Investigation of a Modified Hydrodynamic Deep Drawing Assisted by Radial Pressure with Inward Flowing Liquid Process
Metal Forming Research Center, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Babol Noshirvani University of Technology, Babol, 48187-1167, Iran
Hydrodynamic Deep Drawing (HDDRP), the combination of hydroforming and conventional deep drawing, accommodates the advantages of the two processes. A technique, called HDDRP with inward flowing liquid, has been introduced based on the idea of insertion of radial pressure around the blank rim. The radial pressure created on the blank edge, can increase the drawing ratio. Thus, increasing the radial pressure to an amount greater than the cavity pressure, and independent control of these pressures is the basic idea of this research for forming cylindrical parts. To perform the experiments, two independent pumps were used to provide the two pressures independently. The pressure supply system and the die set were designed in a way that provides simultaneous control of the pressures throughout the process. Then, the effects of radial pressure paths on thickness distribution of cylindrical St13 cups were investigated. In addition, a comparison between HDDRP and HDDRP with inward flowing liquid processes has been performed experimentally. Results indicated that using a higher radial pressure than the cavity pressure and controlling their values at any moment of the process enhances the thickness distribution of the formed part in all regions.
