An Analytical Model to Reduce Spring-Back in Incremental Sheet Metal Forming (ISMF) Process


Article Preview

In this paper, spring-back and its effect on geometrical and dimensional accuracy of incremental sheet metal forming (ISMF) process has been studied. The influence of process parameters such as: vertical step size, sheet thickness, tool diameter, feed rate and spindle speed have been investigated. A series of experimental tests have been carried out for a straight groove bead-shape part made of aluminum sheets. A reliable statistical analysis has been carried out to extract the importance of each parameter. The obtained model permits to select appropriate process parameters to reduce spring-back effectively.
