Analysis of coining process in production of medallion

Akkuş, Derya
Coins and medallions are manufactured by using coining process which is a metal forming process. In coining of medallions, there is a strong need to shorten the production time and reduce the production cost and waste of material in conventional coining method. An alternative coining method may be considered in order to reduce the production time and the manufacturing cost. In this study, a new method has been proposed. In the proposed method, design of the medallion is performed by utilizing computer aided engineering (CAE) environment and the master die is manufactured by means of NC codes. The modular designs of blanking and coining die sets for medallions with a diameter in the range of 30-90 mm have been realized. Coining and blanking processes for production of the medallion have been simulated by using a commercial finite volume program. Moreover, a commemorative medallion for the opening ceremony of METU-BILTIR Center Forging Research and Application Laboratory has been designed. After die sets have been manufactured, the real-life experiments have been conducted by using 1000 tones mechanical forging press and 200 tones eccentric press available in Forging Research and Application Laboratory of the METU-BILTIR Center. The results have been compared with the computer simulations. After the real-life experiments, it has been observed that medallions have successfully been obtained by employing the new proposed method. Therefore, the new proposed method for coining has been verified.


Analysis of warm forging process
Aktakka, Gülgün; Darendeliler, Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2006)
Forging is a metal forming process commonly used in industry. Forging process is strongly affected by the process temperature. In hot forging process, a wide range of materials can be used and even complex geometries can be formed. However in cold forging, only low carbon steels as ferrous material with simple geometries can be forged and high capacity forging machinery is required. Warm forging compromise the advantages and disadvantages of hot and cold forging processes. In warm forging process, a product...
Experimental and numerical analysis of compression on a forging press
Biçer, Gökhan; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Forging is a metal forming process which involves non-linear deformations. Finite element and finite volume software programs are commonly used to simulate the process. In these simulations, material properties are required. However, stress-strain relations of the materials at some elevated temperatures are not available in the material libraries of the related software programs. In this study, the stress-strain curves have been obtained by applying the Cook and Larke Simple Compression Test to AISI 1045 st...
Design of a touch trigger probe for a coordinate measuring machine
Karuç, Emre; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2007)
Coordinate Measuring Machines (CMMs) have been widely used in industry in order to determine the form / dimensional tolerances of workpieces with very complicated geometrical shapes. Therefore, CMM is an important tool during the manufacturing and quality control phases. Workpiece to be measured on a CMM is probed via touch trigger probe through its stylus tip. In other words, by virtue of the touch trigger probes CMM can acquire the dimensional data of the workpiece that is to be measured. Therefore the pr...
Analysis of roll-forging process
Karacaovalı, Hakan; Gökler, Mustafa İlhan; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
Roll-forging is a metal forming process and mainly used for preform forging of long parts prior to press or hammer forging in the industry. Variable cross sections through the length of billet can be obtained by roll-forging to acquire an adequate distribution of material to the next forging stages. In the design of process and dies used in roll-forging, there are some empirical techniques in literature. However these techniques only provide approximate reduction ratio and elongation during the process and ...
Analysis of tube upsetting
Tüzün, Aydın; Darendeliler, Haluk; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2004)
Producing axi-symmetrical parts with holes from tubular stock by tube upsetting is a frequently used technique in industry. There are basically four types of tube upsetting process; external, internal, simultaneous internal and external upsetting, and expanding of tube. In general, tubular parts require more than one upsetting stage. In industry, generally trial-error methods, which require lots of time and effort depending on experience, are used for the design of stages. Wrong design causes failures durin...
