Abstract

Nowadays lightweight design in metal forming processes leads to complex deep drawing geometries, which can cause multiple damages. Therefore, drawbeads are one way to regulate and control material flow during the forming process. Not only in research, but also in industrial practice, it could be determined that material is work hardened passing drawbead geometries. It particularly means when material is pre-deformed with tensile and alternating bending loads. This incident also gives the opportunity to utilize it in a reasonable way if examined properly. To investigate these findings, a process oriented and comprehensive analysis of the material behaviour during these forming operations is needed. In this paper, sheet metal strips are linearly drawn through a drawbead and stopped after passing the drawbead. Within this forming operation, the material undergoes non-linear straining before reaching the in-plane position again. Here, the process will be stopped to investigate a permanent strengthening local along the sheet thickness. Therefore, microhardness measurements are realized before and after passing the drawbead. Because of its common use and its wide known material data, a deep drawing steel DC will be used for these studies. Additionally, the strategy is applied to advanced high strength steel.
