  • Orients the design of the product towards production
  • Allows choosing the best designs
  • Improves the forming of the components
  • Reduces defects and controls costs


The training course is divided into a theoretical part and a practical part:

  • 1st and 2nd day: first of all we address plasticity concepts, analysis of the forming cycle, die design, hot forming presses, experiment design and process control
  • 3rd day: afterwards we examine a die proposed by the companies followed by a classroom discussion about the adopted design options, evaluating positive and negative aspects, criticality of the current forming process and definition of a list of improvement interventions for the die and production process.
  • 4th day: in conclusion, we analyse the results obtained through virtual sampling with DEFORM software for the forming simulation.
  • Intended for: Die makers and designers
  • Speakers: Teachers from the University of Brescia and Ecotre Technical Department
  • Duration: 4 days, from Monday to Friday
  • Time: From 9:00 am to 12:30pm and from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
