Sheet metal forming - consulting


Deakin University has the ability to run small scale formability testing on new materials, using the formability lab. This includes completing Forming Limit Curves to ISO 12004 standard. Deakin University has portable strain analysis equipment to measure strains on a sheet metal part, this can be used to identify problem areas in stamped components.
