FormingWorld is the leading online information portal for the simulation of sheet metal forming and BiW assembly and is translated into both Japanese and Chinese. Our website covers all aspects of digital planning and engineering throughout the entire process chain for complex sheet metal parts for the automotive and aerospace industry.

We especially focus on breaking down silo structures by educating readers on the benefits of full digitalization of stamping and BiW development. Through our content, you will gain insights into seamless information and data flow, and integration of Industry 4.0 standards.

Our readers are tool makers, OEMs, value engineers, planners and process engineers, who bring complex sheet metal parts from the initial concept to mass production. Enjoy reading expert insights on a wide range of related topics, such as feasibility evaluation of stamping designs, evaluation of alternative production concepts, hot forming, cost minimization and tool compensation issues etc. the list goes on.

This site is hosted by AutoForm yet represents software developments and technological insights that are valid for all simulation brands. Now YOU can become informed on the latest innovations and trends concerning the greater industry at this one authoritative site.

A special feature at FormingWorld is our ‘Customer Stories’ section featuring case examples of the successful application of planning and simulation software, show-casing real results achieved by tool makers and OEMs around the world. Case examples include the ‘one loop tryout’ from Japan, a 78% reduction of parts used thanks to simulation, and ‘8 out of 9 dies made in a single tryout’ etc.

This website is for the entire industry and we welcome guest posts and regular contributions if you have relevant content. If you’d like to contribute a blog post, please refer to our guideline.
