Abstract

In this thesis, the results of an experimental analysis of blanking angled hooks with a punch of a sloping face in a thin steel sheet with a hardness of 55 HRC are presented. The blanking punch was made of K340 cold-work tool steel. Tests were carried out for three values of clearance, 5%, 10%, and 15% of sheet thickness. The results of the analysis of the influence of the number of cuts made by the punch on the growth of the burr at the sheet edge were presented. Moreover, the influences of the clearance on the initial values of burr (bh), deflection (Hb), and the bending radius (Rb) of the hook have been shown. The influence of the friction path on the intensity of degradation of working surfaces and the blanking edges of the punch was also demonstrated. The obtained results allow the selection of the proper clearance and new tool materials for blanking blades working in particularly difficult tribological conditions. View Full-Text
