[VIDEO] Keeler on Springback

The improved capabilities the Advanced High-Strength Steels bring to the automotive industry do not create new forming problems. However, the increase in strength magnifies the problems already existing with any higher strength steel. These concerns include higher loads on presses and tools, greater energy requirements, and increased need for springback compensation and control. In this video, Dr. Stuart Keeler, Sc.D., Mechanical Metallurgy, developer of the Forming Limit Diagram and Technical Editor of the WorldAutoSteel Advanced High-Strength Steels Application Guidelines, among many career achievements, unplugs and explains the Springback issue. Advanced High-Strength Steels Application Guidelines are available for free download here.
