Spingback - U-profile Tool



The Process

Using tooling which has been specially developed for the PVLT project, we are able to assess the extent to which a material will ‘spring back’ under a number of different processing parameters. Using a unique combination of optical scanning techniques and mathematical processing, the Forming team are able to accurately measure the levels of springback for a unique geometric shape.


The Benefits

Springback is particularly difficult to predict for high strength alloys, and this approach provides an understanding of how these materials will behave in the real world.
