Intelligent Shimming for Deep Drawing Processes
Publication: Research - peer-review › Conference article in Journal
This paper demonstrates the use of an intelligent shimming system to compensate for changes in process output due to tool wear. A new tool concept with integrated hydraulic cavities used as actuators in feedback control system is presented. By prescribing a hydraulic pressure in the individual cavities the blank-holder force distribution can be controlled during the punch stroke. By means of a sequence of numerical simulations abrasive wear is imposed to the deep drawing of a rectangular cup. The abrasive wear is modelled by changing the tool surface geometry using an algorithm based on the sliding energy density. As the tool surfaces are changed the material draw-in is significantly altered when using conventional open-loop control of the blank-holder force. A feed-back controller is presented which is capable of reducing the draw-in difference to a certain degree. Further a learning algorithm is introduced to the system, which is able to improve the response of the feed-back system significantly.
