Abstract

Metal forming processes are continually being modified and enhanced in order to obtain products with improved functional properties and to gain new production opportunities and economical benefits. Novel incremental bulk metal forming techniques provide the potential to achieve both these goals. There has been a number of innovative processes developed relatively recently that are based on the incremental forming approach. The paper presents several examples of such processes developed and currently investigated in Polish universities and institutes: KOBO extrusion, forging and rolling aided by additional shear stress, cyclic extrusion-compression as well as forging with a segmented punch. The main features of these forming methods, their benefits and possible application areas have been described.

Keywords: incremental, forming, SPD, KOBO, CEC, shear stress, strain path, extrusion, forging, rolling
