Comparison of Stretching with Horizontal V-Shaped Anvils and Common Flat Anvils
Research was conducted for stretching with horizontal V-shaped anvils (HVA) and common flat anvils (FA). The forgoing research gave the simulation results of single blowing during stretching, and did not pay attention to the influence of the deformation, resulting from the previous blowing, upon the next blowing. ANSYS software is adopted to simulate the through-continuous blowing of HVA and FA forging methods. The transversal stress distribution along the horizontal central axis on the crosssection of the stretched forging is analyzed. The simulation results show that during the stretching with flat anvils, when the ratio of the flat anvil width to the billet height is 1.0 and the ratio of the billet width to the billet height is 0.5, the transversal stress is tensile all the time, and increases as the stretching goes. On the contrary, during the HVA stretching, the stress is compressive and its absolute value increases gradually. The results show that the HVA stretching method is prior to the FA stretching method in the controlling of transversal stress. Conducted physical experiment verified the results.
