Operation of a capacitor bank for plasma metal forming
P Sarkar S Chaturvedi Raj Kumar Rajesh Kumar D Lathi A Shyam J Sonara
Previously metal forming has been done using electromagnet in pulsed power mode, better known as magneform . Here we will be presenting a different technique for metal forming. We are using water as a medium for this process. By discharging the stored electrical energy of the capacitor bank in water, we are getting the desired result i.e. to form (expand or compress) a wide range of workpiece to the desired shapes. The advantage of this method over conventional method is that it uses low power (negligible running cost). It does not require any post assembly cleaning degreasing and is hence environmentally ‘friendly’.
