Cross Die



Cross Die Press


The Process

Following on from the success of the U-Profile tooling to conduct Springback analysis, the Forming team have commissioned a Cross Die toolset to investigate more complex forming modes. Interchangeable dies and controllable gas springs allow for a range of material gauges and process parameters to be considered and their effect on formability assessed.


The Benefits

Once material has been fully characterised by the Forming team, the Simulation group can then model the process on the Cross Die tooling. Conducting physical trials allows for validation of the developed models and also gives greater insight into the formability of a material under a range of processing conditions.
