Application of the Backward Tracing Scheme of Finite Element Method to Tailored Blank Design and Welding Line Movement in Sheet Metal Forming
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 453~462
Tailor-welded blanks are used for forming of automobile structural skin components. The main objective of this study is to achieve weight and cost reduction in manufacturing of components. For successful application of tailor-welded blanks, design of initial welded blanks and prediction of the welding line movement are critical. The utilization of the backward tracing scheme of the finite element method shows to be desirable in design of initial welded blanks for net-shape production and in prediction of the welding line movement. First the design of the initial blank in forming of welded thick sheet with isotropy is tried, and it appears successful in obtaining a net-shape stamping product. Based on the first trial approach, the backward tracing scheme is applied to anisotropic tailored blanks. The welding line movement is also discussed.
An Experimental Study on the Forming Characteristics of Pre-Coated Metals
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 463~468
An experimental study has been performed to investigate the forming characteristics of pre-coated metals(PCMs) widely used in domestic appliances through Erichsen tests and deep drawing tests. Erichsen tests are performed to find out the forming limits of seven pre-coated metals in normal conditions. Rectangular deep-drawing tests are carried out to know the effects of die materials and blank metals on forming loads and surface defects of final PCM products. In the deep-drawing test, four die materials ［STD11(TiCN), STD11, STD11(TD), AMPCO] are used. In the Erichsen test, the forming limits of PCMs are obtained from flaking or crack of pre-coated films and lower than those of base metals. In respect of surface roughness and forming load, STD11(TD) and AMPCO materials are superior to my other die-materials used in the deep-drawing test.
A Study on the Influence of Blank Shape in Elliptical Deep Drawing Process
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 469~477
Most of researches have been performed on the formability of axisymmetric shape, but it is insufficient that the study on Process variables of elliptical deep drawing Product. There are many Process variables exerted influence on the formability of products. Particularly, blank shape is more important than the others in elliptical deep drawing process. In this study, blanks of three types were proposed and compared using thickness distribution and movement of sheet during the process. The aim of a paper is to obtain optimal blank shape through experiment and finite element analysis(FEA).
Process and Die Design for the Forming of Flanged Thrust Engine Bearings
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 478~485
This study aims to Improve the productivity in forming of flanged thrust engine bearings from two kinds of laminated sheet materials by integrating the forming processes or by reducing the number of the subsequent sizing and machining processes or by modifying the forming tools used. For steel-Al rolled blank, a design scheme for the one-step forming operation and the geometry of the tool set required is suggested and is verified its usefulness by the finite element simulation. And for steel-Cu sintered blank, the results of experiment and finite element analysis show that it is possible to improve the dimensional accuracy of formed products and to reduce the number of sizing processes just by modifying the shape and dimensions of initial blanks and flange forming dies, and by controlling the spring force.
Influence of Die Geometry on Die-tip Buildup in Plastic Extrusion
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 486~493
Extrusion die-lip buildup has direct and negative impact on the properties of the final product. At the present time there is no absolute method of die-lip prevention. However, a Periodical shut down of extrusion line for the removal has been the general practice throughout the industry in concern. In this study the die-lip buildup was Investigated with a particular attention paid to the influence of die exit geometry and dimensions on the stresses produced at the point of die exit. To demonstrate the relationship between the stress state and the magnitude of the die-lip buildup, a method of virtual manufacturing was performed, assuming elastic-plastic material behavior for the high-density polyethylene under investigation. The overall numerical results suggested that the longer the die-land and/or the smaller the areal reduction of the die would reduce the tendency for the die-lip formation. Similarly, haying a fillet around the circumferential edge of the die exit would be favorable in decreasing the die-lip buildup.
Fabrication of Particulates Reinforced Metal Matrix Composites by Electro-Magnetic Stirring and Reheating Process for Thixoforming
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 494~503
The electro-magnetic stirring and mechanical process were applied to fabricate particulate metal matrix composites(PMMCs) with various particle size. The mechanical test on PMMCs was carried out in order to clarify the effect of 76 heat treatment on tensile behaviors. In order to study the thixoforming of PMMCs, fabricated billet are reheated by using the coil designed as a function of length between PMMC billet and coil surface, coil diameter and billet length. The effect of reinforcement distribution on billet temperature variation has been investigated with the calculated solid fraction theory based on a function of matrix alloy and volume fraction of reinforcement.

Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 504~511
Hydroforming is a forming process enabling circular metal tubes to be produced in complex cross sections along curved axial paths. This forming process is widely used to manufacture parts in automotive industry. This paper presents bending and forming results to following angle of weld line positions. These compare to good bending, bad bending and without weld line model case. And then this result of after forming compare to each forming cases. The purpose of this paper is found that adaptive weld line position for bended final shape.

Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 512~525
Designers are frequently faced with multiple quality issues in injection molded parts. These issues are usually In conflict with each other, and thus tradeoff needs to be made to reach a final compromised solutions. The objective of this study is to develop an automated injection molding design methodology, whereby part defects such as warpage and weld line are optimized. The features of the proposed methodology are as follows: first, Utility Function approach is applied to transform the original multiple objective problem into single objective problem. Second is an implementation of a direct search-based Injection molding optimization procedure with automated consideration of process variation. The Space Reduction Method based on Taguchi's DOE(Design Of Experiment) is used as a general optimization tool in this study. The computational experimental verification of the methodology was partially carried out for a can model of Cavallero Plastics Incorporation, U. S. A. Applied to production, this study will be of immense value to companies in reducing the product development time and enhancing the product quality.

Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 526~532
Springback simulation is receiving increasing attention throughout the automotive industry and the academic world. The knowledge of the real springback of stamped parts can help the stamping technicians to modify the process parameters or die geometry in order to reduce the shape defect. This paper presents the results of springback simulation after aluminium square cup deep drawing and trimming simulation, and results of springback optimization using response surface method.
A Study on the Development of Cathode-Ray Tube Die Using Hot forging
Transactions of Materials Processing, volume 9, issue 5, 2000, Pages 533~538
This study has been carried out to develop a CRT die using hot forging. The conventional CRT die made by casting has defects such as void and inclusion. These defects of the cast die make micro-spots on the surface of the CRT which affect the quality of the final product. So, a hot forging process is developed to avoid these defects of CRT die by the model material test and the rigid-plastic FEM. Firstly, model material tests are carried out with plasticine billets in order to investigate the material flow pattern in the die cavity and to get the reasonable initial values for designing the preform in the FE simulation. And then a finite element analysis has been performed to Predict the preform and the forging load of a CRT die. We also suggest an integrated die-set which combines two die-sets into one die-set to save manufacturing time and cost in case of similar die-size.
