How much of your time is it worth to
  • reduce tryouts,

In today’s manufacturing, its common for customers to request components formed from among the newer grades of steel, or from aluminum. Forming Advanced High Strength Steel and Aluminum presents new and different challenges from the days of mild steel, or even from High Strength Low Alloy steels. With these challenges comes opportunity.

Experience was once sufficient to accept a new component. Aluminum and today’s newer steels demand you understand their behaviors under the stress of forming.

A few hours a month learning about material fundamentals and forming technologies can support your profitability, prevent production disruptions, and provide satisfied customers. 4M is happy to support you on your journey.
