Abstract

Roll forming is an important economic forming process for manufacturing of profiles. For an optimal design of the process, it is important to determine the loads occurring during the forming process. Furthermore, the information of the load behavior enables an evaluation of the formability of the planned profiles with the chosen roll forming machine. An experimental determination of loads in roll forming processes requires a complex measurement setup in combination with a high amount of measurement devices. Hence, the analysis of roll loads by means of finite element simulation is of special interest. The use of roll forming simulations for the determination of geometrical outputs is state of the art. However, due to simplifications, a realistic and reliable output of roll loads in roll forming is impossible. Therefore, the compliance behavior under load and the frictional behavior have to be incorporated in the simulation model. The friction behavior in roll forming processes is presented to be very insignificant in literature. The value of the friction coefficients vary in a broad range. Due to lack of knowledge in the compliance behavior of the used stands, simulation models with rigid rolls are still state of the art. This paper will show the reproduction of realistic roll loads, e.g. torques and forces, in a roll forming simulation. Therefore, the friction coefficients of each roll-sheet metal contact will be gained experimentally and implemented in the numerical model. Furthermore, a characteristic compliance of the roll forming stands will be analyzed and also considered in the simulation. Finally, the influence of changing parameters, e.g. raise of the friction coefficients, on the roll loads will be investigated. To verify the simulation the numerical results will be compared to data gained by experiments.
