According to sine law, a vertical wall square box can’t be formed by NC incremental sheet metal forming process in a single process, rather, it must be formed in multi processes. A vertical wall square box can be considered to consist of corners and straight sides. Straight sides and corners affect each other and the effect is different in various square boxes. The effect depends on the ratio r/B of the corner radius r and straight side width B. The smaller r/B, the larger the effect of straight side on corner is. In this case, the deformation in the straight sides isn’t even, and the metal of the corner is compressed and gradually piled up. With the increase of r/B, the deformation becomes more uniform. The tool path with gradually reduced corner radius is adopted to overcome this question. A vertical wall square box with small corner radius is successfully formed.
