Die Number: NA

Part Number:
Date of Forming: NA

7288875

Observations
"B" blank portion of door inner is 14% safe strain state as evaluated using Circle Grid analysis
supported with ultrasonic thickness readings.,
Analyst was not present when Panel was gridded or formed.
No press settings or die recipe were recorded at time of forming.
Coil number was not available, analysis based on actual thickness measured on formed part
and minimum specified "N" value.
Binder surface show wrinkles at bottom of door then opposite hand panel.
Blank material remains on binder surface outside bead, above window header area after
forming.
Material left on binder at front and rear of window opening is well balanced with no excess
blank on binder after forming (no opportunity from blank reduction).

Recommendations
Second die redraws hinge area of panel deeper. A circle grid evaluation of that forming
operation should be conducted prior to chroming the draw die.
Review weld line location on punch and binder surfaces to document location of blank. Use
this panel as guide in reviewing potential relocation (regauging) of Right hand Rear door blank.
A review of press log for potential set-up changes on this die should be reviewed. If no
changes are documented, a current production draw panel should be obtained, with press and
die recipe recorded.
A thinning analysis and panel comparison should be conducted to verify that Circle Grid panel
matches current production conditions.
If thickness and quality checks confirm part duplication, press and die settings should be
established as production recipe.
