Stamp forming of polypropylene based fibre-metal laminates: The effect of process variables on formability

Mosse, Luke; Compston, Paul; Cantwell, Wesley J; Cardew-Hall, Michael; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


In stamp forming of sheet materials, the quality of the part and the robustness of the process are determined by a number of variables. This study looks at the application of the stamping process to a fibre-metal laminate (FML) material system and the effect of the blankholder force, punch feed rate and tool radius on the quality of a channel formed laminate. The results indicate that increasing feed rate reduces shape error and delamination significantly and reduces the variation between...[Show more]
