Development of Micro Metal Forming Manufacturing System
The micro metal forming manufacturing system is essentially an ultra precision forming press that can manufacture various micro scale products from metal thin foil and bulk material. In this paper, the micro metal forming manufacturing system has been developed using a micro servo motor. A micro forming system has been developed in Japan with a micro press that is limited to the single forming process. However, a press with a multi forming process is needed and we set about performing research and development of assorted equipment, including investigation into micro deep drawing and the micro punching process. In order to achieve this goal, exploration into the micro forming process as related to the multi forming process must be preceded first. Material selection and analysis of the micro forming process are accomplished in this paper, and the basis research as to how to make the actual system is accomplished.
