Automating material handling of flexible sheet-metal blanks in stamping process requires attention due to its significant impact on product quality and productivity. This paper investigated the capability of a fully dynamic and nonlinear finite element technique in developing virtual material handling process of compliant sheet-metal blanks subject to time varying movability conditions. The technique used explicit time integration to avoid the formulation of stiffness matrix by a direct integration of the equations of motion. The influence of holding end-effector layout scheme and movability conditions on the final part quality was investigated.
