Lab for validation and optimization of cold forging processes
The lab, located in Miguel Altuna vocational training institute, includes facilities and different equipment to validate and /or optimize the fabrication processes of components manufactured in cold forging. The design concept is first validated by FEM simulation. Then, there are equipments to carry out real experiments where different variables can be monitorized and measured: loads, effect of lubricants , material flow, friction conditions, suitability of the tooling set, part’s transfers, etc. The trials are semi industrial so that the results are comparable with real production.
By means of the FEM softwares Forge and Simufact the influence of multiple parameters in the manufacture of forged components is studied,
