Research on orbital cold forging for the edge cam of an automobile fuel injection pump
The experimental investigation and theoretical analysis of an orbital cold forging of an edge cam was explored. The effects of blank shape and the process parameters on the edge cam forming are discussed. Photoplastic technology was successfully applied to the simulation of an orbital cold forging process applied to an edge cam. The China-made polycarbonate (PCBA) was used as a simulation material, and a 3-D strain distribution was obtained inside the model materials, which provided theoretical guidance for optimizing process parameters on the orbital cold forging of the edge cam. The factors that caused a crack were identified and the deformation laws in orbital cold forging of an edge cam were clarified. The metal flow line, hardness, microstructures and accuracy of the orbital cold forged edge cam were found to meet the required service properties of the product.
