The GTMA and Vero Software are co-hosting a sheet metal event for the automotive industry, featuring advances in materials, along with a number of processes from right across the supply chain.
Demonstrations and information on display at the event, which is free to attend, will be provided by industry OEMs and Tier 1 leaders such as EDM and High Speed machinery manufacturer Agie Charmilles, press toolmaker Accura Geometric, and other vital links in the automotive supply chain.
The keynote presentation is from British Formula One™ manufacturer Lotus F1 Team.
Vero and 3D digitising and verification specialists Central Scanning will be demonstrating how VISI’s CAD technology can be used to manage complex springback or sheet metal deformation based on user-defined driven geometry, Finite Element Analysis, or laser scanning results.
Dutton Simulation are looking at costing and feasibility methods for upfront analysis, while high-strength steel producer SSAB’s presentation on cold forming applications, will address the question: “is it hardness which governs die life length?”
Delegates will also see presentations on incremental sheet metal forming from the GTMA’s Manufacturing Resource Centre; the essential role Vero’s SMIRT software plays in the automotive die stamping industry; and from Accura Geometric.
A number of other industry players will have table top “hotdesk” exhibitions at the event, including Foregone Solutions, Indysoft, Blum Novotest, Roemheld, Mantech/Werth, Delcam, IMSM, Trac Measurement and Omega Plastics.
This special automotive event will be held at Agie Charmilles’ technology centre in Coventry on July 5th where Agie will also be providing machinery demonstrations.
GTMA CEO Julia Moore says: “The GTMA works closely with its members in the supply chain linking our members with industry’s OEMs and Tier 1 to support, inspire and share best practice up and down the supply chain. We’ve held a number of joint events with leading and innovative members like Vero, who make a major contribution to the industry.”
