State of the art of theory and technology of incremental forming

Abstract

On the basis of the literature review carried out, the article assesses the current state and development trends of the theory and technology of incremental forming – a promising technological process for rapid prototyping of parts from sheet blanks. The basics of the process and the equipment for its implementation, the mechanism of deformation during incremental forming are described. The developed solution for exporting the trajectory of the deforming tool from the CAM to the CAE system is described.
