What We Do
Forging Process Design
The design team of the company makes full use of CAD/UG/PROE and other application design software system functions to carry out the two-dimensional and three-dimensional design of the product. This is to ensure the unity and accuracy of the original product information, avoid errors caused by human factors, and improve the quality of mold design. The three-dimensional modeling process of the product can fully reflect the external shape of the product before forging and discover possible problems in the original design in time.
The process design strives to achieve excellent forgings, stable process, high material utilization, high labor productivity, high mold life, and low energy consumption. Process stability is the basic condition for improving labor productivity and realizing automated production. We use advanced die forging technology and numerical simulation to optimize the forging process plan.
According to the types of forgings (short shaft forgings and long shaft forgings), shape and accuracy of the product, perform process analysis on the product (consisting of product geometry, determine the forging method), and design of the forging diagram determines the process plan. You can decide whether to use cold forging, warm forging, hot forging, and their composite processes. You can also use open die forging, closed die forging, or upsetting, top upsetting, upsetting, and squeezing.
After the design of the process plan and the forming numerical simulation diagram is completed, computer numerical simulation software should be used to perform numerical simulation on the numerical simulation diagram assisted by a physical simulation. This is to ensure smooth metal flow, good forgings, and balanced stress distribution at various points in the die, as well as optimization of the technological design.
With the application of CAE software (Deform, Qform, etc.) in the forging industry, more and more forging data are collected and sorted out. With the continuous upgrading and improvement of CAE software and the improvement of boundary conditions, the software analysis and forming process will play an increasingly important role in the mold design and improvement process.
The application of the software gives designers a more intuitive design experience while reducing some unnecessary trial costs caused by human factors such as design errors. The use of software not only greatly improves the speed of mold design but also greatly reduces the number of debugging.
According to the stress state of the mold, the stress of each part of the mold is adjusted to improve the service life of the mold. This ensures the original forming process and modification of the forging can be developed to the shape and control of the forging.
Forging Die CAD/CAE/CAM Integration, Optimized Die Process Design, and Die CNC Machining
To realize the integration of CAD/CAE/CAM is to take the computer as the center and combine process design, mold design, and mold processing equipment through data communication. During the conversion of equipment, etc., ensure that the basic data is true and accurate.
In addition, CAD/CAE/CAM technology can also perform finite element analysis to realize the numerical simulation of the forging process, coupled with physical simulation, to optimize the design of the forging forming process, improve the quality of forgings, and increase the life of the die.
Ensure that the process design achieves excellent forgings, stable process, high material utilization, high labor productivity, high die life, low energy consumption, and excellent forging performance to control the forging forming and the performance of the forging. This is the goal of process design for engineers and technicians and the direction of process design development.
