Carruth, MA and Allwood, JM (2013) A novel process for transforming sheet metal blanks: Ridged die forming. CIRP Annals - Manufacturing Technology, 62. pp. 267-270. ISSN 0007-8506Full text not available from this repository.
Up to 20% of all sheet metal produced is scrapped as blanking skeletons. A novel process is therefore designed and examined, aiming to transform tessellating 'pre-blanks' in-plane into the real blanks required for stamping. Prior to blanking, the sheet is formed with a set of ridged dies, from which pre-blanks are cut and then flattened into true blanks. Several different approaches to designing ridged dies are evaluated by simulation and experiment, and the best results demonstrate a potential reduction in blanking yield losses for can-making from 9.3% to 6.9%. © 2013 CIRP.
