Geometric shape errors in forging: developing a metric and an inverse model

Rolfe, Bernard; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Abdallah, Samer M.; West, Geoffrey A. W.


The complexity of the forging process ensures that there is inherent variability in the geometric shape of a forged part. While knowledge of shape error, comparing the desired versus the measured shape, is significant in measuring part quality the question of more interest is what can this error suggest about the forging process set-up? The first contribution of this paper is to develop a shape error metric which identifies geometric shape differences that occur from a desired forged part. This...[Show more]
