Abstract

One of the largest issues for sheet metal forming techniques such as stamping and incremental forming is springback. Springback is the elastic recovery of a material after it has been formed resulting in distorted part geometries. Springback can be compensated for during the forming process, however, this often requires forming the metal further than the desired shape. Unfortunately, if a formed part is designed such that it is close to its forming limit, compensation could push the material too far and cause fracture. It has been shown that by pulsing electric current throughout an entire workpiece during forming, springback can be greatly reduced and sometimes eliminated.
