Research on Stamping of Aluminum Alloy Hemispherical Components Based on Numerical Simulation and Experiments
Experimental research on stamping of wrought aluminum alloy has been an important issue at home and abroad. In this paper, taking stamping of aluminum alloy hemispherical components for example, the effects of blank holder force (BHF) on stamping forming process of aluminum alloy are explored by methods of experiments and numerical simulation. Through experiments, the forming laws of hemispherical components are found out. The research shows that the BHF has significant effects on the quality of stamping components and reasonable BHF can greatly improve the formability of hemispherical components. Additionally, by applying simulation software in stamping, the development circle of product and its moulds can be shortened, and product quality and its competitiveness in the market can be improved.
