Integration of Electromagnetic Calibration into the Deep Drawing Process of an Industrial Demonstrator Part


Article Preview

In recent years a steadily growing interest in applying lightweight construction concepts could be observed. This development is accompanied by an increasing demand for innovative forming strategies suitable for extending the forming limits of the typical lightweight materials. Deep drawing combined with an integrated electromagnetic calibration step is an example of such a technology. The feasibility and potential of this process combination is analyzed on the basis of a demonstrator part from the automotive industry. Thereby, aspects related to the practicability of the electromagnetic forming process itself are regarded as well as points related to the deep drawn preform. The concept of a 3D-coil insert, integrated into a deep drawing punch in order to realize the calibration in the deep drawing process, is introduced and based on the experimental results, conclusions regarding the applicability of the process combination are drawn.
