  • Patent number: 9327331
    Abstract: A tool and method of hemming a panel wherein the tool engages a flange to apply a compressive force with a stop initially preventing a distal end of the flange from moving inwardly. The hemming tool bends the intermediate portion of the flange between the flange bend and the distal end toward the panel. The stop is withdrawn to allow the flange to be progressively formed toward the panel until the distal end is aligned with the intermediate portion.
    Type: Grant
    Filed: October 31, 2014
    Date of Patent: May 3, 2016

  • Publication number: 20150047178
    Abstract: A hemming tool for forming a hem securing an outer panel to an inner panel. The hemming tool includes a hemming die that has a first portion of a forming surface with a first coefficient of friction and a second portion that has a second coefficient of friction that is greater than the first portion. A flange on the outer panel is initially engaged by the first surface to begin forming the hem flange toward the inner panel. The flange is engaged by the second hemming surface to continue forming the flange toward the inner panel. A method of hemming a sheet metal assembly including an inner and an outer panel is also disclosed that utilizes the hemming die that has a forming surface with a second coefficient of friction that is greater than the first portion to reduce flange creep and roll-in during a hemming operation.
