Simulation and Control Models of Laser Bending Angle of Sheet Metals


Article Preview

Laser bending process of sheet metals is a highly flexible forming technique. Simulate model of laser bending process was established by dimension analysis, and the control model of laser bending was achieved with the regression of swatch datum. It was shown that dimension analysis was an effective method in simulating the complex laser bending process, and the control model, which came from non-dimension group datum, was a high-accuracy model in predictive analysis of bending angle.
