Asymmetric Incremental Sheet Forming

Abstract:

Article Preview

The use of computers in manufacturing has enabled the development of several new sheet metal forming processes. This paper describes modifications that have been made to traditional forming methods such as conventional spinning and shear forming, where deformation is localized. Recent advances have enabled this localized deformation to be accurately controlled and studied. Current developments have been focused on forming asymmetric parts using CNC technology, without the need for costly dies. Asymmetric Incremental Forming has the potential to revolutionize sheet metal forming, making it accessible to all levels of manufacturing.
