Development of Intelligent Servo-Controlled Forming Technology — New Paper

Posted by | May 15 2017
Designers are adopting new high-performance alloys to create innovative and reliable products while simultaneously reducing cost; however, forming these unique materials can be challenging. As a result, U.S. manufacturers require new forming approaches to stay globally competitive. To address this need, the EWI Forming Center is developing an intelligent servo-controlled forming process that integrates nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, real-time data acquisition, visual monitoring, and computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation to develop a process-optimizing control algorithm. This new process is expected to yield multiple benefits, including increased productivity, real-time parameter adaptation to material property variations, and an improved understanding of the formability…
