Die-Bending of Adhesively Bonded Sheet Metals
In this paper, the deformation behavior of adhesive layer in die-bending for adhesively bonded sheet metals was investigated by experiments and finite element method (FEM). We paid special attention to the bending/unbending shear deformation of the adhesive layer during the die-bending of adhesively bonded sheet metals by using highly ductile acrylic adhesive. Major results obtained are summarized as follows: (1) The bending/unbending shear deformation of the adhesive layer was observed during the die-bending. (2) The punch radius has a large influence on the die-bending in the adhesively bonded sheet metals. (3) It is desirable to perform die-bending at high speed as well as air-bending.
