Abstract: Single Point Incremental Forming (SPIF) is a novel sheet metal forming process. The formability (i.e. spif-ability) in this process is determined through Varying Wall Angle Conical Frustum (VWACF) test. In this paper, the effect of variation in the curvature radius, a geometrical parameter of test, on the test results is investigated. A series of VWACF tests with a variety of curvature radii is performed to quantify the said effect. It is found that the spif-ability increases with increasing of curvature radius. However, any variation in the curvature radius does not affect the spif-ability when the normalized curvature radius (i.e. curvature radius/tool radius) becomes higher than 9.

Abstract: Sing point incremental forming (SPIF) limit is much higher than the traditional processes. Currently, there are still no systematic theories and criterions to predict the limit. In this paper, the Oyane ductile fracture criterion is introduced to predict the forming limit of SPIF based on the stress-strain data by the finite element simulations. The predicted fracture initiation sites and the forming limit curve are consistent with the experiment results; further, the forming characteristic, stress state, local temperature are the main reasons of the higher forming limit in SPIF.

Abstract: Single point incremental forming (SPIF) is a novel sheet metal forming process. Owing to unique deformation mechanism, this process improves the sheet formability as compared to the conventional stamping process. In the current paper, the mechanical properties and spifability (i.e. formability in SPIF) of a wide range of materials were tested. The mechanical properties were mainly determined through tensile testing and the spifability was evaluated using Varying Wall Angle Conical Frustum (VWACF) test. Each mechanical property was drawn against the improvement in sheet formability (i.e. difference of spifability and stampability) and the sole most influential property was identified. It was found that the improvement in formability increases with the increasing of true thickness strain at tensile fracture.
