Abstract

Flow forming process is an advanced echo-friendly chip less metal forming process which is used to manufacture a large variety of thin walled axi-symmetric shapes from plates or preforms.This process has several advantages like improved mechanical properties and surface quality for a finished part. Components produced through this process are widely used in aerospace and missile applications. In the present work, the experiments were carried out on a single roller CNC Flow forming Machine. This present paper deals with the manufacturing methodology and experimental findings during the course of development and production of these tubes. The effect of roller attack angle on surface finish and ovality are studied.
