Aluminium sheet. 0.1mm to 1.6mm thicknesses available (see drop down box). Aluminium sheet has a blue/silver appearance and is very strong but is lightweight making it ideal for model making and design applications. Can also be used for car body repairs, kitchen splash backs, sign making and jewellery.

Simulation approach for friction and lubrication modelling in sheet metal forming simulations. 2.2. Tribology system: Sheet material, Tool material and lubrication The sheet material used for both applications presented in this paper is an AL6-OUT Aluminium sheet material with a sheet thickness of 1mm and an EDT surface texture.


The integrity of steel-aluminium dissimilar alloy joints is dependent on the thermal cycle applied during the joining process. The thermal field has a direct influence on the growth of the intermetallic compounds (IMC), which result from the reaction between iron (Fe) and aluminium (Al), but it also determines the size of the bonding area of the joint.

STUDIES ON TESTING AND MODELLING OF FORMABILITY IN ALUMINIUM ALLOY SHEET FORMING Summary In this paper, the influence of tensile and formability parameters on the forming limit diagram is reported and a model is created to predict the forming limit strains of various grades of aluminium sheet metals. Aluminium alloys of grades AA5052, AA6061 and

CiteSeerX - Document Details (Isaac Councill, Lee Giles, Pradeep Teregowda): ABSTRACT: The formability of Al–Mg sheet can be improved considerably, by increasing the temperature. At elevated temperatures, the mechanical response of the material becomes strain rate dependent. To accurately simulate warm forming of aluminium sheet, a material model is required that incorporates the

Nov 12, 2019· The applicability of plastic tools additively manufactured by fused deposition modelling for sheet metal forming processes was evaluated. Aluminium and steel sheets were V-bent and deeply drawn with the plastic tools. The dimensional accuracy of bent sheets with the plastic tools was lower than that with steel tools due to low stiffness, and deteriorated with increasing flow stress of a sheet.

The quality demands of shape characteristics of strips have especially been increased recently by the modern industrial branches processing strips. The final shape of sheet is influenced by the construction and stiffness of mill stand and the shaping parameters through the deformation patterns of roll gap. The purpose of our research work was the modelling of shape-defects (crown) developing


The complete through-process modelling of crystallographic texture evolution during aluminium sheet production is addressed. The texture determining processes deformation and recrystallization are analysed with respect to the underlying mechanisms. The advanced deformation texture model grain interaction (GIA) is coupled to a statistical analytical recrystallization texture model (StaRT).
