The technological target is to develop a method for design of spring-back compensated moulds based on results of fast spring-in simulation (WP11.1) and to verify this method within WP12 and subsequent WPs.

Advances made in LOCOMACHS

Based on previous target a methodology for design of spring-back-compensated moulds will be developed. Today, mould design is based mostly on subjective experience or 3D simulations showing the behaviour of single critical areas of the part, but not th
