Sheet Metal 2013
The collection provides an outlet for both industry and academia alike to present their latest findings in the area of sheet metal forming.
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
There are 69 peer reviewed contributions from Industry and academia representing 23 Countries. The research presented covers a diverse field from the fundamental testing and characterisation of sheet metals to the development of new and innovative forming processes.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: The keynote addresses for this sitting of the biennial conference discuss anovel process for manufacturing extended laminar flow lipskins, thesystematic process improvement of stamping processes, and the evolution ofyield loci for aluminum alloy AA6016 and deep drawing steel IC06 under theinfluence of non-linear strain paths. The other 66 papers cover processes,process and production planning, presses and press tools, materials andtesting, modeling techniques, cutting and joining, microtechnologies,quality and reliability, manufacturing systems, a case study of extendingthe value-stream-mapping approach to the comprehensive design of a leansheet metal manufacturing system, analyzing the electric energy consumptionin single-point incremental forming processes, and developments inmonitoring die condition during superplastic forming.
