Industry-Leading Formability Training

Assessing, stabilizing, and improving die performance depends on a systematic structure based on the formability system. The foundation of the formability system is formability analysis that uses scientific evaluations of die capabilities and root-causes of die issues to create die improvement plans that are followed to completion.

This foundation depends on formability analysts to be formability subject matter experts (SME) that perform formability analysis, conduct panel reviews, and aid structured problem solving in the pressroom by determining key inputs and outputs to the system and reducing their variation to achieve a more robust stamping process. The formability analysts are responsible for applying, demonstrating, teaching, coaching, and promoting the use of the formability system that focuses on:

  1. Fixing formability problems (die improvement & recipe optimization)
  2. Keeping them fixed (Preventative Maintenance)
  3. Supporting new model launch (die robustness)
  4. Cost savings (blank size & shape optimization)

The Phoenix Group offers comprehensive formability analysis training to equip analysts with the necessary skills and knowledge for successful analysis and optimization of product manufacturability. By providing hands-on training and practical exercises, The Phoenix Group ensures that formability analysts gain proficiency in identifying and addressing formability challenges. Through their training, professionals acquire the expertise needed to optimize product designs, reduce development time and costs, and enhance production efficiency. The Phoenix Group’s formability analysis training prepares analysts to tackle real-world manufacturing scenarios effectively.
