Process Parameters Optimization of Ballscrew Manufactured by Cold Rolling
To optimize the process parameters of cold rolling the finite element model of metal plastic flow in cold rolling was carried out based on the cold forming principle of ballscrew and rigid-plastic finite element theory. The adaptive mesh refinement was utilized to improve calculation accuracy in large plastic deformation zone. Using lagrangian algorithm the processing of cold rolling is numerically simulated by DEFORM-3D. The appropriate revolution speed is got by analyzing different simulation results such as the maximum stress and maximum strain and flow velocity etc. under different revolution speeds. The appropriate transmission ratio is got by analyzing different simulation results such as the maximum stress and maximum strain and flow velocity etc. under different transmission ratios. The research results provide evidence for process parameters optimization. At the same time those research results lay a foundation of further study of forming mechanism.
