AutoForm’s HotForming & Accuracy Expert: Intaek Lee


Introducing Intaek Lee

The digital process twin is true insurance. My vision is to help OEMs establish their smart engineering processes using a physics-based model that allows the assessment and control, and prevention of the volatility, of the engineered quality.” Intaek Lee, Product Manager, AutoForm


Supporting digital product development processes:

  • Digital product verification of manufacturing process engineering following a process approach for risk assessment and control.
  • Digital manufacturing validation of BiW stamping and assembly.
  • Creation Steps of physics-based digital twins.

Digital accuracy campaign:

  • AutoForm Accuracy Footprint and Pareto Principle as models for AutoForm’s strategy.
  • Manufacturing process engineering-centric architecture for qualified data creation.
  • Physics-based engineering system removed from the document-centric system.
