Paper Title:
Numerical Simulation of the Auto Claw-Pole Thixoforming Process
  Abstract

Thixoforming is an effective near-net-shape forming process to produce components with complex geometry and in fewer forming steps. In this study, thixoforming was used to replace the conventional hot forging to form the auto claw-pole. The finite element code Forge2008Ó was used to simulate the auto claw-pole thixoforming process. The results show that initial billet temperature, punch speed, die temperature and friction have strong impact on the forming process. Finally, the reasonable process parameters for the auto claw-pole thixoforming were obtained: initial billet temperature 1430~1440°C, punch speed 100~200mm/s and die temperature 300~400°C.
