Mechanics of micro cross wedge manufacturing

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • This project aims to produce components in the sub-millimetre range using cross wedge rolling, to understand the mechanics of making micro products, and the surface effects of the workpiece and tools on the formability of micro components. This innovative technology will have many significant applications worldwide, and will enable the production of micro products with high efficiency and enhance Australian precision manufacturing. The outputs of this project include the development of a comprehensive model of crystal plasticity and finite element method to simulate micro manufacturing, considering friction, surface roughness of the workpiece and tools, and mechanics of cross wedge rolling micro products.
