Binder Design for Automotive Body Panels

The objective of this paper is to introduce a method for producing effective binder designs for sheet metal forming of automotive body panels. The fundamentals steps of die design are discussed as well as methods for checking the developability of binder surfaces and the application of a binder simulator and FEM process simulation. A front fender and a door panel have been used to illustrate the methodology.
