70 kJ, 25 kV Electromagnetic Manufacturing Equipment (EME)

70 kJ, 25 kV Electromagnetic Manufacturing Equipment (EME) is the first Indian equipment based on indigenous technology. Electromagnetic manufacturing process is the state of art technology for shaping and joining of metals based on electromagnetic forming and electromagnetic welding. In these techniques, forming and welding are achieved without physical contact between tool and job piece. Hence it has obvious merits over conventional processes such as brazing, welding, expansion, contraction, contour formation etc., when used for some special applications. This sophisticated technique has many advantages such as precision, reproducibility, high production rate, no tool marks, minimization of manual error, automation ease, etc. The preparatory procedures such as preheating, lubrication, etc. are not needed. Electromagnetic Welding is suitable for 1mm thick flat sheets of various metals such as Al-Al, Al-SS, Al-Cu, and Al-Al (alloy).This technique has great potential in automobile, electric, defense, aeronautical and other industries.

  • The EM welding technique has great potential in automobile, electric, defense, aeronautical and other industries.

ADVANTAGES
The main advantages of EM Forming/Welding over conventional techniques are as follows :

  • The electromagnetic pulse can be controlled to high degree of accuracy and hence the forming is highly repeatable.
  • The operation of the equipment is simple which consists of charging and discharging of capacitors.
  • The process does not require lubrication and leaves no tool marks.
  • The joints made are stronger than the parent material unlike in all the other processes.
  • Hardening takes place due to high strain rate forming, which is favorable.
  • During the process of forming, the material is impact loaded into plastic region, resulting into permanent deformation.
  • Field shapers can be used along with the machine and forming coil.
  • Jobs of different geometry and material can be formed by changing the energy, coil and/or the field shaper. This can bring down the tooling cost considerably.
  • The E.M.F. process being a non contact method, the preparatory procedures such as lubrication, cleaning are not required.
  • The automation becomes easy because of elimination of manual procedures.
  • It is a green process (no smoke).

WORKING PRINCIPLE
These techniques are based on Lorentz force to achieve the required goal. The force is generated when a high voltage charged capacitor bank discharges through a forming/displacement coil placed in the proximity of work piece. The force developed is on account of interaction of induced current in the work piece with the magnetic field produced by the coil. In these techniques, forming and welding are achieved without physical contact between tool and job piece.
