Standard operations: tensile test, flow curves, FLC, Erichsen, bulge test, hole expansion
Extended operations: Gleeble, Diabolo, shear tension, non-linear strain paths

However, traditional shearing reveal some process-related weaknesses that can cause difficulties during the ongoing processing of sheet metal components or require some rework. Conventional shearing, for example, can cause the formation of burrs. In this way, a local solidification of the material is caused in the cutting area during the process which negatively affects the forming properties of the cutting edge.

In order to generate simple solutions, the Forschungsgesellschaft Umformtechnik mbH performs research that is based on the development of special methods.
