Paper Title:
Forming 3D Sheet Metals by Means of Continuous Rolling Method
  Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel method of using the continuous rolling to fabricate three-dimensional sheet metal. The core bendable roller is composed of the flexible axis and the controllable equipment. The transversal shape of the sheet metal can be realized by regulating the controllable equipment to make the axis of bendable roller bent; the longitudinal shape is formed by driving the three bendable rollers rotated and the top roller making a displacement synchronously. Some experiments were performed and typical 3D surface parts were formed. Based on the results of the experiments, the effects of the thickness and the rolling times are discussed. The results of the research will be beneficial to define the parameters and perfect the theory of continuous multipoint forming of multiform 3D parts.
