Optimization of Spring Back in Air V Bending Processing using Taguchi and RSM Method
Keywords:Springback, Air V bending, Taquchi and Response Surface Method (RSM)
In this study, springback behaviour of Dp600 (Dual Phase Steel) sheet material was investigated using air V bending technique. As bending parameters, four different punch tip radii and four different sheet thicknesses were used. The springback values obtained from the experiments were compared with each other. At the same time, the experimental data were analysed with Response Surface Method (RSM) and Taguchi (L16) orthogonal array. The experimental data and the simulation results were found to be consistent. The signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio is used to determine the most appropriate parameter of minimum springback behaviour. Additionally, it is possible to estimate the optimal combination of the bending parameters. The signal-to-noise (S/N) ratio and the design of experiment (DOE) were utilised for the analysis of the experimental results. It was determined that the effect of these parameters on the air V bending process was based on springback behaviours.
