The effect of process parameters on the energy consumption in Single Point Incremental Forming

Recently, environmental and sustainability concerns have gathered considerable attention in the academic world. Some contributions have been made in this field, but for manufacturing processes, and specially for forming processes this concern has just begun. For this reason, in the present work the influence of the variation of several process parameters in Single Point Incremental Sheet forming has been carried out. Thus, a campaign of experiments with its corresponding statistical analysis has been done. The calculation of CO2emissions for the ISF-formed part, under the Spanish framework, has been also carried out. Spindle speed variation is the most significant parameter, followed by the material and incremental step. From results, an improvement of the combination of process parameters in order to minimize energy consumption will be possible ​
