Micro Metal Forming (forming parts and features with dimensions below 1 mm) is a young area of research in metal forming technologies. The essential challenges arise from reduced geometrical size and increased lot size. To enable potential users to apply micro metal forming in production, information about the following topics are given: tribological behavior; friction between tool and work piece as well as tool wear; mechanical behavior; strength and formability of the work piece material, durability of the work pieces size effects; basic description of effects occurring due to the fact, that the quantitative relation between different features changes with decreasing size process windows and limits for forming processestool making methods; numerical modeling of processes and process chains; quality assurance and metrology. The book comprises information from actual research and the young history of this technology branch to be used by students, scientists and engineers in industry who already have a background in metal forming and want to expand their knowledge.
