Flash Design for Automatic Transfer System of Bearing Hub in Hot Forging Process
The aim of this study is to design flash geometry of bearing hub to apply the automatic transfer system in hot forging process. The flash geometry is very important in hot forging process because the flash geometry effects on the metal flow, material losses, forging load, die pressure and so on. In this study, the problem of designing the flash geometry is studied with flash thickness and width considering the maximum die pressure to apply an automatic transfer system in hot forging process for bearing hub. The numerical analysis was conducted by means of the commercial S/W DEFORM. On the basis of numerical analysis the flash geometry of hot forging die was redesigned, and experiment was conducted. From the experimental results, it was possible to produce bearing hub with an automatic transfer system without any deterioration of die lifetime.
