Michael Abspoel
Principal researcher

Further area of speciality: mechanical testing, forming limit curve, yield locus, AutoForm, PAM-STAMP and hot forming.

Biography:
Michael has worked in sheet metal formability for over 25 years. With a background in mechanical engineering, he started as a design and FEA engineer working closely with a press shop. Having later begun to run forming simulation for customers, his work evolved into developing accurate and easy-to-use advanced material models for forming and crash simulation, and improving material characterisation testing, both in-house at Tata Steel and in international working groups.

Area of speciality: Material modelling and testing
Eisso Atzema
Principal scientist

Further area of speciality:  hole expansion, robustness and process control.

Biography:
Eisso has worked in sheet metal formability for over 25 years. His background is in applied mechanics and he started out as an FEA engineer. Over time he became involved in customer support for forming, experimental formability and material characterisation (including scatter) and lately in edge ductility. He has carried out research in international collaborative projects. His next challenge is to employ material and process knowledge in the active control of deep drawing processes.
