Rapid Prototyping for Sheet-Metal Forming
Rapid prototyping (RP) techniques in the sheet-metal forming industry is developed to quickly test the form and fit of new sheet-metal products on a prototype basis as well as for production runs characterized by small lot sizes. This article provides an overview of some of the technologies used for RP and low-volume production of sheet-metal parts. It discusses low-cost tooling and flexible sheet-forming processes and reviews the various aspects of incremental sheet forming.
