Combining different materials for producing high performance parts opens a broad range of high functionality and applicability. Scope of this project is the investigation of a new method to process metal and plastic within one single production step using impact extrusion. In this study, first FEM results of the combined impact extrusion of metal and plastic will be presented. The aim of the numerical investigation is to achieve a plastic flow of the polymer material during the metal forming process.
