Research on Variable Time-Domain Discrete Interpolation Control in Flexible Roll Forming


Article Preview

Due to the complex motion control in flexible roll forming when processing the sheet metal with variable cross-section, it is required for high real-time and high precision control during the processing. Controlling servo motor by adopting the configuration programming is a common approach to achieve roller motion, but it will not be able or difficult to realize by the configuration programming for complex contour sheet metal without the rules such as hyperbolic, or the molding product in non-symmetric cross-section shape, etc. Based on the process characteristic of flexible roll forming and its motion control technology, this paper adopts the variable time-domain discrete interpolation control method to process the variable cross-section sheet metal. Experiments indicate that this control method provides a good operating method for the sheet metal forming with complex variable cross-section shape in flexible roll forming.
