Dimensional Characteristics of Products Using Rotary Swaging Machine with Four-Dies
Experiments under a cold rotary swaging process have been conducted to investigate the dimensional characteristics of the swaged tube and solid bar for obtaining proper product of desirable quality. Dimensional characteristics are expressed in terms of dimensional deviation and surface roughness of swaged product through the rotary swaging process. The process variables such as forming speed and percent reduction of outer diameter of the product are considered and selected because of playing a key role in the rotary swaging process. Furthermore the developed rotary swaging machine with four-split dies, named as KRSM25, is used in the swaged experiment. Based on the experimental results, it is observed that the process variables affect the quality of swaged product such as dimensional precision, surface roughness of the product. Defect could be found to occur at a value of more than 2.0 mm/rev in forming speed. The dimensional precision of swaged product depends on the percentage reduction of outer diameter and forming speed. The work presented in this paper might be used for available information in the design of the optimum rotary swaging process.
