Abstract

One of the most critical problems in cold forging is the huge stresses generated from the deformation of metal leads to die failure. The distribution of stresses mainly depends on geometry of the die. An approach to optimal design in cold forging die geometry and orientation are presented in this paper. The impression cold forging dies of the Universal joint was generated using three-dimensional CAD modeling software, SolidWorks. This CAD modeling software coupled with FEA tools, COSM OSWorks. The paper emphasizes on effect of the corner radius and dies orientation on stress distribution.
