Metal Forming Process Selection is designed to provide learners with a better understanding of how to select metal forming processes based on part requirements and other important variables. This course provides learners with a greater understanding of the various processes utilized for forming sheet metal, the advantages and disadvantages of each process, and important factors such as part volume, material transportation, and packaging constraints.

Learning Objectives
  • Recall the common blanking and metal forming processes.
  • Understand the typical product design expectations.
  • Recognize the important design factors for part manufacturing.
  • Recall the important factors that determine design for manufacturability (DFM), design for assembly (DFA), and design for serviceability (DFS).
  • Understand the distinction between part piece price and part cost.
