DeVaPro

Project title: Development of a Variable Warm Forging Process Chain (DeVaPro)

Forming stages steering link

Forming stages connecting rod within DeVaPro 

Runtime: January 1, 2009 – December 31, 2010
   

The aim of the project DeVaPro – Development of a Variable Warm Forging Process Chain – was to make the forging process that had been developed in the previous project DesProCh more variable. A preforming operation was to be integrated into the process chain to be able to manufacture more complex geometries, like a steering link or connecting rod.

Five SMEs and three research institutes originating from four countries participated in the DeVaPro project. The cooperative research project was funded by the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union.
