Article Preview

Using the optimum blank in sheet metal forming process not only can decrease the material wasting but also avoid possible defects such as local severe thinning, wrinkling and fracture. Since it is practical technology for industrial production, many blank optimization methods have been proposed and their validity was verified by some forming tests of typical or complicated components. However, all the forming tests were carried out at room temperature or under isothermal condition. In present work, a blank optimization method was employed to evaluate its efficiency in deep drawing of rectangular magnesium alloy cups under non-isothermal condition. It is proved by experiment that the employed blank optimization method can predict successfully the optimum initial blank shape for the component with specified shape and dimension.
