Engineering Research Center for Net Shape Manufacturing (ERC/NSM)

(last updated: March 2014)

The ERC/NSM is one of the leading university associated groups in North America conducting R&D and providing education in metal forming (stamping, sheet & tube hydroforming, forging) since 1986. In addition to training students, we conduct R&D projects for government agencies, e.g. National Science Foundation and for a Consortium of companies worldwide as well as individual companies, on a confidential basis

TO ACCESS VARIOUS AREAS OF EXCELLENCE AND THE CENTER FOR PRECISION FORMING, PLEASE CLICK ON THE LINKS ABOVE OR ON THE SIDE BAR.

Please review our R&D activities in (click on the titles below for a detailed description of the topics)

  • Stamping including Sheet Hydroforming (material characterization / die design and optimization / friction, lubrication and wear / process simulation / equipment characteristics and selection / bending and springback)
  • Proprietary Stamping R&D is also conducted for a group of companies at the Center for Precision Forming (CPF). To review the titles of ongoing studies please click on        www.cpforming.org
  • Precision Cold, Warm and Hot Forging (material properties / process design and simulation / die materials and coatings / friction and lubrication)
  • Tube Hydroforming (determination of tube properties / process simulation and optimization / lubricant evaluation)
