Summary The aim of this paper is to improve the understanding of deformation of micro medical needle and thread during assembly and then to develop an economical and flexible deformation method. Therefore, the swaging process is computationally simulated with the finite element method in this paper. A commercially available explicit nonlinear finite element analysis code, LS-Dyna, is used to model the 3-D deformation and contact problem. As the firmness of the assembly on the needle depends on the contact force and friction, the contact and the slide between the needle and thread are taken into account in the simulation. The general surface-to-surface contact algorithm (STS) is used to simulate the contact. The paper provides an insight into the deformation of the micro products.
