Abstract

The innovative manufacturing technologies of flow splitting and bend splitting enable the production of complex and lightweight sheet metal profiles. The Collaboration Research Center (CRC 666) introduced the algorithm based product development process to be able to develop such complex products. The profiles are optimized by using mathematical algorithms during the early product development phase. By using this methodology the result graphic representation of a topological optimized profile. However there is no information about manufacturing restrictions or manufacturing information in general considered. Hence manufacturing of this product is not possible without many iterations until it is adjusted. To conquer this task the following contribution will present an approach to interpret the graphic representation and enhance it with manufacturing information. Therefore the graphic is examined regarding manufacturing technologies. At the beginning, the graphic is abstracted using the profiles’ contours. Depending on the distances between the contours the web thicknesses are extracted. The intersection points are detected and based on different parameters the manufacturing technologies used to produce the profile are determined.
