The present work aims to develop a steel ferrule forming by a low-contact deformation process using numerical analysis. Two Finite Elements (FE) models have been developed within ABAQUS. The first one is a 3D model that can both calculate the forming geometry of the part and the forces applied on the roller. The second one is a 2D axisymmetric model allowing reducing the CPU time without important loss of accuracy on the final part geometry. We present in this paper a mixed experimental/numerical comparison performed with each model and discuss the results with measurements coming from a part manufacturing by the industrial partner.
