The tribological aspects of cold metal forming processes is reviewed. Special attention is paid to rolling and stamping operations as these are typical of bulk forming and sheet forming processes, respectively, and are the most important commercial processes. It is shown that a better understanding of tribological fundamentals, as applied to cold metal forming, can result in better lubrication systems and process models.
