Incremental forming of sheets has received considerable attention due to advantages such as part-shape-independent tooling, higher formability and higher process flexibility as compared to conventional forming. In this talk we explore the potential of single-point and double-sided incremental forming of forming polymers and metal-polymer laminates.
- Summarize the characteristics of incremental forming and its advantages as compared to conventional forming
- Identify the key process parameters in incremental forming and and their effects on material formability
- Understand the potential of incremental forming for fabricating polymer and metal-polymer laminate surfaces
