Numerical Simulation Of The Cold Forming Process Of Small Metallic Parts

24 2024. 6. 11.
Numerical Simulation Of The Cold Forming Process Of Small Metallic Parts

Summary

Cold forming is a key step in the manufacturing of ballpoint pen tips, which poses technical constraints on the raw material such as low inclusion content and small dimensional variation. Numerical simulations have been identified as a promising tool to identify the most suitable tool geometry to perform the cold forming operation, allowing thus both to increase the tooling lifetime and to expand the materials compatible with it. The group has extensive hands-on experience in cold forming but has not yet explored the use of numerical simulations in this context. By making the process less sensitive to the raw material characteristics, the group can broaden its supply sources, reduce operating costs, and introduce new materials with a view to comply with the anticipated strengthening of safety regulations.
