Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper describes a knowledge-based design tool enabling the generation of hot forging die designs from a component profile. The system integrates the hot forging die design process into a single framework and guides the user through the design process enabling the generation of forgeable geometry from a component profile taking into account machine, material and forging company specific data, and design considerations. The product model manages all the routine engineering tasks. The role of the engineer who interacts with the model is to provide the input specifications such as component geometry, material, and production machine. (c) 2006 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
