By fundamental research on and development of processes for cold and hot sheet metal forming of Alloy 718 and HAYNES® 282®, this project shall result in that a few hand-picked SME with different experiences within processing of sheet materials can further develop their processes for product and process development. The project gather competence from the Swedish aero engine industry, acknowledged R&D within forming processes, FE-modelling and SME with experience of forming.
The aims of the project are:
- Further development of effective methodologies for thermo-mechanical material characterisation for FE-analyses of cold and hot sheet metal forming in superalloys. Simulation driven development of forming processes suitable for production of components in which resultant geometry and properties are secured.
- Development work where SME take necessary steps, to produce desired sheet metal components in superalloys for GKN. A prototype component are manufactured, assembled and evaluated in close collaboration with on-going research projects at GKN.
