Heating of a Thin Area on a Sheet before Bending in a Press Brake: Study on the Versatility of the IR Heating Technology

Research output: Book/ReportOther report

Abstract

This paper focused on the assessment of the effectiveness of using IR technology as a preheating method for titanium bending operations. Bending trials were completed with samples at room temperature and with samples which had been pre-heated using the IR heating system to 350°C.
All non-fractured bent samples presented springback phenomena regardless of the bending die and punch dimensions, or their temperature during the bending process. However, the pre-heated material showed an improved formability when compared with data available within literature.
