Abstract

Incremental sheet metal forming (ISF) is a new technology for flexible process that has sprung up in the world used in metal sheet manufacturing. In fact, this is one kind of point press process, using the theory of “layered manufacturing”. This process can produce a large forming limit and complex shape sheet metal with pre-programmed control point by point by numerical control equipment without special mold or by simple mold. This chapters introduces the forming principle of ISF and the different variants. Then the research progress of the ISF technology and the equipment of ISF are also introduced in detail. Finally, based on the principle and deformation mechanism of ISF, the key forming process at different temperatures and different materials are investigated by using the combination of numerical simulation and experiment.
