EWI forming centerDesigners are adopting new high-performance alloys to create innovative and reliable products while simultaneously reducing cost; however, forming these unique materials can be challenging. As a result, U.S. manufacturers require new forming approaches to stay globally competitive. To address this need, the EWI Forming Center is developing an intelligent servo-controlled forming process that integrates nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, real-time data acquisition, visual monitoring, and computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation to develop a process-optimizing control algorithm. This new process is expected to yield multiple benefits, including increased productivity, real-time parameter adaptation to material property variations, and an improved understanding of the formability limits of these new alloys.

kim-cropHyunok Kim, Director of the EWI Forming Center, has written The Development of Intelligent Servo-Controlled Forming Technology to discuss the EWI Forming Center’s work to develop an intelligent servo-controlled forming process that will leverage nondestructive evaluation (NDE) techniques, real-time data acquisition, visual monitoring, and computer-aided engineering (CAE) simulation to develop a process-optimizing control algorithm.
