Failure Analysis on 30 Ton Automotive Forming Press

 Crack in 30 Ton Forming Press

A coupling end of a 6-inch bore hydraulic cylinder from a 30 ton forming press failed at an automotive company’s manufacturing facilities. O’Donnell Consulting was asked to perform an investigation of the root cause. We performed materials testing and scanning electron microscopy, and discovered residual machine marks, which likely caused the crack initiation.
