference, HxGN LIVE, in Las Vegas, NV. In addition to its “best-in-class solutions”, FTI offers an extensive curriculum of industry hands-on Metal Stamping and Welding training courses that are developed and delivered by industry experts.  

The following courses will be available at HxGN LIVE 2017:  

Basic Formability; June 13-15, 2017. The objective of this course is to understand the inputs into a stamping operation and how to interpret the results. The effects of parameters such as geometry, material properties, press curves, and binder & blank holder capabilities are thoroughly discussed. It teaches the fundamentals of analyzing a part by understanding its markings and how to evaluate its severity.  
Stamping of Aluminium Panels; June 16, 2017. Learn the differences in formability and manufacture of aluminum stampings in comparison to steel stampings. This course provides an overview of the mechanical properties of the various alloys, product design guidelines, and the manufacturing/tooling conditions which must be considered to ensure quality production of Aluminum Stampings. It is primarily focused on stampings produced from 5xxx and 6xxx series alloys.
