IN THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY, to improve vehicle safety and reduce fuel consumption, manufacturing of lightweight body parts from ultrahigh-strength steels (UHSS) is rapidly increasing. Forming of UHSS at room temperature is limited by low formability and considerable springback. Therefore, hot stamping is accepted as a viable alternative solution and widely used
“Hot stamping is a non-isothermal forming process for sheet metals, where forming and quenching take place in the same forming step”. This process takes advantage of low flow stress of boron alloyed steel (22MnB5) in austenitic phase at elevated temperature and allows the manufacturing of parts with ultrahigh strength, minimum spring back, and reduced sheet thickness.
