R & D - Centre for Analysis and Optimization of Metal forming Process (SonaMETFORM)

The different types of Metal forming processes are Extrusion process, sheet metal forming, wire drawing, deep drawing, forging and rolling process. Presently we are concentrating on the Extrusion process. Extrusion is the process by which a block of metal is reduced in cross section by forcing it to flow through a die orifice under high pressure.
The main focus areas are Metal forming, Analysis and Optimization using advanced techniques.

Vision

  • To contribute to the society through excellence in scientific and technical education and research in metlaforming and its optimization.

Objectives

  • To Design and Analysis of Extrusion dies, Process sequence optimization using Deform 3D software
  • To apply Non-traditional optimization techniques like Genetic Algorithm, Simulated Annealing Algorithm for die design.
  • To design and analyse race car profile using CFD software.
