  • Publication number: 20190151923
    Abstract: A method for producing a formed body includes providing a round or pre-formed semi-finished product of a steel material, and heating the semi-finished product at least in regions to a first temperature. The method further includes forming a hub on the semi-finished product warm at least in regions, for generating a preform having an upper geometric element. The method further includes heating or re-heating the preform having an upper geometric element at least in regions to a second temperature, and forming a bell on the preform having an upper geometric element warm at least in regions, for generating a preform having an upper and at least one lower geometric element. The method further includes heating or re-heating the preform at least in regions to a third temperature, and profiling the preform warm at least in regions for generating a formed body in a third operative step.

  • Patent number: 10124384
    Abstract: The invention relates to a device and method for producing at least partially closed profiles from metal sheet, having a first tool part, a second tool part, and at least one supporting core. The insertion movement of the supporting core between the bending jaws is limited by a stop and, in its insertion position limited by the stop, protrudes with respect to the bending jaws in the direction of the die, in that the supporting core is arranged on a carrier that is movable relative to the die, and in that the bending jaws are assigned at least one displacement element connected rigidly thereto, the displacement element coming into contact with the carrier when the bent metal sheet portion engages around the supporting core.

  • Publication number: 20180236521
    Abstract: A method for producing a shaped part may include providing a first layer consisting of a first sheet metal material and at least a second layer consisting of a second sheet metal material, forming a preliminary composite comprising the first layer and the at least second layer, plating the preliminary composite, and forming the preliminary composite to obtain the shaped part using a flow turning, compression or deep drawing method. The plating may be done before or during the forming process. At least one of the first layer or the second layer may be heated for the plating and/or the forming. The shaped part may be formed by compressing the preliminary composite with a pressing body, and the pressing body may be moved parallel or perpendicular to an axis of symmetry during the compression.

  • Publication number: 20170066036
    Abstract: A method for the production of a closed hollow profile for a vehicle axle including the following steps: a) provision of a board made out of a sheet of metal, wherein the board has at least a length in a longitudinal direction and at least a width in a transverse direction, b) forming of the board, creating an open profile with a channel running in a longitudinal direction of the board, c) forming the lateral surfaces of the board, creating a hollow profile with a circumference and a longitudinal gap and d) joining together the longitudinal gap.
