Abstract
The service lives of tools in metal forming processes are to a large extent limited by wear, fatigue fracture and plastic deformation, etc. In elevate d temperature forming processes, wear is the predominant factor in the oper ating lives of tools. To predict tool life by wear, Archard's wear model is generally applied. Usually the hardness of a die is considered to be a fun ction of temperature in Archard's model, but the hardness of a die is a fun ction not only of temperature, but also of the operating time of the die. T o consider the softening of a die by repeated operations, it is necessary t o express the hardness of the die by a function of temperature and operatin g time. By experiments into the reheating of dies, die-softening curves hav e been obtained. Finally a modified Archard's wear model, in which the hard ness of the die is expressed as a function of the main tempering curve, is proposed. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science S.A. All rights reserved.
