Abstract

Some of the different techniques for shaping sheet and bulk metal to near-net shape are surveyed and the special features of these processes are discussed. The net or near-net shape processes which are considered in this work include blanking, shearing, piercing, forging, isostatic pressing, superplastic forming and squeeze forming. Further, for these processes, typical equipment requirements, profiles of components after deformation and the possible incorporation of CAD/CAM into the net-shape manufacturing schedule are also discussed.
