Abstract

Abstract: Linear flow splitting is a new manufacturing process to produce branched profiles in integral style. Hereby the sheet metal´s band edge is bifurcated within a continuous process to an intended geometry. The paper presents first achievements concerning the characterization of the flexible flow splitting technology. It extends the manufacturing of bifurcations to sheets with non-constant cross section in lengthwise direction. Flexible processes entail variabilities of process values caused by rising degrees of freedom of the forming process. For this purpose basic mechanisms as well as kinematic restrictions of the flexible flow splitting process are described. In order to handle these appearing inhomogeneities by matching strategies to reach intended part geometry, the progression of the characterising process values and their impact on the part geometry are determined and basic dimensioning values are derived.
