ThyssenKrupp forming specialists have years of experience working with our customers performing Circle Grid and Thinning Strain Analysis in the areas of new part development and problem solving on ‘difficult’ parts. Working closely with our customers, we have extensive experience with all major OEM’s ESI / FLD and new product launch procedures.

A quality part depends upon design, all material properties and press parameters. Our specialists can assist you in verification, problem solving or cost savings by performing an analysis of the particular part, material and process.


The Forming Limit Curve (FLC) is the Locus of points which describes the material strain limits at the onset of failure (necking).
