Optiform – Optimized online process monitoring to improve characteristics of a stamping process for high-strength steel during hot forming
Goal of the project: to gain information about the behaviour of components and raw materials during forming processes via acoustic emission (HFIM). This project startet April 1st, 2016 and will end March 31st, 2018. Partner of QASS: Institute for forming technology and light weight construction (IUL) at Technical University of Dortmund. This project is funded by european funds for regional development (EFRE NRW).
Starting dimension for this project are acoustic emission waves. The measuring device records these emissions directly at the tool. The emissions (sound waves that travel through solid bodies) are detected by piezoceramic sensors. This specialised method is known as High-Frequency-Impulse-Measurement (HFIM).
