Paper Title:
The Technological Optimization of Closed Multiple-Ram Forging for Draw Rod
  Abstract

Draw rod is one of the main mechanical parts of vehicle steering system,which is required extremely high quality. At present the way to produce the draw rod is machining after common open-die forging. This technology will produce big flashings,damage the metal’s fibrous structure and reduce the material utilization. In this essay, we will use the technology of closed multiple-ram forging to produce it. We will utilize numerical simulation on several blanks through numerical simulation combined with experiments. In this way, the defects that some parts of the blank are folded and cannot fill well during forming process can be effectively avoided. Besides, there will be free of flashing and the draw rod forgings do not need to be cut. The weight of the original blank will be about 3.5 kg after being optimized, down by 36.4 percent compared with that of original material about 5.5 kg. And we will make different settings for the loading way of the plunger chips during the forming process, then compare with the simulation results and ultimately find out the best loading way. At last, we will verify the feasibility of such an optimal technology through experiments on the material-lead.
