Mounting and adjusting of tool parts or correction of blank holder forces in deep drawing operations can be optimised by minimising acoustic emission due to influence of boundary layer friction and wrinkling. Critical friction surfaces can be monitored with consideration to the wear of the friction surfaces. The momentary acoustic emission contains information about the status of wear at the friction surfaces and if the wear is a wear-in or a wear-out process.
Unexpected events like fractures and galling results in distinct and abnormal increase in acoustic emission. The acoustic emission contains information that can be used to improve or monitor the forming operation. These conclusions are results from studies of different forming operations and measuring of acoustic emission in the forming tool both at the productions lines at the sheet metal forming industry and laboratory tests at Lund University.
