Paper Title:
A Numerical and Experimental Study of Sheet Metal Bending by Pulsed Nd:Yag Laser with DOE Method
  Abstract

Metal forming by a laser source is an efficient and economical method for forming sheet metal into straight bend and doubly curved shape. It can be most useful in the automation of sheet metal forming. This paper presents an FEM model for three dimensional thermo-mechanical simulation of the laser forming. The aim of this simulation and experimental study is to identify the response related to deformation and characterize the effects of process parameters such as laser power, beam diameter, scans velocity and pulse duration, in terms of bending angle for a square sheet part. Extensive experimentation, including a design of experiments, is performed to address the above-mentioned aims. From these experiments it has been determined that laser forming using Nd:YAG laser is a flexible manufacturing process for steel sheet bending.
