Size Effects on Sheet-Metal Formability for Miniature Parts
Due to the rapid progress of industrial development, the formation of lightweight and small-size parts is becoming increasingly important. Especially in the IC and 3C industry, the sheet metal forming of miniature parts is especially interesting. Size effects such as specimen dimension, blank thickness, punch corner dimension, grain size, and grid dimension (for strain measurement), as well as the microstructure of material and surface condition all seriously influence the forming of miniature parts. In this paper, systematic experiments including Erichsen stretch forming and hydraulic bulge, and strain analyzers including for circular and rectangular grids are described for establishing the relationships of sheet metal formability to process parameters. The details of the experimental procedures and results are presented and discussed.
