Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
Incremental Forming (IF) is a dieless manufacturing technique, in which sheet metal is plastically deformed to the desired shape of the product, by a series of small incremental steps using a punch. However, parts formed by IF suffer from poor geometrical accuracy, high surface roughness and formability issues, which limits its use in industry. This project proposes the development of a novel Double-Sided Incremental Forming (DISF) technology by integrating adaptive and dynamic support tool path strategies with ultrasonic vibrations assisted sheet forming strategies at room temperature and elevated temperature (i.e., warm forming), aka ET-IF to achieve improved product quality. The TRL level of the technology is TRL 7.


Applications: The applications of the technology is in ready to use customized or low-batch size products development in the domains of Automobile, Biomedical Engineering, Defense, Aerospace, Nuclear sciences.
Advantages: The advantages that allow ISF to be developed as a viable solution for sheet metal products can be listed as follows: 1. The technology is very convenient to produce customized/low-batch sized parts, as it does not require process or part specific tooling due to which the setup costs is largely negligible. 1.ISF is a highly flexible process, and it is possible to simply modify the machine part program so that the product shape is changed. 2.Due to the stress state induced during tool movement, the formability is greater than that of traditional stamping. 3.ISF is suitable to make parts for replacement, such as for automotive parts where there is a lack of dies and tooling for a one-off part, and it can also be used for rapid prototyping of new products. 4.The contact surface is small, and the forces during the forming process are low so the amount of lubricant required is reduced as compared to conventional sheet metal forming.

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
