The Dimension Accuracy Analysis of Multi-Wire Flat Rolling Process


Article Preview

In multi-wire flat rolling process, the error of the rolled wires in thickness was due to the roller deflection and the spring back of the rolled wire. In order to control the dimension accuracy, to know the quantity of thickness error precisely is very important. In this study, the DEFORM-3D finite element analysis software was used to simulate the multi-wire flat rolling process with the elastic-plastic deformation model, supposed the rollers as elastic body and the wires as elastic-plastic body through the rolling process. From the computer simulation results, it can be found that, the deflection of roller has the biggest effect on the dimension accuracy of wire. To control the deflection value of roller, besides roller material and the roller length, the choice of roller diameter is also very important.
