Study on the Roller-Bending Simulation to Promote Productivity in the HINGE STRAP Forming System
The purpose of present study was to increase productivity and to promote the quality of the part in the forming system for hinge strap in automobile. So the roller-bending simulation was carried out to develop the forming system for the hinge strap. A square tube used in the roller-bending for the hinge strap was fabricated using process of the sheet forming and the welding. So study on the mechanical properties of the original metal sheet (SPCC 1.6t) and weld-line (including a HAZ) were performed before the roller-bending simulation. And the body forces of the roller (rigid body) in the roller-bending process simulation were calculated to make an accurate estimate the capacity of the oil pressure cylinder for a pressure device. Then the roller-bending process was divided into 5 steps for the simulation for validating the effect of the bending velocity on the springback. At the end, the shape after springback was estimated. The result was adopted in the design for the bending die.
