In order to find the effect of lubricant viscosity, sheet surface roughness, tool geometry, and forming speed on the frictional characteristics in sheet metal forming, a sheet metal friction tester was designed and manufactured and friction test of various sheet were performed. Friction test results showed that as the lubricant viscosity becomes lower, the friction coefficient is higher. When surface roughness is extremely low or high, the friction coefficient is relatively high. The result also show that as the punch radius and punch speed becomes bigger, the friction coefficient is smaller. Using experimental results, the mathematical expression between friction coefficient and lubricant viscosity, surface roughness, punch corner radius, or punch speed is also described.
