Shape characterisation of sheet metal assembly variation with a view to quality assessment and dimensional control
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]
