The optimization of sheet metal forming processes, considering the right material choice and tool optimization, is a decisive factor for competitiveness, particularly in the automotive industry.
The optical 3D forming analysis system ARGUS supports such optimization processes with precise results of the forming distribution of components. The results from the ARGUS system provide full-field information about:
All results are presented in a fine resolution mesh created from the determination of the 3D coordinates and reflecting the surface of the measured object. In the Forming Limit Diagram the measurement results are compared to the material characteristics of the blank (Forming Limit Curve) to determine critical forming areas.
The optical forming analysis using ARGUS has become a proven tool for evaluating forming processes. The unique possibility to measure complex sheet metal parts with a high scanning density opens up new aspects for the verification of forming simulations.
ARGUS is the solution for...
ARAMIS is the unique solution delivering complete 3D surface, displacement and strain results where a large number of traditional measuring devices are required (strain gauges, LVDTs extensometers ...).
The same system setup is used for multiple applications and can be easily integrated in existing testing environments.
