Cutting force

F= A x Tß
F = Cutting force
S = Material thickness
L = Total cutting length
A = L x S = Shear area

Tß = Shear strength
Note : Shear strength = 80% of tensile strength

Stripping force
P= ( L x S x Tß ) / 10
P = Stripping force
S = Material thickness
L = Total cutting length
A = L x S = Shear area

Tß = Shear strength
L = a + ( R + q x s/2 )( Pi x ° / 180)
L = Flat blank length
a, b = Length of legs
R = Bend radius
q = Correction factor ( refer to table below )
° = Bend angle
Pi = 3.1416

Correction factor
Correction factor q
Ratio R : s 5.0 3.0 2.0 1.2 0.8 0.5
Correction factor 1.0 0.9 0.8 0.7 0.6 0.5
R = Bend radius
S = Material thickness
E = ( D + s ) 0.707
C = ( D + s ) 1.414

E = Center distance
C = Center distance between two apart radii
s = Material thickness
D = Inside diameter of final formed part
R = D/2 ( approximate )
Note : if R = D/2, radii will be tangent, if R /= D/2, radii will require blending.

H = Draw piece height
D = Mean diameter of draw piece
Draw % of reduction
% = 1 -( MD / D )
% = percentage of reduction
MD = Mean diameter of draw piece
D = Flat blank diameter
A = 0.7854 (( DXD )-(dXd))
D = Flat blank diameter
d = Hole diameter
A = 3.1416 ( D x H )
D = Mean diameter
H = Shell height
A= 4.935 RD + 6.283 (R x R)
D = Hole diameter
R = Radius ( 1/2 thickness )
A= 4.935 RD - 6.283 (R x R)
D = Outer diameter
R = Radius ( 1/2 thickness )
A= 6.283 ( R x R )
R = Radius ( 1/2 thickness )
A = 6.283 RH
R = Radius ( 1/2 thickness )
H = Shell height
A = 9.87 RD
D = center to center diameter
R = Radius ( 1/2 thickness )
