Kurzbeschreibung (Abstract)

For the manufacturing of large quantities of profile-shaped products, the roll forming process represents one of the most effective metal forming technologies. During this process, the sheet metal will be formed into a desired cross-sectional profile using successive pairs of forming rolls. This process is well known as a very complex process in industry because of the multiplicity of the process and design parameters. For that reason, the optimization of roll forming processes using numerical methods like the finite element method is very complex and time-consuming. In this paper, a numerical method will be introduced to accelerate the simulation and to optimize the roll forming process. The newly developed algorithm will be illustrated and validated by analyzing the roll forming process. The details of the FE-model and the numerical algorithm will be described. Furthermore, the results of the numerical simulation with and without the application of the numerical algorithms will be compared. Finally, the process will be optimized using the newly developed method.
