COMPOSITES MANUFACTURING Materials, Product, and Process Engineering
This paper on Die Manufacturing consists of an overview of the basic die. Also, you can download the PDF version of this paper for free, the link is at the bottom of this article.
Die is a kind of solid or hollow metal of customized shape that is mainly used in stamping or cutting any shapes or coin, embossing, drawing wires, extruding, press, etc. It is a thing that can be customized according to the requirement or necessity.
Along with that, anything from simple to complex shapes can be made through a die. The dies can be used in the formation process or casting process and can be termed as Mould. Die is mainly used in the manufacturing departments of industries.
The sections of the die, which are made for forming or cutting, can be made of special metal and hardenable steel and it is also known as Tool steel. Die Plates, Die Sets and Shoes are made of either aluminum plates or steel plates. In a critical tolerance, these parts are flat or parallel.
So they can be grounded or machined-milled. From these all, the popular one is grinding. So that as ground surface, the milled surface also should be accurate. The die set can be created by attaching lower die shoes and upper die shoes by guide pins. The lower shoe of die contains holes, that are made by flame-cut. These holes help to create scrap and slugs as the die can freely fall on the press. These holes also help as in the clearance of other components as gas springs.
Guide pins are used as guideposts. Guide bushings are used with guide pin to align lower and upper shoes together. Guide pins and guide bushings are the components of precision-ground. They are made of 0.
To install the components in the method of numerous specialty, mounting can be used. Two types of bushings and guide pins are present. They are Ball bearing-style pins and friction pins. Guide bushings are slightly bigger in inside diameter than the pins as they are precision-ground pins.
Bushings are made of a special wear-resistant material known as aluminum-bronze and the guide pins are made of hardenable steel. As the aluminum-bronze contains graphite, so it reduces friction. A special kind of steel block is a heal block. Heal block is screwed, precision-machined, welded and dowelled to lower and upper shoes. At the time of forming process and cutting, side thrust generates.
This thrust is then absorbed by the wear plates and the functional components. The one-directional force may deflect the pins, which can be the cause of misalignment at forming or cutting. So it is necessary to observe that any one-directional force occurred or not. Heel blocks are mostly made of steel heel plates. In the opposite shoe, there is a wear plate that is made of some dissimilar metals like aluminum-bronze.
Heat, cold welding or galling occurs because of the friction made by the same metal in two opposite plates. As in all directions, the die has a heel, box heel blocks are to be used. In another hand, to heel any or all directions, heel blocks are used. Screws secure and fasten the components which are working in both lower and upper shoes. In stamping dies the fastener is the cap screw socket head.
In Milled pockets of die shoes, the key, rectangular, small block, can be inserted. Keys heel and locate the components and the sections of die. Dowels are used to locate the proper location of the die section and die shoes. Dowels are usually precision-ground, hardened pins. At the time of forming and cutting process the pads, flat, pressure loaded plates, used to control and hold the metals.
According to the functions, pads are made from either hardenable tool steel or soft low-carbon steel. At the mating section of the die, it must be closely fit with contoured pads. In stamping dies, there are different types of pads. They are as follows:. At the cutting punches, a stripper pad is used to strip or pull the metals. Stripper pads are usually spring-loaded and flat. When it cut, the metal used to collapse on the shank or body.
The stripper pads used to mount the die shoes, mainly the upper shoe. Before the contact of forming punch with the metal, in the lower section of die, metal has to be taken down. It is done at the time of the wipe bending process. The amount of bending force and the force pressure pad should be equivalent. On the sheets of metals, the amount of downward force and pressure is exerted.
This determines that how much flow in the metal can be agreed and the die cavity by drawing can enter. According to that, flow in metals can be controlled by the draw pads.
The shoes die used to move from up to down. The Spools, Keepers and Shoulder Bolts are used as the fasteners of this movement. By screw or dowels, Spools, Keepers and Shoulder Bolts are secured with lower and upper die shoes. The retainer can be used to secure the components with lower and upper die shoes at the time of forming and cutting process. The popular retainer among all is a ball-lock retainer. It is a high-precision retainer.
It is used to align and secure the forming and cutting punches accurately. It uses a spring-loaded ball-bearing. In the teardrop shape, the spring-loaded ball-bearings are locked not to come out the punches. This ball-lock retainer gives advantages to the technicians to reinstall the punches by removing it quickly. Spring is a component that can be used to supply force to the strip, form metal and hold it.
Different springs can be used here. Most popular springs are gas spring, coil and urethane springs. Gas springs are filled by nitrogen. It helps by giving a good amount of force. Coil spring is used, when there is a need for the force of a reasonable amount.
Urethane spring is worked at short-run stamping. These Coil and Urethane springs are also known as Marshmallow spring. According to the use in the operation of sheet metal, die are of six types. These are:. The Combination die is that die where at one stage, multiple forming and cutting operation can be done by one stroke. Such examples of combination die are as follows:.
Multiple operations of cutting can be performed in a stroke. But blanking is the last operation as different punch sheets and stages are progressing to complete the operation of punching from one to another stage.
Transfer die is that die which is the same as the progressive die. With that here, the first operation is the blanking. So that as a first stage, black procedure travels one to another stage and completes the punching. To make a die, so many materials are needed to be present. These contain so many steels of different kinds and the material of non-metallic and the casting of non-ferrous and ferrous. Manganese 0. Carbon Block Steel contains manganese 0.
It contains about chromium Other elements, Tungsten, Nickel, and Vanadium can add to this steel. This Chromium Air Hardening Steel contains chromium 5. It contains chromium The carbon varies between 1. In the aircraft manufacturing process as well as in some other cases a die needs to be developed by a die maker through different materials that can be a better choice rather than using some cast steels or steels.
Although, a die maker needs enormous practice and skill to do the same thing. This type of scenario occurs during the die making that related to aircraft manufacturing to reduce the material utilization cost.
Apart from that, it is also true that the quality of metal that is produced through magnesium or aluminum may not be up to the mark as compared to the quality of cast steel or steel.
