Flexible roll forming is a high efficiency sheet metal forming process for producing variable cross section profiles. Also spring-back is one of the most important problems in flexible roll forming process. Spring-back is severe during the unloading phase of bending and greatly affects the forming accuracy of the bending parts. In this paper, the spring-back of the flexible roll forming in different temperature have been studied using finite element analysis. The simulation is elaborated by using ABAQUS software linked to elastic–plastic modules which we developed taking into account of interactions between these fields. According to finite element analysis results, the bending after roll forming has been analyzed. Therefore, we can make the comparison of the spring-back and forming force under different temperature from the finite element analysis. A flexible roll forming setup was developed and some parameters in the simulation have been discussed. AZ31 magnesium alloys were used in the simulation and assumed the material is isotropic.
