Experimental Research on the Impact of Thin-Wall Ratio and the Fillet Radius of Forming Roller on the Limiting Spinning Ratio of AMS 5504 Sheets

Open access


Results of experimental investigations of metal spinning process of AMS 5504 sheets. cylindrical drawpieces with use of discs-shaped sheet with various diameter and thickness were shown in this work. Tests were performed on two roller metal spinning machine of a vertical axis Leifeld SFC 800 V500.

The main objective of the study was to determine the dependence between limiting spinning coefficient, thin wall ratio coefficient and the fillet radius of forming rollers. To realize this aim required the development of an original methodology and experimental research plan. Determined relationship takes into account the occurrence of negative phenomena in the process of spinning such as wrinkling or cracking of material.

Due to the possibility of prediction of these negative phenomena, determined relationship is used in the design of a metal spinning processes. On the basis on determined relationship can be done a practical assessment of the possibility of shaping with certain geometrical parameters by spinning. Obtained results were shown graphically on the diagrams and their analysis was carried.
