Finite element modelling of cold drawing for high-precision tubes

Abstract : Cold tube drawing is a metal forming process that allows manufacturers to produce high-precision tubes. The dimensions of the tube are reduced by pulling it through a conical converging die with or without inner tool. In this study, finite element modelling has been used to give a better understanding of the process. This paper presents a model that predicts the final dimensions of the tube with very high accuracy. It is validated thanks to experimental tests. Moreover, five studies are performed with this model, such as investigating the influence of the die angle on the drawing force or the influence of relative thickness on tube deformation
