Abstract: In this paper, circulating box cover is taken as the main object of the study with the application of Taguchi design of experiment and Moldflow software. The warpage deformation was obtained under different molding conditions including melt temperature, mold temperature, filling time and packing time. The influencing degree and trend of these parameters was studied by using the rang analysis, and the optimization set of factors was obtained. Experimental results show that the optimization design is effective and the warpage of the product reduce.
Abstract: To investigate the hot deformation behaviors of AISI 4120 steel, isothermal compression tests were conducted using Gleeble-1500 thermal-mechanical simulator in the temperature range of 1073-1373K with the strain rate of 0.01-10s-1. The hyperbolic sine law in Arrhenius type is used in the constitutive modeling for AISI 4120. The influence of strain is incorporated in constitutive analysis by considering the effect of strain on material constants α, n, Q and ln A. The flow stress values predicted by the developed constitutive equations show a good agreement with experimental results, which reveals that the developed constitutive equations could give an accurate and precise prediction for the high temperature flow behaviors of AISI 4120 steel. The predictability of developed constitutive equation was further quantified in terms of correlation coefficient (R) and average absolute relative error (AARE). The R and AARE were found to be 0.9847 and 8.0372% respectively, which reflects the good prediction capabilities of the developed constitutive equation.
Abstract: The optimization of the parameters in high-speed milling was analyzed based on the principal component analysis and the Taguchi method. The cutting speed, feed per tooth and cutting depth were selected as the cutting parameters while the cutting force, cutting power and surface roughness parameters were selected as quality characteristics. The optimum cutting parameters were obtained and the comprehensive quality of high - speed hard machining has been guaranteed.

Abstract: Static rigidity of workpeice spindle component is a very important index of the rigidity of derict-drive gear hobbing spindle unit. In this study, the static rigidity of workpiece spindle system were analyzed through a finite element method (EFM) by building geometric models and studying the deformation when radial cutting force was imposed. Experiments on workpiece were carried out with and without the assistance of tailstock center separately to measure the changes of the static rigidity of spindle. The results prove a less change of the static rigidity of spindle when with the assistance of tailstock center, which helps to ensure the accuracy and surface roughness of a workpiece.

Abstract: This paper outlines a conceptual framework of STEP-NC manufacturing system, which integrates the entire manufacturing process including CAD, CAPP, CAM and CNC, to make full use of the advantages of the new generation of data model. The STEP-NC manufacturing system consists of five parts and the STEP-NC standard is used to transport the complete product information. The intelligent CNC in this system can parse STEP-NC program directly so that no translation is needed and the part programs are reusable. Networked manufacturing can be realized by implementing this new framework of STEP-NC manufacturing system.
Abstract: This project is focused on the finite element (FE) analysis for mechanical characteristics of resistance spot welding (RSW) process with three sheets stack up instead of conventional two sheets assemblies because of its wide application in automobile industry. It is proved that the protuberances region localized in the nugget area induced in the welding process are more inclined to have fatigue failure such as cracks and fracture. Local stress and strain distributions for three sheets stack up under quasi-static tension load are investigated by both experiments and FE analysis with commercial software code ANSYS and NASTRAN. The high stress/strain value is concentrated at the edges of nugget instead of nugget center from cross section view and stress/strain distribution at the center region of the weld nugget is relatively low. The FE analysis has effectively verification with the experiments results.
Abstract: The research status of welding process between magnesium with steel have been surveyed．This article detailed the laser welding, Laser-TIG hybrid welding, pressure welding,diffusion brazing. The paper pointed out that it is a prominent problem of magnesium to be oxidated easily and existing intermetallic compound in the joint, which will produce adverse effect to property of welded joint. So how to control morphology and existence state of intermetallic compound (IMC) is the key for quality connectors in joining of magnesium with steel.
