Abstract

The mechanisation of traditional craft processes can serve as a starting point for novel process development in the increasingly topical field of flexible metal forming. This approach presents several challenges, including understanding the underlying mechanics, mechanisation, and providing suitable control methods for such processes. Here, we focus on the underlying mechanics of the process known as the English wheel. In this work, the process is studied through validated numerical modelling techniques. The influence of various geometrical parameters is examined and the possible patterns of plastic deformation are presented.
