Abstract

The impact of the development of Industry 4.0 on the manufacturing industry from the perspective of flexible forming is described in this chapter. Faced with the trend of increasing consumer demand for personalized customization in the future, this article introduces the shortcomings of traditional manufacturing and the technical barriers that need to be overcome in the future of the manufacturing industry. According to the structural characteristics of special-shaped curved surfaces and complex hollow tube metal products, the basic working principles and application scenarios of corresponding flexible forming technologies are introduced, and the development of flexible forming technologies such as spinning, three-dimensional free bending forming, and progressive forming in the field of metal product manufacturing is explained. The status quo and the latest research results, based on the development of a new generation of information technology, further summarize the typical characteristics and development trends of flexible forming technology from the aspects of flexible forming equipment, forming technology, material system, and motion control, and further summarize the “intelligent flexible The basic operation mode of “manufacturing plant” was discussed.
