Forming Limit Curve

 

Forming Limit Curve

 

The Process

Forming Limit Curves (FLCs) are widely adopted within the automotive industry as a means to assess the formability of sheets of various metallic alloys. As new and more exotic alloys are being considered for application in automotive the sector, it’s of increasing importance to understand the ability to form them into typical components. At WMG, we have adopted a robust experimental approach to deriving FLCs in accordance with internationally recognised standards whilst also developing a more fundamental understanding of the underlying material’s behaviour.

 

The Benefits

The combination of the full suite of characterisation techniques employed at WMG allows us to quickly gather the information required for a materials assessment under simulation which can facilitate faster adoption of new and exciting alloys.
