Study of Multi-Point Flexible Floating Clamping System of Multi-Roll Stretch Forming Process
Multi-Roll Stretch forming process is a new flexible process which is used for forming hyperbolic-degree surface pieces. Using the Multi-point flexible floating clamping system, the metal sheet can be more easily formed, and the flexibility can be much higher, which the ordinary floating clamping cannot have. A series of finite element simulations and experiments have been done for the process of forming saddle-shaped parts using Multi-Point flexible floating clamping system, and ordinary floating clamping system. The results show that the quality of the part formed using flexible floating clamping system is better.
