The objective is to develop and model this new sheet
metal, rapid prototyping technique aimed at producing
complex sheet metal components without the use of dies.
Four visiting researchers have made an input to the project
An international ISF group has been formed with members from 6 countries (Canada, Germany, Italy, Belgium, Japan and the UK)
Bath organised an international group meeting in November 2004, that was partially funded by EPSRC.
The group is to co-author a key note paper in the Annals of CIRP 2005.
The researcher is to have an extended research visit to the group in Italy.
