블랭크 설계와 배치의 일체화를 통한 스탬핑 공정 최적화 시스템의 개발

  • Published : 2003.11.01


In the automobile industry, the design of optimal blank shape becomes a significant part of the stamping. It provides many evident advantages, sush as enhancement of formability, reduction of material cost and product development period. However, the nesting process, required for the optimal usage of materials in the blanking becomes more complicated as the blank shape becomes complicated, like most optimal blank shape. In this study, stamping process optimization system for the optimal usage of material has been developed through the integration of optimal blank design and optimal nesting. For optimal blank design, a radius vector method, the modified version of the initial nodal velocity method, the past work of the present author, have been proposed. Both the optimal blank design and optimal nesting programs have been developed under the GUI environment for the convenience of engineers. The efficiency of the optimization system has been verified with some chosen problems.
