Abstract
Press hardened components have become widespread in the automotive industry in structural and crash resistant applications, thanks to the combination of complex shape and high mechanical properties obtained. However, press hardening of coated boron steel results in severe adhesive-based wear, with tool maintenance cycles being as short as 3000 cycles. In this work, surface replication is applied to the analysis of wear on press hardening tools. By using this non-destructive technique, the morpho...
