Can metal shields be ordered on-demand and on time? Probably no one would think that this is very likely. However, one company can do this. The plug-in company Smart Bending Factory SBF , situated in the Netherlands, developed and implemented a web-based portal through which customers can order their metal sheets and tubes on-demand through the Internet. It allows to offer one dedicated product almost at the production cost of a product from a series of products. The SOPHIA technology calculates how many parts are required, analyses all the characteristics of the parts, and how it can be manufactured.
Pipeline Bending Strain Assessment using ILI Tools: A Case Study
The average penetrations measured in the specimens were: The results show that R mortars had more capillary suction than mortars with WTS. The results of capillary tests show that the pores in R mortars had smaller dimension than WTS mortars and then the water suction was higher. The large pores in mortars with WTS difficult the capillary effect Liu et al.
By using solid elements in the forming simulation, JSTAMP allows users to evaluate deformations during ironing, oining, burring, bending thick sheet, and ultraprecision Sheet metal forming, which shell elements cannot deal with. Evaluation based on the thinning rate contour can be performed. The product geometry after burring is represented accurately. The simulation is applicable to various processes, including ironing, coining, and burring broadening a hole.
