Reduction in Axial Extrusion Load by Torsional Oscillation in Cold Backward Cup Extrusion

2019 Journal of the Japan Society for Technology of Plasticity  
To reduce axial load in cold backward extrusion, torsional oscillation with a maximum frequency of 1.5 Hz around the extrusion axis was superposed with axial deformation. A cylindrical aluminum workpiece was simultaneously extruded in the axial direction and twisted in the circumferential direction between extrusion and knockout punches with a maximum axial speed of 0.1 mm/s, an alternating amplitude of 5°, and a maximum angular speed of 5 rpm at room temperature. The relationship between the

The maximum reduction in axial load was obtained with approximately 20% in backward extrusion with a reduction in cross-sectional area of 0.51 under rotation/extrusion speeds higher than 60°/mm. The influence of the friction condition, the work-hardening characteristic of the workpiece, and the reduction in cross-sectional area on the reduction in axial load was discussed using the results of finite element simulation.
