Online Training on Light Weighting : Hot Forming Technology

Focus Areas

  • Need for Light Weighting while improving strength for Automotive Body
  • Advanced High Strength Steels ( AHSS ) and difficulties in using them
  • Introduction to Hot Forming Technology and its metallurgical basis for Steel
  • Equipment and Tools for Hot Forming of Steels
  • Achieving differential properties in same part through Hot Forming
  • Hot Forming of Aluminium and Titanium


With ever tightening requirement of Mileage, Pickup, Emission norms along with Crash Safety norms; there is requirement to use lighter yet stronger material for building Automotive Body. While a vast range of Advanced High Strength Steels have been developed; there are difficulties associated in using them. Hot Forming Technology is one way to get over some of the problems and extend its application window of specifications. There is very limited knowhow available in Indian Industry about Hot Forming, its Press Tools, Equipment, Software and complimentary technology ecosystem to support it.
To give a comprehensive overview on the subject, Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers' Association (IMTMA) is organising a four hour online programme on “Light Weighting : Hot Forming”.

Key Takeaways

  • Applications of AHSS in Automotive
  • Applications of Hot Forming in Automotive
  • Benefits and Pitfalls for using AHSS and Hot Forming
  • Competency Requirements for developing Hot Forming Technology Ecosystem
  • Process and Applications for Hot Forming of Aluminium and Titanium
