Use of Electronic Modules on Device for Tribological Research in the Field of Plastic Deformation of Slim Metal Sheets
Electronic modules are important components of manufacturing and research equipment in the field of plastic deformation of sheet metal fabrication, as well as in other processes. Depending on the type and complexity of the production or research process, different electronic modules are also used. The indispensable electronic modules in production as well as experimental (research) systems are: encoders, signal processing, A/D and D/A converters, required software of all levels, all the way to large packages for numerical process simulation. This scientific paper presents an original computerized device for testing tribological influences in plastic deformation of slim (thin) sheet metal forming (fabrication), whose control base consists of electronic modules. Some results are also shown as dependencies, obtained by testing on this developed device.
