Sheet Metal Training


To provide a fundamental understanding of sheet metal stamping. It gives an insight into the manufacturing and processing of sheet metal in the industry. The basic principles of stamping tool design, sheet metal behavior during stamping and the different methods of evaluating defects are introduced. Students are also exposed to the state of the art computer based approach to stamping design and analysis.
