This comprehensive reference on sheet metal forming and fabrication provides state-of-the-art reference information for product and production engineers. Coverage addresses all methods of sheet metal fabrication technologies, selection of equipment and die materials, specification of forming practices for specific alloys, and new techniques for process design and control. This Volume provides you with practical reference information on the basic processes of press forming, drawing, bending, spinning, shearing, blanking, and piercing of sheet with additional coverage on forming with bar, tube, wire, shapes, or long parts.

New content areas include:

  • Expanded coverage on computer-based methods for process simulation and control
  • Advanced high-strength steels (AHSS) forming and material developments
  • Expanded coverage on the evaluation and mitigation of springback and the troubleshooting of formability problems
  • Rapid prototyping and die-less flexible manufacturing techniques such as thermal forming and peen forming
  • Updates on cold-work powder metallurgy tool steels and tool coatings
  • Updates and addition of practical reference information on basic operations of bending, press forming, and press brake forming
  • Application of tailor weld blanks
  • New process related developments in superplastic forming and conventional forming of aluminum, titanium, nickel, magnesium, and refractory alloys
  • Recent process modifications in hydroforming and high-velocity metal forming

Sections Include: Introduction to Forming Processes * Shearing, Cutting, Blanking, and Piercing * Equipment for Forming of Sheet Metal * Tooling and Fabrication for Forming Sheet, Strip, and Plate * Forming Processes for Sheet, Strip, and Plate * Forming of Bar, Tube, and Wire * Sheet Forming of Specific Ferrous and Nonferrous Metals * Formability Analysis * Process Design and Modeling for Sheet Forming * Reference Information * Index
