DESIGNING A FLATTENING, PUNCHING AND TRIMMING DEVICE FOR STEEL TUBES
This paper presents the design of a device for flattening, trimming, and punching circular or rectangular profile steel tubes on a hydraulic press. The device was adapted to the available machinery and to the parts to be manufactured in order to satisfy the requirements imposed by the company. Using the relations found in literature, the flattening, trimming, and punching loads were calculated. The results were used in order to validate the design and dimensioning process using Finite Element Analysis in the Solidworks Simulation module.
