Abstract:

The Phase 1 effort on Intelligent Metal Forming Processes was performed with the objective of determining feasibility of the application of process control technology within the forming industry. The result of this development was a three-stage approach to velocity control for microstructural optimization. The overall work effort was divided into three components 1 Development of open-loop control procedure for forming processes, 2 Industrial consortium development and market technical survey on the most important process control needs, and 3 Development of specifications for the neutral data to facilitate open-loop control with a multitude of control objectives. The Phase II effort plan will be developed in response to the recommendations of the industrial consortium so as to make maximum impact on the U.S. manufacturing industry.
