Material Flow in Ultrasonic Orbital Microforming
AbstractUltrasonic orbital microforming—UOM—uses the broadly understood idea of orbital forging but uses very different laws of physics. The only shaping force in this process is the inertia force resulting from the acceleration in the rotary motion of the workpiece. Micro specimen blanked from cold rolled aluminum sheet metal was used in the applied UOM process. Only the upper and lower part of the sample is deformed that gives about 70% of volume. The rest—the middle part—remains undeformed. The final shape of the product is influenced by the shape of the inside of the die in which the UMO process is carried out. However, this effect is not a direct one. The product shape does not repeat the shape of the interior of the die. The preliminary experiments with modular micro-die have been performed on the way of controlling the shape of deformed micro-objects. The microstructure analysis has been done as well as micro-hardness distribution. View Full-Text
