Abstract
Abstract The cage roll forming process improves the flexibility of electrical resistance welding (ERW) pipes manufacturing by employing several groups of cage rolls, but poses great challenge to flower design and roll positioning, since the flower pattern and rolls’ positions are no longer one-to-one correlated as in conventional roll forming processes. In the present work, a forming flower design method for cage roll forming of ERW pipes is proposed, considering the transversal bending characteristics of the sheet metal, especially the existence of “non-bending area”. Furthermore, based on kinematic analysis of the cage roll frame, a roll positioning method is put forward by implementing flower pattern and enforcing the geometric constraint condition between rolls and the steel strip. The proposed flower pattern design and roll positioning methods are demonstrated by the cage roll forming of two ERW pipes. The forming processes by using the newly designed parameters and old experience based parameters are compared. The proposed method provides a science based process design method for cage roll forming processes. To the best of our knowledge, the present work is the first effort on developing flower pattern and roll positioning design methods for the cage roll forming process of ERW pipes.

Abstract Flexible roll forming is an advanced sheet metal forming process that allows for the production of variable cross-section profiles. Longitudinal bow is one of the major shape defects found in roll-formed products. To characterize the degree of longitudinal bow during flexible roll forming, experiments were conducted on three different blank shapes: trapezoid, convex and concave. Symmetric U-sections with variable cross-sections were roll formed using the three sheet materials with diffe...

Advanced high strength steels (MISS) pose great challenges to sheet metal forming processes in vehicle components manufacturing with their increasing high strength and surface hardness. Chain-die forming is a recently proposed manufacturing method alternative to roll forming, aiming at reducing the redundant strain by enlarging the deformation length through a remarkably large rotation radius. In this work, the performance of AHSS in chain-die forming is investigated by experiment and simulation...

Abstract Remote joining by plastic deformation in the process of linear flow splitting combines forming with simultaneously activated joining processes. While the forming process takes place in one region of a profile, the joining of the profile with another component occurs outside the forming zone. This approach promises a great potential with regard to joining multi-material units in a short process chain. Linear flow splitting is a rolling process which results in thin-walled and branched pa...

Chain-die forming is a new sheet metal forming technology which has been developed as a supplement to roll forming in fabricating Advanced High-Strength Steel (AHSS) products. It has an advantage by reducing redundant plastic deformation during the forming process. The implementation is achieved through increasing the deformation length, via increasing the virtual roll radii. The rolls with large radii are assemblies of shaped die-blocks through chains and therefore it is called “Chain-die Formi...

Chain-die forming is a promising manufacturing technology that is emerging as an alternative to roll forming and stamping in fabricating advanced high-strength steel (AHSS) products. The maximum edge longitudinal membrane strain (MELMS) and the springback are regarded as the crucial indicators for evaluating the quality of fabricated AHSS products. As Chain-die forming is a newly developed sheet metal fabricating method, the evaluations and predictions of the effects of the independent product p...

To improve the strength-toughness of traditional U-rib (TUR) and solve the problem of insufficient penetration between TUR and deckplate, a new local thickened U-rib ( LTUR) has been proposed to improve the fatigue resistance of the weld joint under the premise of not increasing thickness and strength of the TUR material. And a hot/warm roll-forming process (RFP) adopting partially induction heating to 700–1000 °C was carried out to fabricate LTUR. The deformation behaviors in the forming proces...

Abstract Since pipes are undergone repeated tension and compression strains during pipe-forming, and flattening, flattened sheets often show too higher or lower yield strength than hot-rolled coils, which poses to difficulties in satisfying yield strength standards. In this study, effects of microstructure and pipe-forming strain (thickness/diameter (t/D)) on yield strength variation were investigated in X70 (483 MPa) and X80 (552 MPa) linepipe steels fabricated by controlling Mo content and coi...

Abstract Demand for three-dimensional (3D) curved sheet metals for the manufacture of the skin structures used in various industrial fields continues to increase. Three-dimensional curved sheet metals have generally been manufactured using conventional die forming (CDF) processes, which can ensure forming quality and productivity. However, they are not economically efficient since they incur the additional production costs associated with the development and maintenance of the forming tools. For...

Abstract Advanced high strength steel (AHSS), especially dual phase steel, is widely used on modern automobiles to achieve high strength-to-weight ratios. Roll forming is one of the most widely used forming processes in the steel industry. In this study, roll forming process, where bending is the main deformation mode, is adopted to investigate the fracture mechanism. A set of rollers is designed to investigate the fracture mechanism on roll formed part. The fracture behavior is studied during r...

The initial process design of a roll forming system is often based on the traditional ‘flower pattern diagram’. In this diagram, the cross sections of the strip at each roll stand are superimposed on a single plane; the diagram is a 2D representation of the 3D process. In the present work, the flower pattern is extended into three dimensions. To demonstrate the method, the forming path or trajectory of a point at the edge of the strip during forming a V-section is considered. The forming path is...

Abstract null null Metal forming processes usually require high investment due to expensive plants and machinery, and, above all, the need of tailored tooling, which often limits their applicability to medium or large size production batches. Such economic issues become even more critical as the shape complexity or the parts dimensions rise, due to increased costs for material and equipment. As a consequence, to play in the metalforming market companies have to be capital intensive, which means ...

Two conventional angle adjusting methods for HSS, i.e., the Namaste-type and the Platform-type applied widely for complex-sectional normal steel, easily lead to the edge waves and asymmetric behavior, respectively, especially high springback that is dif...

An innovative manufacturing method to fabricate tubular parts made of tungsten heavy alloy (THA) by diffusion bonding of sintered semicircular tubes is proposed and characterized in this study. THAs are produced by blending tungsten grains with a lower-melting-point Ni-Fe binder metal. During the liquid phase sintering (LPS) process of THA, the Ni-Fe liquid wets the tungsten and provides a soluble diffusion network for rapid sintering. Multi-phase THAs are usually very difficult to produce as a ...
