Intelligent Control Experiment Study for V-Shape Free Bending of Wide Sheet Metal
The main problem in bending process of sheet metal is that it is difficult to control bending springback accurately. Springback produced from the unloading of bending makes the shape and size incongruent between bending workpiece and working portion of die. Because the final shape of bending workpiece is related with the whole deformation process, the geometric parameter of die, material performance parameter will have great effect on springback. Therefore, the springback problem is very complicated and the prediction and control of springback is the key to improve the accuracy of bending workpiece. Taking the V free bending of wide sheet as an object of study, the neural networks technology and data acquisition system based on LabVIEW are used to establish intelligent control experiment system for V free bending of wide sheet metal. The control accuracy of system is high and it provides the basis for the realization of intelligent control for V-shape free bending of wide sheet metal in practice in future.
