SheetMetal Forming and Assembling

SheetMetal Forming and Assembling THE modern aeroplane is constructed largely from sheet metal. As such, the most important production problems are those of sheet metal forming, and assembling. Production is here considered as not only the act of forming and assembling the required number of parts, but also the making of forming tools, and all processing of parts such as heattreating. Only that phase of the above concept of production which deals with the tooling for production and the forming and heattreating will be considered here. The design of the aircraft parts will also be discussed somewhat, for it is obvious that the design of the part designed shape and materials used frequently determines whether the part can or cannot be readily made. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology Emerald Publishing

Abstract

THE modern aeroplane is constructed largely from sheet metal. As such, the most important production problems are those of sheet metal forming, and assembling. Production is here considered as not only the act of forming and assembling the required number of parts, but also the making of forming tools, and all processing of parts such as heattreating. Only that phase of the above concept of production which deals with the tooling for production and the forming and heattreating will be considered here. The design of the aircraft parts will also be discussed somewhat, for it is obvious that the design of the part designed shape and materials used frequently determines whether the part can or cannot be readily made.
