Die Design of a Back Panel for a PDP TV Using 3-D Elasto-Plastic Finite Element Analysis
The objective of this research work is to design optimally dies and the blank sheet for manufacturing of the back panel of a PDP TV. The influence of design parameters of the dies and the blank sheet on the formation of wrinkling in the upper trimming area of the stamped part has been quantitatively investigated through three-dimensional elasto-plastic finite element analysis. The corner radius of the upper trimming area of the die and the blank gap, which is the distance from the outer line of the blank holder to that of the blank, have been chosen as design parameters to remove wrinkling associated with a stamping part in a upper trimming area. From the results of the analyses, it has been shown that a product without wrinkles and skid lines can be manufactured when the corner radius is 8 mm and the blank gap is 60 mm. Several stamping tests have been performed using the manufactured die set and the blank sheet according to the proposed optimum design. From the results of the stamping tests, it has been shown that a back panel of the PDP TV can be successfully manufactured using the proposed optimum design condition.
