Thermomechanical Effects In Laser Microprocessing For Dieless Metal Wire Drawing
Dieless drawing; Fine wires; High-temperature stress; Laser microprocessing; Thermomechanical effects
A new dieless metal fiber drawing process using a laser beam as a high-precision heat source, was developed. The advantages of this technique include larger diameter reduction ratio, lack of dies and lubricants and the flexibility to draw fine wires of different diameters with the same apparatus. It is helpful for the fabrication of fine wires which require high-quality surface without any contamination. During microprocessing the thermochemical behaviors of wires were also analyzed. In determining the deformation behavior and plasticity of the wire during the drawing process the temperature profile generated by laser heating is critical.
