Abstract

Due to the great need for reducing production costs, productivity increasing quality improvement of products, the study had its start drafting surface treatment of dies process development, where the first step was a market study looking for the treatment types and their applications. These treatments are intended to stabilize the production process so that there are no variations on the production and increasing the useful life of dies and their appropriate tools. It was determined through analysis, that the parts had problems in dies drawing which influenced on productivity, quality and cost. It had been realized that those parts had similar problems and the treatments could generally minimize such problems. The following step was to apply the treatment of dies and tools, and then realized that the results achieved certain goals, managing to stabilize the stamping process of those parts.

 

Key words: Automotive stamping, covered tools, electroplating of chromium.
