Sheet Metal 2011
This work contains the proceedings of the 14th International Conference on Sheet Metal, held in Leuven, Belgium, from the 18th to the 20th April, 2011.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
The objective of the International Conferences on Sheet Metal is to provide a forum where researchers, academics and industrialists can discuss and promote both the early dissemination of research results, and technology-transfer in sheet-metal processing. The conference provides an opportunity for those working on experimental research, as well as those involved in analytical and numerical modeling, to present their work. The contents therefore provide an unequalled overview of the field.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The keynote talks presented in this text cover size effects in micro forming, adaptive control in CNC sheet metal processing, the environmental performance of sheet metal working processes, applying servo presses to sheet metal forming, and innovative machine concepts for the three-dimensional bending of tubes and profiles. The rest of the 129 papers explore processes, presses and press tools, cutting and joining, materials and testing, modeling techniques, manufacturing systems, energy and resource efficiency, single point increment forming, quality and reliability, and micro technologies.
