Cold Forging Die Design and Process Simulation of a Disk with Inner Ring Gear
Cold forging die design and process simulation were studied in this paper for a disk with center boss and outer ring gear. The complexity of part geometry results in defects of under-filling and folding. The material flow interference in the radial and the axial directions at the corner areas is the main reason of the occurrence of defects. A multi-stage cold forging process was proposed to control the material flow and volume distribution simultaneously. FEM simulations were carried out to evaluate the designs of process and die. The proposed preform and web geometry designs were able to decrease the forging load and control the material flow. The simulation results showed the proposed methods were able to make this forged part without defects.
