QForm at Confederation of British Metalforming event on 29th of July in the UK

Event: Forging technology elements that determine final part quality and die life
Date: Wednesday 29 June 2016, 9.30 – 16.30, National Metalforming Centre, UK

We invite you to join us for a one day event to launch CBM’s ambition of supporting forging members gain a competitive advantage through process technology. A combined day where we pull together the influencers on product quality and die-life, giving examples of latest achievements in lubrication, die material and in-press measurements together with practical demonstrations of how simulation software can identify problems in the product and die before you touch any metal.


  • Overview of main reasons of premature die failure (brittle and thermal cracks, low cycle fatigue, abrasive wear).
  • Forging technology analysis based on material flow simulation with prediction of die stress, temperature and deflection.
  • Use of simulation to extend die life.
  • Speakers from experienced suppliers.

This is a free to attend event but registration is essential. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

Predicting of a low cycle fatigue crack in the die after hot forging of 284 parts that is close to practical observation.
