The problem of obtaining sound parts by Incremental Sheet Forming is still a relevant issue, despite the numerous efforts spent in improving the toolpath planning of the deforming punch in order to compensate for the dimensional and geometrical part errors related to springback and punch movement. Usually, the toolpath generation strategy takes into account the variation of the toolpath itself for obtaining the desired final part with reduced geometrical errors. In the present paper, a correction algorithm is used to iteratively correct the part geometry on the basis of the measured parts and on the calculation of the error defined as the difference between the actual and the nominal part geometries. In practice, the part geometry is used to generate a first trial toolpath, and the form error distribution of the resulting part is used for modifying the nominal part geometry and, then, generating a new, improved toolpath. This procedure gets iterated until the error distribution becomes less than a specified value, corresponding to the desired part tolerance. The correction algorithm was implemented in software and used with the results of FEM simulations. In particular, with few iterations it was possible to reduce the geometrical error to less than 0.4 mm in the Incremental Sheet Forming process of an Al asymmetric part, with a resulting accuracy good enough for both prototyping and production processes.
