AHSS materials added to die design, forming software database

April 14, 2009

AutoForm now includes material data for a number of SSAB advanced high-strength steels (AHSSs) in its software systems for die design and sheet metal forming simulation.

SSAB is the first carbon steel supplier to be included in the database. Among the AHSS materials presented in the software are hot-rolled, cold-rolled, and zinc-coated steel grades.
