The CuttingEdge4.0 project deals with Industry 4.0 solutions for manufacturing complex parts with AHSS, which show high risk of edge cracking. Production failure algorithms will be developed following Artificial Intelligence methodologies. Fracture toughness of processed steels (Dual Phase and Complex Phase) is measured to select the best material to avoid edge cracking. It is also measured in different production steel batches using a fast-testing method to detect the property variation during long-term production and to rationalize cracking problems if they occur during production.
