Sheet metal assembly is a complex process involving component-to-component and
component-to-tooling interactions. A key characteristic of sheet metal assemblies, the
flexibility of components, means that variation does not stack-up according to the
additive theorem of variance that applies to rigid bodies. Instead, components can be
bent and distorted into conforming or non-conforming shapes by assembly interactions.
This characteristic of flexibility also means that in comparison to...[Show more]
