Abstract

Incremental Forming processes have been introduced in the recent past as an alternative to the money consuming stamping technology, when small batches have to be manufactured. Anyway, they introduce some advantages in terms of flexibility and material formability but, also, some problems such as the dimensional accuracy decreasing. In this paper, a particular application is carried out taking into account the development of an innovative technique to produce a customised ankle support. In this way Incremental Forming process has been selected for the sheet profiling, exalting the role that this technology may play when single complex product has to be manufactured. The producing procedure finishes with a measure of the dimensional accuracy that shown a good result for the desired application.

Incremental Forming processes have been introduced in the recent past as an alternative to the money consuming stamping technology, when small batches have to be manufactured. Anyway, they introduce some advantages in terms of flexibility and material formability but, also, some problems such as the dimensional accuracy decreasing. In this paper, a particular application is carried out taking into account the development of an innovative technique to produce a customised ankle support. In this way Incremental Forming process has been selected for the sheet profiling, exalting the role that this technology may play when single complex product has to be manufactured. The producing procedure finishes with a measure of the dimensional accuracy that shown a good result for the desired application. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
