Manufacturing and Materials - P18311998


Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) are now commonly used in automotive body structural applications. The high strength of AHSS is attractive to reduce mass in the automotive body through reduction in thickness. Strength supports improvements in safety requirements so that mass increases are minimized.

This course reviews the definition and properties of Advanced High Strength Steels (AHSS) and covers several common applications in automotive body structures. In addition, key manufacturing areas including stamping and welding are addressed to demonstrate the increased challenges as compared to lower strength steel grades. Troubleshooting of typical engineering and production problems completes the seminar to leave attendees with tools to help design more robust engineering solutions to AHSS applications. LEARNING OBJECTIVES By attending this seminar, you will be able to: • Define AHSS grades and describe general properties of AHSS • Identify potential applications for AHSS • Describe key manufacturing processing issues • Assimilate tools for trouble shooting part issues WHO SHOULD ATTEND This course is designed for Automotive Body Engineers, Die Engineers, Designers, Manufacturing Plant Personnel, New Hires in the Steel Industry, Supervisors, Planners, and others who would like to decrease vehicle weight through the use of AHSS. CONTENT HIGHLIGHTS • Background/Overview of AHSS • Product Applications and Design Considerations • Stamping Tooling • Die Try-Out • Hot Stamping Overview • Roll Forming • Welding / Joining • Case Studies
