Stamping & Material Utilization Guidelines for Designers

1-Day Course

Stamping and Material Utilization Guidelines
The objective of this course is to understand the guidelines for designing formable, material efficient stampings. This course provides many examples of experienced based rules that result in fewer engineering changes and panels with less scrap and higher material utilization. It also includes detailed breakdowns on the common methods of how blanks are nested for higher yield ratios. This is an essential course for any Product Designer/Engineer that is involved with the design process of outer and inner panels at an OEM or Tier I level.
