Abstract

The aim of this work is to improve the inverse stamping methodand increase its robustness. The first, crucial step of inverse stamping is the reduction of the three-dimensional part into a two-dimensional flat plane. There are several methods for reducing the dimension. These are geometrical methods, methods based on graph theory and stochastic methods. We examine the last two methods because of their reliability. These methods can even be used for geometrically complex structures which include holes, hooks and walls perpendicular to the flat plane. An algorithm which combines several methods for dimension reduction is proposed for use for a wide range of parts. Deep drawing is a widely used technology in theautomotive industry and inverse stamping is a useful development tool.
