The Development of an Online Knowledge Based System to assist the Designers of Forging Process

The objective of this project is to develop an interactive system to help the forging process designers, mechanical/manufacturing/industrial engineering and technology faculty, and students by giving them the necessary production information about the forging manufacturing process, and also to lead them with a methodological approach in the earlier stages of the forging related design process. This paper will report the current development efforts.

1. Introduction

The manufacture of forged products is a process of forming metal under impact or pressure1-5. Often the workpiece is heated in order to reduce strength and increase ductility during the deformation. In this system part design, process design, and material selection are automatically calculated and some recommendations are given to users, so the designers do not deal with the real design problems. In this interactive online tool development, the system has been structured by using the Active Server Pages (ASP) technique. An interactive website is prepared that helps a remote designer to design forging parts based on various input parameters provided. The website also provides a fundamental knowledge about forging processes. Assessment data of the current development has been collected from senior level manufacturing technology course students, and forging industry experts.

2. Web Based Forging System

The forging website helps any designer by giving the required design and process information about the metal forging process (Figure 1). The user can find some definitions and equations about forging process from this site (Figure 2-5). Various types of forging processes are presented1, 2. Figure 6 shows the page about open die forging and how to calculate the required operation force3. This interactive website has important design tools for blocker design, flash and gutter design and billet size calculations. Preform stages are defined in the blocker design page and blocker dimensions are recommended to the user according to the given input conditions (Figure 7).
