Abstract

Incremental forming applications are currently increasing in industry, especially for the production of small batches or single components. In fact, sufficient know-how is now available for the manufacture of simple products. However, further efforts are required to reduce the drawbacks of typical incremental forming processes, which compromise important advantages in terms of costs and flexibility. First of all the duration of the process, usually a few minutes, influences this kind of process, even if the operations are carried out on highspeed digitally controlled units. A tendency to produce inaccurate parts can reduce industrial interest with respect to incremental forming. Different approaches could be proposed to reduce this drawback, and a feasible and easily implemented strategy is the design of modified trajectories able to take into account both springback effects and stiffness reduction owing to specific clamping equipment. In this paper, such a strategy is pursued by integrating an on-line measuring system, composed of a digital inspector and a computer numerically controlled (CNC) open program. The geometry obtained is sampled in particular steps and an appropriate routine modifies the coordinates of the future punch path. This procedure of automatic control has been developed using an effective finite element (FE) code. An experimental design illustrates the potential use of the suggested methodology.

Incremental forming applications are currently increasing in industry, especially for the production of small batches or single components. In fact, sufficient know-how is now available for the manufacture of simple products. However, further efforts are required to reduce the drawbacks of typical incremental forming processes, which compromise important advantages in terms of costs and flexibility. First of all the duration of the process, usually a few minutes, influences this kind of process, even if the operations are carried out on highspeed digitally controlled units. A tendency to produce inaccurate parts can reduce industrial interest with respect to incremental forming. Different approaches could be proposed to reduce this drawback, and a feasible and easily implemented strategy is the design of modified trajectories able to take into account both springback effects and stiffness reduction owing to specific clamping equipment. In this paper, such a strategy is pursued by integrating an on-line measuring system, composed of a digital inspector and a computer numerically controlled (CNC) open program. The geometry obtained is sampled in particular steps and an appropriate routine modifies the coordinates of the future punch path. This procedure of automatic control has been developed using an effective finite element (FE) code. An experimental design illustrates the potential use of the suggested methodology.
