Metal forming includes a large group of manufacturing process employed to change the shape of metal work pieces. Some forming processes stretch the metal, while others bend the metal and still others shear the metal. To be successfully formed, there also need to be consideration given to the properties of the metal, desirable of which includes low yield strength and high ductility. This course was designed to help the operational employees to better appreciate the material and processes they are working with.
