Paper Title:
Study on Technology of Flexible Forming of Sheet Metal Based on Laser Shock Waves
  Abstract

The conventional forming of sheet metal is realized by the Die and Mould, this method usually give rise to high cost, long production periods and little flexibility. In order to adapt to the changing requirements of the market and make small batch production of three-dimensional parts of shallow stretching economically, a flexible forming technique of sheet metal based on laser shock waves is presented in this paper. After the forming mechanism and process are introduced, a finite-element analysis method is applied to simulate the shock forming process to obtain the optimized laser parameters and the shocking tracks. The experimental are carried out for the overlapped shock-forming, and the forming contour is measured and compared with the FEA simulation. The investigation provides the theoretical foundation for the selection of forming locus and processing parameters of flexible forming of sheet metal.
