CAD/CAM, rapid prototyping, metal hammering, incremental forming, range finder
This study deals with the automation of metal hammering using an industrial robot and trial development of rapid prototyping of sheet metal forming. Computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) takes into account feedback considering tool positioning by using a range finder to improve depth and shape error at workpiece corners. Experimental results confirmed that our proposal reduces shape error through tool positioning optimization.
