Powder Compaction of a Rotational Flanged Component

Application ID: 89401


The powder compaction process is becoming common in the manufacturing industry, thanks to its potential to produce components of complex shape and high strength. In this example, the compaction of iron powder to form an axisymmetric rotational flanged component is analyzed with Capped Drucker-Prager plastic model. The friction between the metal powder and die is taken into account.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
