Inspection of Sheet Metal Formed Components

Date : 17 to 18 September, 2019

@ 12/5, D1 Block, MIDC Chinchwad, Pune


Stamping and bending allows sheet metal to be produced according to any desired freeform shape. The shape of the mating surfaces is important to obtain a good fit between assembled parts. To ensure that geometry specifications are actually met, freeform surfaces can be verified using many inspection methods depending on the complexity of the feature, the tolerance expectation and the class of the component. Also critical is the positioning and dimensioning of geometric features, such as holes and slots in automotive sheet metal components. Most features either serve as reference locations for part positioning or as attachment points for trim components.

Inspection of Sheet Metal Formed Components is therefore a very important and challenging activity at the Dies Tryout and Proving Stage as well as during the Mass Production Stage.

Understanding the difference between these methods and using the right method for a given component calls for a clear awareness of the merits and demerits of each of these methods.

A good inspector is not only expected to have a clear understanding and ability to interpret the drawing, but also the function of the part in the overall assembly.

Keeping this in view, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturer’s Association (IMTMA) is organizing a Two day Seminar on “Inspection of Sheet Metal Formed Components” on 17-18th Sept 2019 at Pune
