Spring back optimization in deep drawing using cuckoo search algorithm
Deep drawing is a one of the most important manufacturing process that is used extensively in the forming of sheet metal parts. It is used widely for mass production of hollow shapes in the packing industry. Deep drawing is the tensile compressive forming of a sheet blank .The friction between the work piece and the tool has a great influence on the process. Springback in sheet metal forming are influenced by parameters such as Blank Holder Force, Coefficient of friction, Radius on die and radius on punch. To find the springback between the die and work piece reduce the cost of product. The main objective of the deep drawing of sheet metal process is to produce good quality product. Cuckoo Optimization Algorithm is based on the life of a bird called cuckoo. Egg laying and breeding are Special characteristics of cuckoos and had been the basic motivation for development of this algorithm. All the cuckoo population moves to one best habitat with maximum similarity of eggs to the host birds and also with the maximum food resources. This habitat will produce the maximum profit ever. There will be least egg losses in this best habitat. Convergence of more than 95% of all cuckoos to the same habitat puts an end to Cuckoo Optimization Algorithm (COA). This paper describes the optimization of springback in deep drawing process by using cuckoo search algorithm.
