Metal forming is regarded as one of the most important manufacturing processes that is widely adopted within different industries. The metal forming techniques are applied in mass manufacturing set-ups for a large variety of products, however, tribological phenomena that occur during contact between the tool and workpiece are still insufficiently considered. In conventional sheet forming processes, normal loading and sliding motions occur which generate frictional forces that can significantly affect the quality of the process and the product. The frictional behavior during tool-workpiece contact, being prone to temperature variations during start-up, is especially hard to predict and control. This research project focuses on the tribological phenomena regarding the temperature dependent friction model in a two-step deep drawing process. The FEM analysis consists of three different sets of frictional studies that have been simulated within MSC Marc and provide the outcomes of frictional behavior within the two-step deep draw process
