This work gives a comprehensive account of the single point incremental manufacturing process. It provides a basic approach to the idea of numerical control and describes the various elements, tools and machines that come under its ambit. The report encompasses the various CAD/CAM techniques used in the manufacturing cells before final production run of a component. It highlights the Single point incremental forming , used for manufacturing the aerospace component for a rocket. It gives an

In Single point incremental forming, the final geometry is generated by the envelopment of all positions assumed by a simple forming tool which deforms a clamped blank. No dies are required differently than any conventional sheet metal forming processes. Although Incremental Sheet Metal Forming (ISMF) concept allows increasing the flexibility and to reduce set up costs, such a process has a negative effect on the shape accuracy by initiating undesired rigid movement, elastic spring back and sheet thinning. Emphasizes the necessity to control process parameters to improve final shape accuracy. To attend to this aim, a finite element analysis is performed in order to study the influence of forming strategy on stainless steel alloy sheet metal to be manufactured by Single Point Incremental Forming. The results will allow to have a better knowledge of parameters effect on parts manufactured by SPIF with the aim to improve their profile accuracy.
