Post-Forming Operations

Chapter

Abstract

Once an automotive part is formed and quenched, it may be required to trimmed/pierced, shot blasted (depending on the coating) and then welded to subassemblies and assemblies. It is essential to understand all these steps of manufacturing. After each and every step, quality control—both online and offline—has to be done. This chapter discusses the so-called “Post-Forming Operations”.
