Abstract

Abstract: This paper presents some developments on the design of a Knowledge-based system approach to generate technologically feasable preforming sequences for multi-stage cold forging of solid and hollow rotationally symmetric parts. The sequences are intended to be initial designs which need additional analyses and evaluations in order to identify the most appropriate forging sequence. The approach is based upon a backward direction of the generative process and takes advantage of the division of the design rules which govern, respectively, (i) the recognition of operations, (ii) determination of the relevant deformation, and (iii) sequencing and grouping of the different operations. © 1988 CIRP.
