Principles of Pneumatic - Mechanical Forming 630025
This paper presents a serious consideration for expanding manufacturing techniques, reducing material costs, and increasing production rates with greater reliability through use of “Dynapak” high-energy rate metalworking machines. The process of high-energy rate, high velocity impact metalworking is explained and areas for present and future applications in O.E.M. parts manufacture are suggested. The unique controllability of Dynapak machines is discussed and supported by case histories. Metal behaviors, strain rates, and tooling associated with high velocity impact equipment are discussed and findings presented.
Additional data pertaining to such items as automation plans, one-shot forging of complicated shaped parts, and forward and backward extrusion techniques are included.
