Folding-shearing

4

Technology Description

The process applies the mechanics of spinning to sheet metal forming. It involves first folding a sheet along its axis and then drawing it in a way that reduces its width without reducing its average thickness. If proven, the technology could have potential to cut metal scrappage from process like car body manufacturing by up to two-thirds.

Relevance for Net Zero

The technology has good potential to considerably reduce forming losses from sheet metal, but is still at an early stage of development.
