Optimization of Process Parameters of Straight Line Laser Forming Process for V-Shaped Micro Component
Author Name : Kesar Bai
Laser forming is thermo mechanical process in which a sheet metal is formed in to a desired shape without using external force. No direct contact with the work piece, so it is a non contact type process. The aim of this study is to form “V” shaped component through straight line laser forming. Experimental set up for straight line laser forming has been developed. A parametric study has been carried out to study effect of process parameters i.e. thickness of sheet metal, feed and no. of pass. DOE has been performed to optimize process parameters. Also ANOVA method is used to evaluate most dominant factor to affect the bending angle and temperature difference.
