R&D Update: Lubrication and galling in stamping of galvanized AHSS - Part III
Forming of galvanized AHSS involves higher contact pressures at the tool-workpiece interface compared to forming mild steel. Under these severe interface conditions, improper selection of lubricants, tool materials and tool coatings may result in high scrap rates and galling in stamping production.. Based on SDT results, polymer-based lubricant with EP additives and water-soluble DFL were found to be most effective, Synthetic lubricants showed also reasonably small frictional responses with a PVD coated die in forming GA coated strips.

Evaluating film lubricants for stamping
The ERC/NSM conducted extensive deep-drawing tests to evaluate various dry film lubricants for several companies. Compared with other commonly used friction tests such as draw bead and twist compression tests, deep drawing emulates realistic friction conditions that exist in stamping operations in terms of the pressure and forming speed interface .

Stamping research gains support
Global competition continues to force the metal forming industry to reduce costs, improve technology, and increase productivity. With these trends in mind, the Ohio State University (OSU) and Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) established in June 2006 the Center for Precision Forming to focus on the needs of the metal forming industry.

Servo press forming applications
A servomotor gives a press slide motion flexibility in terms of accurate speed, motion, and position control. This flexibility produces infinite slide motion variations that may improve part quality and operations such as painting and assembly during one press stroke.
