Fekete says, "The issue you run into is that you may have a stamping machine that can make a part with HSS and now you put in an AHSS that has the same amount of formability, so you can make the part, but the press loads might go up significantly because the material itself has higher strength.
The results presented in this paper have shown that at the deep drawing of a tailor-welded blank, the main parameters concerning formability (specific strains and thinning) and energy balance are very close to those specific for a monoblock part with the same thickness as the TWB.
The company stated that it is the first firm to integrate Ultra High Tensile Strength Steel with High Formability.
