process," International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology, vol.
It did not take as much searching as I had feared - the original two-game stretch forming
part of an eventual five-game unbeaten run as Saracens and Gloucester both fell at Kingston Park in succession, Worcester having managed to escape with a 16-16 draw.
Additional capital improvements at the LMI facility in Vista, California, have provided the necessary capacity for the program's stretch forming
and metal fabrication requirements.
This reduction shows the gradual transition of forming mode from stretch forming
to draw forming for this point.
is a metal forming process in which a piece of sheet metal is stretched and bent simultaneously over a die in order to form large contoured parts (Paulsen and Welo, 2002).
Taking into account that the shape is relatively complex, we decided that the tangential stretch forming
method is most suited.
: Stretch forming
forces tapered dies into the top and bottom of the can.
Systems have been developed for the stretch forming
and casting industries.
Haydn Risby, technical manager at HAT, said: "The traditional method of stretch forming
was offered initially, but for the low to medium production volumes required by Modec, the stretch forming
tooling costs were not cost effective for the project's budget.
And Schweizer backs up its production people with computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), and computer numerical control (CNC) routing plus stretch forming
, rubber press forming, drop-hammer forming, aluminum heat treating, and welding.
