Abstract

Incremental forming (IF) is a novel sheet material forming technique, which has the ability to eliminate the need for die sets. The IF method forms sheet material by use of a non-cutting tool, which gradually deforms the sheet material into the desired shape. In the following works, this research proposes a range of novel tool geometries that allows forming of the sheet material in multiple directions at a rapid rate, allowing for greater formability, improved surface finish, and reduced springback. Additionally, several tool features are proposed which achieve this forming motion. Part 1 of this research describes the design of the tooling, as well as variations that are possible with the tool's geometry. In part 2 of this research, the proposed forming method is validated.
