Expert System in the Cold Forging of Steel

Chapter

Summary

The cold forging of steel can greatly reduce material waste, ensure good surface finish and tolerances in the manufacture of engineering components. For its full potential to be realised, the assistance of experienced process planning engineers is essential in the product design stage in design for cold forging, and in the pre-production stage when they are needed to establish the sequence of operations and be responsible for tooling and other equipment. Expert systems could be of’ great value in this application, by making the knowledge of the human expert more easily accessible and widely available.
