Design and Processing of sheet metal parts - IMTMA/D014

Programme Background

The most widely used metal of choice in Product Design is sheet steel as steel is by far the most abundantly available material of construction. From view points of aesthetic appeal, strength, function of crumple zone, paintability, platability, maintainability, repairability, durability, recyclability and cost, we cannot beat sheet metal. That is the reason why sheet metal is still the material used for the shell of automobiles. The sheet lends itself for manipulation to desired shapes and sizes by pressing processes.

This programme will discuss about design aspects of sheet metal parts as well as its processing.
