Thermoforming is a forming technique in which petrochemical-based thermoplastics, biodegradable plastics and also plastic composites can be formed. Due to recent developments in the packaging industry, it was understood that biodegradable plastics could replace petrochemical-based engineering plastics. In this study, a biodegradable Green Polyethyl...

The expected life of a gear is important parameter especially for the gears to secure of the mechanics of it. Related to this importance, fatigue failure is one of the most seen failures occurred on gears working under cyclic loads. It is not possible to eliminate fatigue failure effects but it is possible to reduce by appropriate materials selecti...

Finding the optimal die angle for a metal extrusion process is of great importance since it affects the quality of the extrusion products. In present study, a series of finite element simulations were carried out to investigate the influence of die angle on the extrusion temperature and extrusion load. Six different die angles; 15, 30, 60, 90, 120...

Lateral extrusion was introduced as a branch of extrusion in which the workpiece material contained in an injection chamber is injected into a die cavity in a form which is prescribed by the exit geometry and it can be explained by combined axial and radial flow of material to fill the die cavity. Lateral extrusion has several advantages, such as l...

Lateral extrusion, sometimes called injection upsetting, offers a product with central boss section having complete or segmented protrusions. Collar flanges, spur gear forms, spline or taper with shaft are examples of the products of produce by lateral extrusion. The aim of this study is to investigate the lateral extrusion of gear-like spline form...

The aim was to redesign and manufacture of a shovel for a pull-type land levelling machine, which, in its present condition, is used to get easily damaged even under low loads. Firstly, the maximum pulling load affecting the levelling shovel was experimentally determined. Then, stable-shovel system with the bolt connection was replaced with a beari...

Some results of an industrial research and development project aimed to develop the manufacturing technologies of gear pumps were presented. Gear blanks of gear pumps that have traditionally been produced by machining from round bars in an industrial company were closed-die forged as an alternative. A comparison method of mechanical properties of t...

The finite element method has become a powerful tool for the numerical solution of a wide range of engineering problems. In this method of analysis, a complex region defining a continuum is discretized into simple geometric shapes called finite elements. On the other hand study of extrusion process has been of interest for long time due to its in...

Metal flow of extrusion-forging process is similar to that of the initial pre-forging of closed-die forging and the process is frequently preferred in the forming process of high strength parts. In many metal forming processes such as closed-die forging or extrusion/forging, the deforming material changes its flow direction at various stages during...
