ASPECT survey on tribological effects during sheet metal forming
Welcome to the survey on tribological aspects in metal forming processes! Your input would help us assess how relevant the prediction and control of tribological influences are for the quality of the forming process.
This survey is part of the activities of the INTERREG NWE project ASPECT – “Advanced Simulation and control of tribology in metal forming Processes for the North-West European Consumer goods and Transport sectors”, coordinated by M2i. In the ASPECT project, 13 companies and research organisations will develop the technology to predict and control of tribological effects in metal forming processes. In particular, the friction variation with temperature during the start-up of the production line, which the consortium estimates as being responsible for a loss of productivity of 25-40%, will be investigated.
It will take you only five minutes to complete the questionnaire. If you have already filled in the questionnaire in 2016, thank you very much, your input is much appreciated and there is no need to fill it in again. If not - your input is very valuable for us and we assure you it will be treated confidentially.
In order to complete the questionnaire, you will need to answer to each question. You will find out that it is possible to select more than one answer per question – please select the answer(s) that are most applicable for you or that give the best representation of your findings. Once you have completed the questionnaire you will receive your own answers per email. When you are ready, you can start filling in the questionnaire : English Here - French Here - German Here - Dutch Here .
