Abstract: Incremental sheet forming is popularly applied because of its reduced cost, flexibility, and applicability for small batch production. To reduce the manufacturing cost and time consumption, the incremental forming of a complex shape is implemented by combining two forming methods into one process: positive and negative incremental forming. The experiments were done to confirm the applicable ability of the method with the material aluminium Al3004-P. The finite element simulation was done with the ABAQUS explicit finite element code, and its results were compared with the experimental results.
