Tools and Redundancy

  • T. Z. Blazynski


The efficiency of the tools designed on the basis of either CRHS or CMSR concepts can best be assessed by considering the reduction in the levels of redundancy achieved in a number of individual processes. The present chapter is concerned entirely with an examination of metal flow through geometrically different, but theoretically related, zones of deformation, and also with a comparison between the redundant effects in passes so designed and those often used in industrially operated processes.
