Using geometric shape variations to create an inverse model for a sheet metal process

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


The output of the sheet metal forming process is subject to much variation. This paper develops a method to measure shape variation in channel forming and relate this back to the corresponding process parameter levels of the manufacturing set-up to create an inverse model. The shape variation in the channels is measured using a modified form of the point distribution model (also known as the active shape model). This means that channels can be represented by a weighting vector of minimal linear...[Show more]
